The short answer: no.
A power supply unit, or PSU, was the first thing I started looking into after I bought my case. But I soon realised there is a vast range of power-supplying capabilities – with the most basic question “what wattage is it?” ranging from 300W to 1200W. That’s quite a difference.
So, ignoring other fancy PSU stuff, how do you figure out what wattage to get?
July was an exciting month.
Following my last post a whole bunch of purchasing ensued. In fact, the next posts are all going to be retrospective as I’ve built my PC now!
The last couple of months have consisted largely of what I’ve come to call passive research - aka I discovered Linus Tech Tips videos on YouTube and have watched a copius amount of them…
For a couple of years I’ve had the intention of building a PC for myself – something I haven’t done in a very long time. In fact, I’ve never built a PC from scratch for myself before. Back in college, in hardware class, is the only time I’ve gone from an empty case to a working computer. Around the same time, but outside of college, I did a little bit of cobbling together the better components from old computers I could get my hands on to upgrade the computers of friends and family. But I never built my own machine.
