Parts Needed to Build a PC (Computer Parts List & Explanation)

What Computer Parts do you need to build a PC, you ask? Does this mean you want to build your own PC? That is absolutely splendid! 🙂

Building your own Computer from individual PC Components has so many benefits compared to just going out and buying a pre-built PC:

It’s a lot of Fun! The anticipation of the individual Parts being delivered to your House, the shiny Boxes with all the different components in them, not to mention researching what parts you actually need, which you are doing right now!

By building your own Computer you gain a lot of knowledge into the inner workings of Hardware Components, how everything fits together and you will be able to troubleshoot if any Problems occur later on much easier, than when you have no Idea what is actually going on inside a PC Case.

Knowing the ins and outs of assembling a Computer and what Parts a Computer needs will also let you upgrade your Computer in the future, and buy components that you can actually upgrade easily.

Another very important factor is optimization. He who knows how a Computer works can also optimize it as much as possible.

Optimize by overclocking, by getting the right Parts for your specific purposes, be it Gaming, 3D Rendering, Modeling, Graphic Design, Video Editing or so many other purposes you can use a Computer for.

Building your own Computer is a lot cheaper than getting a pre-built PC. You can usually save around 30% in Cost when researching and buying the PC Components individually yourself.

And the best of it all, building a Computer is so easy, it’s kind of interesting that not more people are doing it!

Anyway, we now definitely know that we are on the right track in looking into building our own Computer, that’s probably why you came here for in the first place.

If you already have a grasp on what general type of Computer you need, what specific Parts do we need to build a PC?

Let’s see:

Computer Parts List (PC Components)

Here is the Computer Parts List with all the basic Hardware Parts that you will need for a functioning PC:

Let’s take a closer look at them:


The Computer case is nothing more than a fancy looking box that holds all of the PC’s components. It can be opened and closed and usually has pre-defined areas with screws and holes where all the other Components are supposed to be placed and attached to.

PC Cases come in different colors, sizes, with or without fans, some have LED lights some don’t, some have glass side panels, some others look absolutely crazy.

Usually, you can think of a PC Case as a black (or white) Box with some buttons on top. This is where all of your components will fit into, when you are done with building your PC.

You don’t actually need a case, you could also just lay all of your components on the floor or mount them on the wall, some people do, but being able to just pick up the entire Computer by picking up the Case comes in handy at times.

Some Cases that are extremely popular and often recommended are the NZXT H700i – ATX Mid-Tower or the Phanteks Enthoo Pro.


Next up is a very important part, the Motherboard. The Motherboard is a Printed Circuit Board that every other Computer Hardware Component will be attached to. It is like a central Hub that manages all the other Parts.

Parts needed to build a PC - Mainboard

The Motherboard has connectors for cables like power cables and data cables, slots for cards like GPUs & sockets for CPUs.

There are also lots of little building blocks like transistors, capacitors, jumpers and lots of other tiny parts, that all go towards making your different hardware components work well together.

Check out the best Motherboards for the popular AMD Ryzen CPUs here.

Processor (CPU)

Now, into the Motherboard Socket, the CPU is plugged in. Every CPU type has a specific Socket, that is named like 2066, 1151, AM4, TR4 and so on, and the Motherboard will need the exact same socket to be compatible with the CPU.

This is usually the first step in picking new parts for your own pc build. Pick a CPU, check what socket it has, and then pick a compatible Motherboard. Continue on from there.

Parts needed to build a PC - CPU

A CPU is the Central Processing Unit of a Computer, and without it, nothing really works.

Almost everything you do on a Computer will have to be calculated by the CPU in some way, so having a fast CPU (high clocks and high core count) will make your PC faster.

Head on over to the Custom PC-Builder Tool, to find the right CPU and Computer Parts for the type of Computer that you are looking at assembling

CPU Cooler

Anything that draws power also produces heat and the CPU produces lots of heat.

This means it has to be cooled to be able to operate flawlessly. What do we need for cooling a CPU? A CPU-Cooler! 🙂

Some CPUs like the AMD Ryzen 3rd Gen Series (3700X/3900X and so on) already have CPU-Coolers included in the CPU Box, but lots of others, like the popular Intel i9 9900K do not.

