The following collection of parts form but an example of choices. You are not ordering anything nor are you sending a request. This is only to help you find out what parts to consider. These are not the only parts clients can choose. In fact, any part of any brand should be OK.
Once you have selected what parts you would like to try, click the tab 'Design' to see the price and stats of your composition!
Your CPU (Processor) computes almost every task. Therefore, it is important to supply a high-end computer with a decent CPU. Its main effect is speed, limited by how many tasks are computed within a short time.
The i3 (Intel Core) is a recommended option for computers used for study or work.
The i5 is the minimum option for a computer used for gaming or video editing.
The i7 is a powerful CPU granting serious performance, ideal for gaming and video-editing.
The latest designed Intel Core of course has better design for recent hardware and software development, making the choice of generation of your CPU important: 'How long will this choice be optimal considering the development of improvements?'
Some CPU types come in either locked or unlocked. This refers to its capability of being modified by its user. This is for extreme high-end computers.
Everything shown on your screen is rendered by either your graphics card (GPU) or your CPU (Integrated graphics).
For most tasks, your CPU can easily render graphics, especially when a high-performance CPU is installed. However, for tasks concerning advanced 3D graphics, mostly from games, performance will drop when there is no GPU installed.
In order to play games smoothly, we will need a decent graphics card. Let us review some options.
Although the options above only include cards from GeForce Nvidia, many other brands can perform greatly since a GPU is a standalone component: As long as the motherboard includes a slot (PCIx16) and the corresponding driver can be installed, the card can be combined with almost any system.
A 1060 GPU should be able to render almost every game on ULTRA settings. Newer gens can be considered when one wants to be prepared for future advanced games.
Apart from generation (Which will not go below 1050 for Nvidia, since integrated graphics can already provide performance of that of a 650), one can choose to include options such as 'TI', for an unlocked version and 'OC' for an overclocked version.
Note that it is unefficient to combine a high-end GPU with a low-end CPU, since not every task for gameplay is computed through the GPU.
Motherboards operate as infrastructures for all components in a computer. Obviously, it is important to provide components with a compatible motherboard or vice versa. Furthermore, speed thus performance often depends on capabilities of the motherboard.
Is it compatible with the components chosen? ·It should provide the right slot for the CPU ·It should provide the right slots for the chosen RAM sticks. ·It should have a slot for your GPU ·It should have the right SATA Speeds or m.2 slots for SSD's
The front and back of your case containing USB, audio & video and other slots all depend on your motherboard.
A computer needs RAM to store instructions of the programs running. From there it can quickly load and compute tasks. The CPU reads instructions from the RAM instead of reading it from the disks, which would be painfully slow.
The speed of the RAM should work with the speed of the CPU. Its type should also fit in the motherboard.
To know what size to choose, we need to consider what the computer is used for. 8GB should be enough for most tasks, including most games, since graphics are mostly stored on the GPU memory. However, when using programs that need to be able to work with several or a lot of big archieves such as videos or a large amount of HQ photo's, more RAM is recommanded.
Nowadays, we have the super-fast SSD to store our data on. However, they are still quite expensive. A cheaper option when it comes to store a lot of data (Over 500GB) is to install a HDD (Hard Disk Drive).
An ideal combination of the two, is to install a SSD and install your operating system on it and some other frequently used programs or games, together with a HDD to store data and backups.
The speed difference is mostly seen when there is a lot of data-traffic. Playing some music and editing documents can evenly be done on a HDD.
Although still quite expensive, the Solid State Drive is a very popular storage option, since it can easily transfer a huge amount of data in a matter of seconds. This is ideal for gaming and intensive programs. They are small and can be even smaller when plugging them directly into the motherboard (M.2), and they are silent. However, when it comes to storing a lot of non-program data, like documents, backups and photo-video, their speed is not that profitable anymore, compared to how much they cost.
An ideal combination is to install a SSD and install your operating system on it and some other frequently used programs or games, together with a HDD to store data and backups.
Every component is of course powered by a PSU. It should supply enough power and support the wirering your components need. For most computers, 550 WATTS is enough. For computers with multiple GPU's however, more power is needed. It is important to not only have enough power for what the computer needs now, but also for what it might need in the future.
Great options when adding a monitor are features as OLED and high refreshing rates. OLED is a new type of screen now coming slowly to the market. Having multiple screens is an ideal option for working. One should check whether the GPU or motherboard supports its input.
Cases are often chosen carefully. They can be very simple and small or large and fancy. As long as it supports the chosen motherboard size in ATX and provide enough airflow, a case can be as simple or fancy as one desires.

I bought a PC from Wolf. The PC is working great and has been installed correctly, no system problems. The parts are high-end but not too expensive. Service is great aswell.

When I requested a PC built, I got a respond with great enthusiasm. Overall, I had a pleasant experience and I was comfortable with the procedure. I was immediately helped out after, with a small problem with the fans. I would recommend to request a PC built here, especially when interested in great and enthusiastic service.
I am satisfied with the collaboration and the result. This was what I was looking for and I was satisfied with the value of money. The best part was the fast delivery and installment.
I needed an upgrade for my PC, but I did not know how to build one myself or upgrade one. Wolf offers a great service for this. First of all, he finds out what parts fit best with your budget and secondly, should you be stuborn, he does not mind installing parts you picked yourself. I was satisfied with the communication I had with Wolf, even after the built I could still get help for small problems. To summarize, I got a great PC for a sharp price, and it has been assembled by an enthousiastic, happy-to-help guy.

Wolf helped me assamble my PC. He explained every detail such that I was aware of what I was gonna do and what I was going to get. He helped me assamble and install the best parts. I am still happy with my PC and it works excellently.
