Few things are as disappointing to a gamer than being locked out of the newest release because your computer just isn’t powerful enough. When you buy a pre-built computer, you’re generally getting one designed for standard activities rather than for the RAM and graphics needs of today’s PC games.
When buying an “off the shelf” computer, you’re essentially bound to multiple performance parameters with not much room to grow. That means that you could end up buying a new PC to accommodate the stunning visuals of the latest Assassin’s Creed, only to find that it can’t handle the advanced graphics of the next release just a couple of years later.
A majority of Americans (60%) play video games daily and 56% of them play multiplayer games weekly.
When it comes to gaming, a rich, immersive experience with great graphics is desired, but it’s also crucial to have lightening-fast responses without any lag time (no one wants to leave their buddies hanging in a battle).
Unfortunately, not many pre-built computers can handle both today’s and tomorrow’s gaming requirements, which is why many gamers turn to PC custom builds to give them the power they need along with the flexibility to keep up with gaming technology.
Benefits of Investing in a Custom-Built Gaming PC
Many gamers dream of having a custom-built PC, but a couple of key reasons hold them back:
- They’re afraid of paying a higher price
- They don’t want to try to put it together themselves
When you look at the speed of game development and the fact that VR and AR are breaking into the market as well, you could end up having to buy 2-3 different pre-built computers just to play the games you want to for the next 5-7 years. But if you’ve invested in a custom gaming PC, it can have upgrade flexibility built in, so you actually end up spending less money in the long run.
You can get a custom build done by our experts at Tech Help Services in Dunirk NY. We’ll help you choose the right parts for your needs and put it all together for you, so you’ll have peace of mind that everything will work properly.
Here’s why a custom build is the way to go for your next gaming PC.
Get the Power You Need
You’re not locked into a specific processor and graphic card combination when you get a custom build, you can pick and choose the best combination of parts to give you the power you want.
Often PC manufacturers make agreements with certain hardware providers, which reduces your options. You have full customization freedom when your computer is being built from scratch so it can handle everything you need it to
Reflect Your Individuality
Let’s face it, most of us spend more time with our PC than we do anywhere else, so why shouldn’t it be a reflection of your personality? Instead of just a black or grey tower, you can let your creativity run free… red racing stripe or purple and silver backlighting… the sky’s the limit.
If you’re investing in a gaming computer with top-notch performance, it should also be one that looks exactly the way you want.
Flexibility to Expand
It’s not uncommon to hit a brick wall with an off-the-shelf PC when it comes to upgrading. They often have limited memory expansion or other hardware limitations. When building your very own custom PC, you can ensure there is room to grow when that next super-realistic, hardware-demanding game that you just have to play is released in a few years.
Pay Only for the Hardware & Software You Need
When you buy off the shelf, inevitably, you’ll be paying for some of the bloatware that’s on there as well as potentially for parts you don’t need. A custom-built PC allows you to be in complete control. You can install only the software you want and aren’t paying for any unnecessary components.
Purchasing a pre-built computer usually means you get a limited warranty that will cover the entire computer and what’s inside. But with a custom built, you get all the individual parts warranties, which are often for a longer term and give you many more options than just a single all-in-one warranty.
If something goes wrong with a particular part, you can just send that part back to the manufacturer, rather than having to bring in your entire computer.
Better Performance & Reliability
When your computer is being custom built, every component is being checked and tested extensively as it’s being put together. You get a level of individual attention that you won’t find with an off-the-shelf system.
Plus, if you ever need to bring your computer in to us for a checkup or upgrade, we’ll know every inch of it and the parts it has, since we put it together for you.
