We often preach how easy it is to roll your own rig, once you know how. And even if you don’t, it’s not hard to take that next step — all it requires is a little bit of research, some careful planning, and the right parts.

One of the best ways to learn how to piece together your own system is to build up experience by upgrading your existing PC.

Check out Mushkin’s new video showing a chimp installing a kit of RAM, and then celebrating (which is perfectly acceptable after completing your first build/upgrade).
