  1. BUILDING A GAMING PC.

    do you have what it takes to build your own pc?

    it's not as hard as most people will try to tell you it is and with a little research and a few hours of reading you will be able to gain the knowledge of how the whole process works.

    there are alot of good sites around that have great articles and videos that will help to show you how to put a system together step by step.

    for a better understanding of what a gaming pc is and what specs/parts you should aim to use,

    try these keywords in a google search "building a gaming pc" & "budget gaming pc" and read

    some of the articles that show up, but to help you save some time i have also included a few

    of the links that i found to be very help full.

    link 1.

    this site was packed with loads of good info but involves a lot of reading but as a result

    when you have read as much as you can then you will have a better understanding of what it is that you are trying to build.

    this link will take you to a great set of videos on youtube that show all the steps of building a computer, there is seven separate movie that show you a few steps at a time.

    i would also suggest downloading realplayer 11 if you don't already have it so you can download and save these movies to your computer for future reference.

    to download realplayer:

    the next 3 are a bit less reading intensive and you will quickly find there suggested parts list.

    and if after reading all the above you are not you are still a bit uncertain about taking on a build yourself you can always

    talk to friends that may have done it before and ask for there help,

    or take a parts list into a few computer shops in your local area and see what prices they can give you for building the

    system that meets your needs, also searching the keywords "good computer shops in (add your home town here )" in Google and

    look through some of the forums to see what people are saying about the computer stores in your local area to see which ones

    may be the best to go to by the comments that others have left.

    i hope that the above information will help you in achieving your goal.
