Anyone who has built a gaming computer can attest to how stressful and tedious the process can be, especially when something goes wrong and you have to spend anywhere from a few minutes to several hours trying to figure it out. However, those same people will tell you about how rewarding of an experience it is and how its more than worth the effort. Kotaku describes it in much more detail in one of its articles.
Building a gaming PC can be time-consuming and stressful. There are a thousand things that could go wrong, and any one of them could wind up costing hundreds of dollars. And yet we do it anyway. Why? Because building PCs is totally awesome. Last summer, I finished building and fine-tuning a new gaming PC. It was a rewarding, maddening, exciting, terrifying, and ultimately enjoyable experience. Shortly after finishing, I made a list of the ten best things about building a new PC. It’s fun to tell people you’re building a new PC. “I’m building a new PC,” you say. “Oh, cool!” They reply. You get to sound like you’re some hot-rodding, customizing know-it-all who builds his own things all the time. Yeah, I build my own PCs. I also grind my own coffee beans, and when the downstairs bathroom doorknob falls off, I fix it myself. You’re about to create something. You’re building something. You rule.
