Main Components to Build a Computer

This list of parts, or “components” are necessary to build a computer. The only exception will be the dedicated Graphics Card.

For basic systems, a combination of onboard graphics and a CPU supporting that feature can be used as an alternative. This is only ideal in general and light-use situations.

Gamers, graphic designers, photo editors, and other advanced users, will not find onboard graphics suitable to their needs and will usually require a mid to high-range dedicated Graphics Card in their build.
