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).
