Would it be fair to say that building your own PC has never been easier? Granted, something like the above can prove to be quite intricate, yet for most users it is possible to put together a highly capable system using only a few components.

My own machine, which has served me well for a good number of years, was built using just half-a-dozen individual parts excluding the chassis. There's the CPU, CPU cooler, motherboard, memory kit (two modules, which I'm counting as one component), SSD and power supply. And that's your lot.

How about you? Do you consider your current build to be simple or complex? To find out, we're asking: how many individual components are in your PC? Let us know the count, and what the parts are, using the comments facility below.

Much simpler these days. MB + CPU + Cooler + GPU + 2 x M.2 SSD's + 4 x 16gb RAM and a USB 2 Header, oh & a couple of case fans. thats it.


All the usual components but with a bit of tidying up to do that i've been meening to do for the last few month. Only non standard computing component would be the cathodes that I've added.
Usual components for me but I have 1 SSD for Windows and then 2 SATA for media and games etc and a few extra fans in the case
Are we counting each watercooling fitting separately, each screw separately, and so on?

Gets interesting with water cooling added to the mix. I'm counting each component as a separate purchase. So a lot more components for custom loops, as opposed to an AIO.
