Believe it or not having the fun and satisfaction of choosing your graphics card, processor, power supply, motherboards, RAM, hard drive and a case will not lead to a final installation disaster.
You won’t need a soldering gun, sophisticated testing devices or worry about a hospital trip via electrocution! Most of the parts in your home-made computer build will quickly snap together. A few screws will need to be tightened, so if you can use a simple screwdriver you are golden.
The most difficult technical task you may encounter could involve applying some thermal paste between your CPU and heat sink unit. If that task gives you sleepless nights, don’t worry. Many CPU’s have the heat sink and fan attached.
You can build a computer in three easy steps.
The first step is developing a budget for a gaming computer. You can create an economical gaming system for $500 or go radical and spend thousands and thousands. A great homemade computer, handling any of today’s most popular games is usually built for right around $1,000.
Once you have a budget, look at what components are needed and the case you want to put them in. Here is where you play the mad scientist. Here is where you will have the most fun by researching the best brands for your dollar, seeking the coolest looking components and making sure they are all compatible and will fit nicely into the case you chose to house them in.
The assembly, which I said is a snap, is the icing on the cake, the achievement of your goal! It’s now time to load your favorite game and soak in the high!!
