This blog post is part of an ongoing series of posts, going in-depth on how to build a PC. Find links to each part here:
Part 2: Here
Part 3: Coming Soon!
Part 4: Coming Soon!
In the previous article in this series, I explained what every PC part was and what priority it has. Although with that information you might not get anywhere. Here’s what I mean, you only have part of the story. You have baselines although you don’t know if a product that costs a bit could be a lot better. That’s where resources kick in since technology is evolving by the month you have to keep that up with your build. Maybe one would use resources to find benchmark results (More on that in another post), or even if it’s worth it for your build.
You may be confused right now, and that’s ok! It’s part of the experience, all my job is to guide you through the experience. Remember these posts are meant to be for everyone, if you don’t understand anything just re-read the paragraph or search it up online. Even if I already dabbed into resources in the last post it’s definitely not enough. Here, I will explain in great detail what to expect from every resource I mention, and how to understand the information. Let’s get started!
I have already mentioned this before, yet I want to urge you how important it is to use websites like YouTube. In this social media platform, you will find content creators who are passionate about making tech videos. Some examples of YouTubers to check out with great content to guide you could be: JayzTwoCents, Linus Tech Tips, Tech Source. That’s just to name a few, there are many more that can help you out.
Why use YouTube? Simple, it’s videos. When you are just not feeling like reading, then why not watch? It’s the same content yet even more information as you see how it truly looks. This is best for after class or work is it’s also enjoyable. PC building is a task but it shouldn’t be annoying.
Good guides that helped me out:
There aren’t many guides here although this website can answer all your questions. If you stay in the right subreddits, this can be a powerful tool. You can ask questions in communities about any of your concerns because there’s a big chance they know the answer.
Some may think that it’s toxic although it’s not, like I said before if you stay in the right subreddits, this can be a powerful tool. Below I will link some subreddits I recommend to join and ask questions when you think of one (PC Related in this case). I personally used this resource to ask dozens of questions, and ask for feedback on my build list before and not after I bought my parts.
Google Advanced Search (Or any else similar to this)
If you don’t know what you’re looking for, then this is the best idea for you. It gets you up and running and gives you a place to look at. It will probably show the results of benchmarks and other information. Whenever you can’t find the answer to what you need, then this is your best bet.
Furthermore, with Google’s Advanced search functionality, it’s simple to find what you need. You can just type in the keywords you need, language, last updated and so much more! You can find a link to this right here: https://www.google.ca/advanced_search
Before going on a spending spree, taking the time of researching the best parts right now would definitely benefit you. Maybe not overkill like me and spend 4 months researching although even a month would be enough to choose the right parts. I actually recently successfully built my pc and do not regret a single bit for doing the research, asking for assistance, and actually motivating myself.
Anyways, I hope you enjoyed this short yet informative post to help you build your PC! Stay tuned for more ????
