Episode 25 – The Build It Yourself Episode

We accidentally had themed recommendations this week! Welcome to DIY with Mel and Kelly! Mel builds a computer while Kelly finds a site to build EVERYTHING!

Mel’s Recommendation:

newegg

Website: Newegg.com

  • A Tech Superstore that will help you find all of your pc building needs.
  • Many products have unboxing videos that give you a full tour of the product so you can get a close up view before you buy.
  • They also are very well known for great customer service.
  • A lot of the customer reviews are left by very tech savvy folks who describe any problems they had with the install.

Website: TomsHardware.com

  • Don’t know which video card to buy, or which processor is the best bang for your buck? Start here.
  • If your really stumped take a look at the forums where a lot of very knowledgeable people tend to hang out.

 

Kelly’s Recommendation:

instructables

Website: Instructables.com

  • Full of tons of cool instructions or “ibles” that help you make pretty much anything you can think of.
  • Awesome topics include Cosplay, Steampunk, Halloween DecorationsCooking, and 3D Printing.
  • They also have tons of contests for the best instructable in a given category.
  • Go check it out and try your hand at “building” something cool!
  • Also if any one wants to make this Dragon Cake and send it to Mel…..

Social Media Recommendations:

Mel: NeweggTv on YouTube: lots of videos about products plus more current event geek type news.

Kelly:  5Facts We Learned from the Internet is a fun YouTube show by Annie Colbert and Matt Silverman. It has frequent visits by some awesome guests like Wil Wheaton and Grover!
