This Time We Will Discuss 4 Tips for Beginners to Dive into the World of PC Gaming

1. Find Out What You Need

Maybe many of you already have a desktop PC for just browsing, watching YouTube, sending e-mails, doing assignments, or so on. But, did you know that in a PC there are various components in the CPU that you need so that your PC can be used to play games? Starting from the Processor, RAM, VGA, and HDD. Find out what lowest PC specs you need to play a game by browsing the lowest PC specs needed to play the games you love on the internet. That way you will know, your PC specifications are now sufficient or not.

For example, you want to play GTA V and for example the lowest specifications needed for GTA V are core i5 / AMD FX, 8GB RAM, 1 GB VGA, and 60GB HDD, after you study your own PC components, it turns out that you have a PC according to these specifications, but not with Your VGA is still too low. From here you know what you need, you have to buy a new VGA to upgrade your PC to be able to play GTA V. This can also save you a little bit.

2. Research and Study PC Hardware on the Internet

The next most important thing you should do is do some good PC hardware research on the Internet. Maybe this is something that is very annoying for you, especially for those of you who are still new to the world of PC Gaming. You can start from the processor which is divided into 2 brands AMD and Intel, what are the specifications of the two, both in terms of processor type and speed, how many cores do you have, what are the functions of each component in the processor, how are the differences between each component, and what type of socket does it have? owned by the processor. You can also do the same in the next components such as RAM, VGA, HDD, Power Supply, and so on.

t is very annoying if you have to remember and learn hundreds of types of processors and other components. But believe me, when you already know most of these types of components, you will be wiser in choosing which components you should buy to assemble a new PC or upgrade your old PC without having to waste a lot of money in vain. I also felt that when I first entered the world of PC Gaming, maybe I’m still not perfect for this like IT experts in general, but at least I know very well what PC components I need.

3. Adjust to what is needed

The 3rd point is almost the same as the 2nd point, you have to adjust your PC components to what you need. For example, you want to assemble a PC to play games like Battlefield 3, with high graphics settings and a resolution of 1080 pixels, then you have to adjust your PC specifications accordingly. It would be a waste of time if you assemble your PC with “monster” specifications such as Intel Core i7 4.0Ghz, 16 GB RAM, GTX 780 4GB GDDR 5, and a 2TB HDD but you only use it to play games like League of Legends or DotA 2. incidentally only requires PC specifications that are not so high.

It’s a different story if you assemble your PC to play high-resolution games or assemble your PC not just to play games. For example, you want to edit videos, create 3D animations, or render VFX (Visual Effects) like VFX in the Transformers movie in After Effects. Then the “monster” specifications that I mentioned above you must have. Adjust to what you need, don’t waste your money just for things you don’t need.

4. Saving

You already know what I mean, it’s not a small amount of money that you have to prepare to buy or upgrade a PC. One way for you to have a lot of money is to save, especially for those of you who are still in school. Maybe some of you think this method is a very annoying and old-fashioned way, but believe me, you will get its own satisfaction when you save and can get a sufficient amount of money to buy or upgrade your PC.

Besides being able to buy or upgrade a PC, saving can also lead you to buying original games. Okay, I’m not being a hypocrite here, indeed you can play pirated games on PC for free. But, aren’t you sad if your favorite game developer goes bankrupt and doesn’t produce your favorite game due to piracy? One way to prevent that from happening is to buy their games.

Buying original games doesn’t have to be expensive, you can buy original PC games with big discounts on steam summer sale and some discounts given by Origin (EA), uPlay (Ubisoft), and trusted local original game sellers. Some discount events that you need to take note of are the steam summer sale, christmas sale, and winter sale. By buying original games, you indirectly appreciate the developer’s hard work and support the developer to survive so that he can still make your next favorite games. Wouldn’t it be an achievement in itself for you if you could assemble / upgrade a PC and buy your original game with your own efforts?

Okay, this is where our discussion ends this time. Everything I write here are tips and suggestions for those of you who are new to the world of PC Gaming. I don’t mean to blame you if you have a “monster” specification but you only use it to play games like DotA 2, it all comes back to your decision, because the money you use is your own money. The essence of our discussion this time is, learn to save your expenses to a minimum by buying the PC specifications you need to play games.

Never forget to study every component of the existing PC, in order to make it easier for you to assemble and upgrade your PC wisely in the future. And always remember to assemble the PC to fit what you need it for your own good.
