Build the Perfect PC! Step by step guide

Filed under: General — Tags: , , , , , , , — Khaled A. @ 7:29 pm

I enjoy building my own PCs, it’s the only way to go in my opinion. Never buy a Dell/HP desktop when you can build one yourself. There is a joy in DIY (do it yourself). Hopefully this post will be helpful to you!

Maximum PC posted a feature on how to build the “Perfect PC”. I will link to the individual sections:

Next is the best part, actually building the computer. The steps are fairly basic and you mainly need a Philips screwdriver. Just follow these easy steps.

Then if you really, really, really want to, you can overclock your machine to increase the performance. Here’s what you need to know about overclocking. And for each CPU: Core 2 overclocking, Core i7 overclocking and AMD overclocking.

How to buy the hardware? Most of it can be (hopefully) found in the local computer stores. In Riyadh you can find them at the “Computer Haraj” in Olaya. Softland carries most of these hardware since they import them directly to Saudi Arabia. But they are not cheap. The other solution is ordering it online and ship it using Aramex (Crapamex) or myus.

Asus splits into 3 companies

Filed under: News — Tags: , , — Khaled A. @ 9:17 am

To concentrate on different markets, Asus divided into 3 companies (via Engadget):

  • The original Asus which will sell Asus branded computers
  • Pegatron for OEM, motherboards and component manufacturing
  • Unihan for casing, modules and other non-PC manufacturing

No information on how it will effect current Asus distributors in Saudi Arabia though.
