5 Tips for Building Your First PC
This is an amazing time to build a PC! Online tutorials are plentiful, and desktop components are so standardized, building a computer is almost foolproof. We say “almost” because, if you haven’t done your homework, you can still mess things up.
Nevertheless, as many PC builders have noted, building a desktop today is pretty much like assembling an adult LEGO set with wires. It can also be a gut-wrenching experience, though, since real money’s on the line. Screwing up a $500 CPU is going to kill your soul and your wallet.
Still, if you’ve done your research and you’re organized, spending an hour (or six) putting together a desktop PC can be a rewarding experience.
These five tips will set you on the road to mastering PC building.
