Everything I know about building a PC
Well, you all know I have been making a PC. So I picked up a lot of things on the way and thought i would share them with you.
Note: I am not putting my Nvidia/AMD beliefs on you, only facts.
Lets start with the top 6.
1. Ask a lot of questions.
If you don't ask enough questions you will not have a good stable build. Logical right?
2. Don't settle for non-trusted brands for your PSU
Yes, they are cheap, but they might be known for being unstable. Meaning it might harm all your components. A.K.A. Fuck all your shit up.
3. Set a goal
What do you want, 3 monitors? Super high end frame rates? It all depends on you and what you want.
4. Set a budget
Pick a price range, but let me but it like this. $300-$400 Low end. $500-$700 Mid end. $800-$900 High end. $1000+ Ultra end
You can easily prove me wrong if you get the right things.
5.No PC is future prof!
No matter how powerful or how amazing your PC is it will not be future prof. NEVER!
6. Take everything with a little salt
When people tell you something they say it from there personal experience. I would recommend getting your info from product review sites because they have multiple people test at the time.
AMD or NVIDIA
This just leads down to what you want to do.
They use stream cores. They run better with games that DO NOT use PhysX. Lets say you wanna play Bioshock Infinite it will run better on an AMD but if you play Batman Arkham City, NVIDIA is the way to go.
But OpenCL will be completely be dominated my AMD.
Let me tell you about CUDA cores. They will be overall better when you use adobe programs like Photoshop. They are a lot more active on DirectX 11 and PhysX.
What is PhysX? It is used a lot for borderlands, it gives you more eye candy. I'm sure you know how to google.
If you want to know what games use PhysX go here http://www.geforce.com/hardware/technology/physx/games
As you can see GPU all leads up to what you want to do.
I will not go through the AMD vs Intel because I can't explain it. AMD is great, you get it for less money and still have epic performance. Now Intel is amazing, but no way I can afford it.
Well thank you for reading and i hope this helps people in the future. This is open for discussion, talk about it all you want. If you think something is wrong go ahead and correct me.
(BTW I think this would be a good sticky thread.)
