Are you thinking about building a computer “gaming PC” in 2017?
You have come to the right place. There are some things I think you should consider.
First off, I hope you’ve already started because Black Friday and Cyber Monday have already passed and if you want to build your own computer you want to make sure you don’t spend too much. The best gaming computer will be the one that YOU build. The satisfaction that you will get from building your own computer is unmatched to buying a “store-bought” fully assembled computer.
You can get away with buying a cheap gaming PC by doing it yourself and not having to hire a PC Builder. Now it’s possible if you did miss Black Friday/Cyber Monday that you can still put together a nice gaming PC build. The best part about building your own computer is that you will have a custom build PC.
Now this first video is just some considerations you should take into account when purchasing parts. I can assume you missed out on Black Friday Cyber Monday, but don’t fret because Br0ski is going to help you build your next gaming PC.
Gaming PCs are just like normal PCs. The assembly is pretty equatable to building with Legos. In the video above you’ll get an overview of the parts of the computer I used to build a server and the components in which I used to configure the server. The good news is computer memory is pretty cheap right now. PC Hardware, depending on where your shop, can be cheap. And if you’re really frugal you could try finding some used computer parts. However I would make sure that I get a warranty or make sure they include a return policy. Then you could test those parts.
Laptops are one alternative you could consider however I would suggest if you’re serious about PC gaming that you get your own rig. The reason being is you can always upgrade and configure the parts as you go The key to building your computer is that the case is ATX compatible. Remember that ATX is a standard used to build computers so all the parts will fit together. You will notice that almost all computer parts are labeled either ATX/ micro-ATX/mini-ATX etc….
Depending on if those components will fit inside the case. Most all computer parts will be labeled.
The main parts of a computer include the graphics card, the motherboard, CPU, a CPU Cooler, case, a power supply and a hard drive. An affordable gaming PC can cost anywhere from $300+ all the way up to…, if you want the best of the best $5,000. If you spend any more than that then you’re probably buying something from NASA.
To get you started before I put out my second video you can play around with this PSU calculator online in order to start configuring parts. All parts will need to be in relation to the PSU or power Supply.
In my second video I will include a more detailed description on computer parts and what you need to build a computer.
