Assembling a computer is a great way to build a customized PC and that will give you some freedom to buy whatever you need to makes your computer faster and better according to your use.
If you are wondering about to build a computer by assembling it by yourself then I’m definitely gonna help you by this tutorial and also save you some bucks for all that assembling charges taken by the computer shop.
Actually, it’s such an easy task to do, you’ll just have to connect some of the plugs, tighten some screws and that’s it.
Before you’re going to assemble a computer, you’ll have to make sure that you have all the parts available what we require to build a computer.
Picking up parts for your computer –
You should know what you are going to build:
- Processor – Deciding a processor is the first thing what we need to do whenever we’re picking parts for our brand new computer because it’s a brain of your computer and your system’s performance is fully depend on that. As I say Processor is fully responsible for your system’s speed and the concept what we use when buying a processor is “More Heavily You Buy = More Performance You Got”. If you are going to build a decent PC then just buy an i3 processor and that will work for you.
Tip – Buy a process which comes under in your budget.
- Motherboard – Motherboard is the Second picked what we make after choosing a decent processor for our computer. The motherboard is the main board where all your hardware parts are going to be connected and buying a motherboard is all depending on processor’s socket.
Every processor has their own socket Number like LGA775, LGA1155, LGA1556 etc. and you can check that on your processor’s specification. So, you’ll have to make sure about that does your processor is supportable or not before buying anything.
Tip – Also check for Processor’s Model No. compatibility on your motherboard’s specification page.
- Ram – RAM is Random Access Memory and it’s a fast version of a typical hard drive, and it’s used to store temporary information and data currently in use by your system (operating system & software’s process). The more RAM you have the better multitasking your machine will perform. You can think of RAM as tellers in a bank processing customers’ needs in real time. The more tellers you have (RAM), the faster the processing. Buying a RAM what’s your motherboard supports, normally all new motherboard comes with DDR4 ram support.
Tip – Check your motherboard’s ram compatible.
Recommend – 4 GB Minimum
- Hard Drive – Hard drive is the main storage device of your computer which stores all of your personal and operating system data in its storage space. Buying a hard disk is totally depending upon your use.
Tip – I’ll suggest you to buy an SATA 3.0 HDD or maybe an SSD, because it can make a huge effect on your computer’s Data Reading & Writing performance.
Recommend – 500 GB Minimum
- Computer Case – Pick the Right Size and Shape, a case’s size doesn’t need to be explained. Bigger cases can hold more optical drive & hard drives and buying a decent size case can give you some room for bigger video cards and also make things easy to fit’s in.
- Power supply (SMPS) – SMPS is the powerhouse of your computer which supplies electricity to all the sections who needs. We are selecting PSU by its power supply capacities like 500 WATT or 800 WATT PSU, to know how much power does our computer’s needs you can use the link below and that will clarify how much power did you need for your computer by filling the system configuration on PSU Calculator.

- Graphics card (optional) – If you’re going to build a Gaming PC then it does need a graphics card in order to play the games what you wanted to play on your new computer. Graphics card are optional you don’t need it if you want a simple decent computer but if you wanna to play some high-end games on it, then select a good and compatible video card for your computer is must. Selecting a graphic card isn’t that simple that’s why I have another tutorial linked below to make selection easy for you.
So, Let’s Get Start to Building a Computer
Step 1: Collecting parts
First, you have to buy these parts because it’s all are necessary to build the computer
1. Processor 2. Motherboard 3. Ram 4. Hard drive 5. Computer case 6. Power supply (SMPS) 7. Optical Drive (DVD-RW and SATA capable) 8. SATA Cables (Comes with the new motherboard) 9. Processor Fan (Comes with a new processor) 10. Case Fan 11. Assortment of case and drive screws
Caution: Double check the product specifications of all items before you’ve made some purchase.
Kits are supposed to contain compatible parts:
Step 2: Gather Tools and Supplies
Gather the tools you will need for this project:
- Screwdriver (for slotted and Phillips head screws)