Make sure you have a CPU-Cooler that is compatible with your CPU and Socket. It is the same as with Motherboard Socket and CPU Socket. The Cooler has to fit the CPU and Socket.

Example: Are you planning on buying an LGA 1151 v2 CPU like the Intel i9 9900K? You need an LGA 1151 v2 Motherboard and an LGA 1151 v2 CPU-Cooler too. Easy as that!

Parts needed to build a PC - CPU Cooler

Air Cooled Tower CPU Cooler, Image-Source: bequiet

There are two mainstream CPU-Cooler types. One is the Air-Cooled Tower Cooler and the other is an AIO Closed Waterloop CPU Cooler.

The AIO Closed Waterloop Cooler cools overclocked CPUs & CPUs that run hot for long periods of time better but can be noisier (usually has more fans and the added pump noise) and needs more room in your PC-Case, as it is attached to the side walls of the case, connected to the CPU with some Water Pipes.

The air-cooled tower CPU cooler (See Image above) is great at cooling short performance bursts, is nice and quiet and needs less room in the case. It is simply placed on top of the CPU where it sits and goes about its cooling-work.

Graphics Card (GPU)

Next up is the Graphics Card. Its purpose is the calculation of anything having to do with visuals and outputs these visuals (Images, User Interface, GUI) onto the Monitor.

There are two main types of GPUs, the integrated GPU (iGPU) and a discrete GPU.

The integrated GPU is integrated into the CPU. This means, some CPUs already have a graphics chip built in and you will not need an additional GPU to attach a monitor to.

When your CPU has integrated Graphics (like the Intel i7 8700K CPU) it will output to the display Adapter on the Motherboard. The thing with integrated GPUs though is, that they are very limited.

They are usually good enough for light tasks such as Word-Processing, some minor Games and the like but as soon as you want to dive into graphic-heavy tasks such as 3D GPU Rendering, High-End Gaming, Video Editing, Graphic Design or lots of others you will have to get yourself a discrete GPU.

Parts needed to build a PC - GPU

Image-Source: Nvidia

A discrete GPU is a GPU that is not part of the CPU. It usually comes on its own little Printed Circuit Board (like the one in the Picture above), that is then plugged into a PCI Express Slot on your Motherboard.

Some modern GPUs include Nvidia’s RTX generation such as the RTX 2070, RTX 2080, RTX 2080Ti and so on. The competitor AMD also has a solid line-up with RX VEGA Series, RX 5xx Series GPUs and the NAVI Series.

The two Manufacturers, Nvidia and AMD are fighting a fierce battle in getting a lead over the other, but at the moment it seems as though NVIDIA would be the Brand to pick over AMD if you are looking for the maximum performance you can get out of a GPU.

Memory (RAM)

Random Access Memory (RAM) is the temporary thinking storage part of the Computer if you would compare it to a brain.

The RAM stores Data that is actively being worked on by the CPU. It can read and write very fast but loses everything it had stored once the power is turned off.

Parts needed to build a PC - RAM

Image-Source: gskill

RAM kits consist of RAM Modules. You can get just one Module or 2 Modules / 4 Modules or even 8 Modules for Motherboards that support this many RAM Modules.

A Motherboard has RAM slots where RAM gets plugged in to. RAM comes in different sizes starting around 4GB and going up to 32GB per Module on current systems. Having more Modules of course will multiply your RAM amount.

Find out what RAM performs the best for your future PC build.

Storage (HDD / SSD / NVME SSD)

Because RAM can’t store anything without power and we do want to be able to turn off our computer from time to time, we need a storage medium that retains its stored data, even when the power is off.

There are 3 main mass-storage types:

The HDD, the SSD and quite a new type of SSD, the NVME SSD.

All three do pretty much the same, they store data for you. The main difference between the three is the speed.

An HDD (which still has mechanically moving parts) is the slowest of the three and will usually read and save Data at about 100MByte/s.

An SSD will already read and write at around 500MByte/s and an NVME SSD currently reads and writes sequential Data with up to 3500MBytes/s.

So, yes, if you can swing it, get an NVME SSD such as the Samsung 970 Evo Plus!

