Part Selection:

There are few components that must be chosen wisely when building a gaming PC for next level gaming experience. These include:

Processor (CPU):-

The central processing unit that is serves as the “brain” of the PC. This broadly determines the speed of your computer. You need to choose a CPU and motherboard that are compatible with each other in terms of the manufacturer (Intel or AMD) and the CPU socket itself.

Storage:-

A hard drive (HDD) or solid state drive (SSD) is the part of the computer that stores the operating system and all digital files. HDDs are usually bigger and cheaper, but SSDs are much faster than hard drives and are highly recommended these days.

Power Supply Unit (PSU):-

It regulates the electricity that goes into the heavy little box computer and provides power to the individual components. The power supply is directly connected to the motherboard, CPU (via the motherboard), storage and other additional components as needed.

Graphics Card:-

Most CPUs come with onboard graphics that run everyday tasks well. But if you plan to play high-end PC games or run powerful media applications, you’ll need a separate graphics card. It connects to one of the motherboard’s PCI-Express ports.

CPU Cooler:-

All but the most expensive CPUs have a heatsink and fan inside the box. This is essential to prevent overheating. But if you plan on using your PC for high-end gaming, or want to over-clock your PC at some point, consider buying a bigger and more robust aftermarket cooler. They are available in air-cooled and water-cooled varieties. In the next article, we will discuss stock and aftermarket kind of installation.

Note: If you buy an aftermarket cooler, you may need a tube of thermal paste. Many coolers come with a free tube or come pre-applied, but make sure to purchase it separately.

Case Fans:-

In most cases, they come with one or two fans for main airflow, but if you’re serious about cooling, use any available mounting point. Or you can get an aftermarket fan that isn’t too loud (or comes in a nice color). Whatever you do, make sure you get the right size fan for your case! Most fans are 120mm in diameter, but some may have 80mm or 140mm fan mounts.

These are the parts you need to get your computer up and running. For more complex builds, you can add some or all of the components.

Add-On Components:-

Open slots for CD drives, SD card readers, or older floppy disk drives, thanks to the motherboard’s PCI-E, SATA, and M2 ports, may add more or less space to your build to add. Additional USB ports, sound card, fan manager options are limited by build only. Check if the add-on works with your case and motherboard.
