I just built my first computer, even though I am not computer literate or a computer aficionado or anything. Mostly I just built it to show my Grandchildren the basics about computer technology, but I also was interested in learning things for myself as well as getting a feather to put into my hat. It is a basic build with an Intel i5 4690 CPU and an Asus Z97-A motherboard. I went with an SSD drive for speed, and I have a 700 watt PSU. The whole thing was fun and I have not had any issues to date, but I am still working out some little software limitations. I am running Microsoft Office Professional 2010 for all of my everyday tasks and Adobe Elements 13 for my photo and video editing. I have a lot of audio software on my system including foobar2000 which I find to be indispensable, Audacity for some basic audio editing, dbPower Amp for ripping and converting and an old Roxio Pro for burning. The whole experience of building a computer from scratch was fun, and I hope it encourages my Grandchildren to learn more about computer science.
