When your PC can’t meet the demands of your game, it might be time to build your own gaming computer. If you’re interested in taking your game to an entirely new level of customization, here’s a gaming PC build guide to give you the instructions you need to create a killer rig.
Performance and costs are directly related
The most important consideration to make is the level of performance you expect to get out of the gaming computer you’re about to build. Creating a powerful machine on a tight budget is completely practical – you don’t need to pay a premium to get solid gaming performance. However, if you are looking to push the threshold of gaming performance with cutting-edge hardware and accessories, it will cost more. No matter which route you take, you’ll need to build your gaming PC from the inside out.
Focus on the hardware of your build
Hardware is the engine of your gaming rig. It accounts for almost all the performance available– that includes the speed, responsiveness, frame rates, and running multiple apps at one time (for example, gaming while recording your gameplay on video) – other accessories and software can help and are still important, but they’re complementary and their impact is dictated by the capabilities of the hardware.
