Building a Gaming PC: 10 Things You Must Know
It looks simple yet it harbors beastly components. Vybe - the classic gaming pc as defined by MAINGEAR.

Now, down to the final question: How much do you need to build a gaming PC? A rough estimate would be at least $1000 USD. It’s enough to get a balanced build capable of handling games with mid to high settings turned on. You can, of course, shell out more money for better components for a more powerful PC.

Opt for better components that can still be used on the next upgrades. If the budget is tight, just go for the essentials; let go of aesthetics and some extra features you won’t regularly use.

There are many shops online that sell PC parts like Newegg, TigerDirect, Frys, Micro Center, NCIX, and Amazon and they ship almost anywhere. There are also custom PC builders like Digital Storm and Origin PC that let gamers customize their PC build without doing any dirty work. Just fill out the online form and pay, and they’ll do the work for you. You’ll just need to wait for them to deliver it right on your doorstep.

Buying the most expensive or high-end components does not necessarily make the best for building a gaming PC. Also remember that larger doesn’t necessarily mean better. It all comes down to a good mix of value and stability to get the optimum performance suited to one’s style and preference.
