Lasrix is right, it's not hard. The first one I built six years I did with hardly any experience with the guts of a computer. My experience up to that point was composed of putting a CD drive in my sister's computer.

lol , i havent even had that experience,

ill look more into it ,

this manual that the one guy talkd about getting with the motherboard,

is it pretty detailed

i might be able to do it if it says , connect this here, connect that there


what happens if the tower you buy to install all of your self , winds up and isnt big enough or small enough on teh inside.

Then dont get a mid tower for a case, get a full size one. The size difference is obvious.

Motherboard manuals are detailed. Quite. Some even come with Stickers of where things are connected, like mine :-D.

EDIT: Oldpic of my Fullsize Tower =



Cheers-

my suggestion is to get someone to build your parts

not your local retards that overcharge though

www.monarchcomputers.com

just choose your specs, they build it and ship it to you

Isn't small enough should not be a problem.

Isn't big enough shouldn't be a problem either, unless you order 20-year old parts.

i think its going to be too copmlicated espeacially looking at your picture. lol , i can afford all this , but its still expensive purchase for me.

oh , i dont play games what so ever, on my pc, i play playstation , i mean i know i need a video card , for mov. , avi. ect, but its not an important issure for me to have a video card from heaven, i wont be watching dvds on it. just burning them .

in all honesty i do think it would be fun trying to build one , but im not sure , i will have to think about it some more, im guessing your twower comes with the brackets for your boards, and everythign to sit on?


how long does it take to put it all together ?
