The so-called gaming PCs are very normal computers that differ from office computers or workstations for the choice of internal components, projected to be better especially with regard to graphics processing. Be careful though! An unstable computer, and too determined towards the graphics part, may not deliver the performance you expect. If you’re going to be assembling your own gaming PC and choosing components, PC Power Up will guide you to choose the best possible components.


Intel processors are widely known for their excellent single-core performance, which means that they have always been considered the best gaming processors. While this is true, it is not a factor that should influence your buying decision for games, because Intel’s processors are heavily criticized for their prices.

AMD processors are known for their multi-core performance and affordability, which makes them excellent for multitasking and heavy loads. With recent developments, the performance of AMD single-core processors has also improved, making it a serious competitor in the processor market and closing the gap with Intel.


So you have chosen a processor. Now you need a compatible motherboard. When looking at motherboards, the main difference between low end cards and high end cards is usually over-clocking capabilities and high end features. Common motherboard sizes for a gaming PC are typically ATX, MATX, or ITX.

USB ports, for example, usually don’t change in size, but the smaller the size (ITX being the smallest, ATX the largest), the fewer RAM and PCIe slots there are. Keep in mind that Mini-ITX sized motherboards tend to be more expensive, so if you have a specific budget you should aim for ATX or MATX sizes, which are suitable for most mid-tower PC cases.

The motherboard doesn’t have to be fancy, it just needs to be reliable, and so it’s important to buy from a reputable manufacturer. ASUS, ASRock, Gigabyte, and MSI are the choices we recommend.


The graphics card, or GPU, is the most important component of any gaming PC and it’s usually the most expensive on any build list. To better understand how a GPU works, imagine playing a multiplayer shooter. During the game, the CPU is responsible for tracking physical elements, such as players and objects and their position on the map. The GPU, on the other hand, takes this information and renders the graphics you see, at the resolution and settings you set.

The GPU is arguably the most important component of a gaming PC, but it still needs the CPU to function. If the CPU does not process what is happening in the game fast enough, the game will take a long time and the graphics will be poor.


We used to store everything from apps and Word files to games on our hard drives, but since the introduction of SSD technology everything has changed. An SSD, or semi-con hard drive drivers, is a storage device with no moving parts and the information is stored in microchips, which makes the SSD much faster.

The ideal scenario would be a combined SSD and HDD hard drive storage solution, if you can afford it with your budget.
