Make A Gaming Computer

Adding larger hard drives, multi-core CPU processors and fiercely powered graphics cards are among the many ways to boost a computer's gaming abilities. Making a gaming computer is easier than ever with great prices and simple installations of hardware and software. Follow these steps.


1. Read online or local classifieds for people selling off their existing gaming systems. When someone upgrades to a new computer, they often put their old system on the market. These are wonderful starter systems from which to build.

2. Buy a computer case with a large power supply to power the entire system. Some retailers offer power supplies over 700 watts. Try to find an Energy Star-rated power supply to cut long-term energy costs.

3. Look for an inexpensive motherboard that handles higher-end processors. A 64-bit system is desirable for future-proofing the gaming computer. Choose an appropriate CPU to power the whole system. Each processor manufacturer has its pros and cons to review. Buy the best CPU you can afford.

4. Consider the best RAM for the gaming computer. Good RAM memory modules provide the system the speed to access and utilize data. The more RAM in the computer, the faster and smoother the gaming is.

5. Purchase a video card capable of high-intensity rendering capabilities. Some gamers even use a dual video card system to boost game play. Read over the computer's user manual to see if the system is SLI or dual video card capable.

6. Install a seriously high-end computer monitor. Any LCD monitor over 22-inches with a very low response rate and high contrast ratio is an excellent gaming computer monitor choice.
