Building the Perfect Gaming PC

Building the Perfect Gaming PC

Whether you decide to build your gaming PC yourself or have it built by someone else, there are many key factors you need to consider to make it perfect. Consider how your PC will be built, as well as the time it will take, how much it will cost, and the parts you will use.

Before deciding on anything, you should consider what your budget is to build your PC. This will determine everything from who will be building it to what type of parts you will have. Once you have your budget, you can decide whether you are building your own PC or whether you will have someone else build it. Custom PCs can be ordered online or by telephone major computer companies. You can also check a local computer store, since they will not incur shipping costs, high taxes, and other fees.

Consider next how long it will take to build your gaming PC. Major computer companies that build custom PCs can take a month or more to build and ship them to you. Local companies can keep it inside of a month, and give you the option of picking it up when it’s ready. If you build it yourself, the time it will take is really up to you.

Finally, you need to consider the parts you will use. As far as monitors are concerned, gamers usually like one of two options. For the full gaming experience, you will either want a large monitor or dual monitors. Gamers typically choose wider monitors as opposed to taller monitors. Either can be easily configured. You will also want to consider how much hard drive space your gaming PC will have, a video card, and adequate memory.

Your hard drive space will really depend on your usage. If your games will be saved on your hard drive, you will want more space. A good video card may possibly be the second most important factor of a gaming PC, with memory being the first. Without a good video card, your game graphics won’t display the way they were intended. Alternatively, without an adequate amount of memory, your graphics, along with the rest of your gaming experience will run slowly, lag, and possibly shut down the game altogether. You will also need a fan that will be able to cool your machine to avoid burning your hardware out.
