How to Build a Gaming PC

A Detailed Explanation

Building a gaming PC can be quite daunting, but it doesn’t have to be. Follow these simple steps and you will end up with the best possible gaming machine for your needs. The first step is to research what components are out there for sale or already in use by other users. Read reviews of different parts on sites like GreenGeeks and others. Once you know what you want, it’s time to start shopping!

Another important thing at this stage is deciding how much power do we actually need? It might seem better value if we go all-out now and upgrade later when games become more demanding but that isn’t always true as most people just over buy power they won’t ever utilize either way which only increases cost overall.


Buying GPU is a little tricky as it’s the most expensive part of a build. It is best to buy one from AMD or NVIDIA but always consider if buying second-hand is better value for money, check out sites like Ebay and Gumtree.

Buying motherboard is usually pretty easy. Find one that has enough ports for your needs, i.e USB and SATA, so you won’t have to buy an additional controller card later on.

Buying CPU is usually straight forward. Just make sure it will work with your motherboard and has enough cores to handle the tasks you plan on using it for.

Once everything arrives, assemble parts in a clean open area where dust or dirt cannot reach any sensitive electrical components such as PSU or GPU . Attach cables from different parts together according to instructions provided by manufacturers so nothing shorts out or fails during operation.
