I wanna build my own computer from scratch, and i have never done it before. However, i know what i want, but i dont know what i NEED. Can anyone tell me what parts are needed? I know that i want it to have at least 4 gig of ram and at the minimum a dual core processor, and a pretty damn good graphics card. thanks
Hard drive / Optical drive (CD/DVD)
Graphics card (if not using integrated graphics on CPU or some motherboards)
Case and Power Supply.
Monitor, Keyboard, Mouse and Windows operating system.
-> The usual advice; read the manual / install guide; look at the parts, read the manual again and if everything makes sense and looks right - then go ahead with the install.
While you're waiting for delivery you can download the online version of the motherboard manual and start getting familiar with it. Same for the other parts you want to order if they have install guides or manuals available.
