Twelve years ago, I was referred to PC Mech by a friend who suggested I could build my own computer instead of buying one. The info I found was so helpful, I decided to become a member of the forums so I could seek some personalized advice. Everyone was kind with their responses to my rookie queeries and tolerated my ignorance without judgement or flaming (like so many other pc forums!). I've stuck with PC Mech all these years because of the honest, polite and informed opinions of the staff and senior members. Those who come seeking a blessing of the parts they've already purchased may feel rebuffed when better components are suggested but that's just human nature. Trust me, these guys (and gals!) know there stuff. From parts suggestions to virus removal, these folks are some of the most helpful on the internet - and they continue to do it for free!
