Building Your Own Computer is the creation of 10 years of accumulated experience. This book contains knowledge of common pitfalls not contained in other books, manuals, sites, etc... It also explains technical vocabulary, (though it doesn't use any) and it will fit into anyone's busy day no matter how much time you have. Unlike other 300+ page books on the market, this is a very literal and to the point book, and is great for people who are new to the field of computers. This book will help you develop an educated decision between the cost, performance, your current needs, and future needs of each part, depending on how you use a computer.
Building Your Own Computer will give you the tools necessary to understand what each component is, does, what the most important features are, and how to make the most efficient choices to get the most bang for your buck from your components, while remaining useful for at least the next 12 years. Building Your Own Computer includes pictures, covers several warnings, and offers troubleshooting steps that you just can't find in a manual. Once you pick up this book, getting some hands on experience can't come soon enough!
