Assembling a PC on your own is, first and foremost, a solution that allows you to choose the optimal configuration for the needs of a particular user. Also, self-assembling a computer is a way to save money. The question of how to assemble a cheap gaming computer is of interest to many users. Unfortunately, the performance of a computer depends largely on its cost. Therefore, it is now impossible to assemble a completely cheap gaming computer.
PC Power Up will help you to assemble a gaming PC with your own hands, both for users who need a smooth playback of an image on the screen, and for players for whom the quality of graphics is paramount.
Processor (Intel or AMD):-
Intel processors almost always prove to be more powerful than AMD gaming processors, while it is not absolutely important that the same Intel i3 has only 2 physical cores, and the same AMD FX-8300 has up to 8, and even a high frequency. But the bottom line is that Intel processors have strikingly higher performance in every core, and that performance gives them an edge over AMD processors in games, because games are rather reluctant to optimize for multithreading (multi-core).
The best gaming processor is almost any Intel i5 with a frequency higher than 3.2 GHz, and if you need more performance, then pay attention to the processors with the letter “K” at the end, such processors can be over-clocked , which adds to the performance and sometimes a lot! It is also worth keeping a balance between the processor and the video card, it is completely useless to put an Intel i5 in combination, say, with a GTX750Ti, but it will be too logical to put an i3 and a GTX980Ti, it will not be sufficient. Remember that the processor should not cost more than a video card!
A video card is the main component of a gaming computer, based on this component you have to build a gaming computer and the power of a video card is not measured in gigabytes or only in megabytes, in fact, there are no power measurements in principle. There are separate indicators, such as – the amount of memory, which is not so important if you have more than 3 gigabytes on a 15000r video card or 2 gigabytes on cheaper cards or the GPU frequency, which may differ between different models, the same product (same chip model, say GTX970, can be produced by a dozen companies and each video card will be different) etc. There are separate indicators, such as – the amount of memory, which is not so important if you have more than 3 gigabytes on a 15000r video card or 2 gigabytes on cheaper cards or the GPU frequency, which may differ between different models, the same product (same chip model, say GTX970, can be produced by a dozen companies and each video card will be different) etc.
RAM Volume & Frequency:-
In fact, the amount of RAM for games is only 8 gigabytes, in fact no more is needed, and the frequencies do not play a special role, therefore the best choice is 2 sticks 4 gigabytes of memory each with a frequency of 1600MHz, preferably Samsung Original or HYNIX Original. The boards without the word “Original” are fake ones on these chips and are of inferior quality.
