How to build your own PC?

Posted on

Hello guys today I will writing about how to build your own PC from components.

First thing first. First you need to figure out what type of pc you want to build. Would it be Intel based PC or AMD based PC, and what type of graphic card you will be using.

Choosing a graphic card could be very difficult, because there is a lot of type of graphic cards out there. I would recommend to go for the cheapest one. The cheapest one would be OK for a while but later on it will not have enough recourses for your recommendations. To compare graphic cards go to this website this website compares graphic cards and it will help you to make your decision.

Anyway you need to get all the components together to build a PC.

you need:

1. Case

2.CPU – Intel or AMD

3. RAM

4.Power Supply


6.Hard Drive

7.GPU – Graphics card

8.CD/DVD Drive

9.Monitor – Optional if you don’t have one

10.Cooling paste for CPU – its supported with CPU but other ones are better

11.Keyboard/Mouse – Optional

12.Speakers – Optional


So when you have all the components lets start build your PC!!

Start off with putting CPU unit on to your motherboard, like in the picture bellow.

When the paste is applied, then put on your CPU heatsink which is provided with the CPU or you can get after market one which provides better cooling for you processor.

When thats has been done, the install power supply into the case and secure it with the screws provided with it. See image bellow.


Then install the motherboard in to the case

On the booklet there is graphical images which shows you where all the cables go. It’s straight forward “It’s not a rocket science”.
