What to consider when building your PC?
The biggest task configuring your Gaming PC is matching your budget to the performance of the Gaming PC. As long as you understand what matters, you shouldn’t run into any problems. Here are the key points you need to consider.
The AMD FX range are excellent budget processors and open you up to the ever-growing world of eSports. Partner them correctly with other components and you’ll be able to play most games on Ultra settings in 1080p. If you prefer Intel then Pentium or Core i3 is the way to go for budget, the latter being likely at the higher end of your budget. For advice on the right combinations, feel free to contact our helpful support team via our contact us page.
New games are requiring more and more RAM usage. Most games still only require 8GB of RAM but some are creeping over and more and more are doing so all the time. Therefore, if your budget can stand it, we recommend putting 16GB of RAM in your Gaming PC. If it can’t, don’t worry too much as games will still play with 8GB of RAM, just not quite as well, and you can always add another 8GB at a later date.
The best value storage for a PC at the moment is 1TB. This size of the hard drive is plenty to start you on your gaming path. 2TB is fast catching up and will take over 1TB for best value very soon. Solid State Drives are a great way to speed up your PC, but if your budget can’t stretch then try looking at a 1TB SSHD, Solid State Hybrid Drive. This brings the speed of an SSD and the storage size of a 1TB platter drive together. They are roughly 5 times faster than a normal mechanical drive and are far cheaper than buying a 120GB SSD and 1TB HDD. This is a smart choice for a PC build.
In a gamer’s book, it’s not a Gaming PC if the graphics are not up to par. There is a fantastic array of budget cards on the market, such as the Nvidia Geforce GTX 1050 2GB graphics card. There is the more expensive Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB card, but we think that the former is almost as good and is better value for money. You’ll be able to play all the latest titles in 1080p and many of them on Ultra settings.
3-Year Warranty on all Custom Built PCs
After all the essentials are nailed down, building your Gaming PC and giving it more of a personal touch should be next on your agenda. Peripherals are one way to do it and they double-up as accessories that make gaming fun and more comfortable.
Gaming is all about strategy so start with the essentials such as a customised keyboard, mouse and game controllers. Don’t forget that an audio system and/or headset is a must-have to make the gaming experience more interactive and real.
If you have money to spare, upgrading your monitor to a more specialised gaming version should be next on your list. Higher refresh rates and better quality panels can take gaming on your new budget gaming PC to a whole different level. Gaming Chairs are next on the list, adding much-needed comfort to gaming, whilst bringing style to your cave.
