I don't even need this PC, but I built it because I just got passed up AGAIN for a PC tech position at a local prestigious medical organization.
I bought all these individual components online and put them all together in JUST OVER FOUR HOURS, which is NOT BAD for a dishwasher if you ask me!
I had to buy the power supply:
then the motherboard:
then the CPU:
I also bought an extra cooling fan cuz I knew that my system would be SMOKIN:
And of course I needed a CPU fan:
And I needed a video card for all the latest and greatest games:
And a DVD drive, (not a burner cuz I don't burn DVD's)
And some nice fast 400Mhz RAM:
I put in this hard drive that I already had:
Then I install all this in this ATX Mid-Tower case. Note the built in handle, which is very convenient for people like me that like to link up with other people's LANs for gaming. I had only ONE issue when I first turned it on, the video card wasn't seated properly so I got system board beep errors. All I did was re-seat every thing and I noticed what the problem was right away.
I put all this together in JUST OVER 4 hours. NOT BAD if you ask me. But of course, I'm still not "qualified" to work for MMPC or Troy Schools or wherever else might offer me a decent standard of living cuz I don't have *Experience*.
Well FUCK THEM, they can hire all the "normal" people they want and I'll just keep washing dishes and short-order cooking cuz apparently that's all I'm good for.
