Ultra Computer Build




This instructable will teach you how to build a basic computer. It will go over what parts you need, how to install the parts, and what order you should assemble the computer.


Step 1: Before You Begin...

Before you begin your computer build, make sure you have all of the following parts:



Graphics Card


Power Supply


Step 2: Step 1: Motherboard and CPU

Start with your Motherboard. Place it on top of your safety mat and box for assembly. Start by placing your AMD processor into the chipset. Make sure it is lined up correctly. Use your Thermaltake heat sync and CPU fan and attach it on top of your processor.

Step 3: Step 2: Graphics Card & Ram

While keeping your motherboard on its box, plug your EVGA GeForce GT 610 graphics card into the PCIe slot. After you do that, add your PNY 4GB DDR3 RAM card to the motherboard.

Step 4: Step 3: Test IT

After you have installed your CPU, Ram, and Graphics Card, you will need to plug in your Orion 400W Power Supply into your motherboard. Make sure your motherboard and Power Supply are both on the static mat. Add the motherboard speaker that came with your case. Turn on your computer by connecting the two power button connectors. If there is a beep from the speaker you did everything correctly. You can also plug your VGA cable from into your motherboard and monitor to make sure your graphics card is installed correctly.

Step 5: Step 4: Adding Components to the Case

You will need to add your 1TB Hard Drive to your case. Add the stand screws to you case and screw in the motherboard. Place the power supply in and screw that in as well. Plug your HDD into the the SATA 0 on your motherboard and into the power supply.

Step 6: Step 5: Other Connectors

You will need to plug in your case USB's, HD Audio, and the case buttons. The connectors from the case are labeled so all you need to do is match them up. You will also need to add your 4-pin power supply extender.

Step 7: Step 6: Final Step

Now all you have to do is put your side panels back on your case and install your OS!!!

    This computer is very poor! The power supply is awful, never use non-branded psus such as that as it will result in a dead computer, the CPU needs very specific voltages and a cheap PSU will not provide this well. Also the motherboard has very little upgradability and will need to be replaced in the future. Use a website such as pcpartpicker.com in future to find quality parts at good prices.

    It´s better to use a PSU with bronze+, silver+ or gold+ rating, it is much more efficient, But overall a nice PC!

    Such PSUs are more energy effective but even if they're better, this isn't a criteria of quality.
