Real good book. It's really informative the only thing was instead of dollars sign it was euro sign but the price is the same i thought I was going have to conver but it was only off by a dollar or two. It's up to date on the technology super great book with tons of illustration
Very few PC building books these days are up to date. Most are so old they still talk about using 56K modems. Do they even still sell those? But this book is GREAT!! Its up to date. The version I have is 2015. Talks about all the NEW CPU's and GPU's even the Titan video card is in this book and even talking about the new Titan Z I believe it was called. This is a great book for ppl that have never built a PC before. And great to help get a idea on how much you might be spending to build your own custom rig. If you go by what it says in this book you will deff build a sweet gaming PC that will have you smiling ear to ear and have your bank account nice n full n happy
Forget YouTube, this book is awesome shows you step by step what you need what tools( recommended tools) you can make a great computer with this, if your into video editing, graphic design this book will be great too
After playing for years on the xbox gaming console, I decided I will try to give PC gaming a chance. Everything I read on the internet suggests that a PC build can be vastly superior to a gaming console for a few hundred dollars over the price of the console. This is mostly due to console hardware becoming obsolete relatively fast due to new technological improvements, especially for the GPU. And one can also invest a little more, ranging from a few hundreds to thousands, to build a truly powerful gaming machine that can last for years.This book does a good job of putting a lot of information (which I found scattered thru the internet) together. It explains various computer components such as CPU, memory, power supply unit (PSU), graphics card (GPU), PC case, etc. It has an example guide on how to assemble a PC from scratch. There is also quite a bit of information on overclocking memory, CPU, and GPU and explanation on how certain benchmarking software products work.There was some information I think didn't contribute much, regarding operating systems and browsers. Since we are talking about a gaming machine, I'm fairly certain that Windows is the best (and mostly only) choice. If you need an explanation about browsers, you are probably such a newbie to computers and technology, you better off not building your own PC as of yet.At the time of this writing, I haven't yet built a gaming PC, so I can't comment on how useful the information in the book is.
Simply stated a good book. I did overkill to build my first personal computer, a gaming monster. I dont use it for gaming but for video editing. the book was very helpful, but I also found many youtube videos that helped too.
This is an excellent book. I've learned a lot so far on gaming computers. I'm not used to this, so I bought this book. I love it. I recommend it.
The one down side to this book is that it was printed in the UK and the pricing is not converted for US.
Goes over everything you need to know! Glad I bought this book.
