Build your own computer kit?
I was thinking the other day and I was trying to look around google to see if I could find a website store that sold a whole bundle complete computer build kit where they ship you the parts and you assemble it at home. I’m interested in something like this just because I’ll be going to school for it, but I’m not to familiar with every term and part I would need. Has anyone heard or been on a website like this? I havnt been able to find one.

Website for learning how to assemble a computer: YouTube
Just keep watching different videos until you can identify the parts by yourself then when you feel confident enough already...
Website for buying the parts of a computer: NewEgg
...but first, research on the internet about what type will you be assembling. There are so many compatibility issues nowadays so concentrate on building just one and be very careful about choosing parts. If the store has a chat utility, use it to verify if the parts will work together. As much as possible buy by bundle. You may find motherboards bundled with a processor with fan and heat sink and most importantly RAM.

There are plenty of tutorials on building your own pc and it doesn't take much effort to lookup the terms you don't understand on google. You literally take a motherboard, slap a cpu and heatsink on, slap some ram in and hookup a hard drive and power supply and your done. You start with what CPU you want, then pick a motherboard that will accept that CPU. It probably would take you less than a day to familiarize yourself with the whole process. The first build is always scary. Each build after that becomes easier and easier.

there are lots of YouTube videos and step by step instructions. PartPicker's website automatically makes sure you didn't miss anything and that the parts chosen will work reasonably well together.Source(s): homebuilder

The actual assembly of less than an hour involves little knowledge and skills and doesn't get you the optimized personalized result. Building a computer is best done by learning about parts.
