Ive seen a guide or 2 on how to build your own PC, some good, some not so good. The one Ive used is.. buildyourown.org.uk. I know ill probably have problems with it anyway with it being my first time building one. I was wondering if anyone knows any good sites that recommend good PC parts, reviews, user reviews and stuff like that? Would be of good help, thanks. Thanks for the answers
>Computer Case - quiet and as big as you need (make sure of the form-factor: ATX is a regular motherboard, micro-ATX only is for small motherboards)
>Motherboard - Intel-based or AMD-based. Make sure it supports your processor and RAM (more later)
>Processor - comes with a heatsink+fan. This is the hardest part to install, and it's really straightforward nowadays.
>RAM - ddr2 is the normal...check your motherboard, but DDR2 800 should be fine. The more the merrier.
>Video Card - if you want to play games (the form is PCI express...make sure your motherboard has this). If you're not playing games, try and get a motherboard with onboard video.
>Hard Drive and DVD Drive - selfexplanatory
You're done! Now get a monitor, keyboard, mouse, speakers, printer....whatever....but you're done with the inside of the computer.
and my personal favorite:
