Pair it carefully with your GPU to avoid bottlenecks. As a general guide we recommend an i3 CPU + RTX3050 or below i5 CPU + RTX3060 to RTX4070 i7 + RTX4070Ti to RTX4080 or i9 + RTX4090 or above
Not enough will severely impact performance but more than you need wont improve it. We recommend 16GB as a baseline for low to mid-range system, 32GB for a high end system and 64G or above only when you have a particular use case that justifies it.
Pair it carefully with your CPU to avoid bottlenecking in certain workloads. All RTX3050 and above GPUs support up to 4 UHD(4K) displays.
Responsible for power delivery to the CPU and connectivity for all other components. We recommend pairing high end motherboards with high end CPUs, the default selection for mid-range CPUs & entry-level motherboards with entry level CPUs.
As configured this system will draw a max of 0watts, we recommend a +100 watt buffer as power supplies run most efficiently at below 90% load. The Bronze/Gold/Platinum rating indicates AC to DC conversion efficiently (85%, 90% & 92% respectively).
The primary drive will be where your operating system is installed to (if one is selected below). If you are selecting multple storage devices we recommend making the primary drive the fastest. Speeds shown below in MB/s (Megabytes per second)
Great for back-ups or extra storage if your primary drive is not enough.
Two drives not enough? Sure, we can do a third! (or if you need even more, reach out to us for a specialized quote)
Have some old software, movies or albums you'd like to be able to use? Modern PC cases no longer come with internal mounting bays but external optical drives can be used instead. They plug in via USB when needed and can be unplugged and put away when not being used.
Plenty of styles to suit any taste and need. Differences between the options to consider include dimensions, airflow, and I/O panel offerings
Larger coolers can run quieter & allow for better peak performance. We recommend Air Coolers for i5 CPUs or below High Performance Air Coolers, or Liquid Coolers for i7 CPUs & High Performance Liquid Coolers for i9 CPUs
Your chassis, GPU and CPU cooler will already come with fans. No extra fans are ever necessary but the following options are available for those who would like to swap them out for something else.
Fan sets include 5 units unless otherwise limited by chassis selection. Any existing chassis fans will be removed.
Some motherboards come with WiFi included and all come with wired ethernet. Wired (ethernet) is always best for speed & latency however if the selected motherboard does not include WiFi and Wired is not an option for you, you'll need one of the adapters below.
99% of home or small business users will only ever need the Home edition of Windows. The key benifits of the Pro edition are, support for over 128GB of RAM, BitLocker disc encryption, group management policies, kiosk mode & remote update deployment. The full list of features can be found at microsoft.com
