12 Easy Ways To Build Your Own
Building a computer from scratch gives you the perfect machine for your needs, but it can be daunting the first time around. Here's our complete guide, from picking the parts, to putting it together and installing your OS.
Why should I build my own personal computer?
You can build your own pc exactly how you want it, as best fits your computing needs. When you build your own computer, it truly is a "personal" computer.That's a good question. After all, it's a lot easier to buy a computer from a reputable computer shop than it is to build one yourself. But the truth is that most of us computer geeks and geeklings build our own computers simply because we enjoy it. We think it's fun. But aside from being fun, there are other advantages to building your own computer. For example:
- Building a PC is an educationally rewarding experience that can enrich a person's knowledge of and appreciation for applied math, electronics, and physics.
- Sometimes a home-built computer can be less expensive than a comparably equipped store-bought computer, especially if you start with a barebones computer kit.
- Building computers is an enjoyable hobby with the potential to lead to a career. In fact, many IT professionals got their start by building their own computers.
As was mentioned above, when you design your own computer, you can build it to suit the things you want it to do. The days when all computers had to do was check e-mail and surf the Web are over. A high-end smart phone or a decent tablet can do those things (and much more) well enough. But for gaming, CAD/CAM applications, high-end video editing, and other specialized tasks, there's no better way to get the machine you need than to design and build it yourself.