Parts needed to build a PC - Samsung 970 EVO

Both HDDs and SSDs are plugged into a SATA plug onto the Motherboard via a SATA Cable. They also need Power that they get through a Power Cable from the PSU (Power Supply Unit, I’ll talk about that later!)

The NVME SSD though is just plugged into the Motherboard directly, it is very small and needs no extra cables.

Your Motherboard, of course, has to support NVME SSDs and have an M.2 Slot available. But almost all modern Motherboards nowadays have at least one of these. Highly recommended!

More Cooling

We talked about CPU Cooling a bit already. The CPU is not the only PC Component that needs cooling in a Computer.

The GPU of course also needs cooling, but every discrete GPU that you can buy already comes with an attached Cooler on top of it, so we don’t have to worry about extra cooling for the GPU.

Now, as the PC Case is usually closed and the PC Components inside the Case need preferably cool(ish) Air to be able to be cooled, there should be a way to blow (usually) colder air from outside of the PC’s case into the Case.

This is done by attaching Case Fans to the inside of the case. These then pull in cool air at the front of your PC and blow out the hot Air at the back of the PC.

This way the inside of the PC-Case and all of your PC Components ideally stay nice and cool.

Parts needed to build a PC - Case Fans

So do you need to get extra Case Fans?

Usually not, as the Cases are shipped with extra fans that will do just fine for this purpose.

If you are thinking about building a really quiet/silent PC though you might want to get higher quality Case Fans than are shipped with a standard case.

Power Supply Unit (PSU)

We have got ourselves a bunch of nice PC Components already, but nothing much usually happens without a power supply to supply power.

There are so many PSU brands with different wattage or efficiencies out there, that it can be quite difficult to decide which one to buy.

The important thing is to know how much Wattage your current PC Build will need to run stable and maybe how much you will need in the future if you are planning on adding more components, like extra GPUs or Drives.

You should then of course (now already) buy a stronger power supply, that will later also be able to handle the extra components.

Parts needed to build a PC - PSU

If you are unsure of how much Wattage your current or future PC Build actually needs head on over to the Wattage Calculator here that tells you exactly how much you need.

Some great Power Supplies that I can recommend without hesitation, are the CORSAIR RMX Series (2018), RM650x and the Seasonic FOCUS Plus 650 Gold PSUs. Another great PSU Brand is bequiet, but of course there are others that you might prefer.

That’s about it for our Computer Case. Everything that goes into the Case we have already discussed. We can close our case now and see what else we need to finish our PC Build.


You will, of course, need some kind of display device such as a monitor to be able to see what’s going on. Monitors come in all kinds of sizes, color, resolutions, aspect ratios and so on.

A popular modern Display usually is a 24” Full HD Monitor from Brands such as Asus, Dell, LG, and many others.

If you are looking for a Gaming monitor you might not need the IPS type Panels that have better color display and contrast.

Check this in-depth article on what is important in a great Monitor.

If you are into Graphic Design and Professional Color grading or Video Editing you should probably invest more into a good Monitor.

The Monitor is attached to either the discrete GPU or the Motherboard, depending on what type of GPU you have.

Operating System

Windows 10 is the currently leading Operating System that will operate your PC-System. Lots of online Stores offer Volume License Keys that usually don’t cost you more than 15$ per license.

Win 10 Logo

Of course, you will need to install the OS onto your Computer.

There are several ways to do this. You can use a Win10 DVD if you have one and your PC has a DVD Player.

Nowadays though, as optical Drives are becoming a thing of the past, the Operating System is usually either downloaded directly from the Internet (for you to create your own boot medium on DVD or thumb drive) or you can buy it on a USB Drive that you can install Win10 from.

Input Devices

Don’t forget a Mouse and Keyboard! 🙂 There are lots of other Input devices such as Graphic Tablets or Pens that you can also use, of course.

Tools needed to assemble a PC

That’s pretty much it for PC-Components & Input Devices. You now have all the parts needed to build a functioning PC.

To actually assemble a PC you will need:

  • Phillips head screwdriver (a magnetic one for finding those dropped screws)
  • Anti Static Wrist Strap (So you don’t damage any PC-Parts with static electricity)

Feel free to comment and ask for suggestions on your PC-Build or 3D-related Problem, I'll do my best to help out!



