I Built a Computer!

A couple weeks ago my dad offered me a challenge (and full reimbursement). He needed a family computer that would be used to store family pictures, videos, and the like, as well as be a stable work environment for him that would last longer than his throwaway Dell laptop stack. This is the first time I made a computer so things were interesting and new to say the least.

This post is going to share what I built, how it went, and what I learned.
