How Do I Set Up My PC For Gaming?

Do you want to set up your PC for gaming on your own? If so, it is simple. Follow the steps below: 

Research

Before you build your PC, it is crucial to know which kind of game you want to install. Since there are different kinds of games in the market, you want to identify one first before you start to assemble them. One of the best places to perform the research is the thegamingsetup.com website. You will find different types of gaming keyboards, mice, and controllers. Hence, you can choose which one suits your budget and interest. 

Before you build your PC, know the material you need. They include the following 

·                     Motherboard 

·                     CPU

·                     Memory (RAM)

·                     Power Supply Unit (PSU)

·                     Storage

·                     PC case

·                     Graphics card (GPU)

After confirming you have all these materials, follow the following process to build your PC for gaming:

Step 1: Install CPU

Remove the motherboard from its packaging and put it in a safe place in your workspace. After that, find the CPU socket- it is covered with a plastic cap for protection. After that, look for a small arrow in the socket and take note of it.

Look for a small metal lever on the CPU socket, press it down, and pull it gently on the side to open the socket tray. 

The last step in this section is handling the CPU. Ensure you are very careful as you undertake this process. Remove the CPU from the package. Ensure you hold it on the edges and avoid touching the pins on the bottom of the chip and the top of the chip.

 After that, look for an arrow in one corner of the CPU. Line it up with the arrow on the socket and place the CPU on the socket. You will then have to lower the retention lever downwards and then shove it back into place to place it properly. 

Step 2: Install CPU Cooling 

There are diverse types of CPU coolers with different installation methods. Therefore, you should check the manual and follow the instructions on it. For example, some coolers come with thermal paste. Some coolers require a mounting bracket. 

Step 3: Install Memory 

Motherboards have different RAM slots. Some of them have four, while others have two slots. Therefore. Check the number of slots you have on your motherboard. After that, put the RAM into place. As you do so, ensure you follow all the instructions provided in the manual. 

Step 3: mount power supply 

Remove the PSU from the package. After that, figure out where PSU is supposed to fit in your case. Orient it with its fan facing outside the case. However, if it has a vent, mount the PSU upside down. 

Step 4: Install Motherboard 

Check if the motherboard was packaged together with an unattached I/O shield. If so, snap it into place at the back of your case. After that, you can install your motherboard. Remember to check if all the cables are all threaded. 

After that, follow the following steps to complete the process

·                     Install storage 

·                     Install Operating System
