Buying Your Computer Components
Use CPU Benchmarks Data, Motherboard Reviews and More.
Software for your system is more than the standard office type of product (such as a word processor, a spreadsheet program and more).
You also need to consider the software that operates your system and that helps it to operate efficiently (and to troubleshoot it when it doesn't run).
Make sure that you develop a working knowledge of what's available in these areas: operating systems to run your computer; monitoring software to protect your computer; utilities for managing and reporting on the functioning of components, such as the CPU and HD; benchmarking which will compare speed, BIOS and hardware details to other systems; and applications (such as a word processor) to run on your computer.

Thank you for helping me to fix my pc motherboard led indicator.
Hi, I found your site and all the wonderful tutorials. This is just the thing I'm looking for.
The hardest part of the build, I thought, was the wiring. And here your guide really shines. Most of the other computer build guides ignore it, or just say 'connect all the wires properly'. So thanks for the details!
