Hi,

I'm Nancy, a final-year student. I am interested in gaming, and I'm thinking of building a gaming PC - but I'm not some computer geek, and finding the right part seems too hard. Can you guys please check the compatibility I shared below and advice me if there are any changes which are needed to be made?

I really appreciate it, and thank you!

  1. 12th gen Intel i7 would be a better choice.
  2. Rather expensive motherboard. There are better options.
  3. CPU cooler is too weak for 8core/16thread cpu.
  4. Case doesn't have very good air-flow. Look for cases with mesh front instead.
  5. Expensive RGB ram. You can get 32GB ram for less money.
  6. Avoid Seagate Barracudas. Those are all SMR drives with very inconsistent write performance. Not suitable for OS drive. SSD is the must for any modern PC.
