Are you tired of looking up catalogs for the perfect pre-built machine? I had also this kind of problems. For example, I fall in love on on pre-build computer and soon realized that does not have the Video Card I want. Then I saw the next computer, but the processor was not the one I wanted, and so on.
Looking up for the most suitable machine is very exhausting. And there is one more fact: If you build your own machine you spend a lot of money. Because someone had to do it for you, this is why all the pre-build computers are more expensive. If you do it on your own, even the most powerful computer built by you can be very cheap.
Build Your Own Gaming Computer – What do I need to know?
You must have the basic knowledge of the basic parts of the computer. But once you master it you can easily put together a computer that suits you the most. For instance, you need to know how to attach the processor (core of any machine) to the motherboard, which slot on the motherboard is for the Graphic (Video) Card, how to attach the RAM (Random Access Memory) to the motherboard.
Most of all is that you need to know which parts to buy. What I mean is that many people buy (or build) a computer that does not even use all of its power. This means that many people have too powerful computer for their needs, and they spend too much money for nothing.
When you strive to put all the parts together you also need to know how to install your chosen OS (operating system). It is also quite simple these days, because the wizard takes you step by step and you can not ruin anything.
