Top 5 Reasons Why You Should Build Your Own PC in 2018
Sucks to be on the edge of the cliff of finally building your own PC with fear and doubt latched on your back, right?
You don’t need a handful of reasons to back your dreams of finally building your own PC. Here are the top 5 reasons that converted people just like you and finally living the dream.
It’s Very Cheap
Building your own PC is very cost-efficient. You spend fewer dollars if you choose to build your own PC compared to buying a prebuilt gaming rig. On top for that, the performance difference is very noticeable.
It’s true that you get good deals when you’re lucky enough, but you still get lower quality components. It’s what prebuilt gaming rigs are – they may not cut corners on processors or graphics card but the power supply usually is put at stake.
In fact, you can check out prebuilt gaming computers right now and you’d find unbranded power supplies in it.
…and that’s something you should never compromise or face serious consequences.
You Get No Compromise in Performance
“Good value for the price” or “bang for your buck”.
For the price you’d pay for a prebuilt gaming PC, you get better performance if you build the rig yourself. There won’t be any compromise in performance and you can guarantee it will perform just the way you want it too.
Or if you’re lucky enough, you can get great deals online and spend it on other hardware or components to even further your rig’s capability.
Easy to Upgrade and Future Proof
When you build your own computer, you will bear more knowledge about the idea as a whole – which makes it easier for you to upgrade in the long run.
Upgrading your computer will be easier and cheaper, too.
Building your own PC will most likely be not just about building one that’s only good for a couple of months. With how technology advances, you’d surely want to choose the right components that will give you the benefit of upgradeability and future-proof.
Future-proofing your gaming rig isn’t that hard at all. You just need to know which parts you should get.
Take a look at this computer by WePC – it has a Ryzen 3 1200 processor and an MSI A320M PRO-VHL motherboard. This motherboard is compatible with the 1st Ryzen generation so you can choose to upgrade to a Ryzen 5 1600 or even a Ryzen 7 1700X if you want.
Or even better, you can upgrade the graphics card if you wish to experience better graphics output and more FPS count without any worries about compatibility.
Overall, it gives you the ease of upgrade and all the future-proofing you need.
When you purchase a prebuilt gaming computer, the OS is usually preloaded with files and applications to advertise their “channel partners”.
While it’s true that you can have them removed yourself – it still is a tedious task, especially if things go haywire that you’d have to do another fresh OS install.
Most of the time, you don’t have a choice because most of these prebuilt gaming computers come with an OS installation disc, even though discs aren’t that ideal these days.
Deciding to build your own gaming PC gives you all the freedom you need and a decision to choose only the necessary files you will be needing – saves time and space.
This is the best part about building your own PC.
Aside from the fact that you have all the bragging rights to tell your friends that you built your own gaming PC, you get the best warranties on every single component.
Most components have a 2- or 3-year warranty while quality hardware usually comes with a 5-year warranty. What’s even better is that RAMs usually have a lifetime warranty.
You won’t have to send the entire rig to the store if things go south – it’s just too much of a hassle. All you need to do is pry your rig open, remove the damaged/faulty hardware and have it sent back to the seller for a replacement.
What Are You Waiting For?
For some who’s really new to building, this may come as a challenge but like anybody else, we all started out knowing nothing. What’s more, building a PC isn’t as complicated as rocket science.
Now you have these things in mind, leave the fears and doubts behind and start living your dream like everybody else!
