As others are saying self build is not hard although a few tidbits most new to this overlook. Handling the components, before you do ensure you ground yourself and the component before taking out of its packaging. Touching a case with PSU installed and plugged into the wall socket (earth grounded) will ensure you are at the same potential difference and therefore can not have an ESD discharge. When taking the components out of their packaging do not place them ontop of the antistatic packaging/bags - they are designed to protect the contents by dissipating any charges around the outside. It is also preferable to only handle holding the edges (not touching any contacts) If going Intel (would have thought unlikely) be cautious when installing the cpu - the motherboard pins that touch the cpu are very sensitive to any misuse/misplacement and the most common home user fault. AMD have the pins on the CPU itself that the socket clamps and whilst can still be bent albeit is a less common fault than Intels solution..
Yes, agreed. The chap just wanted a PC for his son for Fortnight, so 16gb is perfect for gaming and more than enough for most common tasks.
As long as you avoid the Verge pc build video... You know the one I'm talking about
