Your CPU choice can sometimes form a performance bottleneck if it is significantly less powerful than the rest of your components affecting the overall performance. The contrary is also true example neglecting the processor for an out of budget Graphic Card.
Be sure to consider all the following factors before you buy a motherboard. Chipset performance, fast connectivity features and technologies example: built-in Wi-Fi 6E, 2.5 Gb Ethernet or needed ports such as Thunderbolt™ 4.Not all Motherbards are built the same even if they are compatible with your processor series.
Don't exceed the Memory kit quantity supported by the motherboard selected. General idea is 4x but you could choose 2 kits of 2 x 32GB as an example.
Primary Storage & Secondary Storage
Primary Storage is generally where we will mount the operating system. Secondary Storage suggestions are typically higher capacities and workload ratings.
Know what kind of power wattage and connections the graphics card requires. We recommend a minimum of 2 eight-pin connector rails, but this can vary.
Choose an optimal support for your casing. 120mm, 240mm, 280mm or 360mm. Consult the case specifications for details.
Wattage to consider while selecting a power supply. PCI-E expansion cards, internal devices (storage), ports occupancy, cooling fans, pumps and other components that may also need more power.
Do not focus entirely on aesthetics. Ergonomy, air flow efficiency, materials and size are just a few factors to consider. Function is more important.
Unless you require specific sound features. the the integrated sound provided by the motherboard selected is in most cases sufficient. consult the motherboard audio chip specs.
Note: Professional assembly and testing benefit from a priority service replacement parts, additional stress testing, extended period support done by ticket by pros, future upgrade consultations and more.
If you plan in exceeding 128GB, Windows 10 Pro might be the best choice for you. All units are loaded 64 Bit versions.
We may ship your accessories separately. You will receive a second tracking number when your PC is built and shipped or sooner.