Hi ,

I would to help me with gaming build , i have budget of $1050…I would like some help.
I ‘ve been thinking of:

Motherboard:MSI B450 Max
Cpu:R7 2700X
Gpu:Asus Radeon RX 5700 8GB Dual Evo OC
Psu:A 80 gold 850 watt I found
Ram:16 gb 4000 MHz ddr4
Hdd:Wester Digital blue 1tb
Ssd:500gb samsung 860 evo

Hi Xizstense,

Thanks for dropping a comment!

Your list of components for your planned gaming build actually looks good. I have a couple of suggestions though. First, an 850-watt PSU is overkill for your system unless you plan on running a dual-GPU setup. If not, a 550-watt CPU will suffice. Also, a 4000MHz RAM kit is too much. You can get away with a 3200MHz or a 3600MHz RAM kit for that matter. Whatever you save from the change in PSU and RAM, you can then invest in a good CPU cooler from manufacturers such as be quiet, Noctua, Cooler Master, and the like. Other than that, you’re build’s good to go and you can expect highly enjoyable gaming sessions once you complete that!



Hi ,

I would to help me with gaming build , i have budget of $1800 .I kinda preffer intel build and i realy like this box ASUS TUF Gaming GT501 RGB, Mid-Tower .

Thank you in advance for your help and time .


Hi Stoyan,

Thanks for asking!

First off, I don’t tend to recommend the use of Intel because it’s a dead-end platform and there’s not much upgrade options unlike with Ryzen. That said, I came up with a Ryzen build for you and your $1,800 will get you something like the below:

Parts List:

CPU: AMD Ryzen 9 3900X 3.8GHz 12-Core Processor ($439.99)
CPU Cooler: be quiet! Dark Rock Pro 4 AM4 ($86.46)
Motherboard: Gigabyte X570 Aorus Elite ATX AM4 ($199.99)
GPU: NVIDIA RTX 2070 SUPER 8GB – MSI Gaming X ($549.99)
Memory: 32GB (2 x 16GB) Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4-3200 CL16 ($147.99)
Storage PCIe-SSD: Samsung 970 EVO PLUS 500GB M.2 Solid State Drive ($119.99)
Power Supply: Corsair CX Series CX550 550W ATX 2.4 Power Supply ($86.99)
Case: ASUS TUF Gaming GT501 Mid Tower Case ($169.99)

The total of the build comes up to $1,801.39 but you can expect this build to be more than powerful enough to handle whatever AAA games you throw at it and make your gaming sessions more enjoyable!


Trevor Whitney

Hey Alex!

I’m a 3D artist, designer, and music producer who uses Cinema 4d and Blender to make videos and cover art for mine and other peoples music. So far I’ve been using my MacBook Pro for rendering everything and it has not been fun nor worked for what I’ve wanted to create.

I have a budget of ~$3000 and can’t decide how to spend my money. I want a machine that will handle hundreds of tracks in Ableton and be able to smoothly manipulate and render 3D animations and stills with lots of polygons/dynamics etc.

I currently use the CPU render engines found in Blender and C4D but plan to expand to a GPU renderer such as Octane or Vray once I can afford it.

There are so many different combinations and It is quite overwhelming because I plan to do a bit of everything creative. Let me know your thoughts!

Thanks so much,

Timothy Winters

Help! I’ve been editing video on a macbook pro for a few years and I really need to up my game. I do a ton of work in After Effects and also open 3D Studio Max from time to time. I’d like to switch to a PC and I have a budget of $2000. Editing, photography, gaming…no problem….building a PC…not my arena. Any help you can give me would be great, I’m a bit frustrated. Thanks!!!!

Hey Timothy,

Thanks for asking!

