Your First PC Build
Building your own PC is rewarding in a number of ways, from the huge sense of satisfaction it gives, to the potential savings you can make. If you have never seen the inside of a computer, or even if you have some basic knowledge, this guide is the perfect way to increase your knowledge and bolster your confidence of PC building.

Building your own PC is not something everyone will want or need to do. It takes some time, planning and careful thought, and it isn’t always the best possible way to get a new computer for your budget. However, if you want to feel a great sense of satisfaction, save money, learn more about how computers work, and set yourself up to be able to solve hardware problems in the future, we recommend it to anyone who needs to get either their first PC, or replace an old one. This guide, aimed at the first time builder, takes you through every step, from planning the system to installing components and adding essential software.
