Games that induce the cloak of graphical capabilities into a home PC is the starting point of budding game developers. Just about every new category of the game had its start in a PC. To build the best gaming PC you need to know certain things that we are going to talk about in this article

Fundamental Components required

To configure a simple setup you might need the following components:

  • Latest Motherboard or Central processing unit (CPU) – a modest range of motherboards at a low cost to feature-rich motherboards. (Extended ATX, ATX, Micro-ATX, and Mini-ITX.)
  • CPU Cooling unit
  • Full-fledged RAM – 8 – 16GB of RAM
  • The newest version of GPU
  • Storage unit
  • HDD or SSD
  • Keyboard, mouse and display unit.
  • Light source
  • Screwdrivers

Step 1: PSU and Cooling Unit

Since these two units are a bit heavy, it is recommended to mount them first. Start installing the power supply unit and the water cooler’s storage heater as these two are the largest of all other components, and it is safe to mount them before setting up any other units.

Step 2: Mount the Central Processing Unit

The most delicate parts among them all are the motherboard and the RAM unit. So before you accidentally drop them off or Jam it, it is better to mount them into their respective sockets as per the arrow marks in the units. These components provide the actual shape for the machine. It is recommended to use a multi-core type of CPU as the latest type of games is designed to use the same.

Step 3: Install the HDD and RAM

Check if the HDD/ SSD are of 3.5-inch or 2.5-inch type unit. The latter one might need a bit of manual work to mount them. While the former is as simple as it sounds to get them installed. Make sure the power connector is towards the back side.

However RAM is comparatively easy to fit into its slot, but it doesn’t at the all-time snap in without a glitch during the initial set-up. Make sure to support the RAM appropriately using the hold to know which side is up against the other side

Step 4: Install the GPU and Test Run

The longest PCIe* slot on the motherboard is the GPU. Remove the GPU from its pack and gently push it into the appropriate slot. Once the GPU is ultimately settled, make sure to tighten it using screws. After successfully installing all the required components, you may have to do a rapid test run of the unit to ensure that they are all in place.

Step 5: Mount the storage unit

Locate the 2.5-inch or 3.5inch slots in the motherboard to install the HDD and SSD. Once after securing them in their place, connect them using SATA cable and to the PSU. Next is to establish the required operating system and make sure all the installed components are recognized. Follow the OS installation instructions that appear on the screen. And you are done!

The most excellent thing about building the best gaming pc is that the job is not done yet. You may need to read through PC gaming reviews and watch out for the upgrades in the market. You must realize the fact that the work is always in-progress!
