Do you want to know how to get the best bang for your buck?

This course will begin with some explanation of different terminology when it comes to PC components. You'll learn how each component connects to each other, their purposes, things to watch out for when purchasing components, and how to decide what parts need to perform better based on the tasks you want the computer will do.

You'll go through the steps of building your first computer piece by piece, with great attention to detail along the way. Afterwhich, you'll learn the process of installing an operating system on the computer, to make the system fully functional and ready to use!

This course will evolve over time.. Later installments may include things like:

  • High-end Gaming PC Builds (Done and added to course!)
