Default How many of you built your own build?

Well I built my own built once, did not work because faulty parts then went pcspecialists. What about the rest of you?

Have I been helpful? Consider giving me a Kudos

Default Re: How many of you built your own build?

ive always built my own. Most worked first time, or had some small, easy fixed problem (such as a bad psu, or crashed hdd)
ive built quite a few. Right now, I have 8-10 which are working, and maybe 2 which have a few faults.

Talking Re: How many of you built your own build?

I've built my own since 2003. LOL but I think I build one every 6 months. I get bored of the old ones.
I also build for others and charge between $100-200 for labor. Put it this way, all my builds are paid by customer builds or repairs. I've made more money off of the repairs.
I'm no tech and still learning but it's fun to charge $50 to install avg free edition and wipe some viruses away.
