Default Beginner's Guide to Computer Assembly

Since the boom of the technology age, many people think that building a computer is extremely hard and an ability that only skilled people have. However, to the massive crowd out there that believes this, you’re wrong! Anyone can build a computer with the parts in hand, and common sense in mind. Building a computer is actually very simple and you can do it too! Let’s start with purchasing the parts you would need for your system. I would recommend Newegg as the best place to buy computer hardware. It usually has the cheapest parts, and has beyond amazing shipping quality.

First time I ever built a computer, it took me a good 45 minutes. Nowadays, it takes me 15 minutes.
It is still taking me more than 45 minutes after I built my first more than 15 years ago. Damn, I AM SLOW.

I don't know aboyt 15 minutes:

1) Open the shipping box of the case - unpack
2) Upack the CD Drives
3) Upack the Mobo - assuming mounting the same board used before.
4) Install Heatsink
5) Mount Mobo
6) Mount Vcard
7) Mount memory
8) Mount modem
9) Mount hard drive(s)
10) Mount CD drives
11) Mount flopy drive
12) connecting wirings
13) Route cables
14) mount case fans
15) scratching yourself

Not in correct orders; that's one minute per task.
