Hello

So I have had nothing to do this summer so I thought why no build a computer and I had a couple of questions

1 I am 13 and I was wondering if building a computer is hard I do not know a lot about computers but i have overclocked a laptop and replaced ram on a laptop before and was wondering if it is going to be hard to build a computer

2 I know they say the hardest part of building a computer is all the components have to be compatible so here are my components and is there a way to improve or make cheaper thanks here are the parts bty I already have a monitor its dvi connection

as far as cheap boards go I would grab this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

More upgradability (if you say want to put in a bulldozer chip later on) plus I hear odd things happen with nvidia onboard + amd cpu... no proof just here-say

(the board I picked out only supports 95w FX cpus so don't expect to OC one to 5GHz or something :)  )

As far as doing the actual building:

Here is a Step-by-Step Guide to Building a PC

Look over the forum's "System won't boot" checklist to see some of the common build errors and how to avoid them.

-> The usual advice; read the manual / install guide; look at the parts, read the manual again and if everything makes sense and looks right - then go ahead with the install.

You can download the online version of the motherboard manual and start getting familiar with it. Same for the other parts you want to order if they have install guides or manuals available.

If you want more ideas on parts choices and possibly less expensive options (sales, rebate, etc):

You might want to jump on over to the Systems > New Build section of the THG forums where they handle about a couple dozen of these requests per day.
And they are more in tune with current prices, sales and combo deals.

If you fill out the form in *How To Ask For New Build Advice* you'll answer all the standard questions that help things get started

^Slightly better.... immensely better - anybody scanning through Tom's does not want to follow each and every link to look at your choices. Do us and yourself a favor - make it easier for the people you want to help you.

Also start watching youtube videos of how to build them. If you watch enough of them you should be able to figure out a good way to do things. (some will have wrong spots so its important to watch enough of them.) If you see it being done then when it comes time to do it yourself it will be a lot easier.

Those are probably a good place to start. You might want to watch a few more just in case they have other tips.

Also don't forget this site. If you have a question while building its better to stop and ask then risk blowing something up.
