Local PC repair shops should be able to help me build a PC if I bring them all the parts? How much does this service usually cost?


You'd have to call them and get a quote. I had one built and they didn't charge much for the service. The bonus is that they would be able to test for bad parts.

I would at least look up guides on Youtube. You will need to take it apart and clean it (though I find you only really need to take out the GPU and the fans, you won't need a full disassembly) over time as dust will become a problem. It's a good idea to get to know what is going on inside your PC, even if you don't build it yourself.

I'd strongly advise against buying a pre-built. They usually use cheap parts like the motherboard and PSU. Case in point - I had a pre-built with SLI. When I went to use it, the motherboard they had put in wasn't compatible with SLI technology, so it didn't work. Also, when I first had it, they did a recall on the systems as someone had f***ed up and caused a potential fire hazard. Total mess.

While I would build myself, I would pay someone to do the delidding process. And they do that with the silicon lottery.

Between that and googling best builds under (whatever your budget is). And then roll your own.

I rolled a 5.


I rolled a "made in Vietnam". Woops, that's my phone's stylus.

But yeah, normally I'd say build your own or pay someone to put it together for you. But with the current GPU prices, prebuilts are looking good - as long as you don't buy cheap junk blindly.

Dont forget you can also steal games on PC with ease. Ok so companies lose money but its their fault for expecting money for their work.

https://pcpartpicker.com/ - Checks for compatibility etc (doesnt tell you if you need cords / connectors though)

http://www.logicalincrements.com/ - Some people don't like this site. I could see it as a good starting point for some parts that newer builders don't know a lot about, like motherboards. It's also a decent starting point to see some of the newer items / models if you are following pc part tech 24 / 7
