Get your money's worth
One of the biggest reasons to build your own PC is cost. Dollar for dollar, your computer will usually cost less - sometimes much less - than if you went to the store or online merchant to get one. Building your own allows you to get more for your money.
Benefits and Advantages
Building your own PC has many benefits if you are willing to spend extra time to DIY right. Not only for cost, but design, look, capability and more. Purchasing from a pre-made selection of computers can sometime leave you wanting more, less, or unhappy. DIY PC building allows you to customize many aspects of your computer.
