That's okay for building. Doesn't really do too well of a job on explaining what to look for. People will still come here for those rare problems.

Yeah, it seems a little oversimplified. The first time you put together a whole PC the chances of it booting up right away with no issues are slim to none.

Experience.

There's so many little things that can go wrong. Unless you spend hours reading up on computers, the first time you do it you're bound to make mistakes.

Huh, I never knew that.

Just think, in all these years of building computers, I must have been getting lucky to have mine boot up for the first time.

Not bad. The noobs will still come. If you build it... They will come. If they build it... They will come.

That's a great website for people who worry about building their own computer. While it truly is for beginners, I just watched the entire thing and think it is great for many people.

Convince your grandma to build her own computer. Call it Gramsung.
