If you enjoy technology and want to learn about modern, powerful computers, and, perhaps, build one of your own, this book is for you.This book comes with its own website: http://www.thepcbook.com. That was created by the author. Here you will find illustrations, photographs, the “geek test,” links to selected components, and much more. The website allows readers to add to the book. This is a collaborative project.The book covers recent Intel CPUs (central processing units), such as, Haswell, Haswell-E, Broadwell, and Skylake S. It covers, computer chipsets or the PCH input/output hub of the motherboard. You will learn to select RAM memory modules, motherboards, computer cases, power supplies, CPU coolers, video cards, sound cards, monitors, hard disks, solid state drives, and keyboard & mouse. Also covered is: installing the Windows operating system, troubleshooting various issues, UEFI BIOS updates and security and, the proper assembly of the whole lot into a well-orchestrated system. No other book or resource attempts to do so much for such a modest price. I assure you the desktop PC is making a resurgence. Why? Because no power user can obtain the breadth of functionality from a tablet that a modern PC offers. Welcome back! The PC is more ready than ever to be the versatile, powerful companion to creative minds. You will enjoy the machine that can be built using this book. You will budget it, you will select its components and you will put it all together. You will be proud to own it. You will be deservedly proud of yourself. Thank you for considering my book! It is available here on Amazon.
