Summary
"While many think that the world of PCs is an off-the-rack business, virtually nothing could be further from the truth. There are millions of people out there who still prefer to "roll their own" when it comes to their PCs. Buying off the rack is easy, to be sure, but if you want a system tailored to your specifications, then you're pretty much relegated to purchasing it piecemeal, then grabbing a screwdriver and rolling up your shirtsleeves. PC gamers, graphics professionals, power user and all around geeks still prefer the "from scratch" approach. Problem is, there are a dizzying number of new technologies introduced each year - and not all of them play nice with each other. Even a bona fide, pocket protector wearing geek can have trouble sorting through the maze of hardware available. Just some of what you will learn here includes: Choosing the right parts Building the system from the ground up Installing Windows Connecting to a network Tweaking your BIOS Overclocking your PC for raging performance Installing some of the newest PC components, including solid-state hard drives Configuring your PC for game peformance, including setting up SLI and CrossFire dual-card rigs Upgrading your laptop hard disk Upgrading your existing PC This three-hour, downloadable video is a groundbreaking compilation of four teaching formats: Pure video: Shot in a professional studio using an HD camera Camtasia: Video capture of Windows desktop and programs with voiceover PowerPoint: Slides with optional photos Photomovie: Photos converted into a movie with voiceover and transition This video is primarily a hands-on tutorial dedicated to building and repairing desktop and laptop PCs. Viewers will be walked through each step - starting with choosing the right parts, then assembling each part, tweaking the BIOS, loading Windows, overclocking and beefing up your computer for today's demanding games and power-hungry application. While learning all of this in three hours might sound daunting, fortunately, PC hardware enthusiast and expert, Mark Soper, is at the ready. Mark has been training people how to use computers - including how to build and repair them - for more than 25 years, and he will guide you, step-by-step."--Resource description page
