    Tips For Building A Computer

    Practices In general

    Tips for building a computer, So I would assume that anyone who reads this article is simply just looking for a few good tips or a simple guideline to follow while progressing on a computer or home PC build of their very own. Now firstly I don’t think there is any said initial tip for building a computer but more or less so good steps and practices following.

    1. Case – Proper Case Sizing and Ventilation needs and requirements 
    2. Motherboard – Expansion for future builds
    3. Ram – How fast do you want to go
    4. Graphics – Balancing speed, Models & Texturing
    5. Cooling – Liquid or Traditional Air Cooling
    6. Power – Consumption and typical output to components
    7. Optical & Hard Drives – CD Burning Capability or Blu-Ray

    These being some things to take into consideration when engaging in your next build, we will go through each one of these components for certain things to take into consideration when planning. Like a good map or battle plan, consideration should always be taken when sizing your components. One you moved past certain aspects such as motherboard and CPU (central processing unit) you will become less limited in the directions you would like to.

    Careful thought needs to be utilized when thinking about the future of your machine or family computer, will you be purely gaming, using it to run 3D cad programs or simply using it to figure out your families bottom line for the month. All things that should be thought about before you start shopping for High-End components. Proper care and thought should be primarily going into the type of ventilation you will need in your case and how big you will want to go in terms of expansion in the future which can save you a lot of time and money.

    When sourcing parts there is not need to go for the latest and greatest on the market unless your persistent on being able to everything imaginable to man on your new-found personal computer. Personally I game when I can find the time these days but more or less I lean to processing and graphical capability due to my lines of work I need multi functioning monitors and such to be able to do multiple things at once. Not day trading by any means but close enough, my needs differ from that of anyone else more importantly.

    This is why we have all traversed the web looking for answers simply because we don’t want to do the store bought thing anymore and would prefer doing it the old-fashioned way from scratch. Building of personalized computers at home is a very fundamentally simple and unique thing, in a sense unless your dismantling anything physically there is not a lot that can go wrong, take your time and if needed take pictures to catalog your process if you feel you may forget or leave something out.

    But for the most part it is a pretty personalized journey that a lot of people just don’t understand fully and that is when it comes to having a home PC, not that many people do with the golden age of the laptop. Is that if you are going to pay top dollar for a build that someone else thinks you should be using is that imagine for that exact same price tag and in more cases than often a lot less.

    Some may also ask and inquire about the use of used components in personalized computer builds and that is something I will go into a lot more later on I’m sure. But for now I will Just say this, that itisntirely your show and you will make the final call but personally I do it all the time even more so If I’m strapped for cash but I tend to stick to just grabbing something new that Ive witnessed come out of a box at some point. Like I said I will go deeper into this when i get some time but its really up to the builder if He or She deems the componant good and reliable enough to incorporate into a system build then by all means.
