kisshell2, only you know your technical ability. If you can handle tools ok, can think when small fitting issues come up. Maybe work on your bike or car stereo, then fine. Read the guide that MadAdmiral recommended and learn here on this forum. But if you still want to hire someone, pick the parts, TigerDirect or Newegg are great and look in the yellow pages, find a computer repair shop and tell them what you want and have a price quoted, then shop around and pick one. Then enjoy!!! Best of Luck.
