Why Build Your Own Gaming Computer?
Who Doesn’t Want a Computer Manufacturer to Know!
Computer Gaming – Manufacturers don’t want you to know how easy it is to build computers because they make a living selling complete computers. The truth is that manufacturers focus on selling computers with overall low price tags to lure people to buy. They use the processor and software as the main selling points. In most cases other than processors and maybe graphics cards you don’t know what components they actually use. Alienware is one of the rare exceptions.
They tell you the most, what component parts they use. However, this does not mean that this is the best component of the market. Every manufacturer gets regular visits from salespeople who convince them that they have to use their products. Just because a company gives them the best offer for a power supply that allows them to increase profit margins on the computers they sell doesn’t make it the best power supply. This often leads to the use of lower products for profit.
Benefits of Building Your Own Computer
By building your own computer, you are guaranteed to get the best quality because you have painstakingly researched each component. If you’ve ever wondered why your store-bought computer games with the top graphics cards and ultra-fast CPUs are still having trouble running newer games, it’s probably because they keep you stuck with lower power supplies, cheaper motherboards, RAM inadequate, and the list goes on. In my mind, it makes sense to build your own computer.
Assurance and Technical Support
If you are worried about guarantees, you don’t need to worry. In most cases, you can get a factory warranty on every component you buy. As for technical support, I have had more luck getting questions answered through friendly forums that help on the internet than I have ever gotten from the technical support path. Not to mention you don’t have to pay to wait.
Upgrades do not hurt and fast
When you build your own computer upgrade it’s very easy. You have combined it so that replacing the hard drive or changing the graphics card is very easy. For example, I just upgraded my graphics card. It took longer to pull everything from the back of my tower than to swap the graphics card. All in all, I was up and running with the new driver installed in about 10 minutes. If you are impatient as I bring your machine to the store to update it is not worth waiting for.
