OK , so I've have pulled my old computer apart a few times, and successfully made it go again. I'm brimming with confidence.. why pay someone too much for a computer that doesn't quite suit my needs anyway.. I'm going to build my own!!!What are the best parts to buy.. I want the best but the car payment is due... Oh My God that processor is 2000 bucks!! Surely I don't need one quite that expensive.. do i??Of course, the

coming from a computer design company this means a lot, and im only going to comment on one part… the OSas far as operating systems go, you can get a windows operating system for a lot less if you are building a PC, in fact, it comes with a totally different license agreement, these are called System Builder Licenses, which basically means, if your building a pc, we will give you a cheaper os just so you buy our brandand its a good dealso remember, if you build a pc, and want windows, make sure your getting a system builders copy.March 19, 2009 at 4:47 am #30650MitzKeymaster
I havent mentioned OEM (original equipment manufacturers) operating systems as in Australia, its very hard to get suppliers to part with them unless you actually have a business that resells PC. You can get them on ebay readily enough though, and perhaps I should have mentioned this. The average user who goes into a PC shop and asks for an OEM version of Windows will not usually be sold one.OEM versions can also create problems if you want to reinstall. I've had arguments with the Asian girls at the Microsoft support centre who insisted that I couldnt activate the OEM version again, as it had already been installed in a computer. I won of course, as they have no way of proving that I havent just had a hardware fault, but I've found it a whole bunch easier to get retail versions of Windows reactivated. As someone who does this for a living, you are more than welcome to add any other details or corrections to this post. I'm just a geek, and always willing to learn or be corrected.

It is no more easy to assemble those technical things in PC if you don't have any information regarding this context.January 2, 2013 at 6:44 am #30655okidoquiParticipant
I have read the post for building your own computer and its really great. Anyone with little knowledge of assembling parts can make their computer. However, for newbies it would be a little tough task to do.
