How to choose hardware for gaming PC

Have you thought about what kind of hardware is suitable for your gaming pc? If not, then let’s talk this post. I am going to show you a few helpful methods and ways to choose the best one for your needs! So without further ado I will go on talking about some things like RAM, CPU, CPU Speed, Hard Disk Space, motherboard memory and many more.


Let’s start with RAM and how it changes the performance of PC as well as its overall speed. The main reason for choosing the right RAM is just because it decides the processing power of the machine so no other factor is considered, like GPU or CPU. Most people think about the size of RAM, but remember that you are looking for good quality RAM. You can buy any type of Ram or memory chips. Remember that both types of ram can be used in different configurations also. It depends upon how much hard work you want your computer to do and if the money you are looking for for the product is not there, then your computer will crash all day long. Now let’s take a look at CPU:


As we all know computers have a chip inside them. These chips are called microchips, but they are much smaller than humans and they contain a lot of transistors and other components which can help your system to function better along with lots of other applications. This process is called computing.


Nowadays, the use of advanced technology has caused us very serious issues. We already have 3rd party software on our devices. And these companies have made their products to use specific software. The software they use is provided by the manufacturers from a software company who provide developers with ready-made libraries and services. They can easily adapt to any kind of device. But this software gives users the ability to modify it and create customizations to it.


So, when you are buying a new laptop or desktop to run in your particular operating system or application suite, don’t forget about selecting an anti-malware program that can protect your device from viruses in Internet or malware etc. Nowadays we can find numerous Anti Programming Technologies (APTs) available in market which helps to detect any hidden code or virus in your OS or application and eliminate unwanted programs that may corrupt or damage your personal information or data such as credit card details or social security number etc.


Here are some important points which should be kept in mind while looking for the perfect one for your purposes:


1. Processor Size & Power consumption:

As we all know processors are the brains in your computer as it provides it enough power to operate your devices properly without crashing out. Processors are categorized as high end or low end and this depends upon the kind of usage you will be using the processor. High end processors can run most of the applications with ease, while low end ones can only handle basic and simple computer operations etc.


2. Graphics card:

The graphics card determines how powerful a computer is. It controls the visuals that are shown on your screen. A higher graphics cards can make your computer look pretty nice to look. And, with a higher Graphics Card, you can get a superior experience in games. An NVIDIA GeForce 3060 Ti is the best processor for gaming and has a high end graphics card that can render stunning visuals and give you a smooth gaming experience. But if you need something more modest so consider a GTX 960 of Google. Or it could be a AMD Radeon RX 5500 and there are thousands of combinations available today that you can find with this. When you buy a prebuilt machine you have all the options you need.


3. Storage Type:

Storage is a very crucial part of the computer as it decides the amount of storage you have. With a faster disk space you can save large amounts of data and then the faster the disk, the faster you can play your games.


4. Memory:

This is another important aspect of any Computer and it helps you in controlling the speed, how quickly your machine works and the stability of the program. There are two types of memory available in laptops: Random Access Memory (RAM) – SDRAM, and Dynamic Random Access Memory (DRAM) – NDRAM. By using DRAM you can directly access data between the core and memory and it cannot be changed or modified any further. Whereas RAM can read and write information anywhere within your system. Nowadays, you can find loads of different kinds of memory chips: Intel® Core™ i9-10180HK, Nvidia RTX 1060Ti, Samsung 16GB DDR5 DDR4, MOS memory, Corsair Vengeance 32GB DIMM, Toshiba 4GB DDR3, ROG Zephyrus 8 GB LPDDR5 memory, Fisheye 32GB PCI Express SSD, Blue SKY memory. We can also find various memory sticks with different capacities. In case of lower priced models of RAM, you will face problems because they won’t support multiple threads and can only support up to 2GB of data. On the other hand, you may try Micro SD/SDHC if you have less budget to pay a premium for a drive and you simply need fast memory. So whatever you think about it, you have to go for the proper variant of memory chips if you are looking for a speedy machine.


5. Backplane:

What’s a backplane? It is basically a circuit board that acts as both the primary platform for storage transfer and display for external monitors. This is also used for connecting the central processing unit (CPU) too. Some of the major players like Macbook, Lenovo etc., are using this concept to connect their computers to a monitor or a keyboard connected to a USB port. That way, you can use the MacBook or even a notebook as well as any other Macs around you. So if you are a gamer and want your computer to run smoothly then using a backplane is absolutely great. Though there are times when we face challenges in getting backplane hardware and you can’t get a huge discount. Just remember that you cannot buy this kind of hardware unless you want to build your own computer.


6. RAM:

As we discussed earlier, RAM is the brain of the computer. Without it, you can’t function efficiently. So it is mandatory that you keep in mind while selecting a laptop, whether a regular laptop or not, so you don’t forget about RAM. Yes, it really matters. You can use 1GB RAM instead of 12GB RAM, but make sure that you are getting good quality and consistent performance from your computer and avoid bad experiences. Remember that you need to check frequently to avoid random crashes and frequent interruptions. Now that you have selected the right RAM for your computer, it’s time to figure out what you are going to install.


7. Cooling System:

To make your laptop functional and stable we must install cooling system. Yes, the best way is to purchase a tower fan along with a heat sink or to add your own heatsink. While installing a tower fan it is highly recommended to place a small rubber mat on top of the fan. As the fan moves, it allows air and cool air to flow over your computer and increases the temperature if your computer is working improperly. Another popular method is to use a thermal pad and you can attach your computer’s CPU inside or outside its package if you want to install a discrete GPU. Once done installation it is very important to change anything it might be damaged, especially those parts of motherboard like IC or PCBs. Also, it is always advisable to keep in mind that your memory is going to burn a hole into your motherboard, so its better to ensure that it is not over-clogged with the data. All these steps are very easy to follow, but make sure you select a correct motherboard. Here are some tips on motherboard:


8. Motherboard Module Form Factor:

Motherboards of computer use either single die form factor or dual die form factor. Single die form factors have a flat surface and this allows the motherboard to be mounted with a vertical position. As you can see here, since it is flat, you can mount it with a screw or hold it from below if you are doing that with tower fans. However, these are expensive and requires the special tool for attaching a lens mount system. Dual die form factors have a base at the bottom and a horizontal center. As we all know, there are three sides of these motherboards which are normally the motherboard, the substrate and the housing for graphics. The motherboard comes in three color variants namely red, green and blue, and each one looks distinct for its own purpose. So make sure that you pick a motherboard that fits your needs and doesn’t break it for others.


9. Interconnect Port Capacity:

You can choose to replace the motherboard with any additional modules like flash drive, Ethernet cables, USB ports among others. Before purchasing a motherboard remember that the motherboard can only accommodate certain number of slots between the chips. So to increase the available slots you have to purchase another one. Note that interconnect ports can vary in capacity depending upon the motherboard. So, make sure that you select the motherboard according to its requirement. Here we can find several connector brands: Dell, HP, Gigabyte, Yamaha, JBL, Seagate etc.


10. PSU Ports:

What is a PSU? Yes, it is the battery supply. It is one of the essential component of your computer as it controls the electrical current that is generated during your computations so as to provide a steady current of power to your computer. Different kinds of PSUs come with different capacities of batteries, but they all need some sort of an active load to increase the power to the computer. So, make sure you select a PSU with sufficient output.


11. Input Voltage Range:

At maximum input voltage for an SMPS with a 120-V input, the off-state voltage across the switching device can be as high as 750 V. During the on state, the voltage across the same terminals can range from a few millivolts to about one volt.
