This question must have been answered before but I couldn't find any info !I'm looking to build my fisrt computer. In the past I've change a power supply, dvd writer and gpu. NCIX (where i'll buy my rig) is charging 50$ to assemble the computer, so i figure that I can do it by myself. I think it can be fun to do it too ! Is it hard to do ? Is there anyone that can suggest me websites that can explain me step by step way to do it ?
And bout the software part, is it hard to start windows 7 from scratch ?
Building your own machine isnt all that hard, everything can only plug in one way and into one place. Only tricky bit is heat-sinks, some have pretty complicated mounting mechanisms. Software wise isnt all that complicated either, its more just going through a checklist getting drivers and such.
Manofchalk covered everything... The only thing I would add is put your power supply in and plug it in to the wall so you have a ground and can touch the case to remove your static charge. This will protect components you touch from getting fried.
