Computers come in the top 10 devices consumers use to store personal information. People also have become so dependent on technology that they depend on it to provide them information on where to go and eat, navigate, communicate and, nowadays, continue education and work. However, it also poses a great dilemma, causing a user to delay the decision and consider all available data to identify the best option.
Below are the reasons why you should invest in a custom built PC:
1. It allows you to upgrade easily.
Upgrading parts in your computer is as easy as removing an outdated part with a new and upgraded one. It is cheaper than buying a whole new computer. Parts and components of computers are now readily available off the shelf or online.
2. Better airflow and cooling system
Computers built on assembly lines have parts and components packed in tight spaces. This feature affects airflow, and airflow is critical in keeping your computer from overheating. How? Your computer builds up heat as you operate it. If left unchecked, this heat will damage your computer’s hardware. It is essential to also know about cable management because it affects the cooling system of your computer. Cables create obstacles for proper airflow. Customize your case to be able to accommodate enough fans for your activity. It will ensure components will last longer and save you money on repairs.
3. It gives you a choice on the components you will use.
If you go with a custom built PC, you get to decide what brand of components to use. You can opt to use a combination of high-quality components and inexpensive parts depending on the function and performance you want to achieve. You know exactly what goes into your machine which can help you quickly detect any performance hiccup you might experience along the way. It will become effortless for you to change a component when it performs less than you expected.
4. Customize according to your needs.
Manufacturers often install software into the computer which you do not necessarily need. Just like getting a cable plan and you get all the shows which you never watch. A custom built PC will enable you to install only the programs which you will use. This eliminates fluff that takes a lot of disk space and memory which eventually slows down your computer. These fluffs are called bloatware. They usually have tie-ups with manufacturers. In short, they are the applications we uninstall in our phones.
You also get flexibility in the parts and components you will use specific to the tasks or performance you want to get from your computer.
5. Longer warranty
Buying computers or any equipment comes with a warranty. Usually, sellers would give warranty on parts and components for six months to a year. When your computer bogs down, you bring the whole computer to the seller’s shop for fixing. However, when you buy each part and component for your custom built PC, you get warranty for each part and component separately. Manufacturers and sellers give longer warranties for these. You can get three years to six years warranty depending on the part and component.
Building your own computer will definitely cost less than other types of computers because you only put into it what you need. There will be no more fluffs. All other manufacturing costs are eliminated because you are your own manufacturer.
With all the benefits of a custom built PC, what can stop you from building your own computer now? You might just end up loving it.
