If you have already built a pc,you should know how to do it by now,or do you wont the latest hardware?.

well the first time i my cousin mainly built it and i watched and kinda learnt that way. THis time its all by myself, the two links i gave were really helpful and i feel i know quite a bit now but just wanted a recent one thats all.

Ok, well dont be put off it really is not as hard as it seems if fact when you start you almost know what goes where as if you have done it a hundred times already,just dont rush take your time and check what you have done,read the manuals you get with the various parts these help a lot on how to set up and install.The link you have already been to click here is a good one start at the first page and work through print them off
it helps.Building a pc doesnt change that much so it doesnt really matter how old the page is its all about how confident you feel doing the job.

Good Luck.
