How Much Do PC and Components Weigh? [Detailed Guide]

In this article, I will answer your questions on the weight of the components of a PC.

The vast majority of people have difficulty not knowing how heavy their computer is when they wish to sell it, position it on a desk, or anywhere else where the weight of their computer is essential.

So let’s see about the weight of different components.

How Much Does a Gaming PC Weigh?

They can be as light as 12 pounds, and those with built-in touchscreen displays won’t require you to bring a mouse or keyboard.

The all-in-one desktop is ready to go at a moment’s notice for shared offices or families or when you need to make a presentation.

Case and power supply are a large part of the weight.

How much pc components weigh 20-30 pounds for a low-end gaming/consumer machine?

A full-size case, multiple GPUs, multiple hard drives, extra fans and/or water cooling, and a large CPU cooler can easily weigh 60-80 pounds.

A gaming computer’s weight can range from 20 to 40 pounds (9 to 18 kg). Although it depends on the case and components used, the average gaming PC (with graphics card) weighs around 31 pounds (14 kg).

How Much Does a PC without GPU Weigh?

AMD’s Radeon Vega integrated graphics perform admirably lower gaming PC price range. And if you play light games with low graphics settings, such as Minecraft, League of Legends, DOTA, and even some AAA titles, the performance of the newer integrated graphics cards will be quite satisfactory.

A desktop PC without a GPU can weigh anywhere from 10 pounds to 30 pounds (4.5 kg – 13.6 kg), depending on the other components. On average, this figure is around 19 pounds (8.6 kilograms).

On average, the processor weighs approximately 2.1 ounces (59.5 grams), but the weight can range between 1.5 ounces and 3 ounces (42 grams – 85 grams). Newer processors are lighter than older ones as time passes, but the difference isn’t significant.

How Much Does a Processor Weigh?

The processor weighs around 2.1 ounces (59.5 grams) on average. However, the weight might range between 1.5 ounces and 3 ounces (42 grams – 85 grams).

Newer CPUs are lighter than older ones as time passes, but the difference isn’t significant. The older Intel processors are likely heavier than recent Ryzen and Intel CPUs.

How Much Does a Graphics Card Weigh?

Although the weight of a graphics card varies according to the number of fans, manufacturer, material, and other factors, the average weight can range from 7 ounces to 3.2 pounds (200 grams – 1.5 kilograms).

As previously stated, the weight of the GPU is determined by several factors.

Let’s take the example of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 Graphics Card.

Weighing in at just under 29 ounces (813g), this card is light for its size, particularly given measurements of more than 11 inches (28cm) long, 4 1/3 inches (11cm) tall, and 1 1/3 inches (3.5cm) wide.

It occupies two full expansion slots and is neither particularly small nor oversized.

In most cases, the more powerful GPU is heavier, as it contains more Fans, better quality, and heavier material… However, this is not always the case.

How Much Does a Motherboard Weigh?

Although the weight of the Motherboard varies depending on the manufacturer, the average Motherboard weighs between 1 and 3 pounds (450 grams to 1.3 kg).

The weight of your Motherboard is also determined by the features of your Motherboard, the release date of the Motherboard, and other factors.

The Motherboard, also known as the mainboard, system board, or simply Motherboard, is the main circuit board in many computers and other electronic devices.

The Motherboard contains several integrated circuits (ICs) that provide the device’s input/output and storage. Since it defines the “base” from which everything else is built, it is often considered “the core” of a modern computer system.

How Much Does a RAM Weigh?

Random-access memory (RAM) weight can range from 1 ounce to 4.5 ounces (28.3 grams – 127.5 grams), depending on the material, heatsink, and manufacturer.

The key reason for the significant difference between newer – more expensive memory and older ddr3 memory is the RGB strip, cooling, and material.

It didn’t matter if every component in the PC was RGB back in the day, but now we have that luxury.

How Much Does a Power Supply Weigh?

The weight of a power supply is determined by its size, manufacturer, and quality. The weight of the Power Supply in most situations ranges from 2.5 pounds to 5 pounds (from 1.13 kilogrammes to 2.26 kilogrammes).

When it comes to power supply weight, the main difference between light and heavy power supplies is the quality and material utilized to manufacture them. Stronger power supplies, as expected, are generally more serious.

How Much Does a Hard Drive Weigh?

A Hard Drive can weigh 1.6 pounds to 13.5 ounces (725 grammes to 380 grams). In most circumstances, the more the HDD storage space, the heavier the hard disc.

Hard disc drives are often made up of several pieces that are integrated. The spindle, platters, read/write arm, and actuator are the four essential components of an HDD.

For example, I compared the most popular high-definition television brands. As previously said, the heaviest was the 4TB HD, which also had the biggest storage space.

The number of platters on a hard drive is determined by its storage capacity, and they are often made of aluminum, glass, or ceramics.

How Much Does a SSD Weigh?

Because SSD is still a relatively new storage solution, there are numerous misconceptions. One of the most prominent of these myths is its weight.

SSDs are much lighter than HDDs, weighing as little as 10 grammes. Depending on the storage capacity and model of the SSD, the weight might range from 6 to 60 grammes.

M.2 SSDs, which typically measure 80mm x 22mm x 3.5mm, are the lightest SSDs on the market. The majority of these SSDs will be under 8 grams in weight.

Another point to mention is that the weight of M.2 SSDs does not rise as storage capacity grows. A 1 TB M.2 SSD may be lighter than a 128 GB M.2 SSD.

SSDs are created from silicon wafers that are processed and fused on a circuit in a number of processes.

In comparison, the weight of a 2.5 inch HDD will be approximately around 115 to 120 grams. A 2.5-inch SSD, on the other hand, will weigh between 45 to 60 grams only.

How Much Does a PC Case Weigh?

The Computer Case typically weighs between 10 and 30 pounds. The weight is also affected by the accessories included in the case. Because each maker creates their case for a specific purpose, the weight may vary. The soundproof case weighs the most.
