Washington DC ATX Computer Cases – Choosing An ATX Computer Case, Washington DC
If you are considering building your own computer one of the first things you will need to purchase is an ATX (Advanced Technology eXtended) computer case. An ATX computer case, also known as a computer chassis, is the exterior covering that contains most of the components of a computer that is made to ATX industry standards. The ATX standard is a format that is set for manufacturers of computer hardware to ensure interoperability. The good thing about ATX cases is that they often times come with an ATX power supply but you can also purchase one separately if you choose. An ATX power supply will fit in any ATX case.
For those who are ready to start building your own computer or if you are just interested in changing the case on your computer, it’s important to know how many internal and external bays you will need because they vary by case. You need to choose one that will accommodate your desired setup. Too often people will go and purchase an ATX case that has the flashy lights they like without realizing that there are other things to take in to consideration beyond style and color.
Even though a case is one of the first things that you will need when building your own computer, you first have to consider what you plan on installing inside of it. One of the first things that you need to consider is the type and brand of motherboard you want to install. The two most common motherboards are ATX and Micro ATX, and with Micro ATX being smaller than the ATX motherboard your case size could be different depending on which one you choose. You will also need to take in to consideration the number of bays that you will need for other hardware such as Hard Disk Drives, Optical Drives, and Memory Card Slots.
