Components for Building Computers From Scratch/Expert Profile

returns 12/31/2017

I used to build computers but no longer do. I can give you advise or point you in the right path, but I am not up to date on current tech. If you have a older computer, that's where I can help you the best. But I can help you with new computers as well. I offer no help on MAC.

Experience in the area

Hands on and self taught. Learned from others.


High School. Self taught.
