  1. Build Your Own PC Arianto Gunawan CS 147 Fall 2004

  2. Main Components • CPU (Intel and AMD) • Hard Drive (IDE and SCSI) • Motherboard • Memory • Power Supply • Video Card

  3. Other components • Computer case • Monitor • CD or DVD drive • Floppy drive • Speakers

  4. Auxiliary Components • Sound card • Printer • Web cam • Surround speakers • USB Flash drive

  5. First Step: Choosing the CPU • Intel or AMD? • AMD is more cost effective • AMD takes less power consumption • Older AMD models are more sensitive to heat • Intel processors are generally better for multitasking

  6. Business/General Use Performance, Intel vs. AMD

  7. 2nd Step: Choosing Motherboard • Each CPU has its own socket • AMD Athlon XP = Socket A • AMD Athlon 64 = Socket 754, 940, or 939 • AMD Sempron = Socket 754 • Intel Pentium 4 = Socket 775 or 478 • Intel Celeron = Socket 775 or 478 • Be sure to get a motherboard that supports your CPU’s socket

  8. Choosing a Motherboard (cont’d) • Determine how much memory you are going to buy, motherboards can support memory ranging from 2GB to 4GB • Determine the type of your Video card, some video cards requires PCI/PCI express slot. But generally, most video cards requires an AGP slot.

  9. 3rd Step: Adding Memory • After choosing a motherboard, consult your motherboard’s manual to find out which memory type is supported • Good memory brands: Mushkin, Corsair, Samsung • Value memory brand: Kingston

  10. 4th Step: Choosing a Video Card • Depends on what type of computer you want to build • For general purpose computer, a GeForce MX card should be sufficient. • For multimedia and gaming, a GeForce 6600 or ATi X700 should be enough • For extreme 3D gaming, a GeForce 6800 or ATi X800 is recommended

  11. Video Card Power Consumption

  12. Video Card Benchmark

  13. Hard Drive • IDE or SCSI? • IDE is a lot cheaper • SCSI is faster • IDE drives generally has more storage • Unless you need speed, go with IDE

  14. Monitor • CRT or LCD? • CRT is less expensive • CRT generally has higher refresh rate • LCD takes up less space • LCD produces less heat • LCD requires less power • In the long run, LCD is more cost effective

  15. Power Supply • In general buying a 350W power supply is enough for most computers • But if you plan to build a multimedia computer, get a power supply with higher power rating, preferably 400+W

  16. CPU Power Consumption

  17. Average Power Consumptions

  18. Where to Buy? • Research first • Figure out the system you want to buy • www.tomshardware.com • www.xbitlabs.com • www.anandtech.com • Shop smart • www.techbargains.com • www.pricewatch.com
