Building a PC System

Do I discuss it here, in Hardware, or in Gaming? Didn't want to start the post in the wrong place and get moved

Here or in hardware is probably OK.

What do you need to know?

If you are concerned with getting the correct parts, the following would help;

Intended purposes for the PC


Parts not needed (carried over from an existing PC)

Preferred vendor in your country.

Thanks Igna,

I am going to start my post in the Hardware category since to me it makes more sense. To me the majority will be hardware items, motherboards, graphic cards, cases (new and existing), hard drives, SSD's, etc.... The reason I asked is it is going to be a gaming machine, and I didn't know if their was a specfic "Build A PC" area somewhere I didn't see!

Hopefully I'll see your comments and help about the system I want to build in the Hardware forum!

Thanks again!

When you finally decide it's time for a new computer, what does that mean? Do you replace a part at time? Do you perhaps replace a suite of parts (motherboard, RAM, CPU)? Are you the guy who replaces everything at once? I would like to be that last guy (build entirely new system), but I'm more...

Building New System
Hey guys :) I'm thinking of "reviving" an old Windows XP pc I have. So, I'm just curious - I'm on a TIGHT budget, VERY TIGHT at that! I was wondering, what's a budget CPU that's fair in performance? The same for a GPU and HDD (has to be IDE though.) I have experience in building PC's, so don't...

Building Your Own System
Building my own system is something I have wanted to do. Two years ago I had decided that I was building one when I retired to part-time work. As luck would have it about four months before that happened my system died and due to having to have one rather quickly I was forced to have one made...