A budget of $2,000 will get you a build with components like the below:

Parts List: https://www.cgdirector.com/pc-builder/?=yb1Egoc0lkb

CPU: AMD Ryzen 9 3900X 3.8GHz 12-Core Processor ($418.89)
CPU Cooler: be quiet! Dark Rock Pro 4 AM4 ($84.84)
Motherboard: ASUS TUF Gaming x570-Plus (Wifi) ATX AM4 ($189.99)
GPU: NVIDIA RTX 2070 SUPER 8GB – MSI Gaming X ($534.99)
Memory: 32GB (2 x 16GB) Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4-3200 CL16 ($159.99)
Storage SSD: Crucial MX500 1TB 2.5″ Solid State Drive ($114.99)
Storage PCIe-SSD: Samsung 970 EVO 1TB M.2 Solid State Drive ($169.99)
Power Supply: Corsair CX Series CX550 550W ATX 2.4 Power Supply ($69.29)
Case: Corsair Carbide Series 275Q ATX Mid Tower Case ($89.99)

The total of the build comes up to around $1,832.96. With this build, you get a Ryzen 9 3900X CPU and 32GB of RAM working together to ensure task responsiveness when you’re actively working inside the software. In addition to that, you also get an RTX 2070 SUPER GPU with support for CUDA core acceleration. This will definitely come in handy in case you need to use the GPU render engines. And when you start putting together your build, this article will help a lot: https://www.cgdirector.com/how-to-build-a-pc/


Joshi Amrut

Hii.. Sif i need pc for graphic design ple.. U suggest me best pc for me

Hey Joshi,

Thanks for dropping a line!

First off, if I may ask, how much are you willing to spend?

To give you an idea, a budget of around $1,000 could get you a build with specs like the below:

Parts List: https://www.cgdirector.com/pc-builder/?=Br1xh0h0lkb

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600X 3.8GHz 6-Core Processor ($199.99)
CPU Cooler: AMD Wraith Spire Cooler (Included with CPU) (-)
Motherboard: MSI MPG x570 Gaming Plus ATX AM4 ($159.99)
GPU: NVIDIA GTX 1660TI 6GB – Gigabyte Windforce ($279.99)
Memory: 16GB (2 x 8GB) Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4-3200 CL16 ($81.99)
Storage PCIe-SSD: Samsung 970 EVO PLUS 500GB M.2 Solid State Drive ($109.99)
Power Supply: Corsair CX Series CX550 550W ATX 2.4 Power Supply ($69.29)
Case: Corsair Carbide Series 275Q ATX Mid Tower Case ($89.99)

The total of the build comes up to around $991.23 but this is more than decent enough to handle your graphic design tasks. Alternatively, you can check out the site’s PC Builder Tool at https://www.cgdirector.com/pc-builder/. It’s a web-based tool that lets you specify your budget and use case and gives you the best recommendations based on your input.



Hi Alex can you please help me. I would like to build gaming pc with next parts:
-r5 3600 or r7 2700x (please tell me which is better)
-b450 tomahawk max or b450 aorus pro elite rev. 1.0 (or if you know better for that price)
-samsung 970evo ssd
-i think i will buy used 1070 gpu or can u tell me some new gpu 300euros
And can u you suggest me PSU for this and case please.
Thank you very much

Hey Ivan,

Thanks for asking!

Since you want a gaming PC, I think it would be best if you get the Ryzen 5 3600 as benchmarks show this has a slight advantage over the Ryzen 7 2700X when it comes to gaming. As for your motherboard, I’m not sure what exactly you mean because there is a B450 Aorus Pro and a B450 Aorus Elite but there is NO B450 Aorus Pro Elite. Be that as it may, these are all based on the B450 chipset and I tend to recommend that you get the cheapest motherboard you can get that has all the features you need. As long as you get the BIOS updated to support the 3rd gen of Ryzen processors, you should be good.

As for your choice of the Samsung 970 Evo, this is a solid SSD so you should go for it. In terms of GPU, 300 euros converted to USD is around $335 and some change and with this amount of money, you can already buy a brand new RTX 2060 which will give you peace of mind with its warranty compared to buying a used 1070. For your PSU, please check out the Corsair CX Series CX550 550W ATX 2.4 Power Supply and the Corsair Carbide Series 275Q ATX Mid Tower Case for your case.



Can you please tell me on which rtx 2060 you mean? (Msi, gigabyte..)


hey Alex, im trying to find a laptop that is meant for gaming especially i play a lot of high fps games and its even better if its a cheap best gaming laptop. i have the budget of $450-500 in which if its enough for me to buy a best gaming laptop, thx Alex

Hey ZachyBoi,

Thanks for dropping a line!

