Building a high end PC


Hi James B. Payton,

   Well, in building a computer you have got to consider a lot of things like what it is for. In your case, you want a high-end pc so I assume it is for games, and other heavy applications. Anyway, first you have to do is choose your motherboard. After all, it is where you put all of your hardware. Just buy a motherboard that is compatible with the socket of your processor. Make sure it is sli and crossfire ready for multiple-gpu usage. Moving on, let us choose our processor.

Well, there are a lot of things to consider in a processor, but let’s just focus on the number of cores and its clock speed. Clock speed is the speed of how your computer operates, and the number of cores is basically, how many cores operate in your processor. Its greatest manufacturers are Intel and Amd. Although they are both good, I suggest you invest in Intel, but when you are on a budget then go for Amd. If you go for performance, then go with Intel, but if you go for affordability, then go with Amd. Either of the two, it will give you a good pc build. Now, we choose the RAM. In choosing your RAM, its frequency must be supported by your motherboard and you cpu. To maximize your RAM, make sure you have the maximum memory available, and the fastest frequency. With your GPU, we compare NVIDIA and ATI. It is pretty hard to choose which of the two since both of them are really good. If you are choosing Nvidia, then go with GeForce GTX series while if you are choosing ATI, then go with RADEON 7000 HD series.

With your hard disk, choose the popular brands like Seagate. Make sure it has faster RPM. Try investing in SSD too in your hard drive. Oh, don’t forget the case and your power supply. The case should also support your motherboard, and make sure it has proper ventilation in order to cool your computer. In your power supply, choose products that has 80+ seal; go with coolermaster, thermaltake, etc.. Also add fans to your CPU, and think about putting water coolers. It is pretty effective especially when you are thinking of overclocking. Anyway, there are really a lot of things you should consider in buying, but one thing is for sure buy only what you need, and what you can.

My proposal build:

Motherboard: Asus Rampage  IV Extreme

Processor: Core i7 3960X

GPU: Geforce GTX 680

RAM: 4 x 16GB RAM at 1600MHz
