    Hi All

    I am working away steadily on my A+ and enjoying it. I have decided to get practical as well and build my own machine. Are there any tips on the preparation before I start buying parts? I am not too worried about cost within reason.

    Thanks for your help.

    I would recommend eBuyer. It might also be worth while posting the list of parts on here before you buy them, so you can get some feedback before parting with your cash!

    The main thing is making sure the parts work together, and you supply enough power. I agree that u should post your build before you buy it to make sure everything right.

    Thanks. I will do some research and list what I want to do. I'll post it and see what people think before I start buying.
