Saving hundreds or thousands of dollars building your own computer.
When you buy a computer at the store, or have one built for you, the company that builds the computer pads the price so they can make a profit. This is true no matter if you buy from a large manufacturer, or your local computer shop. Building your own computer you can cut out the middle man. Depending on how much performance and features you need the saving range from hundred to thousands of dollars. Take a look at this page to see the savings of building your own vs. a store bought PC. With all the money you'll save building your own PC, you'll have more money to spend on the other computer necessities once it's done, such as ink cartridges, mouse pads, and a nice keyboard.
Customize your computer
True customization is something you can only get if you build your own computer. You get to choose how much performance you need. You decide what features are important to you and you make the choice. There is something empowering about knowing that you choose every single part yourself and you put it all together. If you would like a starting point for choosing your parts we have several parts lists with a wide range of costs. You can choose to build one of these exact computers, pick and choose parts from the lists or build your own list from scratch.
