We would like to create a short guide to help those who want to build their very first gaming desktop. Whether you’re interested in building a gaming desktop for first-person shooter games such as Battlefield 1 or open world games such as Grand Theft Auto V, it’s always highly recommended to build a custom gaming PC if you want to run these games without spending tons of your money.
With the information you’re going to get from this short article, there has never been a better time than now to build your own gaming PC! Not only you get to choose your budget and components of your gaming PC, but you’ll also have the chance to get the experience of building your own gaming PC.
Here are all the parts necessary to build your first gaming desktop:
First, you’re going to need a processor also known as CPU. For this, we recommend Intel Core 7.
Then you’ll need a motherboard that allows you to install your PC components. We recommend the Asus LGA 1150 socket.
Memory is one of the most important components of your gaming PC. Without having enough memory, your gaming PC will likely lag even for just surfing the internet. We recommend having at least 8 GB of RAM.
Graphics card (GPU) is not something we can overlook. In fact, your gaming PC must have a decent graphics card to play games. We recommend Nvidia GTX 980 for this important task.
You will need minimum storage of 1TB hard drive, or you’re going to run of space pretty soon. Games nowadays take 30-50 GBs of your hard drive, so you must make sure your hard drive is big enough to store your games. We recommend Western Digital Black.
You won’t be able to run your gaming PC without the power. We recommend Antec 850 watt modular for your power supply unit.
And of course, without a good case, your gaming PC wouldn’t be complete. We recommend Fractal Design Define R5 for this.
