There in lies the mystery, I've never built a PC, just added drives, usb cards, basic stuff.
I say "Go for it!!!"
Building/Assembling a PC is no longer rocket science and provided you don't rush and follow the printed instructions (which are most often illustrated) which come with the individual components, you can't go wrong.
Considering the upgrades you've previously performed, I reckon you're already half way there.
And the best thing about completing this project, the pride you'll display in being able to say that you built your own computer and, compared to your rich mates who bought theirs off-the-shelf, for a fraction of the co$t
Promise to come back and tell us how it all goes.
