Anyone know a lot about computers / building them? Looking at building a 2nd PC since the one I had died due to a fried motherboard.

 

Please halp.

For thee, my Lord, for thee.
Power hath descended forth from Thy hand
Our feet may swiftly carry out Thy commands.
So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
And teeming with souls shall it ever be.

1st go buy motherboard and all you need to know is what cpu socket it has, something like 1150 are new intel boards( not fml with amd)

then buy the cpu for the socket that matches 1150.(remember 2 core cpu 3.1gz is better than any 4 core each core under 3gz when it comes to gaming)

all other sockets are pretty much standard if its ATX size(atx is the size of the board when you are buying the case for your build for e.g those small business hp computer cases are SFF). there many ATX boards and they all go into ATX case.

pci for graphics card

memory

 

when buying memory then its prolly ddr3 not ddr2 unless its an older motherboard

cpu cooler also needs to match the 1150 socket.

 

power supply(pretty much anything works when it has atx in its model name)

What's your budget and what do you plan on doing? Do you plan on reusing any parts from your current PC?

 

This is a nice post to work off of. https://www.reddit.com/r/buildmeapc/comments/3r5a85/heres_some_builds_i_made_450_550_fallout_4/%C2%A0

 

I went way overboard with my current machine. I spent like $2000 including the monitor and peripherals..... to play a 15 year old game. ##

I got you friend.

 

First; tell me what you want out of the PC. Hardcore gaming? casual gaming? work related? media? Server?

 

What is your spending limit?

 

Tower size?

 

Do you normally run on a single monitor or do you use multiple?

 

answer those and ill send you a build
