Buying computers

If you are planning to buy a computer and intend to collect a case that you can shape according to your needs instead of ready-made systems, there are some elements you should pay attention to. Because the parts of a system being compatible with each other means maximum performance for your money. So what mistakes should we avoid?

What should we pay attention to when collecting computers?
Maybe you want to have your dream case as a design, maybe you are looking for a system that will run the games you want to experience at high performance. However, you should choose hardware parts according to your needs and make sure that they will work in harmony.

For example, you do not need to put 32 GB memory in a computer that you will only use for office and writing works. Because you will probably never use 24 GB of it. Similarly, you should determine your motherboard and processor choices according to your needs, so you can efficiently use your budget in other parts.

Since the processor will be the brain of our system, we will probably use a large part of our budget here after the graphics card. But many people turn to Intel i7 or Ryzen 7 series with the thought that I will use it for many years, so I should buy the best.

Contrary to what is misunderstood, we get the real performance from the GPU, not the CPU, in computer games. That’s why buying the i5 and R5 models will save you a lot of money without a significant drop in performance. Moreover, if you add the money that will remain in your pocket to the share of the graphics card, you can earn more than the performance loss that will arise from the processor.

For example, instead of buying a GTX 1660 GPU next to a 12th generation i7 or 5th generation Ryzen 7 processor, you can choose i5 and R5 and get RTX 2060 on the graphics card. But if you’re thinking of a business-oriented computer rather than a game, things will be the other way around. In other words, if you are going to do things that put a load on the CPU, such as rendering, then it would be much more logical to take the i7 and R7, even i9 and R9 processors and throttle the graphics card.

Among the indispensable parts when collecting the system, RAMs are also in the first place. If you are going to collect a case right now, it should have at least 8, preferably 16 GB of memory, especially if it is focused on gaming and business. Moreover, newly released games do not accept a value below 8 GB, even if you use the best processor and graphics card.

But another mistake made is that we feel compelled to fill all RAM slots. For example, our motherboard has 4 memory slots and only 1 or 2 of them are occupied. If your system is 16 GB and you do not plan to make an RTX 3090 SLI, 32 GB or 64 GB memory size will be unnecessary.

However, if you are going to buy 32 GB of memory to your system, it will be useful to do this in the form of 2 16 GB or 4 8 GB, not to fill a single slot, that is, to run it as multi-channel. Another important issue is the mHz and Cl value. These are the values ‚Äč‚Äčthat tell us the operating frequency and the delay rate in milliseconds.
