It’s very important to choose components wisely when building your own computer, or modifying the one you already have,, like motherboard, CPU, RAM, hard drives, graphics card, that fit your particular need.
For example, if you are browsing the Internet, there is virtually zero need for you to purchase the latest, greatest, fastest CPU on the market.
There are 3 factors to deal with when buying and choosing computer components.
The first is find a component that fits your needs. The second is to stay within your budget. Finally, the third consideration is complexity.
Generally speaking, the more costly and the more configurable, the more potential issues you will have with installation, driver updates, and the like.
Only you will be able to determine your use of your computer; consequently, only you will be able to determine which components will satisfy your requirements.
Suffice it to say that most of us don’t need the top-of-the-line components.
- MSI K9N SLI-F Motherboard
- AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ 3.0GHz OEM
- 400GB SATA HD
- 2GB DDR2 PC6400 RAM
- ATX Mid-Tower Case
- 500 Watt Power Supply
Add a graphics card and you’re on your way to building a really nice system that will work for years to come and be capable of everything but hard-core gaming (and it would be competent at that, just not the best).
