pc specialist have some really good 'base units' which you can then customise, i got my base from there and added components myself. Theyre good at customer service as well if you need help. You can even email them with requirements and budget and theyll come up with a few options.

Havnt I already got somebody else to build my PC
And they seem easy to build from what you guys tell me, so I guess I'll give it a go, it just sounds daunting I guess. Although I don't like the sound of 'thermal paste', is it just me does plastic, angry mothers and 600 computer components not mix?

And I had always heard minecraft used as the ultimate test of a PC, so of it runs on a toaster show what I know!

Minecraft is a lot more unstable than most games because Notch is not too great at coding, the vannila game used to run on only 1 core meaning even if you had a beastly pc you would still get things like chunk errors.

I belive the games considered to be most pc intensive would be those used for benchmarks, crysis and battlefield 3 were the two main ones last time i checked.

I would just like to say, I've watched a tutorial on how to build a PC, and I dont like it
I just seems far to fragile, what with having to avoid anykinf of conductive material, keeping your static down, and all that, plus the stakes are too high for me
Whether it's just the tutorial I'm watching (newegg) or that's it, I would rather get it prebuilt unless it saves me a significant amount of money, because the 'I built that' factor just doesn't out weigh the chance of breaking 600 worth of computer!

And cypher, when I tried to piece together the awesome PC that you designed, some of the componants weren't there, or rather I couldn't find them
Such as the case off the top of my head

Dude just get a Commodore 64. They run fine and they can handle pretty much any game that you throw at it. I use it and it works great, runs Path of Exile just fine.

Seems legit...

I know building a pc is daunting at first Kito but it is really very simple. Static is not that big a deal, so long as you apply common sense static will not effect you. I built my first pc on carpet without any knowledge of static and it still runs fine to this day.

It is just a case of putting everything in the case then pligging it into the motherboard/psu. It's difficult to make a mistake because most connectors will only plug into one slot.

I bet you 10 (if you have paypal) that if you give it a shot you will be fine.

A quick google search has revealed that the commodor 64 looks like a 20tg century keyboard and box, is that right?!?!

He was joking about the commodore 64.

As for building yourself vs. pre-built, you WILL save a lot by building it yourself and there is no need to fear the building process, my grandma can do it.

Here's the best possible "build a PC" guide available on the tube:


It's a higher cost PC, but the process of building is the same. It really is easy. Like playing with Lego.

I've had recurring nightmares
That I was loved for who I am
And missed the opportunity
To become a better man

Thanks, I guess it's easier than converting, just the stakes are higher =D
