i’m soon going to get a computer here, but i’d like to learn how to put computers together, rather than simply purchasing one already put together. basically, what i’d like to do is buy all the components: motherboard, cpu, video card, etc. etc. etc. by myself and then put it all together and install the software.
does anyone have any experience doing this? would you recommend doing it, or just getting one already put together? obviously, it’d be easier for me to just get one put together for me, but i’m wondering whether it’s going to be well beyond my abilities. i’ve tinkered around the inside of a computer before, but it’s been mostly maintenance and replacing components, rather than putting it all together.
