My project is on game design. My topic and research is on how game design is used in the education and medical fields. My product was building and designing a gaming computer. This will allow me to better understand how the games will interact with the gaming computers and I will now have a computer to design and test my games on.
The process of building a Gaming PC
First, I researched what parts I needed to build the PC. This was not an easy task. My initial budget was $600. In researching I realized in order to build a computer with the specifications I wanted I was going to have to exceed my budget.
Another difficult task was researching which components could be used together such as CPU, Motherboard and RAM compatibility. This can be especially difficult when building a budget gaming computer. Once I received all the components I worked with my facilitator to help me understand how all the components are put together. It took us several hours to connect everything and install the operating system and update all of the device drivers.
During my research of building my gaming computer I learned about how compatibility is important in motherboards, processors, RAM, and graphics cards. The first step is deciding on the type of processor you are going to use which are AMD and Intel. Depending on which processor you choose changes which motherboards and RAM you can use.
I had to learn which motherboards worked with the processor I chose and which type of memory I could use. I also had to make sure the graphics card was compatible with the motherboard and power supply. I had to make a few changes during the process because I ran into compatibility issues. Running into these issues helped me understand and learn the compatibility process.
I feel very accomplished that I have learned the process of designing and building a successful gaming computer. I now feel confident that if I ever need to build another gaming computer I can do it on my own.
What I learned
I learned that I am really interested in the game design career. I am looking to take a game design course over the summer to make sure this is what I would like to major in college.
This shows how my computer compares to other computers around the world.
