When you buy a computer, you aren't just paying for the machine's constituent parts but the cost of putting all of those parts together. Building your own computer, then, can be a great way to save a little money for the technically savvy. And if you're not savvy, get savvy with this clip.
In this multi-part series (bearing more than just a passing resemblance to a segment from a cooking show), Carey Holzman takes you step-by-step through building your own computer. With a list of the parts he used, you too can build a 3Ghz Core 2 Duo with 4GB of RAM and a 250 GB hard drive that will easily run Winows XP, Windows Vista or even Windows 7 for under $450!
