Building Your Own Computer: What the Experts Don't Want to Tell You

 


Visitors: 159

If I could offer any words of advice to a first time computer builder, it would be these: not only is building a computer easier than it seems, it’s easier than anyone is willing to tell you.

Why do “experts" want to make building a pc look like a combination of rocket science and alchemy? Why should leading books in the field be 700 pages long? The answer is simple. Money.

Long books justify a big price tag, $35 or more. But how many of those 700 pages have information that you really need in putting a computer together? Perhaps 100.

So what are the other 600 pages comprised of? Often, they’ll tell you how to do the same thing over and over, in order to build different kinds of pc’s, like gamers, business computers, video editing rigs, and so forth.

This does sell books. But the first time builder should be told it’s not the way the parts are put together that makes them a gamer, or business computer. It’s the parts you select. The parts go together the same way no matter what the computer is to be used for.

That being the case, why not tell first timers the truth. A computer has only eleven major parts. Most of them snap together, or plug in. Anybody that can connect just eleven items can build a computer.

The great fun, for the beginner, or the old hand, is planning that perfect combination of CPU, motherboard, and all the other things that go into a computer. There’s no need to worry about how they fit together. That can be learned in an afternoon.
