Building a PC is not for everyone. Even if you have the skills to put together the best PC, it may not be optimized for the best performance. The dilemma is that the major manufacturers may not offer the specifications that you want. If you want more than the manufacturers have to offer, you must have your PC built to your custom specifications.

High-end PC parts

It is necessary to do your own research on PC parts. There are always new products being launched which are faster and more efficient. Some of them may meet your needs, but make sure you can afford what you need. If you are on a budget, it makes sense to prioritize the features that are most important to you.

You can always update your parts in the future for better performance, so don’t worry about being stuck with outdated parts when your budget is tight. This is the fundamental difference between custom built PCs and pre-assembled models.

Choose parts for the best performance

Here are some additional things you can consider to build your PC:

GPU

A graphics processing unit (GPU) is one of the most important components of a gaming PC. If you plan to play games in high resolution, this will meet your gaming needs. Make sure you choose one that offers the best energy efficiency and is powerful enough for the frame rates you want. It is also possible to have more than one GPU, but you have to check your motherboard if it has the slots for it.

Video RAM

The GPU lives and dies on video RAM. Make sure you have enough video RAM. You just have to prioritize how much VRAM you need. Fast refresh rate and lots of VRAM contribute to the best gaming experience.

CPU

The processor or central unit handles all the operations of a PC, but it really depends on what tasks you plan to use your computer for. If your applications need more memory and speed, you may want to consider installing an additional processor. The i9 is Intel’s choice for the gaming processor, but gamers swear by AMD’s Ryzen processor.

CPU cooler

A CPU cooler is an essential component, especially for gamers. It prevents your processor from heating up and frying. When the heat between the processor and RAM exceeds certain thresholds, your PC may crash. With this component, you will be able to play games longer without worrying about damaging your components.

RAM

Of course, you’ll need fast RAM for faster PC performance. So the question is, how much RAM do you really need? If your job requires your computer to multitask a lot with memory-intensive applications, then it makes sense to invest in something bigger. Having 16 GB is the minimum for games. Having 32GB to 64GB of RAM is recommended for the heavy processing required by games.

Hard disk

Make sure there is enough space on your hard drive for all of your files. It is better to go for an SSD rather than a hard drive because the former is faster. You can also have your operating system in the SSD and have a hard drive as a secondary drive to store your games.

Monitors

If you plan to connect multiple monitors, you should make sure that your PC has enough ports and power supply to support them all. Moreover, you should also consider the refresh rate of the monitor. Fast refresh rate is needed to ensure smooth gameplay. A 120Hz monitor looks great, but 144Hz is the best. HD video at 1080p is the minimum, and there are 4K games on the market now.

Cooling fans

A gaming computer will heat up and it must have fans to ventilate the heat. You should prioritize the number of cooling fans based on the noise they cause. Liquid cooled systems are more efficient, but they are also expensive.

The materials used to make desktop computers are constantly evolving and it is important to keep abreast of the latest trends. Make sure your PC can support all the latest technology by regularly updating your parts.

Build your own computer can be a daunting task. You have to do your research on your own, so it’s best to be organized. When choosing the parts for your build, prioritize what you really need and nothing more. You can always upgrade later when you have the budget for it. Remember, custom PCs aren’t just about performance; they also relate to personalization.
