Keyboard and Mouse

You probably have an older computer from which you can scavenge a quality keyboard and mouse. Otherwise, you can find cheaper ones free after mail-in rebates. However, most experienced PC users suggest purchasing high-quality keyboards and mice, because a quality keyboard and mouse make using your PC much more enjoyable. I like Microsoft keyboards and mice.

Figure 24 shows the complete system with a monitor, keyboard, and mouse.

Includes the system case plus a keyboard, mouse, and monitor.

 


By building your own PC, you’ll also learn how to upgrade your PC. You’ll have the skills and confidence to install a larger hard drive, add more RAM, or install a DVD drive.
