You don't want to buy a pre-built.

Edit: Did I read correctly that you don't trust yourself to "hook up" an external HDD?? You literally just plug it into a USB port and wall outlet (if it requires a power supply). If you can't manage that I don't know what to say.


Apparently you read wrong, he meant internal HDD.

But actually a lot of high end machine do comes with higher capacity HDD and SSD together. Almost all of the prebuilts you find in stores are not high end machines. It's just all marketing words to make you think it is high end.


nope tc said they donot trust themselves to even hook up and external HDD

I I just don't trust myself with taking out and replacing the internal hard drive, or with hooking up an external hard drive for that matter.

It doesn't take that much to educate yourself on how to install stuff. I'm not a genius by any stretch but I managed to put together a system after a few weeks of research. After a couple more weeks, I was confident enough to start overclocking, and a few more weeks and I went all out with RGB fans and a fan controller and RGB hub. Next year, I want to set up a custom loop and I'm taking my time to do more research. For installing a simple thing as a mechanical hard drive (or SSD), you could learn how to do that with confidence in less than 15 minutes. If you really wanted to take your time, spend an hour watching several different videos.

Find a vendor that let's you customize what you want and they build it for you.

Don't get it from ibuypower or cyberpower. By the time they actually finish building your system, you could have researched how to do it yourself and done it with better parts for cheaper. Or you could pay even more and get it "rushed". But whatever you do, don't buy the "game ready" instant ship systems as those things aren't even tested (I have my own personal horror story which ended in three weeks wasted while I did my own research and built my own system after finally getting my refund). Also, don't fall for those stupid DIY price vs their price. Some of the parts on their lists are totally inflated to make it look like they are giving you a deal. ibuypower claims that the ASUS ROG Maximus XI Hero is $390 for the ELIBG212 system! It's a sub $300 board that is currently $282. Their CBIBG204 system claims that the Intel 660p 1TB is $210!! It's $99. You could get a 2TB model for under $200. Those f***ing liars. The LCIRG202 system says that the Ryzen 7 2700X is $330? And 16GB of DDR4 2666 is $200?!?! You have to be kidding me, it's more like $70... And again with the Intel 660p. My god you are saving $500 by looking at their bulls*** price list. Go buy from them!

Seriously it’s as easy as people say, it’s just like a big Lego set.

Open up your case and install a 2 TB internal hard-drive. It really is so simple its childsplay. All you have to do once you've hooked it up is format the 2 TB hard-drive so its readable by the computer as a normal drive.
