Welcome to the online version of
How to Build Your Own PC, adapted from the print book by Charlie Palmer.
My name is Charles and I am the publisher and webmaster of The PC Guide;
I hope you will find this material a useful addition to the site.
Here are some tips for understanding
how the material is organized and how best to navigate through it:
- Hierarchy Navigation: Near the top of
each page of the site you will see in a blue-outlined box a cascading
set of links that reflect your current position in the organizational
structure of this Guide. You can click any of these links to go up one
or more levels in the hierarchy.
- Accessing the Table Of Contents: To the
left of the hierarchy navigation box is the table of contents button.
Click it to bring up the full contents of.the Guide.
- Next/Previous Section/Topic Navigation:
At the top and bottom of each page is a solid blue box that contains
buttons and links for moving sequentially through the Guide. On the
far left and far right of this box are text links and large arrows that
take you directly to the start of the previous or next full topic or
section. These always take you to the first page of any topic that has
multiple pages, to allow you to skip all the pages of any topic you
dont want to read.
- Direct Page Navigation: In the middle
of the blue box you will see a navigation display for moving easily
through the pages of a topic. Each page number is listed, with the current
page shown in white text on a dark background, and the other pages hyperlinked
for easy direct access.
- Next/Previous Page Navigation: You will
also see in the blue box smaller arrows that take you to the previous
or next page of the Guide. The small left arrow goes to the previous
page of the current topic, or if you are on its first (or only) page,
the last page of the previous topic. The right arrow goes to the next
page of the current topic, or if you are on its last (or only) page,
takes you to the first page of the next topic. You can use these arrow
to move sequentially through the entire Guide.
- Text Links: At the bottom of each page
are a set of text links that take you to the top of this Guide or its
table of contents. There are also links to the PCGuide.com home page,
and the page where you can contact me with questions or feedback. I
welcome your feedback, comments and suggestions.

Last but definitely not least: this
site is provided as an online reference resource for casual use. Please
do not use software to try to mass-download the pages of this site.
The Guide contains hundreds of pages, and doing this severely degrades
server performance, making it difficult for others to use the site.
For this reason, you risk having your access to the site blocked by
an automatic script if you try to do this.
If you like this Guide, please consider
ordering the inexpensive print version
directly from the author. You will find the hard copy useful during
your PC build project.
Thanks again and enjoy the site!
