How to Build a Gaming PC

I’ve always been a fan of gaming ever since I was a little girl. I started out with PC gaming, but recently have moved towards console gaming. Many of my friends are also big gamers, and have talked about the benefits of building your own gaming PC for ultimate customization. I always thought, “oh geez, I could never do that. I know not the first thing about building computers.” Turns out, it’s pretty straightforward. Although it seems expensive, for the quality of PC you can build, it’s much cheaper than buying a standard PC. Although I console game, I’m a part of the PC master race. PC has better graphics, and I prefer the controls of a keyboard and mouse to a controller. The first thing to take into consideration is the type of CPU (Central Processing Unit) you want to get. This step is important because it will dictate what kind of motherboard you get. The Intel Core i5 6600 is a great CPU to get, priced reasonably at $215. You also need to get a CPU cooler to ensure the CPU doesn’t overheat. You can get the CoolerMaster Hyper 212 Evo for $35. Fortunately, you don’t need to go all out with the motherboard. The MSI H110M fits the Intel Core i5 6600 CPU, and is reasonably priced at $45. You also need to buy a RAM (Random Access Memory). This enhances the storage capacity on computers. The graphics card is the most expensive thing you’ll buy. Although the prices range from inexpensive to expensive, it’s better to just suck it up and get an expensive one that will last longer and have less bugs. Finally, you’ll need a case to store this bad boy. I might actually do this.
