Assuming you’re buying a desktop, your next step is to choose between pre-built PCs and custom PCs. One of the greatest appeals of PC gaming is that working within the system allows you to choose a system that matches your preferences, needs, and skill level. There are many options available, but in general there are three options:
- Purchase Pre-Build PC
- Build your own PC
- Someone else build your PC for you
If you decide to choose 2nd option Custom PC Build Wizard will assist you. Let’s see how to choose PC parts:
The first most important component is the processor. It is the most important component for computational tasks, content creation. Processor performance varies by number of cores, threads, and architecture. The architecture is improving with every generation, so you need to buy a gaming PC with the latest processor.
The 10th Gen Intel Core processor line starts with the Core i3-10100F with 4 cores and 8 threads and ends with the Core i9-10900K with 10 cores and 20 threads. An i3 processor might not be enough and an i9 might be overkill.
We choose RAM based on what type of memory your motherboard supports. Most motherboards currently support DDR4 memory. Further, we recommend that you install the RAM in dual-channel mode, that is, two dies of RAM installed through on the motherboard. For example, having installed a plate in the first slot, the second will need to be installed in the third slot, thus the dual-channel mode will be activated. The minimum amount of RAM we recommend is 16 gigabytes, but more is better!
SSD Vs HDD:-
When choosing drives, you should pay attention to the fact that you have to choose between HDD hard drives and SSD solid state drives.
We recommend both drives for installation, but if this option is not present, it is better to give your preference to SSD. Since the system will work and start up much faster than using an HDD drive. In terms of memory capacity, you should take at least 500 gigabytes.
We single out the following manufacturers: WD, Crucial, Samsung, Kingston, and Seagate. When choosing between drives, you should pay attention to the speed of reading and writing. More detailed tests of each drive can be found on the site.
When choosing a case, you should decide what size is most relevant for your computer location. Case form factors are as follows: ATX (Midi Tower), Mini-ATX (Mini tower), Micro-ATX (Micro Tower), and XL-ATX (Full tower). The hulls differ exclusively in size. Again, we strongly recommend that you pay attention to the form factor of the motherboard before choosing a case.
In addition, you should pay attention to the presence of additional fans for cooling the system. You can also see the glass “door” of the case with RGB backlighting; all these small details require the user’s attention, since now a PC can already be not only a system, but also an excellent addition to your interior!
