Interested in building your own computer for the first (or second) time? Looking to do some upgrades but not sure how to go about it? Read on to find out why "Extreme Tech: Build the Ultimate Custom PC" deserves a spot on your shelves.
For anyone thinking about building a computer for the first time, this book is well worth the money. Even if you have built one built one before with some help, or are just looking to learn more about how to install upgrades, I definitely recommend picking this one up. If you're an experienced builder then chances are this isn't the book for you.To start, this book is very well laid out. It's laid out in four sections (three main sections and an Appendix) that take you step-by-step through the entire process, from selecting the components to the actual build and booting up/installing Windows. There are an abundance of pictures throughout the book that really help to make it easy to follow and apply to your own build. Where technical terms are necessary they are explained well in layman's terms without being dumbed-down. Even the Appendix is well thought out, with a list of great websites, a pre-build checklist of things you want to have before you start, and definitions for a lot of common terms.The first section takes you through selecting all your components. They explain things like the tools you'll need, chipset features and how to pick a motherboard that will be the basis of the type of system you are going to build and what kind of upgrades you will be able to do in the future, how to pick the right case for you and your components, and power supplies.
