BLOG: Why You Should Build Your Own PC

Anyone who isn’t overly familiar with computers and technology might think that building a PC is a skill reserved for computer geeks or rocket scientists. Fortunately you don’t need a degree in robotics to assemble the perfect computer. Many people still flock to high-street stores to purchase pre-builds, even though assembling a computer is now easier and cheaper than ever. Still not convinced? Here’s a few more reasons why building your own rig is the best way to go.


When you buy a pre-built computer, you are limited the type of build you can get. Each PC will have specific components which might not be the right combination for what you need. If you’re just looking for something to complete your work on, then you may not need a lot of power, but if you’re a gamer you will need a more powerful graphics card. Building your own PC allows to customize your build from the ground up based on your specific needs.


Computers can be very expensive, especially pre-built rigs sold by high-street chains. There is a huge market for PC components, which means you can shop around and find the best deal for you. You can save a lot of money by choosing each part individually and deciding what areas of the build you want to spend more money on. Pre-built PCs often include components from more expensive brands, which increase the overall cost. The freedom of choosing your own parts means you can chose products from companies like Data Memory Systems, which offer quality PC parts at a much lower cost.    


No PC lasts forever, and unfortunately your computer will eventually experience some faults. This can be frustrating and expensive if you’re not very experienced with technology. Building your own custom computer can help prepare you for any future breakdowns. Assembling a rig is a learning experience which will make you more familiar with how it works. If you know more about your computer then you’ll be better prepared to fix it if something goes wrong.


The first thing that a lot of people consider when buying a new PC is how it looks. Even though we all know it’s what’s inside that counts, we still want it to look nice. Building your own computer means that you can choose exactly what it looks like, and with hundreds of cases and accessories out there, the sky is the limit.
