We wanted to share with you a YouTube video posted by Carey Holzman that shows, in great detail, how to a build a PC from scratch using parts from our "Get the Best Bang for the Buck" feature in the currently shipping December 2012 issue of Maximum PC. If Holzman's name sounds familiar, it's because he used to co-host the Computer America Show for about 6 years where Deputy Editor Gordon Mah Ung and Senior Editor Josh Norem, along with former editors Jon Phillips, Will Smith, and George Jones could frequently be heard.
Holzman is also the author of "The Healthy PC: Preventive Care and Home Remedies for Your Computer" available on Amazon, co-hosts a weekly podcast at Tech-Vets.com, and runs a computer repair center in Phoenix, Arizona. To say he's a busy man is an understatement.
Even with all that he has going on, Holzman found time to post a trio of wonderful 'how-to' videos on YouTube that walks viewers through the steps of assembling a PC using all the parts we recommended. We're always thrilled when readers of the magazine take our advice to heart, and we wanted to give you a heads up to what Holzman has done.
As it's currently formatted, it's a three-part series (first part talks about our article, and the latter two cover the parts and build process), all three of which we've embedded below. Be sure to bookmark this page, however, as we'll be updating this post as he adds more parts. At some point, Holzman tells us he hopes to combine all the parts into a single, massive video.
