CPU - AMD

The CPU (Central Processing Unit) or processor, is arguably the most important component in a computer. It's responsible for processing instructions and controlling the other components. Many CPUs include basic on-board graphics too so you can power a display without needing a separate graphics card. AMD's new performance Ryzen processors offer a wide range of models suited to different tasks and budgets. Low-end, dual-core chips can be had for £25 or even less, but are only well-matched to basic tasks, while high-end Ryzen CPUs are multi-core, high-frequency monsters that can tear through the world's most intensive software. Before buying, ensure you've got a compatible motherboard and a cooler that can take the heat.

Motherboards - AMD

The motherboard is the central hub of a PC, the board to which every other main component connects – CPUs in the socket, memory in the DIMM slots, and GPUs, sound cards and other expansion cards in the PCIe slots. Hard drives, SSDs, optical drives and front-panel ports also connect to it. Motherboards have a huge variety of features so research carefully first. You need to make sure your motherboard will fit in your case and that its socket matches your chosen CPU. Current desktop AMD motherboards have six main sockets: AM1, AM3+, FM2, FM2+, AM4 and TR4, depending on the processor used. The latest Ryzen chips use AM4 while the Threadripper performance monster requires a TR4-based motherboard.

AMD X570 Socket AM4 ATX Motherboards

These motherboards are based on the AMD X570 chipset and are designed for the AMD Ryzen range of CPUs. The X570 is the flagship Ryzen chipset, and so features the highest number of SATA ports, USB ports and PCI-E lanes plus support for StoreMI, a caching technology which fuses together two storage devices into a single volume, intelligently moving data to the faster drive. Choose an X570 motherboard over a X470 motherboard for PCI-E 4.0 support.

Please Note: The graphics outputs that feature on some of the motherboards below are designed for use with AMD processors which feature a GPU integrated within the CPU chip itself. These graphics outputs, such as HDMI, DVI, VGA & DisplayPort will not function unless a compatible CPU with integrated graphics is installed.

Monitors

Computer monitors come in many sizes but their main purpose is to display the graphics emanating from a computer. What they have in common is the LCD or LED technology that powers them. Monitors are usually presented in a widescreen format and generally vary between 23in and 40in. Resolutions can differ, as well, with 1080p and 4K bookending the popular spectrum. Gaming-focussed monitors tend to have higher refresh rates and adaptive-framerate technology, such as NVIDIA G-Sync or AMD FreeSync, which remove the stuttering and tearing you otherwise see, while professional monitors use high-quality IPS panels for colour accurate viewing. Scan's experts are on hand to guide you through the buying process, so give is a call and we'll find a monitor that fits your needs.

USB Pendrives

USB-based pendrives are portable-storage devices that contain flash memory for the ultimate in personal data storage. Today however, these pendrives are around half the size of a pen, or less. They feature USB connectivity for a direct connection to any system with a USB port. Most feature a ring attachment point for your keyring/lanyard strap. Advanced features on some include weather resistant construction, encryption/security and a capless design. Premium pendrives can offer capacities of up to 1TB and super-speedy transfers thanks to USB 3.1 Gen 2 support. Often these drives can sustain over 250MB/s transfer speeds when reading and writing large files.

High Performance USB 3.0/3.1 Portable Flash Memory Drives

The latest revision of the USB standard, version 3.1, doubles the theoretical speed from 5Gbit/s or 625MB/sec to 10Gbit/s or 1,250MB/sec, meaning much quicker data transfers when copying files to and from a USB device such as a pendrive. USB 3.1 devices are backwards compatible with USB 3 and USB 2 ports, but you'll need a motherboard or add-in card that supports USB 3.1 to get the full advantage of the new standard.

Power Supplies

The power-supply unit, or PSU, powers all the components inside your PC. The main thing you need to know when shopping is the approximate wattage your system will consume, so roughly tally up the power consumption of your various components. It is recommended to over-spec a little to ensure reliable operation, and get a little extra for future upgrades. Also check that the PSU comes with enough connections for your build, and that it will fit inside your chassis. Modular PSUs allow you to minimise excess cabling by only having the connections you need attached, meaning your PC will not only look more professional but will also run cooler. The quality of a PSU can be indirectly derived by looking at its 80 PLUS rating, which defines its efficiency, with Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum and Titanium categories indicating ever-increasing power efficiency.

Memory - RAM

Random Access Memory (RAM) is where data the CPU is working with is temporarily stored. More RAM is generally better, although there are diminishing returns above 16GB for consumer PC, while 32-bit versions of Windows only support a maximum of 4GB. Speed, measured in MHz, is another consideration, as is latency, but most importantly memory needs to be compatible with your motherboard: it'll either be DDR, DDR2, DDR3 or DDR4, and modern AMD- and Intel-based PCs use DDR4 memory alone. Smaller SODIMM modules for laptops and mini PCs and ECC registered memory for servers are all available in this category.

DDR4 Single/Dual Channel 3600MHz+ RAM Memory Kits

DDR4 SDRAM is the fastest and most efficient consumer memory available. It's compatible with Intel's Broadwell-E which run in quad-channel and Kaby Lake & Skylake CPUs which run in dual-channel modes.
