James Pyles writes "To quote from the book's preface: "Building PCs isn't just for techies any more. It used to be, certainly. Only gamers and other geeks
actually built their PCs from the ground up. Everyone else just called the Dell Dude and ordered a system. That started to change a few years
ago. The first sign was when general merchandisers like Best Buy started stocking upgrade components." Someone told me years ago that
building a PC was like building something with Legos. While I don't think it's a perfect analogy, it comes close. Building a PC or
small server is well within the grasp of anyone who can use a screwdriver and likes to tinker. Building the Perfect PC, 2nd Edition makes
it a snap."
