Building your own gaming computer may seem on the surface as a difficult and time-consuming task. The truth however is that building a PC for gaming is actually fairly simple, fun and straight forward. Yes it will take some time and research, but it is well worth the investment considering how much money we’ll save. Today’s PC games are both exciting and gorgeous, but they also require a ton of resources from your computer. This means your computer has to be a beast, and will at least take some amount of money to invest to ensure your system runs smoothly. But setting up a gaming computer today is nothing like it was 30 years ago. Back then, PC building’s biggest problem was compatibility of components. You would buy a sound card (8 or 16 bit) and a video card (EGA was as good as it got) then hope that it would all fit and work with your motherboard. There was no website to visit back then for support. They gave you disks with a manual and from there you just had to figure it out. 30 years later, it’s all plug and play. To start, if you have a problem, there’s a website you can look up and they usually have the answer there.
