Since you've found this site my guess is you're interested in learning how to build your own computer? I hope it reassures you when I say that if you want to build a computer for yourself then you've found the right place!

Too many people shell out big bucks to have a computer custom built because they think the technology is above them. WRONG! It is well within the means of anyone, even YOU to build a PC. Not only will this site walk you through the process of building a computer, but I will show tons of pictures for each step of the process. If you have the desire to build a PC and you use this site, the only thing keeping you from getting that new computer built is....well, nothing.

Not only is building your own PC, believe it or not, fun, but it is also a very rewarding experience knowing that you put together everything correctly. The great thing about this hobby is that you don't have to have deep pockets to participate, start by upgrading the ram memory in your PC and go from there. Before you know it, you'll be able to build your own PC from stratch, fix any hardware problems easily, and impress your friends with your new talent by helping them to fix their own computers! And talk about the perfect Christmas present.


In order to help you build a PC, I've broken my site down into steps that I think deserve individual attention. The main categories will be listed on the left toolbar, "chop full" of good instructions. I've always been a visual person myself so I've included plenty of pictures! If any picture or part of my instructions are unclear, please don't hesitate to contact me, Robert B.

That about sums up the introduction, so dive in head first and start building that dream PC cheaper than you could ever buy one pre-built!

Tell me your story!

On a side note, if my site helped you to build your own PC, let me know and I'll feature your story and pictures of your pc on my site!
