As a gamer, it would really be irritating to experience hangs or lags every now and then. With the said issues, a normal pc won’t be enough to support their gaming needs. They would need a bunch of items to upgrade in order for them to play their favorite games without any issues. In this article, I’ll be helping you build your own gaming pc.

PC case – I would recommend you to get a full tower case so that you won’t have any problems in installing or upgrading your pc. A full tower case is also good for installing multiple fans to better dissipate heat.  Another option is to buy a case that is already customized for gaming. It may be more expensive than a regular pc case, but it’s worth it.

Processor – A dual core processor can handle games decently but I’ll definitely go for a quadcore or even an Iseries processor which could make gaming faster.

CPU fan – While playing games, the CPU becomes hotter than usual and it is necessary for you to buy a CPU fan which can help you cool your CPU and can also prolong it’s life.

Video card – The video card is one of the most important parts in building a gaming pc. Make sure that your video card can play the latest games in the market. Recommended video cards must be 1 GB or above.

Power Supply – For the power supply, I recommend power supplies above 500watts to avoid power shortage. The more devices you attach on your computer, the higher your wattage must be. I also recommend using a branded power supply for your computer.

Memory – The higher memory, the better. If your motherboard supports 8 GB and you have the budget, upgrade it and you will feel the difference.

Mouse and keyboard – A gaming mouse and keyboard would be the best for your computer. Certain keys and buttons are customized for your gaming experience.

Fans – As much as possible, install fans to avoid overheating. Cooling fans are really helpful to maintain your computers temperature to a cool level.

In building a gaming PC, the first thing you need is the budget. Building a gaming pc is different from building a normal pc because gaming parts are much more expensive. For gamers, it is advisable to put your pc in an air-conditioned room to really prevent overheating. A Gaming pc generates more heat compared to a regular computer, so make sure that you’ll let your pc rest for a few hours.
