It can be a little intimidating the first time you do it, but actually assembling a custom built computer is truly not super difficult. Most instructions/manuals are good enough that you can follow their instructions.

The motherboard manual generally has the best instructions for installing the CPU, Video Card, hard drives, etc. And individual items usually have their own instructions as well.

You could certainly try to build it yourself if you're courageous enough. :)

If you were local I'd build it for you.

You could build it and then send it to me.

Have you done this before?

December 31, 2008 5:48:08 PM

Some people do, I'm not sure of names though. However most of them build and sell on ebay. Usually nothing as high as an i7 for ebay though.They would have to have assurance it would sell so I'm not sure whether pulling it off would be easy. I would try your own build. Use the forums and learn, people will help you for any problems you encounter.
December 31, 2008 5:51:50 PM

Yeah. Definitely build it for yourself. It is not terribly difficult. I learned how to do it by simply using the computer I used before my first custom build just by cracking it open and see how it was setup inside. Learned by example :D 

And I would not recommend trusting folks with your parts online, in any case. Not saying any single individual here is shady, but you never know.

Check a local computer shop. They will allow you to pick out your own components and give you a warranty. It will cost you though.

Build it yourself, I am confident that you can.

I have done/will only do for local. Too much liability/risk otherwise.

Like the others here, I encourage you to build it yourself. Be courageous, seek help, ask lots and lots of questions (of course, only after doing your own research). It doesn't have to be as intimidating as it seems.
December 31, 2008 6:06:21 PM

It's a very easy process and I'm more than confident that you could get the job done if you try.

I believe that Roadrunner custom builds systems. I'm sure he'll post here later when he sees this...
December 31, 2008 6:24:46 PM

Think there are 2 or 3 people who do it fairly cheap.

I'm with everyone else though, research a little and do it yourself, the most fun about a new computer is building it yourself.

Max at MaxforcePC. Post your specs and get a reply in less than a day. TH gave them a pretty good review this year. The website offers a forum you can use to see what others are buying . . . much like this one. I speak from experience - click on my logo to view my maxforce pc.

Correct. I build systems and ship all over. PM me and I will give you my contact details.
December 31, 2008 6:54:40 PM

You guy's are great!

I will go and try to build it myself.

They only thing I need help on buying is the Mother board.

I am not comfortable with OCing so I will not need a liquid cooled CPU.
Should I buy additional cooling? I want to keep it as quiet as I can.

This is what I am thinking of building:

Please let me know what other brands I can look at to keep the cost down.

Around $1,800.

December 31, 2008 7:04:10 PM

Well you get faster level load times.

I left my contact info in the PM.

Sence when has Tomshardware turned into a free advertising agency for pseudo Computer Companies?

Who is the Moderator for this forum?
December 31, 2008 7:48:21 PM

I see no advertising here. He asked a question, and he got his answer.
December 31, 2008 8:22:45 PM

Really?

I build computers for a living. Mine are better, less expensive and come with a BIG warranty.

PM me for details!

Now the little people come out with their immature comments. Grow up!

Don't get me wrong, if people are hawking their wares, feel free to jump on them, but that was clearly not the case in this thread.

I guess I overreacted as well.

Happy New Year.

rsetter1,

I received a few people that have asked me to PM them and I have and I will PM you also.
This is exactly what this forum is for to help other people.

I haven't decided if I want to try to build my own or contact someone like you to have one built.
I will PM you.

Dose anyone know if there is a HOW-to-Book on building Gaming PC's?
At least that discusses the main components such as CASE, Mother Board, Power Supply, CPU, wiring, lighting.........liquid cooling or other alternatives?

I would get the 64 bit OS and just build it yourself man...I was scared as **** when I done my first one but once I got started it was a piece of cake...It's an awesome feeling knowing that you put it together yourself. For me the most nerve wrecking part was making sure I got the cpu cooler on right...
January 1, 2009 12:23:29 PM

Thanks I just changed it to 64......oversight.

How much will I have to pay for the OS? $199.99?
if it's not $99.00 and someone can build the system for me and get the OS for 99.99 then that would be enough to have someone else build it for me.
