After my old 5 year old Dell desktop pooped out on me, I thought it’d be fun to build my own computer. Fortunately, pcpartpicker.com makes this very easy.
I’m not really into gaming, so it was easy to build a nice linux system with plenty of horsepower for general Internet use and software development tasks. Once the parts arived, the system basically built itself and it’s worked great ever since!
