Want to learn how to build your own gaming/homework PC but worried about the support, the cost, or even the need to satisfy immediate use while learning? To the right are our recommended pre-built PCs and optional upgrades that require you to tear the pc apart and put it back together....fun!!  Oh and Yes, we also coach how and why to install the upgrades as well as building a PC from scratch - so you can perform more "future proofing" on your own and save money down the road.  Thanks for your support and we respectfully request using our links to purchase these items so we can continue to provide outstanding service to our community - Earth!!! 

Keep "Building.ON.Today...Bettering.Our.Tomorrow"  

(This info is based on our personal and our gamers/engineers/designers(ages 8-18)  experience and opinions after using our PCs in our LAN center. There is definitely a slightly less expensive route, but there is also definitely a much more expensive route..This similar setup worked well for us for over a year now.! Although this will build you a similar PC to ours, we are not sure how it will fair against our LAN Center experience on site! ;) )

Description

Building a computer is fun, affordable, and empowering. It's fun being able to choose all of the parts that will go into your machine, it's cheaper than buying a PC from a manufacturer like Dell or HP, and it's just so darn cool to DIY!

This course is for anyone that has ever wanted to build their own computer.

For this course, I purchased all the parts I needed for a new computer. I will explain each part, including function and features I thought were important, describe other features you may want to look for, demonstrate how to build the entire computer, and then install the necessary operating system and software.

You will go from having no idea what's inside a computer to having a full working computer after this course.

Goals:

Figure out your computer's main purpose
Determine which parts you need to buy
Compare features and benefits of different makes and models of parts
Buy your computer parts from the most reliable sources
Put together all of the parts that make up your PC
Install a Windows operating system
Install anti-virus software
Test your built computer is running at optimal temperatures
Troubleshoot your build in case something didn't go right on the first try

FAQ:

What operating system do you demonstrate how to install?
Windows 10

How much do the parts cost?

It depends on what you want to do with your new PC. You can spend anywhere from $300 to $3000 on your build(additional cost). The first thing to do is to identify the purpose of your computer. Are you going to use it for gaming or photo and video editing, or just basic web browsing and media playback like Youtube or twitch? The more performance you want from your machine, the more it will cost. 

Who this course is for:

Anyone who wants to develop a new skill of building a computer, upgrading a computer, swapping out computer parts and downloading Operating Systems.

No previous experience, knowledge, or training needed
