So, I've got two busted laptops that I hook up to my TV every now and then, and a netbook that I rely on for every day use. None of these provide me with much power, and I have to use the different computers to run different programs. That said, I'm looking to put together a desktop computer that can handle all of my needs, while still using my netbook for on-the-go computing. I've decided on putting one together because I like choosing all of my options and it'd be more rewarding to make my own than just go out and pick a computer. I've replaced RAM, hard drives, and USB ports, but other than that I don't have much experience with computer hardware. I've done some googling on how to put one together, but a lot of what I'm reading is complicated and and grossly technical. Has anyone here put together a computer? I'm not trying to put together a supercomputer, just something with nice hard drive space, processing power, and media capabilities. I don't do much pc gaming (I rely on consoles for that), but I would like something that can handle HD videos. I'm looking for tips, advice, and suggestions on how to go about this. Thanks for any help. edit - I found some guides that helped me understand some of the technical jargon that comes with CPUs and Motherboards, and managed to pick out most of the components I think I might be getting. Processor - Intel Core i5 750 (2.66 GHz 8 MB) Motherboard - Intel DP55KG Memory - Crucial 4GB (2GBx2) 10600 DIMM DDR3 Video Card - Sapphire Radeon HD 5770 Optical Drive - Samsung Internal Blu-Ray Hard Drive - Western Digital 1TB Green SATA 64 MB Cache Power Supply - Corsair CMPSU - 750TX Cooling Fan - Corsair Hydro H50 I still need to pick out a case, and with my current configurations I'm looking at around $930.
