Why Building Your Own Computer Is the Way To Go

By on August 20, 2013

You have probably heard someone say that it is always the first step that is the hardest. Regardless of the situation, it is indeed the first step that seems to be the most difficult. It takes a lot to make that first step, to make that first move and the same thing can also be said with the process of upgrading your old desktop computer. There will come a time when you really have to retire your old desktop computer and go buy a new one but for some, the process can be quite difficult. This is especially true for those who have separation anxiety issues or those who have formed strong attachments to their computers.

Why Building Your Own Computer Is the Way To Go

There are so many computer brands, kinds and types you can choose from and they actually make the process of upgrading more difficult. There are people who do not do well in choosing when they are faced with too many options. If you are one of them, you might want to just custom build your own desktop computer. Sure, buying a ready to use, complete computer system is easier and hassle free but there is a certain kind of rush that setting up your own desktop brings. Assembling your own PC isn’t as complicated as some people make it to be and to further convince you here are some things that might just persuade you into setting up your own:

The Gift of Performance

Each and every one of us has our own individual needs and requirements. Conveniently, pre-built computers were set up to cater to the general needs of the consumers but what if you are a computer user who has very specific requirements that pre-built computers fail to provide? Assembling your own may just be your best option. Since you, as a computer user, know what you need and what you require, setting up your own computer is the wisest thing you can do. You get to choose the specific parts of the computer that will fit your needs and usage which in turn will make your computer function precisely the way you need it to work. If you use your computer for basic applications like VoIP calling or writing reports, a standard processor and RAM will suffice but if you often use your computer for heavy computer tasks like editing videos or mixing audio, going for a bigger RAM and a faster processor would be the best thing to do.

The Peace Extended and Extensive Warranty Provides

You may be a little pessimistic and probably do not want to think about it especially when you just bought a brand new desktop computer but thinking about its warranty in case of a break down is something most of us cannot escape. Once again, assembling your own computer trumps pre-built computers in terms of warranty. Pre-built computers have only one specific warranty coverage when assembled computers have separate warranties for every part. Computer users who have assembled units enjoy the benefit of temporary part replacements whenever a part breaks down or fails while it is being sent for warranty repair or replacement. For pre-built computers, you may have to send the whole package in case something goes wrong which will leave you computer-less for quite a long time. This can be frustrating and utterly inconvenient especially for those who need to use their computers day in and day out.

Bragging Rights

Building your own computer may require more time and effort from your end but you will surely feel like a million bucks once you have successfully set up one, all on your own. You earn the bragging rights of having built a computer that is custom-built for your needs.
