If you want to build high performance gaming computer you have choose the right parts. First choose a processor like core 2 duo. You also can buy core i7 if the budget is high. You’ll want a good video card from ATI or NVidia to play new games swiftly with a high frame rates.

Pick a good and fast hard disk drive. Western Digital, Seagate and Samsung hard drives are the most widely-used ones. Pick a compatible motherboard; you can also buy a crossfire motherboard which has more than two pci express/AGP slots. You can choose 2GB/ 4GB/8GB ram depends on budget. At least, the case and the psu (power supply) are important. It is recommended more than 500watt power supply is perfect for a gaming computer.

Building a gaming computer yourself that is not that expensive sometimes is hard to achieve. That’s because of different hardware parts that vary in price. If you really want to have a very cheap gaming computer, you can go for the second hand units that are still in good condition. But if you want to buy and go for used computers you need, of course, to have a little knowledge about computers and its parts. You need it to examine how the computer works like if the monitor is still in good condition, you don’t hear any annoying noise from the CPU, and others.

For monitors, you will know that it’s still in good condition if the image displays fast after turning it on. If after pressing the power button of the monitor you notice the image on the screen brightens a little bit slower, this is a sign that it will wear out soon. Go choose on a different one. You should also check the specifications of the CPU. For a gaming computer, you need to have enough amount of RAM. 2 GB of RAM and above, I think, is enough to run an online game.

The memory of the video card is also a necessity. You need to have at least 128 MB of video RAM to accommodate most of the games nowadays. For the hard drive, older 80 GB hard drives are still good but might get easily full with today’s kind of computer games. Go for hard drives with 120 GB and higher capacity to have plenty of space for future game installations. For brand new units, normally it will cost around $500 and up depending on the specifications and, of course, the brand it carries. The part of the computer that makes it expensive is the processor. Buy a processor that’s fast enough and still has a fair price.
