Learn to build your own PC in three simple steps.

The best part about building your own PC is that you can make a system that's tailored just for you. The two most important questions when planning your build are what you'll be using it for and how much money you can spend on it.

For productivity use and only light gaming, for example, you can build around an attainable CPU with integrated graphics and a motherboard with the essential ports and expansion slots you need. Enthusiast and high-end builders with more to spend, especially gamers and content creators, will want to plan around pricier and higher-performance CPUs, fancier motherboards with cutting-edge connectivity and distinctive style, and powerful, quiet-running graphics cards that can game with realistic image quality and high frame rates. The sky’s the limit.

When it's finally time to put together your PC, be sure to find a workspace that's clean and spacious enough for you to lay out all of the components you’ll be assembling. Seek out a hard, non-conductive surface, to serve as the foundation of your workspace. Avoid standing on or building on carpeted surfaces that might cause static build-up and discharge, as a static zap could damage your expensive components. Make sure that you have all the tools you need, including small and medium Philips screwdrivers, at hand to tighten the various screws that secure components to one another and to the PC case.

If you're not sure how to assemble your system, carefully read the included manuals for each one, especially the motherboard, before beginning to understand how the various components go together. For extra help, you can even consult online communities like the ASUS PC DIY Facebook group for more specific questions.

With those checks complete, connect a monitor, mouse, and keyboard to the appropriate ports on your PC and plug the power cable into your power supply. Once that's all done, press the power button on your PC. If all has gone well, you'll be rewarded with a power-on self test (POST) screen and enter into the motherboard's firmware interface.

Once you've installed your operating system, you can enjoy the fruits of your labor with a PC that's not just tailored to your unique needs, but also a project you can feel proud of completing on your own. Planning, picking parts, and putting them all together may have seemed intimidating at first, but once it's all done, we think you'll agree that building your own PC is as easy as 1-2-3.

Essentials For Your Builds

Motherboards
Graphic Cards
AIO Coolers
PSU
Routers

To form a complete PC, a CPU has to be paired with a motherboard—a large printed circuit board that provides power to the CPU and connects it to all of the other components that make up a system. A motherboard makes these connections by providing standardized slots for components and a number of external connectors, like USB ports, that you may already be familiar with.

Intel
AMD

To output video signals to a monitor, modern PCs use a graphics processing unit, or GPU. Unlike the CPU, which is a general-purpose processor that can perform most any kind of mathematical operation, the GPU greatly speeds up certain types of calculations that are necessary for basic display output and video playback. More powerful GPUs can perform those calculations quickly enough to run the 3D simulations necessary for gaming in real time.

Closed-loop liquid cooler or all-in-one liquid cooler, circulates water-based coolant through hoses that run between a pump head and a radiator like the one you'd find in your car. The pump head has a copper plate on its base that contacts the metal cover of the processor and transfers heat into the liquid sealed into the system that's circulating on the other side. Fans mounted to the radiator then transfer heat from the liquid to the surrounding air.

Power supplies come in fully modular, semi-modular, and non-modular varieties, each of which refer to a type of cabling system. Fully modular units don't have any fixed cables running out of their enclosures. Instead, you install only the cabling you need using sockets on the front of the unit. Semi-modular units might have fixed cables for the highest-current wiring, but let you customize the remainder of the cables for storage devices and peripherals. Non-modular PSUs come with all of their cabling hard-wired.

The number of wireless devices in our lives is multiplying at a torrid pace. Tech-savvy households can easily include over a dozen devices between smartphones, tablets, PCs, game consoles, smart TVs, digital assistants, and an expanding array of IoT gear. That’s a lot to manage under one roof, especially during prime time, when concurrent streaming, surfing, and gaming sessions all want their share of available bandwidth. With this in mind, we’ve deployed it across a family of new routers capable of keeping up with your appetite for digital devices.
