Guide to parts for building a PC: What parts do I need?

Published

on

If you’re looking for a PC, you can either go for a pre-built system or build your own. Both options have their pros and cons and appeal to different users. Building a PC is sometimes cheaper than buying the equivalent prebuilt alternative, and the user chooses every part of the build. On the other hand, pre-built PCs don’t require any technical ability, and they are pre-tested and come with warranties. 

Building a PC requires many components, often from different manufacturers, coming together to form a functioning system. Each part should be compatible with the others to ensure optimal functionality and the best performance possible. Since technology is improving rapidly, it’s advisable to buy the best parts possible and leave room for future upgrades.
