Default Re: Can someone please help me build a computer?

When building a computer, you really only have 2 enemies:

1. ESD: ElectroStatic Discharge. Static electricity can destroy your parts if you don't stay grounded.

2. Common Sense. If it doesn't fit, don't force it to.

Each part has a designated slot, no other part will fit there, and it wont fit backwards/sideways.

Don't necessarily have to buy something, just take your time, take off your socks, work in just shorts or boxers to avoid touching clothes, and touch something metal (Nonpainted) every once in a while
2. Common Sense. If it doesn't fit, don't force it to.
Duh The only thing that takes force is RAM, BUT, look at the RAM check if it is lined up and put it in until the things on the side click into place (This does take some force)

Just kidding, in boxers is a good idea though. Clothes = static.

But please, if you drop some packaging DO NOT pick it up in short boxers, your helper doesn't want to see that
Long boxers you're ok

All joking aside, it is actually pretty easy.

It's easy but rewarding at the same time however.
Now it's not as easy as buying a computer, but it's for like some strange reason fun, and rewarding.

And you get more out of your hard-earned cash.