$450-$500 may not be enough to get you a gaming laptop for your high FPS games. However, if you’re willing to up your budget to around $630, you can get the Asus TUF Gaming Laptop FX504. Below are the specs of the said laptop:

CPU Intel Core i5-8300H 2.30GHz Quad-Core Processor
Graphics Card NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 2GB
Memory(RAM) 8GB DDR4-2666
SSD 256GB M.2 Solid State Drive
Weight 2.2 kg (~4.84pounds)
Display 15.6″, 1920×1080

As mentioned, the Asus TUF Gaming Laptop FX504 can be had for around $630 and with this, you get a decent laptop with a good CPU-RAM-GPU combination that will be able to run your games. However, you get what you pay for so please don’t expect it to perform like a more expensive and higher-specced laptop for that matter.



I would like to build a custom gaming pc for Minecraft ( I know you don’t need much power to do so) but I want it to run smoothly, I have 0 clue of a budget but cheaper is best as long as I can game, I really don’t know much about pcs so If someone could give me an idea of what I would need to buy that would be great thanks,
thank you for you time

Hey Alex,

Thanks for asking!

Compared to other games, the system requirements of Minecraft are fairly low. In addition to that, the simple art style of the game helps keep the hardware requirements low. In short, you don’t need to spend thousands of dollars to build a PC that will run Minecraft smoothly. That said, a budget of $1,000 should be able to get you a build like the below:

CGDirector.com Parts List: https://www.cgdirector.com/pc-builder/?=Br1xh0b0lkb

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600X 3.8GHz 6-Core Processor ($204.99)
CPU Cooler: AMD Wraith Spire Cooler (Included with CPU) (-)
Motherboard: ASUS TUF Gaming x570-Plus (Wifi) ATX AM4 ($183.99)
GPU: NVIDIA GTX 1660TI 6GB – Gigabyte Windforce ($279.99)
Memory: 16GB (2 x 8GB) Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4-3200 CL16 ($72.99)
Storage PCIe-SSD: Samsung 970 EVO 500GB M.2 Solid State Drive ($87.99)
Power Supply: Corsair CX Series CX550 550W ATX 2.4 Power Supply ($69.99)
Case: Corsair Carbide Series 275Q ATX Mid Tower Case ($89.99)

The total of the build comes up to around $989.93 but you can expect this build to run Minecraft smoothly day in, day out. And in the event that you want to play other games, this build is more than capable of handling most AAA games today.



hi Alex, I am currently in the process of picking the components for my new custom pc build, I’m very handy so I’m currently building a custom desk pc/case from scratch, more of high performance and “show” piece, entire case/pc will be air cooled, with multiple fans through out the entirety of the case my questions are,

this is my current part list https://pcpartpicker.com/list/xvnH7T
budget is about $1500
main components I want are the Ryzen 5 3600x cpu and the 5700 xt gpu
I prefer to go with a x570 motherboard and prefer for it to be a WIFI model just so I don’t have to buy an adapter

1.. would you personally pick a different model 5700 xt or x570 motherboard for this build?

2. I have been researching for months for best ram for a 3600x with a x570 motherboard and 5700 xt gpu but I just don’t know enough, I’m looking for best performance without going overkill on price, like what MHz and timing would you recommend for a build like mine?

3. what power supply would you recommend?

4. for price to air flow being on the cheaper side preferably under $10/each because the case will have roughly 10 fans total, what fans would you recommend?

5. any recommendations for a fan controller since I will be using roughly 10 fans?

6. any other comments on the build would be appreciated

thank you for your time and help

this is basically what I’m building a powerful pc that is also a show piece


Here is the build I will most likely use: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/QP2drV
Since this is my first PC build I would like to ask a few questions,

1. Are all these parts compatible AND will they all fit in the case?

2. How many (if any) fans should I buy and which type should I use?

3. what suggestions would you give me about this combination, like is it useless to be using something if I don’t have a certain amount of something else?

4. What additional things would I need to buy like extra cable extenders and stuff?

These are all the things I can think of right now, I want to use this computer for work as well as gaming. I don’t know which games I will play yet and have a budget of anywhere around $2000, idk lol.
Thanks in advance!

Edit: I don’t have a mouse, keyboard, or monitor that I can use for my new PC
