    May I just ask, how hard is:
    1. Screwing in motherboard to the Chasis.
    2. Placing hard drive(s) in the hard drive(s) bay(s)
    3. Placing the CD-DVD Drive in the DVD-Drive bay
    4. Connecting the LED light to the motherboard (following the instuction manual for that)
    5. Connect the DVD-Drive and Hard Drive(s) to the motherboard via ATA or SATA
    6. Placing graphics card in the AGP/PCI-E slot.
    7. Connecting 4 pin Females into 4 pin Males (on the drives) in an array which is valid so all parts get power
    8. Plug in Monitor
    9. Plug in mouse/keyboard
    10. Plug in anything else into the back
    11. Turn on computer and follow Darkstars= 'Reformatting Tutorial'.
    12. Installing all other programs you want on.

    Done? If you cant do that.... then wow.

    You still have to mess with the bios and stuff when installing everything which may confuse him, i know there are instructions to follow in there but still he may be put off from touching it.

    Also like connecting the wires to start, reset etc, you have to read lotsa manuals, but dont worry they explain it clearly.
    I'm already now building my own... ;)

    Correct me, yes it is one manual for the motherboard but with all the other computer parts, you have lotsa together. Its just time consuming, and when something doesnt work/fit you get frustrated and if you connect something wrong you can F it all up.

    ''Oh, where is this red button at the back of PSU for? Hmm lets try...''

    j/k, happend to my friend once...

    Building a comp isn't really easy...
    Say if you got the wrong Case for your mobo or you dont know how to or where to connect the power and led connecters or if you dont know the first thing to do for the mobo config.

    most people suggested Ibuypower to him.

    and then he asked if anyone bought from ibuypower..

    thats about it...

    Plus the fight of 'Alienware is overpriced', stuff like that..

    As long as you get an ATX case, you shouldnt have any issues with the case (unless you get a Baby ATX mobo, i dont know if that fits standard ATX form factored cases.) But sticking with an ATX case and an ATX or Micro-ATX mobo.... its not that hard.

    Merged Post:


    btw, there arent many (if any) Micro-ATX cases, usually they are made ATX. But just check to be sure.

    Shuttles are the only Micro ATX cases I can think of.
