Beginners Guides: Assembling Your Own PC - Beginners Guides: Assembling Your Own PC
Mon, April 19 2004 | 10:23PM | PermaLink Feedback?
A couple of years working as a Tech at a computer store taught me that some folks should not ever be allowed near a computer that is not securely locked behind a bombproof enclosure. But for most people I think, building a computer from a pile of components just requires a little guidance to get them on the right track. The thing is, the majority of non-techie people that I know have this almost superstitious awe of computers which requires them to make pilgrimages to the local computer store every time they want something added, upgraded, or replaced in their machine. I have to admit that charging $65 for the 10 minutes of labour required (computer must be left for service overnight of course) is somewhat thrilling.... though really not necessary if you know a few basic things about what lies under the hood so to speak. The key then, is to familiarize people with computers as another appliance that may sometimes need a little attention, and not just as a magic box that enables them to use Photoshop. Building a computer will do this. Call it your own little self-help project. Plus, you can always Donate a few dollars from the money you'll save on labour to us in gratitude. :)
