Now that I knew I was going to make a gaming computer needed to know what I wanted it to have. I came to the conclusion that I needed a GPU(Graphics Processing Unit or Graphics Card) to suit the needs of next-generation video games. In addition to that I also had to have a Central Processing Unit (commonly referred to as a processor or CPU). Since it needed to be on my desk I realized it also needed to be generally small for a computer. Other necessary components included RAM (Random Access Memory), a power supply, a hard drive or a SSD(Solid State Drive). Since I knew most of these components revolved around the GPU it was necessary to find which graphics card would work with my plans.
Once I got all the parts after long days of waiting I was ready to start assembling. My Father helped me with the assembly.
- First I secured the motherboard in the case.
- Next we installed the processor and the fan that came with it.
- After we stuck in the RAM into one of the slots on the motherboard.
- Then I plugged the ports on the case into the motherboard,
- Pushed in my GPU,
- Stuck my hard drive onto the case,
- Connected the SATA cables from the Hard Drive to the motherboard
- Put in PSU(Power Supply) into my case,
- and plugged in all the cables to the parts that needed power.
I strongly suggest you try doing it too.
