Hi my name is Jenn and I'm a computer idiot (sometimes). I've owned 2 computers in my adult life the first was a giveaway HP. It was new, but it was sucky back then. Then I moved on to a much more better Compaq (*note sarcasm* don't fall out of your chair laughing.... :thumbsup: it's painful to me as it is).
Anyway when I decided to upgrade to things like better graphics cards and such, I realized that....well I realized what a piece of crap my computer was and that I was really going to have to move onto a new motherboard entirely and well....that's where the reasons lie in why I am here at this particular site.

If you are thinking about building your own computer, I certainly think it is a worthwhile project. You not only get a better computer, better documentation, but you know precisely what is "inside."
We have many members who have built their own, and they can certainly help you with advice and any information you need.
Welcome to BC!
Regards,
John
