Pc Parts, What I Did Wrong
I’m not an expert in building computers, my intention is just to share what I’ve learned building my own computers.
Today it is easier than ever to select the parts to assemble a computer, there are several sites on the internet that help in this task (see our page on BMC for links).
2 important aspects must be taken into account when building your computer:
Which parts to pick, they need to be compatible with each other.
Also, a real comparison of the parts to make a better choice.
Firstly, the compatibility of the parts is something that the website itself will help you with.
From the moment you decide between an Intel or AMD processor, for example, it will already show the motherboards for one or the other.
Usually, the websites will tell you pretty much everything you need to know, but there are some exceptions.
I bought a cooler from “Cooler Master”, (which looks like a great part) but I couldn’t use it, because it didn’t attach to my motherboard.
When I set up this configuration on the website, I don’t remember seeing anything about this incompatibility, so it’s important to pay attention to it and find out if the cooler is compatible with that motherboard.
The CPU I bought came with a cooler, apparently most CPUs these days come with a cooler. Much less powerful than Cooler Master’s, but it’s working fine so far.
The second is a website where you can find the tests that are done with each part to find out what its capacity is for performing certain tasks.
As I had set a tight budget for building this computer, I already knew I wouldn’t buy a good video card.
But researching this site, I would have avoided the mistake of having bought a video card that offers me a lower performance than my notebook.
Building your computer may be easier than you think, but you still need to take some precautions.
