How to build your own computer about setting up a PC
Perhaps the secret to building your computer has somewhat diminished with the popularity of laptops. But nothing is done by controlling and feeling the gaming machine with its hands. If this is new to you, then you have to outline the key elements you’ll need.
Motherboard and microprocessor (CPU)
Also known as the CPU, the microprocessor sits in the heart of every computer. It fits a dedicated socket on the motherboard, the size of a large circuit board ranges from 20 cm to 30 cm with each side – though it can be slightly shorter or slightly larger.
You can choose Intel or AMD CPU, and will work with major operating systems like Windows 10 or Linux.
The CPU is the place where things may get confused for the new ones. Intel and AMD offer different CPU families designed for consumers and models of games, and for those users the professional “workstation” which requires additional horsepower such as AutoCAD Drawing Rendering), Power Server in the Data Center . For games, the Intel CPU will be designed for LGA1151 socket or AMD Ryzen CPU.
Motherboards are usually prepared with a specific set of microprocessors, so you will need to decide whether to go with Intel CPU or AMD CPU from the beginning.
Motherboards differ in specifications, such as supported terminal port, whether they have the built-in Wi-Fi network, better sound, or even to increase the cooling factor in the underlying light.
Some, such as the people of Asus, offer special capabilities keeping players in mind, such as the ability to lift CPU frequency (not recommended for beginners) for better performance.
Graphics Processor (GPU)
GPU, or GPU, will undoubtedly be a familiar term for players. Special electronic circuits designed to speed up the creation of images and graphics GPU is the axis of good gaming machine.
To be clear, modern CPUs are already equipped with an “integrated” graphics capability, depending on the motherboard – supports up to three screens. For players, the only way to get the added charm of a discrete graphics card is to.
Discrete GPUs are extra circuit boards that you put in the motherboard, though large hot tub and large fans mean that the circuit board is mostly blocked.
While graphics cards are sold by many vendors, they all originally use NVIDIA or AMD graphics units. In some cases, two or three cards of the same graphics can be installed and used simultaneously to improve graphics performance.
There are a large number of graphics card options to choose from, so expect to spend some time, searching for the best fit based on the budget you usually play and the type of your budget.

Memory or RAM is temporary storage and work space for loading your operating system and application. RAM is generally better, even if you have reached the falling level of returns.
RAM is usually sold in rectangular “stick” which is lined with compact memory module which opens on the motherboard. For performance reasons, it is generally recommended to upgrade the memory in pairs, ideally as part of the “package” purchased at the same time.
8GB can be made from 4GB stick; 32GB can be made from 4GB sticks.
All these games can take a lot of space, especially with the popularity of digital distribution platforms like Steam and Origin, which provides the ability to download and run full-version beta versions with one click.
There are two main data storage options, traditional hard drives (HDD) or the latest solid state drive (SSD).
The former has been the mainstay of storage for the past few decades and it provides affordable storage and proper performance. The desktop hard drive looks like 3.5 inches flat metal brick and can be stored up to 500 gigabytes (GB) to 12 terabytes (TB).
Solid-state drives provide better performance to users who want to pay premiums and are mainly offered in M.2, which looks like a thick stick of gum. Between efforts to reduce the prices of solid-state drives (SSDs), drive manufacturers are experimenting extensively with mixed-performance flash chips and various price points.
In general, you get what you pay, and probably do not want to get a cheaper SSD if performance is a top priority.
The general arrangement for SSD installation is small (and therefore less expensive) with hard drive as a secondary motor for media content and data storage. All motherboards support 3.5-inch storage drives Storage drives will come with the latest ones M.2 slots.
