Overview

If you can operate a screwdriver and follow instructions, you can build the most complicated PC! This simple assertion by Mike and Tony Harris could revolutionize the way people look at computers. Building instead of buying will save you hundreds, perhaps thousands, of dollars and will enable you to repair your PC and successfully upgrade it to keep it current, saving you even more money. This book uses photos and easy-to-understand instructions to demonstrate that regardless of which processor or system speed you choose, the actual assembly is exactly the same. The Harris' guide you through the process of determining what kind of computer you need, purchasing and successfully assembling the hardware and installing the software. You'll end up with a better and cheaper system than you could have bought pre-assembled.
