I am considering build for my next PC. Thanks for this guide. Given that the MOBO is one of the key things to take care of, is there a better MOBO for new builders? Like who has the best users manuals? Should I do a cheaper build while I am on the learning curve, or does it matter. Do I want a larger case to go with my big clumsy hands?
No need to look for a special MOBO or a super stready one. As long as you handle them with general care and remove any static electricity before dealing with them, there is nothing to worry about. I would sticky with ASUS, Gigabyte or EVGA motherboards. Those three seem to be the best from my experience over the years. Support is good and manuals are good (well as good as any manual seems to be
). I would build what you want to build. You can have the same issues with a highend PC as you can on a lowend PC. Since all the parts are new, you have issues you can't figure out, RMA components back with very little issues. A bigger case is easier to work with since you have more room. In the end, you want to purchase a case to fit your build needs and apperance factors. How easy it is to work with on the inside is a lower priority.
