Want To Build Your Own Gaming Desktop? Make Sure You Get Familiar With These 10 Things First...

A PC is a gamer’s best friend (even a lover for some). Building your own rig makes your relationship with your PC more intimate and long-lasting. No gamer wants to be in love with something they don’t know or like.

For starters, here are some of the things you should consider in building a gaming PC:

10. The case of casing

Neat, spacious, and stackable. The Thermaltake Core X9 Snow Edition.

First things to consider are the size of the case itself and the components that will be stuffed into it. Size mainly depends on the form factor of the motherboard. Common sizes are mini, mid, or full tower cases. A full towers case has 2-3 slots more for hard drives compared to mid towers and has more room for ginormous graphics cards.

I’d recommend going for the mid and full towers. A larger casing is better, but not a necessity, if planning for future upgrades.

The coolest thing about casing is it can actually be made out of anything. Case modding continues to gain popularity worldwide, with modders sporting different designs and out-of-this-world ideas for their rigs. There are replicas of the Millennium Falcon, a Hummer, a wooden desk, and Optimus Prime; heck there’s even a toilet case mod. Just a little touch of imagination is needed to build your own unique computer case.
