I have recently become interested in building my own PC. I will never by another OTS rig again as every piece of research I have done has shown me it is far more cost effective to get a high quality PC building it yourself, than it is to order one, or heaven forbid, purchase one from a walk-in retailer.
Here is one resource I highly recommend for anyone looking to get into this themselves. This is a very helpful community and the feature are just awesome.Happy Building
If you want a new idea, go read an old book.
