I've never built a PC before but this one looks affordable and in my price range. Even if i weren't to get this build, how would i build a PC? Do I do it myself or get professionals or a friend to?

I know it's been about a month since you posted the question, but building a computer is really easy, and there are plenty of helpful step-by-step how to videos out there. Although this build does look really cool, you can either save some money and use different parts, or put the money into either upgrading the gpu or cpu. Such as building without the $100 case, or $100 cooler as the stock cooler will keep your cpu temps down, as long as you dont overclock, or play extremely cpu intensive games, most games focus on the gpu. Another way to keep costs down, you could go without the ssd, although your games/os/ everything will load faster, windows 10 with intel smart start boots in about 20ish seconds for me. If you still need any help, feel free to ask. I would be willing to come up with a part list for you, if you are looking for some ideas. If you do want to, you can build a cool looking computer for a pretty cheap price, its just alot of times you lose out on better usability features, whereas TechGeek01's build used higher end parts, that both look great, and function great. Lastly, the most important thing to do when building a computer, is to build what you want. Now this doesnt mean you need to pick up the highest end i7, but get something that you think fits your budget, and gets you the performance you want. the r7 250 is a great card, maybe not the highest end gpu on the market, but maybe thats all you need. Maybe you want 12k gaming to be a thing, then get 4 titan x's for all we care, just get something that you wont regret tomorrow.

Sorry for the late reply. I haven't been here in a while. Anyway, it's pretty easy building yourself. If you don't want to screw it up, and are afraid of doing it, you can go with the professional approach. However, building a PC is almost like working with Legos. If you get stuck, just look on the internet for help. Also, may I suggest Reddit's /r/buildapc? If you're a first timer, reading the installation parts of the manuals that come with your products will be a big help, but overall, you'll have a lot more fun, and gain a lot more knowledge and experience if you build yourself.

Anyway, good luck!

You can get someone else to do it for you, but half the fun is in building yourself! There are YouTube tutorials out there that are pretty easy to follow. The terminology and some of the different looking connections may scare some people off, but it's just like a puzzle.

If you're confident and know what you're doing, you can pretty much connect the parts that fit together. If you're new, you still can, but it will help big time to check out some videos. It's fairly easy to get the hang of, but a video explanation won't hurt.

Good luck!
