It's something my son and I are going to go together. i guess my biggest concern is I couldn't even tell you what parts I need. I'm guessing the videos will cover that.

Parts change all the time with new releases on gpus, deals on motherboards, cpus ect... I highly suggest posting your budget here and what you are looking to do with your PC. (Gaming only, video editing, game production ect...) That's what I did and the people who know their s*** here gave me a list of parts that pretty much crushes any game that I throw at it a year and a half later.

Not as easy as most PC gamers would have you believe.

You should be fine, just make sure to do plenty of research beforehand.

Pretty easy. The hardest part is just affording the parts you want/need to make a decent gaming PC.

It is not really hard. Just get familiar with the components the PC consists of, and look up some of those newegg TV PC build videos on youtube.

I am not saying that if you know nothing it would be intuitive, but that with some basic knowledge and going over the information about PC building you can find online, you should be able to do it.

As mentioned earlier, the hard part, in the sense that it takes most knowledge, is buying the right parts (not just which are compatible, but also which offer a good bang for buck etc.). But you can get plenty of help with that on this , and many other gaming/hardware forums.

The hardest part is finding the right parts. Assembling it is just following instructions.
Russian is my first language, so yes there may be a spelling error or two.

I just build a comp for my bro on X-mas day in about 30 minutes, although I admit I've been doing builds for quite some time.

It's not as hard as some make it out to be, the first time should take you like 2 hours max so long as you watch a few youtube videos before hand.

The trickiest part is easily the CPU. I was pretty nervous my first time messing with it and doing the thermal paste.

easier that getting laid
