Default Re: New to Building

Honestly I was exactly where you were as far as having a crappy PC and a little techno-common knowledge. I can tell you exactly where I learned everything I know after that and how I progressed.

I learned it all HERE! Best thing to just pick up and learn is to read posts. I've read countless threads and just practiced it on my own. It's nice to have a problem and remember I read a thread that got solved with the same issue.

OK, me again! =D just a quick question. Ive got this computer back together mostly, just waiting on the RAM to get here to see if it works. all except for the fact that i dont have any screws that fit the mounting brackets for the disc drive. is there any certain kind or what? like certain size or anything, Im pretty oblivious to stuff like this.
