Let’s get right to assembly!
Building a gaming PC may seem daunting at first, but it’s really not as complicated as you might think. Follow along with the official Intel DIY PC Building Kit videos and you’ll see how to put your exact hardware together – and you’ll have fun doing it, too. Once you’ve built your first PC, you’ll have learned valuable skills that can help you build another system, upgrade yours in the future, or perform basic repairs – making your investment pay off in the long run.
Gaming PCs need powerful CPUs and GPUs in order to deliver high-quality, high-speed action in modern games. They also need enough RAM and storage to keep things running smoothly and a motherboard to make it all work together. These DIY systems have components that have been hand-selected by hardware experts at Intel and Newegg to work together to meet the needs of the most popular games.
Both systems have the hardware needed to stay well above the critical 60 frames-per-second threshold that you’ll want if you’re playing any fast-paced or competitive online games. The combination of a 9th Gen Intel Core i5-9400F CPU with a GTX 1660 GPU can give you all the power and performance needed for smooth gameplay across modern gaming titles at medium graphics settings.
If you’re looking for FPS numbers well above 100 in many games, or want to max out all your visual options while still maintaining high performance, the RTX 2060 in the Intel® Core™ i5 Unlocked GeForce RTX Gaming DIY Kit is the way to go. With the RTX 2060, you also get support for NVIDIA’s RTX features, real-time graphical enhancements that represent the very latest in realism and graphical flair. This kit also comes with an i5-9600KF CPU, which is ready to be overclocked if you’re looking for extra performance from your system. You can also download Intel’s Performance Maximizer to make sure you’re getting the most out of your new rig.
