Reasons Why You Should Build Your Own PC

custom pc buildOn the fence about building your own PC or purchasing a prebuilt system? Building your own PC might seem daunting but it’s easier than you would think and as long as you follow the instructions, you’ll have a new custom PC in no time!

Cost-Efficient

An entry level custom PC only costs around $300-$400 and depending on your needs, building a gaming PC could cost you anywhere between $600-$800. Even if this sounds expensive, in the world of computers it’s actually quite affordable! When you build your own PC, you’re also able to pick and choose the components that you want to use instead of opting for a pre-built system and spending hundreds of dollars on upgrades!

Easier to Upgrade Components

Custom PCs are extremely simple when it comes to the components that they utilize. If you want to upgrade any of the components in yours, replacing it for a new one is quick and easy. Typically its as easy as popping the current component out and place in the new piece. For those individuals that are avid gamers, upgrading your system every few years is recommended.

Superior Cooling Systems

The cooling systems that are part of a pre-built system aren’t always efficient enough for gamers and are typically crammed into a small space, making them less efficient. When building your own PC, there are more cooling system options available with the option to have several fans or even liquid cooling components. When you have a custom cooling system in your computer, the air flow through the system will be better and will save you more money in the long run.

Higher Quality Parts

Even with brands that are known for being high quality, that doesn’t mean they are built with high-quality parts. By building your own PC, you know exactly what parts are going into your computer and you’re able to pick the ones that you prefer.

Better Warranties

Most pre-built systems have a general one year warranty, which sounds awesome but they’re typically inconvenient and require you to go periods of time without your computer. By purchasing the various components for your PC separately, you’re able to have individual warranties on each part and when anything goes wrong, you can simply take the part out and send it out for repairs. Most individual components have 2+ year warranties, which is extremely convenient!
