Building your own desktop can be daunting at first. There are so many things to consider, it can be a little overwhelming without an idea of what to look for. Here are a couple of tips to make the job easier:

1. Research, research, research.

Figure out what you want and need in your PC. Are you prioritizing performance speed over graphics, or would you want something that can handle graphics-intensive gaming for that extra sense of immersion? Look at the specs you need to run the games you play and make a short list based on that. You don’t need the most state-of-the-art NVIDIA graphics card or an Intel i7 processor to make sure you have the components you need to make a quality computer on the cheap. Be sure to set a budget based on what you can and want to realistically pay and don’t go over it.

2. Don’t skimp on the important things.

When you build a rig for the first time, it can be easy to overlook things like the placement of cords or the number of fans you have, so check and double-check! Make sure you always have what you need to ensure that not only are your desktop’s specs awesome, but it would run well even if they weren’t. Keep things neat with a few well-placed zip ties and don’t forget to regularly clean your parts with some canned air to keep them shipshape.

3. Keep an eye out for sales.

Sites like TigetDirect, Newegg, Amazon, and other retailers that sell computer parts will often have really killer sales around holidays, so be sure to keep checking back on the items you want. You may be able to net a better hard drive that was cheaper on sale than the one you wanted was at full price!

Hopefully these tips provide a more tangible starting point for building a cheap gaming desktop rig. Remember: you don’t have to break the bank to have a great computer, and anything you put it in it now can always be upgraded later.
