How?

I'm 59 yrs. old and I would like to build a system , or find someone trust worthy. I'll need allot of help. If anyone is ready for such a large task, I'd sure appriciate it.

Kindest regards,
BJ

  1. from what i know, ncix can do it for you for 50 bucks. just that you have to order everything from them and that it would take a while since they have to ship it from canada.

    you can build it yourself. things just screw into place. kind of like lego
  2. yeah, i would recommend building it, but I'm sure everyone here would say the same thing. Its really not as hard as it sounds, watch a few YouTube videos and you will see that its very simple, you just need a bit of spare time.

    ncix has a place in the states now. whether they have the kinks worked out yet... ???

    building isn't hard. common sense and lots of pre- familliarization. software is usually the tougher of the two. but if you don't go overboard, and ask questions, you should be okay.

  5. ncix has been in the states for almost 3 years now. just that pcpartpicker hasnt been listing them lately and that building service has to be specially requested
  6. Newegg also has pretty informative video's. A series of three if they haven't updated.
  7. I know a lot of people near my area, that build for cheap. But you have to be careful with people like that. They may screw something up and not take the blame, but take the money.

    Section 4 is the Toms guide for the process, a lot is covered but as mentioned, check out other guides and videos on the net to get a feel for things, we are here to answer anything you might need to ask along the way should you decide to build yourself,
    And yup, it is easy to do once you know your way around the basics, after your first you'll be itching to do more :)

  9. Yeah, Pick your parts and then check with us for compatability as well as efficiency as related to your planned usage, we will let you know if it will all work together and if there may be a better component or price of component for your build.
    Most of the build is just a little simple mechanics. Once it is all together you can power on to test for a post beep, and then just load windows and maybe a couple of drivers.
