Default Re: where did u learn

My step dad showed me a lot of stuff. But then I expanded that knowledge and got where I was today.

We always get into arguments cause I know more now!

But he's not really into Computers anymore, more into Home Theater systems.

It started with being introducted to Battlefield 2 set up on a computer at Fry's, which made me buy a new video card and power supply for my Compaq I had a while back. Eventually I replaced the motherboard and started building my own computers.

Well I bought a $1500 of hardware, and I magically put it together.

I've known about computers from about grade 2 when i fixed them alot, but that $1500 rig 3 years ago was my first actual build
