Building Your own PC

This is a link to my Manual on how to build your own PC.

BUILDING YOU OWN PC

Guide To Building your PC

The project that i will be doing is to construct a manual that explains how to build your own PC other than just buying one from a major company or store. A lot of store computers are build for the general public and may include additional hardware and software that u would not normally use or want on your PC. Building your own PC means build and put exactly what u want and need.

There are a lot of manuals in the form of videos, blogs, and even books that covers this topic. Each one of these are missing one thing or another that a novice would not know or understand. The writers write their manuals as if u already have an understanding of what to do and not to do when u are building a PC. Building your own PC with Hardware that u only want may even save u more money. In general there is not a lot of manuals out there for building your own PC that’s in the form of a actual book or manual. They are mostly in the form of blog post or posted on websites . Most of these manuals also are not appealing to the readers, they offer little or no pictures of any kind that can make it easy for us to understand what we are suppose to do or where should we placed a particular part.

Some of these manuals include:

In this article The writer start off by telling it’s reader that PC building can be a daunting task and what it takes to build a PC which is patients. The writer here prepared the reader of what’s ahead. This is a good thing but the writer did not explain more in terms of what the reader should expect or make the reader feel confident in building their own PC. The outline of the article is fairly good. The article is consisted of mostly text and little pictures of some of the hardware. The writer separates each important part of the PC building process into different sections. For example one section explaining the basic of the hardware of a PC. At the end of each section he listed links to guides in choosing the best hardware which is a good but most of the hardware listed are outdated or old, there are newer hardware available. The problem with this article is that it outlines what is needed and where to find the best parts for the best price but it did not explain how to actually build the PC once the reader has obtained all the required parts.

Technology knowledge A guide to Building your own PC

The outline of this article is very good. The writer didn’t give an excellent introduction on why is it better to build a PC rather than buying one and also what to expect throughout the building process. The writer here again categorized the different sections of the PC building process which is always a good way of showing what needs to be done. The writer used detailed pictures that shows some of the hardware part required but nor all. Since our readers may be new to this is it recommended to show detailed pictures of each part. Unlike the previous article the writer here uses new hardware instead of old ones. The problem with this article is that the writer did not introduce the readers to the hardware in details which would help the reader in choosing their hardware parts a little easier. Overall the article was fairly good but finishing some important parts.

Tom’s hardware Building your own PC

Tom’s hardware always have excellent articles with easy to navigate quick links at the bottom of each page. They usually have detailed instructions and pictures. The article they did on how to build a PC was only based on the hardware that they decided to use in writing the article. They did not have give the reader any choice of what they wanted to build.

My goal is to write a manual that would be friendly to the novice builders. it would include detailed instructions, a background of building computers, etc. It would also include pictures screenshots of websites if any, and maybe videos that will help the reader to follow along effectively and quickly.
