Now it’s the time to choose the best components for you. Before buying a processor you need to choose the platform like Intel or AMD. To choose what is the best for you let’s check out this..

Processor : Intel based or AMD ? To choose one you need to think of….

 

Value:

If you are going to build your custom built PC value for money then definitely its AMD gaming build. AMD’s Processors are generally cheaper the then Intel based processor of same class. Processors from AMD like Sempron, Athlon, A-series dual core processors just starts at $17 as Intel’s dual core processors like G 1280 starts at $50. Intel is always little expensive in comparison to AMD, as  you go but Intel provides extra bit of power then AMD.

 

Nowadays new generation processors like AMD Ryzen7 1700 is more affordable than Intel’s Core i7 770k, also performance is pretty much same. therefore gamer likes customized gaming computers with Ryzen or i3 gaming computer.  

 

Gaming performance:

it is a head to head competition, AMD offers many processors as APUs. That means combination of Graphic chip within the processor in a single chip. It provides value for money , Intel also provides integrated graphics but not as efficient as AMD’s Radeon in low level gaming.

The main cons of AMD is it is not as fast as Intel, that may give you a leggy experience in high end gaming. The difference between AMD and Intel with a high end graphics card can be noticed 30 to 40 FPS. In term of speed  Intel is the father of AMD.

Overclocking in customized gaming computer :

Generally we can measure a processor by its processing speed (like 3 GHz, 3.5 GHz.) etc.Now some processor can be overclocked to boost the speed of a CPU. Both Intel and AMD provides overclocking but AMD is more overclocking friendly.

 

Sum up :

Both AMD and Intel is good for gaming. New generation AMD like Ryzen and Corei7 of Intel can be comparable. If you want to expend some extra then you may go for Intel, it will provide a extra bit of FPS.

Core i7-6850KRyzen 7 1800X
Intel Core i3-7100Ryzen 7 1700X
Intel Core i5-7500Ryzen 7 1700
Intel Core i5-7600KRyzen 5 1600X
Intel Core i7-7700KRyzen 5 1500X
Intel Pentium G4560Ryzen 5 1400

Choose from above one and now it’s time to buy a motherboard for the processor. So here is the list of best motherboards for custom gaming computer.

 

Motherboard : we often overlook motherboard, it’s also an essential part of a custom built PC. After deciding the processor based on AMD or Intel accordingly you need to buy a motherboard w matching the socket of your processor.

What is storage of a gaming PC?

 

Storage means the device where we store data, Simply it is a disk drive. We generally use storage devices like Internal Hard Disk (HDD), SSD, M.2 Etc.

 

HDD : As per Wikipedia   “A hard disk drive (HDD), hard disk, hard drive or fixed disk is a data storage device that uses magnetic storage to store and retrieve digital information using one or more rigid rapidly rotating disks (platters) coated with magnetic material. The platters are paired with magnetic heads, usually arranged on a moving actuator arm, which read and write data to the platter surfaces. Data is accessed in a random-access manner, meaning that individual blocks of data can be stored or retrieved in any order and not only sequentially. HDDs are a type of non-volatile storage, retaining stored data even when powered off”

If budget allows i would like to recommend two hard drives, SSD/M.2 + traditional HDD. Because SSD And M.2 gives more performance and traditional HDD offer more storage.
