Assembling a computer is easier than you think. With the help of a few smart trucks, your new computer will also become a top composition! Keep reading to know more.
Tip 1: Before you start compiling…
Think of the most intensive task you want to do with your computer. As soon as you know what this task is, you only have to put together a computer that is powerful enough for this one task. It can handle all other tasks without any problems. Processor intensive tasks are mainly: video and photo editing. Tasks that demand a lot from your video card are games and 3D drawing.
Tip 2: Don’t be influenced by your budget.
Many of our customers put together a computer that exactly fits their budget. In many cases, a computer that is less expensive also meets the customer’s wishes. Do you need a fast computer that is suitable for MineCraft, internet and watching movies. Then you really don’t have to put together a computer for 1000 euros.
Tip 3: take future expansions into account.
Expanding your computer is much cheaper than purchasing a completely new system. Most computers that you can assemble with us are easily expandable. Components that can be expanded are: Memory, video card and storage. In some cases it is also interesting to upgrade the processor (from an I3 to an I7 for example). If you want to expand a video card later, it is wise to take a slightly larger power supply and perhaps a housing that is suitable for long video cards.
Tip 4: Forget your preconceptions about AMD.
AMD is in many cases a better choice than Intel. Especially if your budget is under 1000 euros. AMD is a lot more attractively priced while the performance can be comparable to that of an Intel Processor. If you would like to add some extras to your computer (SSD, WiFi, more expensive housing), choose an AMD processor when putting together. Then you get a lot more performance for the same money.
Tip 5: Compile your Game computer yourself, but let us build it.
You really don’t have to do it for the money. On average, you save 100 euros if you build the computer yourself. If you then look at how much you have to do for it: Order from multiple shops (so warranty runs through multiple shops), build it yourself and install it yourself. Then you also have to deal with the quality part. Nothing about you! You are probably very technical and besides composing you can certainly also build the Game PC. However, you probably won’t assemble 10 in a day and the quality of your ‘build’ will therefore not be comparable to someone who assembles 10 in a day.
Tip 6: Start with the processor, memory and video card.
These three components are the most important when assembling. They determine for 99% the performance of your Game PC. The moment you have chosen these parts, the other choices (such as motherboard, storage, housing choice, etc.) will become a lot easier and clearer.
Tip 7: Pull a cable if you want to game!
If you want to buy a Game PC, make sure you have a LAN cable to your Game PC. Gaming on WiFi is worthless, especially if you play fast multiplayer (League of Legends) games. If you are forced to purchase WiFi with your computer. Then choose the best WiFi while composing!
Tip 8: Always do an SSD storage, provided there is a budget for it.
SSD stands for Solid State Drive. This storage drive is up to 10x faster than a traditional hard drive. It’s an investment, but once you’re used to working with an SSD, you won’t want to do without it. Your Windows (and other programs) will respond/function much faster as a result. This greatly increases your ease of use. Compile a game PC without an SSD? Know what you’re doing!
Tip 9: Don’t be afraid to ask for advice.
The world of hardware is big, extensive and often not very clear. If you have put together your own computer in the past, this does not mean that it will be just as easy in the future. Computer components are quickly followed up and as a result the information from 2 years ago is often very outdated. Take the SSD card for example; 3 to 4 years ago, hardly anyone had an SSD card in their computer. Nowadays an SSD is almost indispensable in a composite Game PC.
