I had Zero hardware experience before coming here. None. now i've got a custom watercooled/OC PC with a slightly modded case.

Just gotta be willing to learn and spend the time.

Heck I was even showing my mom stuff as I was goin along and shes an e-tard haha. She even pointed out a thing or two I forgot to plug in and such.


but yeah dude, it can seem a pretty daunting task to start off doing, but with the guys here to help out it really isn't hard at all. Especially if you do your homework. Pre-built computers most of the time are nothing but legitimate scams. Alienware charging 5k for a 2000-3000$ system. Theres no way labour costs 2-3 grand haha.

Hmm. I bought a PS3 to not spend a 'G+ building a computer. But my inner geek told me just to build one. Just didn't like the shade of orange.

well its hard to compare console to pc directly because the games are more tailor made for console, thus extremely optimised.

but spec wise that pc blows 360 and ps3 out of the water. very nice build. A+
