How to Build a High-End Gaming PC

We are writing this guide for people who want to build their gaming PC from scratch. Sometimes it's nice just to make something with your hands, and this process can get done much quicker than waiting around in line at Best Buy or picking out parts on Amazon - all while learning how everything works inside an actual computer (so no more guesswork).

The challenge is that there are so many different components, and understanding where each one goes can be daunting. But don't worry, we’re here to help! The tricky part is that we may not tell you how to build your PC since we are unaware of what components you may use. But we will do the next best thing and give you recommendations for each component and explain its function so that you can make informed decisions.

Regardless of what kind of computer you're building, the components will be similar. Every PC needs a motherboard, central processing unit (CPU), storage memory, monitor, and a power supply. You can either go for one with the best graphics card or not- if you're mostly using this computer for word processing at home, then it's probably not necessary, though! Graphic cards come in handy for PCs meant to handle image/video processing or intensive gaming.

Here are the recommended options you can choose from to create the high-end gaming PC you desire.

  • Motherboard: The best options available in the market for the motherboard are the LGA1200 from Intel and the AM4 by AMD. The most common size ATX or full size ought to be great.
  • Hardware: Hardware from either ASUS or MSI is recommended depending on the motherboard you have chosen. Notable hardware options include ASUS ROG Strix B450-F for an AM4 motherboard and ASUS ROG Maximus Hero for LGA 1200 motherboard.
  • Processor: Gaming is a very demanding task, so only the top-of-the-line processors can handle the load. Ryzen 9 5950X 16-core 3.4 GHz and Intel Core i9-11900K 8-Core 3.5 GHz are among the best processors gamers can get their hands on.
  • GPU: You’ll need a graphics processing unit (also called GPU), a specialized processor that's designed and optimized for handling visual data like the graphics in video game worlds. ASUS, MSI, and Radeon provide multiple options to choose from. 
  • Storage: A 1TB SSD hard drive from Samsung or Corsair should be more than enough for your storage needs.
  • RAM: For the RAM options, we like to choose from the Corsair Vengeance LPX 16-GB 288-Pin RAM, the G.Skill Ripjaws V Series 32-GB 288-Pin RAM, and the 

Corsair Dominator Platinum 64-GB 288-Pin RAM depending on your needs and requirements.

  • Power Supply: Depending on your power requirements, you can choose from EVGA SuperNOVA 750 Watt, the NZXT E850 850-Watt, and the EVGA SuperNOVA 1,000-Watt power supplies.

You can easily look for online tutorials on how to combine all these components to create your gaming PC.
