Ultimate Computer Building Guide

Recommended Posts

Onion's Computer Building Guide


Hey there =P. I decided to make this guide for the first time builder. A lot of guides on the web are very dispersed and builders usually have to look in multiple resources just to get the information they need. In this guide, everything you will need to know about choosing computer parts and installing them is all in one place for your convenience.

For first time builders, I suggest you follow the tutorial in order from top to bottom. The Bonus Content and Sample Rig is optional and is only there as a reference. If you want me to put together a sample rig for you or have questions that I have not answered in my tutorial, you can just post on my profile or add me on xfire (ID: demonspike).

Table of Contents:

Sample Rig:


This is a just a personal rig I built in the beginning of the year. It just a reference of what you can build for under $700. If you want me to build you a rig, just tell me your budget. I will create a sample gaming computer and post it on the forums.

Its good for the ones that never have built one, but once you build one you pretty much got it.
