If you’re new to building a PC, then it might all seem very daunting to you right about now. Your friends with very extensive gaming PCs are probably telling you to buy components that will cost you an arm and a leg and you don’t even know what these things are and why you need then and then you see all these YouTube videos teaching you to build your own PC in such a way that you just can’t wait to get started.
All of us PC gamers have been there and we can empathise with you; it’s confusing yet exciting. To make things simpler, here’s a ‘grocery list’ of sorts that will tell you what components you need to buy first to get started with your first gaming rig. You can check out Cable Tech Talk to learn more about the best of these components out there right now, if things get too confusing at any point.
Your PC’s case actually has a lot more to do with its performance than you think, a good PC case should be roomy enough for your graphics card and your processor to be able to breathe and it should also have adequate ventilation options so that you can add more fans later on to cool it down. Make sure to pick one that does all this and looks awesome too.
The Power Supply
You don’t have to worry about how good or bad your power supply unit looks because it will be hidden deep within your case, but you’ll want one that can provide more than what power you need.
The Mother Board
Gaming PC motherboards are made to perform and look great at the same time; this is the third most essential component you need to be able to power your PC on at the very least.
