Default MAking your own pc

Is making your pc really cheaper? i hope so ! Is it hard to make a pc?(consider thatvmy family arent big ol techies and stuff though we got knowledge). And how would we know what motherboard to get and if all the pieces are compatible with eachother?

Yes it is cheaper.

Not too hard either.

Research, research, research. Figure out what you want and how fast you want it, then check the specifications to see if they are all compatible with each other.
