I always hear and read about how it's better (and cheaper) to build your own gaming pc instead of buying a custom one from a manufacturer like Alienware. But since I know very little about building PC's, I wonder if there's a way to learn without having to pay for a class. Does anyone have any suggestions?
First there is a motherboard which everything plugs into
Then theres the processor, think of it as a brain
Then ram, it makes multitasking easy
Then the hdd also like the brain but only for storage
Everything plugs into the motherboard with wires.
