I have upgraded like every component in computers before, but this is my first official build from COMPLETE scrap.($$$)
It has taken 2+ months to get the parts and build this and I'm still not done! But it is still awesome. It is about 4x better than any computer my family has had ever. They love me for it.
I hope you comment your questions/concerns/tips/tricks/ideas.
