It should be "I assemble computers.". Just like how "I assemble LEGO blocks."
Because saying you build computers implies that you have higher education.
The reality though is that people who ASSEMBLE computer components have no less brain than kids who assemble LEGO blocks.
Also LinusTechTips and such faggots are MARKETING GROUPS, not TECH groups.
As such, posting any YouTube faggot without a STEM degree or any technical higher education, constitutes a violation of rules.

>costing him a lot more
He got his last PC by paying $2500 to an 'expert'
I just went to the parts store and got a cheapass skylake board and an I3-6100.
>mfw he got swindled with an i7-920 and the SSD EVO meme without SATA-3 on the old ass mobo.
>mfw I got a new mobo and processor and he watches it run like it's black magic or some shit.
>He got his last PC by paying $2500 to an 'expert'
Yeah, he's dumb
He should buy from a trusted distributor and get a good SLA
if it's one computer it doesn't really matter, but if you have a lot of them, it's just not affordable when something goes wrong
building cars -> nope you assemble pieces of steel
building bridges -> nope you assemble concrete and steelbeams
building houses -> nope you assemble bricks
building electrical plant -> nope you assemble cables and devices
so...what is really "built" in your opinion? I'm genuinely curious.
oh god, I've never saw so much retard in an autistic post.
Building components to assemble into a device, and simply assembling components, are two different things you dumb fuck.
One is building a computer, the other is assembling a computer.
You are too fucking illiterate and stupid as fuck to even understand this basic logic. No wonder /g/ is a mainstream electronic jerk board, rather than a technology board.
All the intelligent people went to /diy/
> butt mad
Why don't you learn how to build computers like the rest of the kids with the LEGO blocks, anon?
>buttmad PC assembling kiddo thinks he "tech literate" because he knows how to assemble LEGO blocks
>gets even more buttmad when it's pointed out his shitty use of the word "build" is transparent and incorrect, starts a fit because now everyone sees him for the brainless wannabe tech "geek" that he is
My work is done. I shall now enjoy some beer.
>use of the word "build" is transparent and incorrect
care to prove it? because in the definition of build, it LITERALLY SAYS: "to construct (something) by putting parts or material together."
hahaha holy shit get btfo. you need to get drunk to recover from this.
>inb4 you carry on this charade to not lose face, in the vein of "I was only pretending to be retarded!"
It's not their fault that idiots don't realize that building a computer is essentially like building legoes.
I mean, it's not like people who build cars and houses usually manufacture the building materials or the car parts themselves.
>>A builder of houses isn't a builder because he doesn't manufacture the materials.
People who build houses manufacture the cement they use and do have to manufacture a lot of the materials themselves.
Ergo they qualify as "builders".
The fuck do you manufacture in order to "build" a computer? Nothing.
So you are not a builder. You are an assembler.
They manufacture cement on the spot before assembling for bridges, they also have to smelt custom metal beam parts.
The same goes with houses.
The same goes with electrical plant.
The same goes with cars (anyone customizing cars has to manufacture their own components to patch shit up with smelting, or build their own exterior panels.
Your own argument goes against you.
>anyone customizing cars has to manufacture their own components to patch shit up with smelting, or build their own exterior panels.
What about people who mod their components and build their own case?
> construct (something, typically something large) by putting parts or material together over a period of time.
> "the factory was built in 1936"
> synonyms: construct, erect, put up, assemble;
>there is an unfigurative pride associated with assembling your computer
Those are builders. They actually have to modify, grind, create custom parts in order to fit in, and use base material to construct components on the spot that will become part of a build.
When such shit happens, that's building a PC.
I mean, just because idiots associate "building a computer" with something more challenging than building a model kit doesn't mean the wording is incorrect.
People who build engines don't actually make the parts themselves either.
>People who build engines don't actually make the parts themselves either.
You'd be surprised. Especially when shit happens.
But i think there is a good reason "assemble" and "build" exist as two separate words. They MAY be labeled as synonyms, but not necessarily, as there are some tiny logical differences.
Technically if you assemble computer from ordinary parts, you don't build it you assemble. But if you make some custom loop water cooling, bend and cut tubes, minor or not so minor modding of the case its building.
>People who build houses manufacture the cement they use
>They manufacture cement on the spot before assembling for bridges
No, they assemble the cement by adding water to a pre-manufactured mix.
