Question Need help building a PC in Philadelphia area

Would someone in the Philadelphia area be willing to help me build a high-end workstation? This involves face-to-face interaction and helping me understand what we're doing and why we're doing it as we progress. I'm willing to pay for your time.

Thanks.

O, this forum is fairly small, I dunno if you are going to get anyone to actually be able to help you in person.

^Local computer shops meaning small businesses, if you go to Best Buy or something they'll give you n00bformation and try to sell you parts at outrageous prices. A good thing to do is order your parts on Newegg.com - Buy Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, Digital Cameras and more! and build it yourself or have a professional put it together if you like.

I live about 2 and a half hours away from Philadelphia. Pay my rates and you got my help.

That includes, the following:

1. $.52/mile
2. $80/hour On-Site Training Fee
