Not too new now...

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey all,

I'm not all that new to OCN now, but I wanted to take a moment and put up a thank you post and this seemed the most appropriate place to put it.

So, I got the wild idea to build my own computer about 6 months ago with no experience or prior knowledge. Didn't even have a clue what a mother board was. But, I decided to educate myself and do the damn thing. I did my homework and research for a few months, learning what parts are and what they do, then I learned myself a bit on operating systems. Then I picked out all my parts and eventually talked myself into actually buying them....

Let the frustrations begin!!!

Everything that could have gone wrong, of course did. It was a long process that I struggled though each step of the way, from hardware to the most frustrating... the drivers that caused numerous bsod's....

But, I'm very thankful to have had support from everyone here at OCN. I had a lot of questions, and a large number of them were super noob questions, and everyone that helped me from the beginning picking parts and finding out why this or that was doing whatever it was or wasn't doing. I seriously don't know what I would have done without the help of others on here, googling things can only get you so far sometimes.

So, thank you. I really appreciate it.

What I appreciated most was everyones patience with me, not once did anyone make me feel stupid, or discourage me from continuing with computer building.

Thank you,
E
