Students will learn how to build an entry-level graphics workstation from individual components, as well as install the operating system and trial editions of software. During the build, the class will also learn how to troubleshoot and fix various hardware and software errors. We will explore what the components do, how they relate to a digital content creation workflow and what to look for in making purchase decisions. Students will leave the course with a working computer they can take home with Linux installed. PREREQUISITE: SWC-1013, Windows and PC Basics, or SWC-1012, Macintosh Basics, or equivalent.
