How to know if building one is right for you?

        Identifying all the components you will need.

Steps to build your own gaming PC

Choosing Hardware

The typical hardware components you need to build PC are CPU/Processor, motherboard, memory (RAM), graphic processing unit/graphic card, storage, hard disk drive (HDD), solid state drive (SDD), power supply unit (PSU), cooling system, fan splitter, a perfect case and gaming peripherals such as keyboards, mice, headphones etc.

Budget and Upgrading

The performance of your PC is decided by the money you want to invest. Moreover, the look and power you want to provide depends on your budget. A high budget will enable you to buy high grade components that will assist in building a long term gaming PC. It’s better to choose the components which you can upgrade in future.

Components

The components we mention must be chosen appropriately. A wrong choice will complicate everything and even cause error while running programs or games. Assembling the components is easier much more than you think, the only thing that makes it difficult is choice. Some people find it hard to make a great choice and don't even do a proper research. They end up buying a inappropriate components, don't do this mistake please. The first thing you have to is research about various components you need to build the PC. Research thoroughly from online sites and you can even search for YouTube channels which deliver high quality content about the related topic.

Case

Most of the gaming cases we see today are upgradable for adding more or changing components in the future. It comes in various style, shaped and size. A new trend we have seen in modern PC is LED light.

To choose a proper case, first make sure that the case you have choose will sport all the components. Further, check is there any additional space for more drivers and whether cable management is perfect or not. There are lots of variety in cases but I like tempered glass PC cases, as they are more stylish.

Motherboard and Central Processing Unit

Motherboard and CPU are the main components of a PC that need to be selected together due to the compatibility requirements. A CPU with higher clock speed will do calculation faster and having multiple cores allows to multitask. It’s good if you know this but yet some people are not aware with this which makes it difficult to choose the right CPU.

Graphics

If you want to enjoy top-notch demanding games, there are few things to consider including type of graphic and it’s frame rate. There are two types of graphic consisting discrete and integrated. For a hardcore gamer, discrete graphic is best. Moreover, a graphic performance is determined by frame rate. A graphic with less than 60 fps frame rate is considered worst. So choose the one having more than 60 fps frame rate.

Memory/RAM

Choose the RAM of 16 GB and if you can't afford then better to choose 8 GB of RAM. Don't settle for less than we said or else you will face lag while playing any high end game. However, a system will support RAM of 64 GB that depends on your motherboard configuration.

Operating system

When you are building your own gaming PC, there is freedom to choose OS. There are few other OS than the major operating systems like Linux, mac and windows 10. It’s better to know first what programs you will run.

Storage

For quick response from system, the best choice you can make is SSD. Nowadays, even a high end laptop has 512 GB of SSD. SSD come with lower latency, smaller in size and faster as compared to HDD. If you can't invest high amount on SSD then better to go for their combination.

Power Supply Unit

This is something to be chosen correctly. PSU matters a lot when it comes to keep your components safe. Research and look for the PSU that can handle the load of components.

Cooling

Any PC or even laptop, generates a large amount for heat. You will find that some CPU have heat sink fans while others not. In that case, third party cooling system is must. It will assist in overclocking CPU. Modern cases already come with pre-installed exhaust and intake fans. Here you get two options to choose from, air or liquid cooling system. A liquid system is quite a good choice but it will be little expensive.

Peripherals

Gaming peripherals are an important part of gaming PC. They are like weapons we use to play game. Few renowned companies like Razer, Corsair and Logitech offers high quality gaming peripherals.

Some of the features to search for in gaming peripheral are extra keys, software customization and colourful backlit illumination. For example, you may need an online gaming VPN if your game has multiple servers internationally. Even if it lacks, no problem.

Assembling the PC

At last, assemble all the components in a desired manner. If you have done research about components and compatibility, it will take few hours to assemble your own gaming PC. In the process of assembling PC, keep away the flow of static electricity.

Conclusion

In the end, it's up to you what want you want and what not. We hope that after reading this post, you have got to know what to do and how to.

New Game: Company Of Heroes 2 Review


Company of Heroes 2 Review and System Requirements:

Since the release of the first Company of Heroes in 2006, World War II games have fallen out of vogue. Actually, since Spielberg lost interest post-Pacific, World War II media has taken an apparent backseat to modern warfare. Between 2006 and today, game development tools have become exponentially more sophisticated.
Company of Heroes 2 feels like a moment from 2004’s military history zeitgeist (three words I resolve to never place end to end again), and not only because it’s one of a sparing few games still tonally driven by tales of the courage of the common Allied non-com in WWII, but because it’s a WWII real time strategy game. That is, it’s a game about the value of the soldier in which the soldier is also little more than an expendable tool. Maybe that’s the point.

Company of Heroes 2 casts you in the role of a nameless Soviet or Nazi overlord with the ability to control any unit of the same nationality as they battle through the harsh winters of the early war on the Eastern Front all the way to the top of a crumbling Reichstag at the close of the European Theater. As with any RTS, my power is absolute, and terrifying. “Run directly into that artillery barrage, comrade!” You find yourself yelling at your computer screen. “For the motherland!” it yells back...
