I am a graphic design student in NOLA. I am currently in the planning stages of building a computer. I am what you would call a newbie at building computers. To be honest, a week or two ago, I was thinking it would be too hard... BUT I've done a lot of reading, YouTube watching, and researching and come to the realization that it really isn't that hard at all (even before actually starting the building process, I don't really see myself ever NOT building my own PC again).
That being said, I think I have a pretty firm grip on what I'm doing and would feel comfortable actually putting a computer together. I kind of have all the components picked out, I just want to get it approved by people who actually have experience before I go do something stupid!
I'll make a thread in one of the building forums in the next couple of days. I would greatly appreciate any advice/recommendations you guys can give me or if you just want to tell me what you think, that'd be great!
