Before building or buying a PC, you need to make sure that you have a solid understanding of your needs in relation to what you can actually afford.

Choosing your budgets -> Understanding Your Needs -> Choosing Your Parts

Components You’re Going to Need.

  • CPU/Processors    
  • Motherboard      
  • GPU/Graphics card      
  • Memory/RAM      
  • Storage (SSD and/or HDD)     
  • PSU     
  • Case
  • CPU Cooler (Optional)

Common Misconceptions.

  • Processor is arguably, the most discussed issue. If you are talking about high end processors, a person with the least knowledge in PC would go straight and say “PC i7 la POWER!” -Which is, well, not totally wrong. But still, wrong.   
  • Common misconception of Graphics Card: “Higher Graphic Memory = More Powerful” - This is not the case with :- GTX1050Ti 4GB vs GTX 1060 3GB & GTX1070 8GB vs GTX1660Ti 6GB & RTX2060 6GB

Q: “So, should I spend more on the Processor or Graphics Card?”

A: Better processor does not always mean superior gaming performance. If possible, balance your hardware

to prevent a performance bottleneck.

Below, we have two different setups for comparison.

  • The i5 rig is paired with RTX 2070 graphics card     
  • The i7 is paired with the slightly inferior RTX 2060 graphics card.
  • Everything else are kept the same. See the specs below.

Q: “But wait, why does the graphics card take up so much $$$ in a gaming rig?”

  • Most gaming rigs have a graphics card that takes 30-40% of the total rig cost. In some case, it costs more than 50% of the total build cost.
  • This is due to most of applications that utilize graphics cards are video games.
  • Gaming rigs are often paired with high-end graphics card or with a balanced hardware setup to prevent performance bottleneck.
  • Powerful graphics card = Higher FPS @ Higher Settings (Maxed Out)

*Results shown below proved how processors do not have a significant impact on gaming performance compared to graphics card.

In short,

How Do You Choose Each of the Parts?

  • You need to make sure that all the parts are compatible with one another.
  • You may use our PC Builder here to start building your PC and submit to us.
  • You may also contact us on the official Facebook page for our professional consultancy services.
