To Build Or Not To Build

            Deciding to build a personal computer is a big step to take and should not be ventured into lightly. A great deal of patience is involved in performing this task because everything doesn't always flow as smoothly as one would like it to flow. Therefore, an individual with very little patience should seriously consider buying a complete system that is already together. So, if you choose to build one and you think you have the patience to do it, there are a few things you must consider.

             When discussing a computer's inner workings, the best place to start is the motherboard. Every board or device is either directly or indirectly connected to the motherboard (MB) through slots or sockets. The first consideration when choosing a motherboard is the physical size of the board or the form factor. (This decision will also help decide which case to choose.) Currently there are two types of form factors available to everyone. They are the Baby AT and the ATX. The Baby AT was first introduced by IBM as a full AT that was rather large in size. Over the years, as chip sets and parts have reduced in physical size, companies have shortened the board to reduce the costs. The other form factor is the ATX and was introduced to reduce cable clutter, improve airflow across the CPU and make room for full length expansion slots.
