CPU | MOTHERBOARD | GRAPHICS CARD | RAM | DATA STORAGE | POWER SUPPLY | CASE

Introduction

 

Building a desktop PC is often a very rewarding project. The build itself may not be less expensive then a similar fully assembled computer sold at your local electronics store. However, it often times is very specific meeting all of your computing needs giving it the highest value option in todays computing. Building a computer is really not all that hard. If you can follow a simple diagram or instruction manual and have no problems with minor assembly, assembling a computer will be relatively easy.

 

Getting Started

To get started it is highly recommended to follow each of the above tabs in order from left to right. Or you may follow the next page link at the bottom of each page.

 

Needed Tools and Preparation

Only common tools that are found in everybodies tool box are used for the entire build assembly. This may include a flat head screw driver, phillips screw driver and small sockets. Some minor preperation is not required but certainly recommended. It is recommended to ground yourself so that you are free from any static electricity that may damage the board. To do so this will involve touching something that is grounded. This may be as simple as touching the outer metal case on a device that is grounded or the main water line coming in to your household. Other items such as a clean towel to lay parts on is not a bad idea. A small container that can hold loose screws is also not a bad idea.
