Agreed, the one I'm using now is my first build...built it when I was 13. Sure, I made some stupid part selections like a motherboard that only supported DDR RAM and an old IDE HDD...and I forgot to install the motherboard standoffs xD But it works great, and it was a great experience and now I feel much more able to build a better structured and overall improved PC. And (if you want) you can tell people you built your own computer..and for most people, who don't know anything about computers, will think you're lying. They think it's an incredibly complex process that only scientists can do xD
Quite simply, the hardest part is selecting the parts. The guys here can help you with that. The rest is like Legos..with a +12 logo on the box
