Abstract:

Pre-built systems are often a compromise between what the manufacturers want to sell you and what you want to buy. One solution is to build it yourself. Acquiring a copy of 'Building a PC in Easy Steps' is the first step in the right direction. Written in a concise and easy-to-understand style, this book walks readers through all the stages of building and setting up a computer: buying the parts and avoiding sales scams; mastering and installing each component (CPU, memory, video, etc); altering default settings in the BIOS for optimum performance; and installing and configuring device drivers. The troubleshooting chapter is invaluable in the event of problems. By the time they have finished, readers have a computer that's tailored to their exact requirements with no superfluous features or functions.
