When Not Any Gaming PC Will Do


I want to build a custom gaming PC. What do I need to know?


If you’re a gamer, a streamer, a photo editor, or just want the most awesome custom-built computer to have bragging rights with your friends, there are some things you need to know about building your own gaming pcs.


The Parts of a Computer Build:

  • Case

  • Cooling

  • Graphics Card

  • Sound Card

  • CPU

  • RAM

  • SSD- or Hard Drive

  • Networking Card

  • Power supply

  • Monitor

  • Peripherals: keyboard, mouse, speakers, etc.

Affordable Solutions for Your Gaming PC Needs

We know what parts you’ll need and where to get them right now, even with supply issues due to COVID-19. We live for gamers who have put thought into their custom pc build and power users who want something unique because what you want does not happen in a big box store.


We love to ask questions that you may not have thought of...

AMD or Intel processor, and what speed? Do you want RGB lights that can be customized with a remote and flash with that one-of-a-kind case? What games do you play and what are the specs so we can get you the proper GPU (or at least the perfect one available)? Do you want the latest and greatest graphics for blistering frame rates… Or can we find a graphics card that keeps the cost of your build reasonable and still give you the performance you are looking for?


Is your head spinning yet?

Are you going to be streaming or video or photo editing? Do you have a budget and want to add or upgrade later to keep your rig relevant? We recommend solid-state drives to run your computer with a backup hard drive to save games, videos, and pictures. Ethernet or Wi-Fi? What about the monitor (one or two)? Keyboard? Mouse? Speakers? Headset? Desk Mat?


I know it’s a lot of questions.

To get your build tuned into your needs and wants we need to ask many questions. Maybe you don’t know exactly what you need. Maybe you can picture it, but you have no idea how to get it? That’s what we live for... We ask the right questions so you can go home with the custom computer that performs exactly how you want without regrets because life is too short to have regrets!


Stop in and visit.

So when you get a clear picture of YOUR custom computer, stop in and visit. It really is easier to showcase what we can do in person. However, if that is not possible visit our request a quote webpage to let us know what you are looking for.


Get a quote.

We will put together a quote for your approval. If we need to adjust for a budget, we can do that too. We are here to work with you, but aren’t afraid to let you know when your dreams may need to be adjusted for pricing, part availability, shipping, and all those other pesky real-world issues.


So, what are you doing still sitting there reading this? Do you know where we are located? Need directions? Check out our Facebook page to view some of the custom builds we have already completed. Come Visit Our Store and let’s have a conversation about what your computer needs are right now.