>they also have to smelt custom metal beam parts
This is done by someone else who then ships the beams to the site where they are assembled into what becomes the bridge or whatever.
Maybe they do it where you work, but i observed 2 bridge constructions in my city, and in both they ordered individual batches from a nearby sandpit and made their own mix, and they had to repair fuckups and flawed metal components (like chains) by smelting and molding on the spot.
>still hanging around an hour after the fact, fuming that you got btfo
>h-heh everyone took my bait and got btfo so hard, right guys???
how about you assemble a ladder to climb out of the hole you built for yourself
quality thread op
totally not arguing over semantics
What is a synonym for assemble?
....at least you got the ass part right
>tfw you try to talk up your technical prowess on your resume but later find out your employer actually knows his shit
You mean "assemble".
You assemble computers.
I am building a computer.
In fact just finished smithing the die head so I can start extruding the copper I refined last year into wires.
Exactly. If you have computer parts, you can then build a cumpoota! :D
The difference between building and assembling probably implies the number of parts or steps required to finish the product.
A computer has at best 10-20 unique components or steps when a lego structure has hundreds to thousands.
So, you build with legos and assemble computers. You assemble furniture and build it from scratch.
Whatever, I don't particularly care.
1.construct (something, typically something large) by putting parts or material together over a period of time.
synonyms: construct, erect, put up, assemble
-commission, finance, and oversee the building of (something).
"the city council plans to build a bridge"
-incorporate (something) and make it a permanent part of a structure, system, or situation.
"engineers want to build in extra traction"
synonyms: incorporate in/into, include in, absorb into, subsume into, assimilate into
"emergency procedures must be built into every plan"
tl;dr, you're wrong.
I hate when autists try to arbitrarily redefine words. It's so irritating. Who the fuck is going to use a 3-syllable word when a 1-syllable word communicates the idea just fine. This board is full Dwight Shruders man.
Of course, everyone should always use the simplest most broad words to get their point across instead of words with more precise meaning to better explain exactly what it is they are trying to convey.
Could you make it any more obvious that you have absolutely zero construction or automotive experience?
"Build" is a synonym for "assemble" about as much as "PC" is a synonym for "Laptop".
Sure a Laptop is a personal computer, but it's inferior to a Desktop in all areas besides portability.
Sure assembling is part of the building process, but building requires more practical skills and has more steps than just stuffing together components, as building also includes customizing and modifying components themselves.
Oh, and PC assembling isn't /g/. It's >>>/toy/
"I build computers"
"I assemble computer PARTS"
When you "build" something, it implies that the "something" is the end product. What you assemble are the parts USED to build the end product.
MOMMY MOMMY, I BUILT A COMPUTOR, I STUCK A GRAPHICS CAR INTO A MOTHERBOARD
DOES THAT MAKE ME A TECHIE NAO?
LMFAO! NO THEY DON'T YOU GOD DAMN AUTIST! construction companies BUY bags of DRY cement add water and slap it into where it goes....they BUY lumber BUY siding BUY insulation etc etc....according to the dumbass who made this thread houses are only assembled not built
NO JIMMY, IT MAKES YOU A FAGGOT
>10 minutes at most to assemble one
Are you a factory worker?
>10 minutes to take a bath
You mean to take a shower? I think we have a different definition of what "taking a bath" looks like.
A PC assembly service does not cost $200.
Fuck's sake, NCIX offers it for $50.
>A PC assembly service does not cost $200.
>Fuck's sake, NCIX offers it for $50
I'm talking about traditional prebuilts, not some service that will take parts and put them together.
>"Why would you want to waste your time when you could pay someone to do it for you?"
That's the original point I had in mind.
You can send a custom PC build to the assembly service and they will build it for you regardless, provided that the parts you're buying are coming from them (NCIX for example).
Prebuilts are inefficient in all aspects and buying one would be a mistake.
I find "build" acceptable when it comes to computers because you do take engineering strategies into mind such as the obvious, speccing it out, but also airflow and fan placement, dust mitigation, etc. You are designing a "build" with an engineering goal or goals in mind.
I don't think "assemble" quit covers it if you're designing the computer yourself. If you're just following instructions, then yeah, you're assembling. If you're making goal oriented engineering decisions, you're building.
