Hey guys! Well I was going to just go ahead and order a custom build computer from CyberPC, but than I thought, "What if I could build my own computer, and save some money!" Well... I searched Newegg and what I saw was really disappointing. The difference was only a mere $80...
Here's the CyberPowerPC Rig:
Case: * Azza Hurrican 2000 Full Tower Gaming Case with 4 Hot Swappable HDD Cage & (4) 230MM Fans
Extra Case Fan Upgrade: Maximum 120MM Case Cooling Fans for your selected case
NOTE: The PSU is also better in the Cyberpowerpc, includes overclocking, care features. Overclocking is $50, the care features are $40 total... CypowerPC also has way better speakers, has a video-camera, and a mouse...
Did I mention... Free shipping...
So why exactly do people recommend to build your own computers... from what I've observed ordering them is way cheaper!
So basically my question is, is there a reason for me to go ahead and build it myself...?
Because it's fun! You pick exactly the components you want and are not paying for options you don't need. Normally the quality of components is better when you build your own, especially when you are talking high end components.
Low end, budget computers are cheaper if you buy them pre-built.
For the same price I'd build my own computer, that way if something breaks or goes wrong with it, I've built it myself and know how to fix it. It gives you your own personal touch to your own computer. I always take pride and can say hey I built my own computer rather then paying someone else to put it together.
Alright... so say... I do take in the fun factor... and build it myself... I'm so freaking scared though. I've never built a computer before. I mean I know a lot about computers... but as to put them together, I've never done it! The reason I made this thread though, was because people say that it's cheaper to build your own... this "research" took me like 5 hours... And I was hoping that it would be true =0. Arghhhh
