I decided that I wanted to build this PC after Christmas 2012. I wanted to upgrade from my ten year old hand me down PC that could barely run Minecraft on tiny render distance. I was introduced to the idea of building my own PC after my friend had done it during the summer prior. I had help with referencing what kind of parts I would need for what I was planning on doing, which is mostly gaming (like everybody else in the world now). I took what he told me, learned a lot more about computers and made my own decisions on parts as well as using some of the referenced parts. Without PC Part Picker, I probably wouldn't even have decided to build a PC because I needed a place to look for parts as well as save parts for later that has a nice UI.
