Hardware and Parts for a Custom PC
They say that when you want something done right, do it yourself. Build your own PC for maximum speed and performance by starting with the best computer parts, from the hardware up. With Best Buy’s selection of CPUs, motherboards, RAM, hard drives, video cards and more, you’ll have everything you need to build the computer of your dreams.
Customize the Insides
Before you start to build your own computer, you’ll need the right parts. Start from the inside out with a motherboard, CPU, RAM, hard drive, sound card, video card and network card. Like the mother of your PC, the motherboard holds all the computer parts together. Your choice of CPU and RAM will determine how fast and efficient your computer will be, while the hard drive will provide the storage space you need. With a suitable sound card, video card and network card, your computer will be set for all your entertainment, from gaming to web-surfing to movie-watching.
Make it Look and Feel Cool
Complement your computer’s stealth performance with a cool computer case. A case with ventilation and integrated fans will keep your system cool for smooth performance. If the case doesn’t have fans, add some. For a high-performance PC such as a gaming computer, consider a liquid cooling system for maximum ventilation. Finally, don’t forget the power supply to get your PC up and running.
