How to Build a PC: All the Necessary Components

Building a PC is one of the geek rites of passage. Because, unfortunately, every avid computer user has run into an issue that could have been avoided if they’d built the computer themselves. Today, we’ll cover all the standard components slotted into your PC, including what they do and how to install them.

Building a PC: Complete Explanation

As the name implies, building a PC requires the user to purchase standalone computer parts and slot them into a fully functional PC. The term used to describe PCs constructed by anyone other than the intended user is a “pre-built” PC.

Homebuilt PC: Exact Definition

A homebuilt personal computer, or custom-built personal computer, is purchased as parts. These are generally commercially available and found at standard computer parts retailers.

Compatibility Between PC Parts

Building a PC is relatively simple unless you’re making a laptop. Desktop PC parts are highly standardized and are generally interchangeable. Furthermore, tools such as PC Part Picker, Newegg’s Custom PC Builder, and many other options allow you to quickly check the compatibility between various parts.
