Building My First PC?

Question by James: Building My First PC?
I need to know if all of these specs will work well together. Is the power supply enough? Will everything work with the motherboard. What kind of CD optical drive should I get? Am I missing anything essential to make the PC work? Thanks.

u have everything except a mouse and keyboard, power supply is more than enough, sounds like your a gamer get a 1.5 TB to a 2 tb hard drive cuz i have already 500 gb of games and and all my software and stuff add up to 790 gb out of 973 gb which it is a tb hard drive. MAKE SURE THE MOTHERBOARD WILL SUPPORT 8 gb sticks, if u want 16 gbs of ram get 4x4gb sticks and get them 1666mhz it will run alot faster, thats alot of money also so u better know how to put together a computer before u mess with expensive components, always be grounded when putting the parts in the computer, all it take is a spark and blam u need a new video card or mobo or ram stick or cpu, also the mobo should come with a manual telling u how to put it together, contact me if u need any help. also sound likes ur building a badass comp, also i would personaly get a bluray drive and burner along with a dvd and cd drive and burner, cause blu ray is very popular,

    1 When you start to build your own PC you need to decide first what exactly you need. Storage and what you want to use the computer for are really important.

    2 In order to build your own PC, you will need the following items: ATX case, Motherboard, CPU (if not bundled with motherboard), Memory, Hard drive, Optical Drive (CD/DVD), Power supply (if not included with case). Now you have all these components and are probably wondering how can all these pieces fit together to make a working computer. First, open the side of the case, removed the motherboard from the protective packaging, be carefully handling it. Mount it to the case with the screws supplied with the case or motherboard. Do not screw too tight or you will crack the board. Next if the power supply did not come with the case, this is a good to to install the power supply. Next wire the case to the board (see case motherboard diagram). The Case wires are located near the front of the case and they control the power button, led and front usb ports (if available), and speakers. Next install the processor, make sure you apply enough heat sink between the processor and the board to prevent overheating. Attach the power cable on the processor to the motherboard. Next install memory. If you are only install once strip of memory, make sure you install in the slot labeled one. Next install the Hard drive into the hard drive bay. Connect the IDE (flat gray cable) or Sata (orange-red) to the hard drive and the motherboard. Install the Optical device connect a cabel (IDE or SATA) to the DVD/CD and the board. connect the power wire to the hard drive and optical device. If you purchased extra case fans, then you can install those and connect the power supply. Connect the power supply to the motherboard. Close the case and connect the power cord, keyboard, mouse and speakers (if purchased separately). Turn the unit on, open the optical drive and insert operating system CD, follow the prompts on the screen. When the operating system has finished installing, then you need to run the CD which came with the motherboard and then you have just built your very own PC. Enjoy!

    What type of computer is this ? Is it a gaming pc or a workstation ? If it isn’t meant for video editing or number crunching demands you can cut the budget and spend on a SSD to bring the computer to an optimal level of performance. There is not much difference from i5 to i7 in term of performance PER core. Unless you think it’s really really necessary for the 4 extra logical cores (hyper threading), you can leave it for some other just as important components.

    It’s also recommended to upgrade the memory speed to 1600MHz. It’s faster than 1333, but you do not need to go higher than 1600. It’s the sweet spot for both bandwidth and latency -wise.

    The case you pick has excellent cable management but the power supply isn’t modular. Look for TX750M power supply to accommodate it. It shouldn’t cost you a lot more.

    Meanwhile if you haven’t purchased all the components yet, take a look at this $ 800/$ 900 configuration, should run right on par with the chosen spec : http://www.custompcguide.net/800-900-dollars-pure-gaming-pc-build/
