dc.description.abstractIn June of 1999 my brother, Adam, graduated from high school and decided to attend Kalamazoo College. My whole family decided that we would need another computer, because one computer between the two of us would not be practical. So the need for another computer was established. Building a computer for my Senior Individualized Project (SIP) became a learning experience for me, but at the same time it was practical for three reasons: my family needed another one, the Pentium 133 was too slow and I had been having problems with it. I decided to go to the local bookstore to see if they had any computer assembly books, to make sure I was not getting in over my head on this project. I found a book called Building Your Own PC: Buying and Assembling with Confidence (Lee, 1998) that told me everything that I had hoped to learn about my upcoming challenge. After reading the book I felt very confident that I could do this project and not have too many problems or disasters occur during the process.en_US
