The closest one is an hour and 5 minutes awayAre you anywhere near a micro center cause I believe they can offer all the services people here at talking about. IE put it all together for ya
I haven't put one together from scratch, but I've added parts such as RAM, graphics card, and PSU. I'm just a bit nervous I'd get halfway through and then lost. I have a friend that has done it, maybe I can have him come over just to help.I am pretty sure most of us here will help you but I don't know if anyone has the time for a video session well you build it but if you were to do a build log people will happily help ya out but you never know someone her may have the time I just can't speak for anyone, have you ever put a PC together??
There not hard it's just making sure the parts are compatible is the first most important thing then you could watch a few diy build videos I would suggest Linus Tech tips but there are many others who do a very good job
Well thankfully I have my computer on a lower shelf that is pretty big, but I don't think it can accommodate that much more. Do you mind if I PM you with further questions? Its cool if not, you've been a great help so far!As far as the case goes.... pick your motherboard first. The format (mATX, ATX, or mITX) will determine case requirements. Cases are probably the hardest to recommend as they're so subjective, but just about any mini tower will probably do. (Probably don't want a full tower case if you're coming from a small format pre-built... it'll feel like you've erected an apartment building beside your keyboard.
is your current computer a name brand like Dell or something?Well thankfully I have my computer on a lower shelf that is pretty big, but I don't think it can accommodate that much more. Do you mind if I PM you with further questions? Its cool if not, you've been a great help so far!
