Here are some guide for you to build your own PC:
Step 1 : Define your purpose of building the PC
First you must know the purpose of your PC. Whether you’re building a high-end gaming PC, a workstation, or a sleek new home theatre system, or anything in between, each build is going to have its own special set of requirements.
Step 2 : Select your CPU
Two main types of workloads to be considered:
- Single-threaded : involve simple tasks such as web browsing, word processing, listening to music, etc.
- Multi-threaded : involve photo editing, video encoding and gaming.
Step 3 : Select your Graphics Card
Workloads like gaming, watching high-definition content, video editing, and professional 3D modeling all require the use of a separate graphics processor in order to run properly and efficiently.
Step 4 : Select your Motherboard
There are some considerations that you can use when choosing motherboard:
- What type of socket your CPU will use?
- What type of chipset do you need?
- How many graphics cards do you plan on using?
- How many PCIe Lanes do you need?
- If on-board graphics are used, how many display outputs are required?
- If on-board sound is going to be used, how many audio connections will be required?
- How many fans did your CPU need?
- How many memory modules will be installed?
- How many network connections will be used?
- How many Serial ATA, mSATA, SATA Express, or M.2 drives will be installed?
- What other internal or external connections might be required?
- Will RAID be required? If so, what modes are needed?
Step 5: Select your Memory
- Depends on what type of RAM that your motherboard support (DDR, DDR2, DDR3, etc)
Step 6 : Select your Storage
- How much memory did you need for your PC?
Step 7: Select your Power Supply
Power supply is actually one of the more important parts of a build. Picking a quality power supply can mean the difference between a well running system and one that suffers from crashes and boot failures.
Two things that need to be considered:
- Overall Wattage : measure of how much overall power a system needs in order to function.
- Rail Specific Power : measure of how much power certain components in a build draw from the power supply.
