Building A Computer – Picking Components


Picking the parts for your PC is one of the most significant things in building a PC, since you cannot gather a PC without the parts! Picking parts for PCs has gotten a lot simpler than previously, in light of the fact that things have been normalized, be that as it may, you have to ensure everything will fit. The primary thing to consider while picking the parts for your PC is the thing that you will be utilizing it for. On the off chance that you are making a PC for simply browsing your eMail and utilizing word, you are going to require much diffrent parts than a PC that you will be utilizing for gaming. 


The main thing you should select about your PC is the thing that CPU you are going to utilize, in light of the fact that it figures out what motherboard you will get, which figures out what different parts you get. There are two fundamental CPU manufactruers, Intel and AMD. Both have their Pros and Cons, however they are truly comparative. I would recommend utilizing AMD, since they give you somewhat more value for the money. 

Here is a short outline of the diffrent Intel and AMD CPUs: 

Financial plan: AMD: Sempron 

Intel: Celeron D 

Midrange: AMD: Athlon 64 

Intel: Pentium 4 

Very good quality: AMD: Athlon64 X2 

Intel: Pentium D 

On the off chance that you are spending underneath $500, I would propose a financial plan proccesor, Between $500 and $1000, midrange and $1000 or more I would recommend a top of the line proccessor. 


Picking the privilege motherboard is fundamental to building your PC. To begin with, ensure you discover a motherboard that has the correct attachment type for your CPU. At that point, check the diffrent highlights of the motherboards you are taking a gander at. On the off chance that you arent going to purchase a video or sound card, ensure your motherboard has locally available video or potentially stable. Different things to check for on your motherboard are the hard drive interface, illustrations card interface, extension spaces, the memory size and speed. Additionally, check for the chipset. There are beyond any reasonable amount to discuss, yet for the most part Intel and nVidia chipsets are superior to different ones. Since you chose your motherboard, you recognize what to search for in your different parts. 


Getting the correct speed and measure of RAM is indispensable to the speed and security of your framework. On the off chance that you are running XP, you will presumably require at any rate 256 or 512Mb of RAM. On the off chance that you will be doing anything memory serious, gaming, delivering or simply need a quicker PC, you ought to get 1Gb. Ensure your motherboard has enough DIMMs and the correct kind of DIMMs for your RAM. Likewise, make certain to check the speed and CAS Latency. 

Hard Drive 

Presently its opportunity to pick your hard drive. There are not many factors in picking a hard drive. The first, and most significant is size, 120Gb is normally enough for the vast majority except if, you will be putting away alot of pictures and video. Additionally, ensure you get a HD with the privilege interace that accommodates your motherboard. Practically all motherboards have IDE, yet some have SATA (Serial ATA) Which is an a lot quicker hard drive interface and utilizations a more slender link which assists with wind stream for your situation. There is even SATAII now, which is twice as quick. Additionally take a gander at speed, practically all work area HDs are 7200RPM and Cache, most are 8Mb, dont purchase a HD underneath those guidelines. On the off chance that you need to go through some cash, you can get 2 HDs and run them in RAID which builds execution. 

Video Cards 

On the off chance that you will be doing any gaming, make certain to purchase a video card, if youre not, installed video is fine. The principal thing to check for is the interface, most are AGP or PCI-E. I for one like nVidia cards better. On the off chance that you will be doing realistic escalated games, I would propose at any rate a 6600. On the off chance that you have alot to spend, go with a 7800. 

Optical/Floppy drives 

Something else you are going to is a CD drive, most are IDE. Get a DVD Burner on the off chance that you are going to utilize it. Likewise, you ought to get a floppy drive, they are just $10ish and you may require it to introduce drivers when fabricating your PC. 

Case and Power Supply 

Ensure you have an adequate force flexibly!! On the off chance that you have a top of the line PC, you ought to get a 450W PSU. Something else, 350W ought to be fine for the vast majority. Most cases are ATX, yet ensure it is a similar kind as your motherboard (ATX, MicroATX, BTX, etc…). 

Make certain to ensure every one of your parts are perfect!
