Default Reasons Why You'd Build A Computer...

Ive compiled some reasons why I would build a computer, anyone else wanna add on?

1) To gain the experience
2) For the pride
3) So that it becomes custom-made
4) You cannot get angry with your own computer
5) For the adventure
6) To burn some cash
7) So that you can go 'Ohhhh.... So this is how it works'
8) To know how a card looks like
9) So that if anything goes wrong, you'd know the exact problem.
10) For the heck of it

Wanna add-on?
