I Built My Own Computer

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 69 People


    I'm a bit of a gamer so I've been building my own machines for awhile now.  I love that once you have your own custom build, keeping it like new is as simple as a few upgrades every now and then.  Plus I always know what I'm running and what games I can handle.

    Oh Man

    Building a cmoputer was the stupidest and most rewarding thing I've ever done!  I picked out the parts and saved up for almost a year in advance, and ended up spending more on it than I did on my car haha.  The process itself took almost 5 hours as it was my first time...
