  • Ultimate PC Building Guide

    Just wanted to pass on this constantly updated PC Building Guide from Nortichardware.com

    Between this awesome guide and the many others out there, I wonder if we should get a sticky going with nothing but PC building guides.

    No offence to DdogG, but those helpful links havent been updated since 05'

    Anyway, you link to the guide:

    PC Building Guide

    It is basic to a point, and gives you a good start on what you need to consider so you can do more in depth research yourself.

    Enjoy................................

        so update them......

        but actually, I had updated them in the past, as I just did again... the original post was made in '05, and editing the post does not change that. I will add your link as well.

        Most links do not change frequently... and 95% of the ones there will be valid for the next decade.

                  This is another like right up there with the best guides I have ever found:

                  The 2008 PC Builder's Bible

                  It helps you from beginning to end pick the right parts, put it all together, and then tweak it to make it fast.

                      New article just posted should help people learn all about harddrive

                      Giz Explains: Everything You Need to Know About Hard Drives

                      Lots of good details, and a really easy read.

                      Site is running a bit slow right now, but should be back to normal in a couple hours.

                        Re: Ultimate PC Building Guide

                        MaximumPC has another good guide. I don't agree with a lot of their recommendations, like the cases they suggest are hideous. But they do have some great explinations about the current status of ATI/Nvidia cards, and a pretty good step by step build guide. Also has a decent overclocking guide.

                            Pretty good guide Maximum PC just posted. It is a video guide on how to do everything when putting together a new PC. Should come in very handy for anyone trying it for the first time.
