If you’re looking to build your own PC, or upgrade your current one, it’s vital that you choose the correct components to suit your requirements.

Getting the right PC processor can appear confusing at first with so many options from big name manufacturers such as Intel and ASUS. If you’re upgrading then it’s vital to ensure that your new processor is compatible with your machine, and that you install it carefully, making sure you line up the pins precisely. If you’re building or upgrading for gaming then a specific gaming processor could be the ideal choice.

When it comes to graphic cards, the first port of call is to ensure that the outputs on offer match the outputs you’ll need. The majority of graphic cards will all come with an HDMI and DVI output, but not all will come with a VGA or a Display Port. In terms of clock speed, the higher the speed the faster your graphics card will be if the measured against the same core speed (MHz or GHz).

If you’re upgrading to make your PC more powerful then you may need to consider investing in a new power unit to cope with the added load, as a PC which is working harder than before could need a greater cooling capability. Take a look at our power supplies, which can be as crucial to your build or upgrade as the key components themselves.
