In this article, I am going to quickly walk you through the process of assembling a relatively basic computer system.
Here’s a quick checklist of what to remember when purchasing computer parts:
– How many watts does your power supply (PSU) need to have as a minimum? Use a Power Supply Calculator.
– When choosing a case, make sure it isn’t too small for your configuration. For example, if you’re building a system with 2x GTX285’s in SLI and five hard drives, you might want to avoid a mid-size tower and go for a full otherwise you’ll be really cramped in there with hardly any room to work and risk the likely possibility of overheating your system.
