How to Perfectly Choose Components for PC Built

Building a PC is not a big deal but choosing the perfect parts is really a big deal. you have to pick the components carefully for the better performance you want. we all do some sort of research and planning to select various components like processors, motherboard, graphics card, storage, power supply, etc.

Here I have explained to you about the different components and how you can choose the best component for your build so that you can get the best out of what you built in your budget. I have covered all the important points and things which you should keep in mind before just throwing out the money to buy over or under power hardware, which you can’t simply make use of.

The Budget and The Need

First, you have to decide the exact budget you have means how much money you can easily throw at your PC Built. One thing keeps in mind that lower the budget the more you have to compromise on quality and performance, so at least save a good amount of money for building a high-performance PC.

Second, decide your need with that Built. Computers are used by almost everybody now a day for various types of tasks like for gaming, content creation, 3D working, High-End Production work, Engineering stuff, Architecture, etc. So building the right PC for specific work is very important for us. Though all computers are undoubtedly capable of doing every task to some degree but its better to specialize in what you need.

Processors

Now, its time for a perfect CPU (Central Processing Unit), it’s literally the most essential part of any PC build. Choosing a good processor is again a big task between Intel and AMD, both the platform offers good processors with great computing power but has some pros and cons in them. prior Intel is ruling the world with a large market share in the processor market and from recent years AMD makes a huge come back in the market with really good processors like new Ryzen. Which created big doubt in the user’s mind which path is right Intel or AMD.

Intel Pentium and Celeron are affordable and best suited for basic computing tasks, media playback, and simple lifestyle applications. Meanwhile, Intel Core and AMD Ryzen serve the widest gamut of users looking to build anything from a cheap HTPC to an enthusiast gaming PC. Lastly, on the high-end tier, there are the Intel Core X and AMD Ryzen Threadripper for more intense workloads like video production, 3D modeling, and streaming gamers.

Intel’s Core i5 series of processors have traditionally been the preferred chip for gamers. As most mainstream titles are more graphically intensive than processor intensive, you won’t need the most powerful processor. And so for the best value for the money, the Core i5 was and still is ideal. The i5-8400 is the perfect chip for those on a budget. And of course, because AMD is finally back in action, we absolutely recommend the AMD Ryzen 5 2600X as well. Both Intel’s i5-8400 and AMD’s Ryzen 5 2600X pack a phenomenal punch when it comes to gaming. Intel slightly edges out on in-game frame rates single-core performance, while AMD swings back in computational tasks and more demanding workloads.

Basically, the Ryzen Processors are packed with higher core count and threads which allows you to do heavy multitasking with good performance. but then if the application you run requires the high-frequency core for better performance, Intel would be great.

Motherboards

A good motherboard is always required to handle the processor you choose. The motherboard features are mostly dependent upon the chipset you choose like in Intel Platform Z370, H370, B360 chipset support 8th gen coffee lake processors and in AMD X370, X470, B350 supports the new Ryzen processors. This different chipset model provides different features to the motherboard and available in the market in the different price segments.

what size motherboard right for you? ATX boards are geared towards vast storage solutions and hefty graphics card setups. And if you’re after a smaller system, Micro-ATX or Mini-ITX, providing a more compact size – though at the cost of fewer slots for graphics cards and other PCIe add-in cards.

I recommend you to thoroughly check about the feature you need in your motherboard like the Multi GPU supports (AMD Crossfire and Nvidia SLI), Overlocking if you like to do it, Multiple PCI-e Slots for expansions, USB generations, and Storage options, etc.

Graphics card

Every PC builds main components, graphics cards determine what your desktop will be able to visually render. While PCs can get away with just integrated graphics for simple tasks and even 4K streaming, creating their own media and gaming box requires the discrete graphical power that only a dedicated GPU can offer.

If your aim is to game at 1080p, the GeForce GTX 1060 3GB is your card. It’s the best card for the money out there, capable of easily hitting 60fps in most, if not all AAA titles at 1080p. It won’t let you down for at least the next 3 years. If you really do need the extra VRAM for memory-intensive games (here’s looking at you Witcher 3), then simply pump up for the 6GB variant instead.

