The decision to choose to assemble or purchase a pre-assembled machine depends on your own needs. You need a machine that you can customize. Or a machine that someone has set the specification for but is guaranteed to work. Both methods have the same goal. Many gamers today choose to build their own machines to ensure they get the best components for their gameplay.
Here are some PC Parts you must consider if you prefer custom build system:
The card you get depends on what you want to do. Even if you’re looking for a high-end game, you probably won’t have to spend as much as you think. There are a huge number of cards from numerous companies at different price points.
Specifically, take a look at the benchmarks for the games you want to play and see which cards work best for your budget.
Finally, make sure the card you buy can get enough power from your PC. Most mid-range and all high-end graphics cards require a dedicated electrical connection to the power supply in addition to mounting on the motherboard. Recommended brands that you can’t go wrong with are EVGA, ASUS, GIGABYTE, MSI and XFX.
You will need full electrical capacity suitable for your build, the correct number of pins on the motherboard and CPU rails, and sufficient additional rails for graphics cards, storage drives and other power supplies.
It may seem daunting, but once again a site like PC Builders also known Computer Part Picker can do most of the heavy lifting. Then you just have to double check the spec and make sure everything matches.
Recommended brands are Corsair, EVGA, and Cooler Master. These are a few good ones, but there are many others. But just because a brand is good doesn’t mean you shouldn’t do your homework. A good brand can make a poor quality PSU, so check the expert reviews before you buy.
Almost all new motherboards and power supplies are now compatible with hard drives, solid state drives, and DVD drives. They all use the same SATA cables and data ports. As long as you don’t have more drives than SATA ports, that’s fine. It also uses the SATA power rails from the power supply. This should have enough plugs for at least two drives.
Recommended brands are Samsung and SanDisk for SSDs, Western Digital, Seagate and HGST for hard drives.
HDD, SSHD & SSD: What to Choose?
HDD hard drives are hard drives that are inexpensive but are slower than hybrids and SSDs. To install games, we strongly recommend that you choose a hard drive with more than 7200 rpm or you may have some problems. SSHD hard drives are also called hybrids. They are much faster than HDD hard drives but cost slightly more. For a gaming PC, an SSHD hard drive does the job perfectly.
SSD hard drives are impressive not only for their speed but also for their price which can sometimes be exorbitant.
