Guys i need some help before even ordering my parts - Page 2

post #11 of 12
The hardest part of building a pc is selecting all the components you want that are within your budget. Putting it together is easy, and fun also. I'm no seasoned pro by any stretch, I've put together 2 pcs by myself, and helped in the putting together of two others. I have also tore apart my own pc dozens of times to troubleshoot problems. It would be nice if you could convince your dad to let you do it because if you can put a jigsaw puzzle together you can put a pc together. I would be blown away if someone actually managed to put something like ram in the wrong slot. Show your father how easy the build is by watching the videos, you really can't put parts in the wrong slots without using great force, and maybe a hammer.