There are alternatives out there, AMD’s Radeon RX Vega 64, Vega 54 and RX 580 (if you can find them), are fantastic combatants to this card, but they just can’t keep up on a pricing level

RAM (Memory)

In any PC you need an adequate amount of RAM for better performance. RAM holds bursts of information for a limited time to quickly complete tasks, so literally, all of your data will pass through this component of your PC.

For very basic gaming and web browsing, 8GB is enough, but as a whole, we recommend 16GB as the go-to for any build today. For video and photo editing, the more memory you have, the better. The Corsair Vengeance LED, HyperX Fury, and G.Skill Rampage V are all memory kits of choice that mix together a blend of affordability, speed, and reliability. 16GB (2x8GB) of dual-channel DDR4 running at 3200 MHz is ideal for gaming at 1080p or more for now and should future-proof you for the next 3 to 4 years at least.

Using High-frequency RAM in a PC where you simply not utilizing or the amount of workload is much less than it can capable to handle than its wrong investments.  Intel CPUs typically don’t benefit from faster memory in day-to-day tasks, however, Ryzen can see anywhere from a 10-15% performance increase, purely from utilizing faster memory. Keep in mind, motherboards don’t support unlimited memory speeds, so check the specification before buying incredibly fast memory. For example, it would be a waste to get 4,000MHz speed RAM and find out it could only reach up to 3,000MHz because of the motherboard’s limitations.

Storage

Previously we use Hard Drives which are fantastic for holding a ton of data at a very low cost. Meanwhile, SSDs can be exponentially faster, but opting for massive capacities will cost you a lot more than any mechanical drive. Thankfully SATA SSDs are now more affordable which yields greater performance than much slower hard drives. SSDs are very fast and snappy with improved read and write speeds. We recommend you to use SSD for a boot drive (Install OS) and use it for play games and application software. NVMe M.2 SSDs are lot faster than normal SATA SSD and especially recommended for high-end production work, 3D modeling, Video content, etc. we recommend you pick up a 1TB or more Hard Drive as well along with SSDs for better storage in less cost.

Power Supply

Power supply unit in PC is a very crucial part as it drives all the components by supplying power to them, without this crucial foundation, your PC will fail to even start. In the real world, it’s unlikely you’ll ever need more than a 650W for a single GPU build like we recommend here. When shopping for a PSU it’s advisable to get one with 20% more capacity than you’ll need: 10% for overclocking, and another 10% so you’re not running your PSU ragged at all times. The higher the efficiency rating (from good to best; bronze, silver, gold, platinum, titanium), the less electricity you’ll waste as heat.

If you are confused about how much power your PC Built needs then just check it with tools on the internet or specs of the components. Don’t skimp here. When a cheap PSU blows, it can take your whole system with it.

PC Case and CPU Cooler

The PC case you choose shouldn’t just be pretty; it should be as tool-less as possible, offer tons of cable routing options, and ample room equal to your PC building ambitions. As far as chassis choice, it all starts with what motherboard you’re using for your build. We’re not talking manufacturer, but the size. Make sure you pick up a case with good airflow and one that’s the correct size for your new system. The optional feature makes your case more modern and good looking like the RGB lighting, Fan Controls, tempered glass, etc.

Following the good and high-performance Procesor, you also need a good CPU Cooler, it doesn’t matter you choose Intel or AMD for you Build both need to keep cool for performance. CPU Cooler are two types of available Air Cooler and Liquid Cooler.

Air coolers as you might have guessed use air to push heat through an array of heat pipes and fins called a heatsink. These types of CPU coolers are generally affordable and easy to install, but can sometimes interfere with the installation of memory with tall heat spreaders or oversized graphics cards.

Liquid-coolers, on the other hand, are a bit more complicated as they use a closed loop of coolant to keep processors chilled. These are often more efficient and can keep your CPU running at lower temperatures than an air cooler. The only downside is these liquid-cooling units can be more expensive and intimidating to install at first.

Before buying any of the coolers make sure it is sufficient to give proper cooling to CPU in all types of workload and in overclocking as well (if you prefer overclocking). Always make sure the cooler Supports your processor’s socket type and the cooler is compatible with your case.
