Hey buddy, welcome.
Pretty much everyone on this forum has built their own computer, and it's much easier than you would think. If you can build Legos, than you can build a computer.. all it takes is following some simple instructions.
If you decided to make the leap and try it, we'll be here to help you out every step of the way!
Basically you need to count all the parts that you have and make sure you get everything. Depending on what you want to use the computer for and what the budget is you buy different parts (and we will help you chose what parts). Then all it is is putting it together. You don't need to know how to program or do anything.. it's just plugging in cables and all in all very straightforward - the instruction manuals that come with all the parts tell you exactly how to do it, and if you can't figure anything out just post on this forum and you'll have your questions answered VERY quickly.Edited by NoodleGTS - 12/18/08 at 4:13pm
