Thanks and it’s honestly a lot easier than people think and there’s plenty of guides on YouTube. The hardest part is probably just getting all the front panel connections right (power button, reset button).

I used to swap small things out like fans or GPU to learn than watched a few videos and gave it a try.

I have swapped out most parts like RAM/ graphics cards, hard drives and such...but never built one from scratch...my next machine is beggin for it though...

Oh if you’ve done all that then you should find it easy, it’s only of those things that seems harder than it is. You get a real sense of accomplishment building your own PC, not to mention it’s a hobby itself.

Guides from YouTube channels like Paul’s Hardware, Jayz Two Cents and Linus Tech tips make it super easy to learn too.

It isn’t any more complicated than what you have already done then Travis. It’s all basically plug and play. The main part is making sure that all the components are compatible and optimal for each other. Once you have the parts though it’s an easy process.

that compatibility thing is what I am most concerned about...I need to educate myself on the process.

Just use this website.

It helps you plan your build and let’s you know about compatibility so you can’t get it wrong.

I wish I had that a few years ago!

I built a computer from scratch, picked out each and every piece so that I could have exactly what I wanted. The build went great until I loaded the operating program that's when I found out that there was a major conflict between the mother board and the video card.

After a couple weeks of trying unsuccessfully to solve it myself, I reached out to the manufacturer of the mother board and they replied that the problem was a conflict between the two and the only way to solve it was to change the BIOS drastically and that I had to make the changes exactly as stated if not I would have an expensive boat anchor.

It wasn't worth it, I went and found a different video card that worked but didn't have all the abilities I wanted and used it. That computer is so obsolete now that I no longer use it.

I think I'm gonna build another one just to use for nothing but photography.

That sounds pretty crazy as I rarely hear about compatibility issues between GPU’s and MOBO’s!

When I first started building my PC’s it was for photography only but over the years it has been more about gaming and photography so the cost has gone up too.

If you do build again ask on here and I’m sure plenty of us will be happy to help :)

Excellent, I appreciate that.
I've been getting the bug quite a bit lately to build another and I'll definitely ask for help this time.

Happy to help and I am always craving an upgrade so I know the feeling :p

Cheers for the link Daniel, I’ve not seen that site before. I’m still conflicted between buying the new iMac or building a PC for my photo and video editing. When I spec up the PC I end up at a similar cost and I really like the Mac environment (currently edit on a MacBook Pro). But I like the upgradability of PCs

It’s quite popular and they should have local site for you too. I find not all my local stores are on there so I use it more for compatibility than exact pricing.
Does that PC have higher specs than the Mac for the same pricing? I personally always go for Windows as I love building, I play games which Mac’s aren’t good for and I love Windows OS.

I’m going to go through the process again and check the pricing but I was doing like for like. The 2019 iMac has a really fast intel chip (not base model)

I had a look at the specs of them and I feel for the price, I could build a much better machine. For me it's the same as prebuilt Windows machines, I like to get quality parts so it can workout more sometimes but those parts will last a lot longer.

For example getting a tier 1 or tier 2 PSU with good capacitors will help your other components last longer but many prebuilt machines use below average PSU, Mobo and RAM to keep the price down.

I also like to watercool my CPU so adds a bit of extra cost to the build.
