On Tuesday we discovered how easy it was to insert and install the ASUS P8Z77-V Deluxe motherboard into a chassis while building a custom PC from scratch. I am still getting a dreamy expression thanks to the plastic whotzit that helps with the wiring. Seriously, you have no idea how much I dislike that part usually!

Anyway, in this, our third episode, we find out about installing drives and graphics cards. Here you’ll see how to insert your graphics card, if you decide to go down the dedicated card route (which I highly recommend if you are planning on playing the latest high-end games) and how to insert drives, such as Blu-ray, for full multimedia functionality, and your hard drive.

I am finding this really well done. It even covers whether or not you should go with SSD, how to attach your choice of hard drive to power and the motherboard, and how to tidy away your wires. Good luck and feel free to shout if you have any questions.
