    Building A Gaming Computer

    What are all the parts I need to build a computer? (dont need a monitor, mouse, speakers, and keyboard)

    And for every part, what is the best one out now?

    Cool
    Motherboard; Newegg.com - ASUS Z8NA-D6C Dual LGA 1366 Intel 5500 ATX Dual Intel Xeon 5500 and 5600 Series Server/Workstation Motherboard ( Not the best one just thought that two CPU's are cool. )

    Graphics Card; You have to pick really

    All of the other stuff is completely your choice like case, power supply, if you want a liquid cooled computer.

    I would like to figure out all the pieces I need, as I have never built one before. For example, someone told me I need some disk thingy, which hardly anyone ever talks about.

    You can walk into tech stores and basically just ask them and they can supply you the details you need.

    • RAM
    • Processor
    • Motherboard
    • Case
    • Power supply
    • Hard drive
    • Video card
    • CD drive


    Those are pretty much all you need and of course a Operating System

    CPU:
    Motherboard:
    RAM:
    Graphics Card:
    Power Supply:
    Hard Disk Drives / Solid State Drives:
    Cooling System / Fans:

    Those are your barebones basics that you need to build a gaming PC (or any PC for that matter).

    RAM
    Processor/CPU
    Motherboard
    Case
    Power supply
    Hard drive
    Video card
    CD drive
    Optional: DVDburner/CD/ETC (Pretty damn useless unless you want to watch your DVD's or burn CD/DVD's.

    These are all you need. Really, putting it together is really simple. My first time I was pretty nervous but it only took like 30~45 minutes.

    If anything, look up guides or as MPGH. h4h4.

    Take your case and put in your PSU. Take your MOBO(you can do this after you have your motherboard screwed in your case if you want) and put in ram, cpu, cpu cooler(or stock cooler)+apply thermal paste. Now you put in your standoffs align your motherboard with the standoffs and then screw in motherboard via standoffs.
    You can now put in your GPU, HDD/SSD. Put in your extra fans and then connect/wire your shit which is relatively easy especially if you have a modular PSU. You connect your CPU/MOBO, GPU and HDD/SDD + Fans and connecting these are rather simple. Making it neat is a bit difficult. c; for me at least.

    Oh and make sure that your parts are compatible with eachother and you don't get a weaksauce CPU and a really powerful GPU and vice versa(etc) you know what I mean.

    The first thing you need to do, is get drunk.

    Best way for finding components for me is using Amazon.

    On the left sidebar, select Electronics & Computers, then Computer Components.

    Has a list on the left of all the components for a PC, compulsory ones being your RAM, Processor, Harddrive, Case & Disk drive + power supply.

    Everything else is a addon (graphics etc).
