Over the years I’ve been the “tech guy” for my friends when they have tech questions and tech support issues. I just recently helped a friend build a new PC, which really isn’t that difficult. It wasn’t all roses and we ran into a few troubles along the way. By the end he was kind of comfortable putting a lot of it together himself, because of all of the troubleshooting we had to do.
Going through that process made me think of that old proverb about handing people fish vs. teaching them to be a fisherman. Hopefully this series of articles will help you help yourselves, and you will see that building your own PC really isn’t that hard.
