The All-in-One PDF Manual for First-Time Builders

Recommended For: Beginner / Intermediate

Why it Can Fast-Tack Your Understanding of PCs:

The Gaming Build Blueprint is the all-in-one manual for hardware beginners building their first PC, which teaches you every step of building, maintaining, performance-optimizing and upgrading a custom high-performance PC.

Over 100 pages of invaluable DIY tips will take you from complete noob to intermediate enthusiast in no time. Includes introductory modules on overclocking, PC maintenance, benchmarking games using MSI Afterburner, and other exclusive content not found on the site.

Also, sales of the eBook are re-invested back into improving the site as well as into my upcoming indie VR game, and so is the most direct way you can show support for me and the site if you have gained a lot from all of the free and continually updated guides and tutorials on the site and feel inclined to "buy me a coffee or two". Thanks guys and enjoy the book - if you like reading the site, I'm sure you'll love it (or get your money back; I offer a 30 day money back guarantee).

That simply means if you purchase product/s within a certain period of time after clicking the store links above (or any product links on this site), if that store offers an affiliate program I receive a small commission of the total sale amount (at no extra cost to you - it comes out on the retailer's end). This is how I'm able to earn an income writing and updating these articles for you guys. Also note this is unrelated to manufacturers: I don't accept monetary incentives to recommend a certain product over another.

Trusted VPN

Cybersecurity is becoming an increasingly important issue in the digital age, and installing a VPN is one easy way to improve the security and privacy of your PC. VPNs can also help for gaming. NordVPN is the one I use and can recommend. For more on VPNs see my gaming PC software guide.
