A Guide For PC Build Components

PC Build Guide

Can anyone build a PC?

Yes. Anyone can build a PC. You don’t have to go shop for a complete PC build. I find as a PC enthusiast that having the choice of components will greatly satisfy what exactly is wanted in a PC.  It does take a bit of research but it can be a great experience to learn and understand what is needed in order to build the type of PC you want.

Teaching a non-tech savvy person

I have a few friends who are interested in computers but never really thought about the options of choosing PC components separately for buying and building a PC. I briefly explained the parts of the PC and what needs to be considered.

  • CPU: The central processing unit which needs to be matched with a compatible motherboard chipset.
  • CPU Cooler: The component needed to cool down the CPU during operation.
  • Motherboard: One of the most important parts as it will determine what can be connected how the compatible components will run.
  • Ram: Random Access Memory is fast volatile memory needed to house temporary storage for the operating system use and application opened
  • Storage: Non-volatile memory such as Solid State Drives (SSD) or Hard Disk Drives (HDD) to store data such as an Operating System (OS) and pictures, music, videos, and games.
  • GPU card: Graphical processing unit which processes the graphical user interface.
  • Power Supply: The PSU is needed to power the machine.
  • PC Case: Needed to contain the components with fans for cooling.
