I am thinking about building my own computer and am wondering if it is worth it. I have never taken on this type of task and am wondering if someone knows the basics about computers can this be accomplished. I`m looking to build a kickass computer for graphics and speed. I want to use the i7 processor but not sure which motherboard.
Yes building your own computer is worth it, you get experience, save money and can optimize it perfectly for your needs. Just read some guides, it is pretty straight forward.
Just look for a motherboard which has what you need, it has to be the same socket as the processor. For example i7 is on socket 1156 and 1366, then both of these have different chipsets P55 and X58. If you don't know about this then read up about it. Then just choose a motherboard which fits your requirements, do you need Crossfire/SLI, SATA/ USB 3.
