Pretty common skill but remains the only thing I ever streamed & confident assisting strangers with.

Will sort a vid out that doesn't get copyright struck. Meantime, if you want a hand; assembling a new machine, upgrading or troubleshooting, happy to.

Thats awesome mate! I think it is a far less common skill than you realise. Even people who are competent when it comes to computers are a little unsure what componants are best. Utilise it as much as you can :D

This would have been useful for me, as my laptop is ready for a funeral. It's time we all invested in the basics of all skills, as much as possible.

Use this site to get an idea of the core components of a desktop and possible costs

If you dont know anything about a pc, id recommend that you just play around with it for a while and make "mock" builds.

I normally recommend starting with their desired appearance (the outer case) and budget, and then work from there, as it narrows down the hardware choices far more efficiently than asking someone what they intend to use a computer for, only to be met with a boilerplate response of "email and youtube". It sounds counterintuitve, but I find that people are more engaged with building a pc when they have a clear vision of the pc itself i.e. aesthetics and follow through rather than getting stuck on chipset form factors.
