¡°I purchased 2 Western Digital Scorpio Blue WD1600BEVT 160GB hard drives. Ended up not being able to use them due to they did not fit laptops, (I was given incorrect information by laptop manufacturer). Newegg customer service was awesome in helping me return the hard drives to them. I have always use Newegg for my computer needs and will continue to do so!! I suggest to every one go to Newegg they have best prices and quality and now will add in awesome customer service!¡±

Components

Building your own computer isn’t as daunting of a task as it sounds. And once you understand what you’re doing, putting a system together from various computer parts and components can be a very rewarding experience. Best of all, you’ll have the computer you really want instead of what a big box retail store is trying to sell you. Fortunately, Newegg has all the components you’ll need and more!

Picking the Right Computer Hardware

At its core, a computer system is nothing more than a combination of computer parts working together. The most essential parts are the CPU, motherboard, memory (RAM), power supply, and hard drive (or SSD). These are typically housed in a computer case, but not always. However, unless you’re building a test bench where you’ll need to swap out components on a constant basis, you should definitely get a computer case.

Most computer system builders build their own computers for gaming. If that’s your goal, then you’ll definitely want to check out Newegg’s assortment of graphics cards. We have options to meet any budget.

If you’re not a gamer, then you might be able to skip the high-end graphics card. Modern CPUs, like the Intel Skylake i7, can handle almost all graphic needs that a business user might have, and even some light gaming. Regardless of your specific use case, it’s not a bad idea to invest in a large amount of modern memory (RAM), like DDR4. It will help keep your machine running smoothly even when multi-tasking.

Don’t forget to pick up an external hard drive if you have room in your computer building budget. An external hard drive is a convenient way to add storage to your system without having to crack open the computer case. Best of all, it allows you to take your data wherever you go. Portability is never a bad thing.

Whether you’re building your first computer or your fiftieth, Newegg is here to help. Start picking out your computer parts today!
