A64 complete system build (56k NO!) This is not a look what ive got thread, think of it more of a guide of what’s inside that box under your desk. And it also might sell more things for OCUK from people looking at this and thinking, I will have a go at that DIY computer building. But don’t rush out and build one right off the bat. It tuck me over 2 weeks to make sure that I was not going to be putting money into something that one will not work, something that will be well out of date in 6 months time and most importantly something that I can Overclock to well over the cost price and not fry something on the first day. I also needed something that will play all my games with little or no problems. And run and save all my files and do all the other general things you do on a PC. This is not a top of the range computer. Most of the Components were chosen because for the money there is not much that will out do this set-up without spending a lot more money. Note: 1 Basic Handling Procedure: Handle your components gently, especially the motherboards. Only pick components up by the edges. To prevent Electro-Static Discharge (ESD) damage to the components do not remove them from static-shielded bags until you are ready to install them. Only handle them after touching an unpainted metallic surface, like the frame of your case. If you have one, wear an anti-static wrist strap. Never remove a power connector with the power supply switched on. Note:2 Some people like to test the set-up (Motherboard with one stick of ram with the CPU and GFX card in) out the case just to make shore. You can do this but it is up to you. I as you can see don’t as I am quite sure it will start up and work first time. So to the components.
