Great informative post !!
We keep trying to tell folks not to "rip themselves off" by purchasing off the shelf proprietary computers from vendors but I guess some just don't care or bother to listen. After reading the Asus Manual, it probably would take all of 30 minutes to build the machine with all parts at hand. My record is 10 minutes on the living room carpet (LOL).
Hmm, I guess building a PC is like playing with the erector kit in my days. You get a feel for nuts and bolts. And you have a better idea where to look when things go on the blink.
It's good to see what other folks are using in their builds, whether they are experts or not. It's especially good when they explain why they are getting the parts they chose. As well as The Geek's parts list on this site, here is another that is useful for comparison and understanding:
Of course, every individual gets to choose their own parts for their own reasons. Also, these lists tend to be obsoleted quickly as newer (usually better) hardware is coming out all the time.
