This time I want to share tips for those of you who want to build a PC, whether it’s a PC for gaming or rendering. Before you start assembling a PC or before you buy a PC component you must first consider a few things that I will mention below. So after you have finished assembling and using a PC, it is hoped that you will not regret the installation of your PC.
So before you start assembling a PC, all you have to think about is, what PC / computer do you want? Is it for full gaming? Or full editing / rendering? Or for both gaming and editing? Or maybe just for light work like multimedia, browsing, streaming, office? Because assembling a PC is also tailored to your needs. Do not just as long as the raft or the purchase of expensive expensive PC components is only used for browsing and multimedia. Loss and certainly redundant.
Okay, after you are sure of the choice you want to build what type of PC, just go ahead, the next tip is to choose the processor / CPU. Because currently there are two processor choices for PC users, want processors from Intel or from AMD. Both processors are actually just as good, just for sure you already know that for Intel processors this usually costs more than AMD, but it is admitted that Intel is better than AMD. I also did not take sides in either, but indeed in fact Intel was superior. Those who prefer AMD are usually due to the price of AMD’s own processors are cheaper.
So do I have to choose Ryzen or core i Skylake, Kabylake / Coffeelake processors, is there no other choice? Oh, you don’t have to, all back to the budget, you don’t have to choose the processor, because there are still many choices of processors, both Intel and AMD, which are cheaper. For example, for Intel, there are still processors, the price of which is for example the Intel Pentium G … (eg G4560 or G4600). Or for cheaper prices can choose the lower generation, for example Intel Haswell or Ivybridge. Or for AMD there is also a cheap version, the version of Bristol Ridge.
For 2018 I recommend that if you want to choose an Intel processor, take the Skylake / Kabylake / Coffelake with socket 1151 because this socket is the latest version. And for AMD, at least you choose AMD Bristol Ridge because you have used the latest AM4 socket. The latest socket makes it easy for you to upgrade your processor later without having to buy a new motherboard again or buy new RAM again.
Okay again, after you determine whether you want to choose an Intel or AMD processor, we now choose RAM. Let your PC look current, use the latest generation of RAM, which is DDR4, because DDR4 is much faster than DDR3. The use of RAM is also adjusted to the use of the processor, because there is a processor that can only be juxtaposed with DDR4 RAM and there is a processor that can only be juxtaposed with DDR3 RAM. If the RAM is wrong, the PC will not turn on. So my recommendation is DDR4 RAM because it can be paired with Intel socket 1151 and AMD AM4 sockets. But again all depends on the budget, because the price of DDR4 RAM is indeed more expensive than DDR3. The 4GB capacity can only be priced at 200 thousand between DDR4 and DDR3, not to mention if you need 8GB of RAM means up to 400 thousand adrift.
After selecting RAM, then we will select VGA. This VGA can be mandatory or optional, depending on what processor you use. If you are using an Intel Skylake / Kabylake / Coffeelake processor, it usually includes IGP (Integrated Graphic Processor) including the AMD Bristol Ridge series APU (A6, A8, A10), and the GPU in it. Only this integrated VGA power is not maximal for games. But for emergencies, for example, your budget is not enough to buy an integrated VGA, VGA, which is also quite helpful for lightweight gaming. Whereas for AMD Ryzen and Athlon processors must use VGA because it hasn’t / doesn’t use integrated VGA.
Then what kind of VGA is recommended for purchase? The latest VGA output from AMD and Nvidia is recommended. For AMD you can choose RX series VGA. In the low budget class there is a choice of RX460, RX550 and RX560, in the lower class you can choose Radeon R7. For the higher class there is a choice of RX470, RX 480, RX 570 or RX580. As for the Nvidia camp for low budget class VGA can choose the GTX 1030, GTX 1050, the medium class and populist GTX 1050 TI. For the upper class you can choose GTX 1060, GTX 1070 or GTX 1080, the upper version can choose TI GTX 1070 or TI GTX 1080. Well, this VGA selection also depends on your budget again. There is no need to force a choice that is expensive.
