Build your first gaming PC: 5 tips from a first-time builder


Hi everyone, my name is Joe, editor of TechRadar, and I have never built a PC. Until now. Yes, I work for tech media and have never tangled my fingers in SATA cables. It’s my shame. But recently that has all changed.

I’ve been a PC gamer for as long as I can remember, but the systems my parents received from friends and family were just enough to handle Wolfenstein 3D and later Star Wars: Tie Fighter. When Everquest hit, I needed a more robust rig, which took months of savings (and a little help from my parents).

When World of Warcraft (my ultimate PC gaming obsession) kicked in, all I had to do was buy a better graphics card (and have a snarling man at local CompUSA install it for me) . Not long after, laptops started to take off, with the rise in popularity and the drop in prices. It sparked my passion for mobile computing, and I didn’t look back until a few months ago.

Build a Gaming PC Tips

This was before I made a cable management plan

All the hype around the Xbox One and PS4 launches made me want a serious home gaming rig. Despite their plug-and-play nature, I’m tired of their walled gardens. I thought about creating a steam engine for a minute, but wanted a Windows machine for broad support. The reality of the situation was getting clearer and clearer, I would just have to build my own gaming PC. And I needed to do that before the last World of Warcraft expansion, Warlords of Draenor was released in November.
