For a player, what can be more satisfying than building your own gaming computer? In fact, the only way to get the best out of your computer and maximize your gaming experience is for you to build it yourself. However, there are tightly guarded secrets between computer stores that they don’t want you to know, because they will affect their profitability greatly. This article will reveal the secrets that all players need to know.
It’s very easy to build your own gaming computer.
If everyone knows how easy it is to build a computer, then no one will buy in computer stores. This is why most computer retailers tell you that it is very problematic and complicated to build your own and that it is better to buy one off the shelf. Actually, it only took my 10-year-old son an hour to figure out how to build a computer. How much time do you think you need?
It’s much cheaper to build your own game computer than to buy one off the shelf.
Keep in mind that the main goal of the computer store is to get the maximum benefit from you, not the quality of your gaming experience. As such, never expect a cheap gaming computer from computer retailers. Occasionally, computer stores may pack their computers at a low price to entice you to buy. The fact is that you won’t receive the quality component that your price is paying. Most parts of the computer will not be suitable for the use of games. You can power the latest CPU on the market, but the power supply, graphics card, motherboards, and memory are parts that become obsolete very quickly. If you’re patient enough to compare prices and look for the parts you want, you can save up to 30 – 50% of what you’ll pay in retail stores.
Available computers are not upgradeable
Building your own computer allows you to choose parts that can be upgraded in the future. Available computers don’t and retailers don’t say anything about it. Most available computers are using parts that will become obsolete in a year or two and the only option you have then is to buy them another computer again.
You don’t need extended warranties and technical support
Your computer retailers will definitely sell you the benefit of having extended warranties and technical support because they know that most of the time, they won’t notice and it’s a pure benefit to them. By buying one, you are betting that your product will break, that the extended warranty will cover the damage, and that repairing the product will cost more than you paid for the extended warranty. In that case, why bother buying from them in the first place? When you build your own gaming computer, every piece comes with a warranty. Even if it breaks down, you just have to change the individual part instead of the whole computer. This is much cheaper than what you pay for the extended warranty. In addition, the useful life of a computer system is usually 3 to 5 years. The moment your entire computer system breaks down, it is also time to get a new one, as all parts of your computer will be obsolete by then.
The only way to get the best out of your computer, whether it’s the cost or the performance of the games, is to build your own gaming computer. Computer retailers keep quiet about this fact and try to convince you to buy them. If you are serious about gaming, never let computer retailers stand in your way of owning your best gaming computer.
