Book Description

BUILD IT. FIX it. OWN IT. A Beginner's Guide to Building and Upgrading a PC Build It. Fix It. Own It. is the ultimate beginner's guide to building and fixing your own PC. With a friendly, knowledgeable tone, this book shows the beginning PC builder everything he or she needs to know to build a computer or upgrade an existing one. We step you through the parts that lurk inside a PC, from the motherboard and power supply to the CPU, memory, hard drive, video card, sound card, and networking hardware. In each case, you will learn how the hardware works, what it does, what types of hardware are available, and what to look for when buying the hardware. Then we walk you step-by-step though a series of PC building projects. We show you how to build five different types of PC: a basic business PC, a home theater PC, a high-performance PC, a killer gaming PC, and a budget PC. And if building a new PC from scratch isn't in your budget, we show you how to resurrect an old PC by swapping out a few key components. When you have your PC built and running, we show you how to set up a wireless network and the BIOS and maintain your new rig. Build It. Fix It. Own It. is the ultimate PC builder's guide, even if you've never ventured inside a PC case before!
