The power supply is never the most glamourous component in a computer, but it's undeniably important – after all, your PC won't do much if there's no way for electricity to get to the components.
Power supplies sit quietly in the bottom of cases and extend their cables to every part of the rig, delivering electricity to the motherboard, graphics card, hard disk and more.
Cheap PSUs are obviously tempting, but they're usually a bad idea for several reasons – so we've explored what you should look out for when picking a PSU, and picked out some of our favourites from the huge range we have available.
Enthusiasts spend hours picking parts, but too many people give too little thought to another vital component: their case.
That’s a shame, because cases are important: a good case can make a system easier to build, offer more room for extra components and make your PC run with better temperatures and less noise. And let’s not forget the aesthetics, either – a good case can make your rig look stunning.
We’ve got a huge range of the best computer cases at Overclockers UK – here are some of our favourites.
