ChatGPT answer to the question: How to make a cheap PC?

To make a cheap PC, you’ll need to focus on getting the best value for your money while still meeting your basic computing needs. Here are some tips to help you build an affordable PC:

  1. Set a budget: Determine the maximum amount you’re willing to spend on your PC. This will help you prioritize your components and make informed decisions.
  2. Choose the right processor: Look for a processor that offers a good balance between performance and price. AMD’s Ryzen processors are often a popular choice for budget builds.
  3. Select a compatible motherboard: Once you’ve chosen a processor, find a motherboard that supports it and has the necessary features you require. Avoid overpaying for extra features you won’t use.
  4. Opt for sufficient RAM: Aim for at least 8GB of RAM, which is usually enough for everyday computing tasks. You can always add more RAM later if needed.
  5. Storage options: Consider using a combination of a small SSD (Solid State Drive) for your operating system and frequently used applications, along with a larger HDD (Hard Disk Drive) for data storage. SSDs provide faster boot times and application loading, while HDDs offer more storage capacity at a lower cost per gigabyte.
  6. Graphics card: If you’re not planning to do any intensive gaming or graphic design work, you can rely on integrated graphics from the processor to save money. Most modern processors have decent integrated graphics capabilities.
  7. Power supply: Choose a reliable power supply unit (PSU) with enough wattage to support your components. Don’t overspend on a higher wattage PSU unless you plan to upgrade or add more power-hungry components in the future.
  8. Case and peripherals: Look for affordable computer cases that offer good airflow and cable management. Consider reusing peripherals like keyboards, mice, and monitors if you already have them to save money.
  9. Operating system: If you have a valid license for a Windows version, you can use that to install the operating system. Alternatively, consider using free and open-source operating systems like Linux.
  10. Shop around and compare prices…
