    Building a pc made me experience: -Troubleshooting, it can also help in programming and just in general basic problems which includes parts that affects each other -lots of fun, the feeling of fixing a pc, the feeling of building and finishing a pc, and just the thought of that ur all ur hardwork actually payed off is a very enjoyable moment -fixing parts and meeting very knowledgeable people, i love how they share their knowledge while we fix a pc its really enjoyable

    I actually used a company to barebones a comp with a CPU mobo combo for extra ease as i found the price to be comparable to building from total scratch, allowing me to reuse parts from my old comp. I think the points you made here were all dead on. I can relate a story from having bought a dell 710 i had an hdd start to die and the hdd failure was actually handled very fast and easy because they had to send someone to install it but it was preloaded with all the drivers and the os was a nice perk. I think whether to buy or build comes down to how confident you feel in your building and part selection. I will be building full scratch next build but that has been my path towards building.

    I’ve only built one PC. Granted some parts were taken from an existing PC... anywho, when I was looking into my options Build VS prebuilt, I was in a pickle. I knew I wanted at least an RX 580, Ryzen 5 2600, 8gb of ram, ssd, and large hard drive...when I priced it all out it came out to be $800. I got my current pc from bestbuy on a black Friday sale for $599 I believe it was. And it had everything I was looking for. And since I’ve bought it I have made it 16gb of ram, and added a Corsair water cooling AIO. I was happy to save a few hundred bucks. I wanted to build my own, but at the time money was limited. But I got the exact system I wanted. Not to mention the customer service if I needed it (I didn’t I know what I’m doing lol) but it’s nice for that reassurance. So if you can find a good deal in a pre built, I say pre built all day!

    I don’t have a list, but I build pc’s and sell them on Craigslist, facebook marketplace, and offer up for some extra money. And I love it, it is just simply fun to build them, it doesn’t matter if I’m building with a $3000 or $400 budget. Also, if you think age is an issue, I’m 14 and have built dozens of pc’s. All you gotta do is get some hands on experience. Also stop being so scared to build a pc, the hardware is made to last, and doesn’t break so damn easily.

    Reasons to build your own. More choices for personalization, cheaper, don't have to deal with tech support ie Dell/HP etc (though OEM support can be hit and miss), don't have to buy what you don't want/ less bloatware, and having some pride in your own computer. Reasons not to. Warranty s if you're into that/ tech support. Don't want to commit the time. Edit: just watched the video I feel like a parrot now.

    I only have ONE reason why you shouldn't build computers yourself, and it's only gonna apply to office-type settings: You're gonna buy an office full of these things, at a slightly reduced unit cost (which you'll pay back and then some in the 3-4 year service plan), and you're not gonna worry about it. If a machine stops working for some reason, a Dell Droid will be out same day and test every component, replacing whatever's not working without much worry. If you're a big enough company, the user won't even have to wait that long because you'll have swapped their machine for them in even less time. Personal rig? Yeah I'm building that. And I'll be happy to teach you how to do it too. It's so easy, a legally blind albino can do it. Ask me how I know? 😃

    I'll drop my 5 and 2 here I guess, but most are gonna be echos of what was already said in the video 1. Customization - You can truly tune everything how you want it. Looks, performance, noise, everything. That is very nice. 2. Needs - You can shave a few dollars here and there based on what YOU will be using the computer for. 2666 ram is fine if you're casually gaming, or aren't using ram heavy applications. 3. Accomplishment - You know you did the thing, good for you 4. Bragging rights - Let's be real real here, you're gonna flex on your friends, it's gonna happen 5. Budget - You have the power to fine tune your budget to exactly what you can afford, find deals, and piece-meal if you have to 1a. Immediate gratification - It's here, it's now, you can do whatever you wanted to do the day the box is on your doorstep. 2a. Price - Let's be really honest here, some SI's are building the most common builds cheaper than you can build it yourself because they have corporate backing and bulk pricing. You may be able to get cheaper if it is the most popular thing at the time

    Why you should: 1. It is fun. 2. Knowing you built it. 3. Choice or parts. 4. Knowledge and Learning. 5. Buy the parts you want. Why you should Not: 1. See Why You should. 2. See step 1 above. PC parts warranty is not as painful as it use to be, buy from companies like corsair/intel/amd etc, and your warranty is pretty much as good if not better than a pre built system.

Finally my PC got delivered a week later and doesn't boot, had to unclamp and reseat the CPU and then struggle 30min to clamp the heat sink again, and a 3 days later the SSD dies.. Now I'm waiting for over a week for them to come pick it up again.

    ATTENTION 10% of brain used != 10% of brain capacity. This is myth, your brain is segmented into parts and even if 10 to 20 percent is being used the rest has a specific and different purpose which may not apply to the task at hand. Especially when getting an MRI, many people more than likely have decreased brain activity because you're just sitting there with a thing moving up and down and whatnot.

    building computers isn't fun anymore. no game ports and "gaming" is a tired over used redundant farce of a word used to describe computers anymore. It's got RGB therefore its a gaming computer. BFD. I refuse to buy those soulless, diskless, functionless craptastictic silicone garbages. Ten years from now people will call them retro, and like records, DVD;s will once again be in demand when people realize downloadable content is a scam marketing tool that forces people to lose the old and buy the new and new content outside youtube is political pushing bullshit. nope, sorry, no drive, to game port, no choice in sound card... In fact even video cards are getting integrated into the cpu's and calling them some weird thing, and not for function, but to eliminate one more choice from people. It's an outrage. I know it all boils down to economics and MFR;s are even going to push Linux because it's "free," what does "free does not mean free lunch" even mean? it's as stupid as the term "nothing burger." do they mean that no meat whopper that has beef blood in it so it isn't totally meatless? I miss the days when building a computer meant which choice of actual parts do ya want unless you want a mac. When what you put in a computer is optimized for gaming, multimedia, SOHO, DTP, communications, etc. Nope, now it;s just gaming business or budget. and each one is pretty much the same except the fps score. And it seems everyone is happy with that crappy built in ac 97 standard that seems to be so proprietary that you have to beg the board maker for drivers rather than bug the ac 97 nerds. thirty years ago I expected the industry to expand, and usb devices held a brief optimistic hope for that. now it's imploding on itself. there is no longer any real innovation, just lame spartan products that tout smaller faster sleeker, and they are more marketing scams than real forward production.

If the windows apps get told to to be stored on hdd instead of boot I end up having to wipe drives and reinstall windows.

    Great video, Jay. Those are pretty much the same reasons I give others. Another one I would add is time. Some people are so go-go-go that they don't want to spend time putting together a machine.

  • TheXev

    My reasons you should build your own computer: 1. Complete customization. If there is something you don't like, you simply don't buy it. You want more RAM, buy it? You don't like RGB cases, don't buy RGB. You can do things EXACTLY how you want inside of your budget. 2. If you don't need support in the first place. I am more than capable of researching and troubleshooting my own issues and can fix the problem with no tech support required. 3. You like hands-on. Building your own PC is a very hands-on experience, and it can be fun simply doing the build. 4. Getting extra performance from higher-end RAM. OEM's skimp so SO hard on RAM that it isn't even funny, especially laptops. I wanted to buy a 3200MT ram kit for my laptop to get better performance out of the Ryzen 5 3500U APU, but it wouldn't matter because the BIOS won't let me clock the ram higher or customize the timings. On an SI machine, you can get a motherboard that will allow you to do that or a RAM kit that will let you push 3600MT with no problems. RAM selection, more so then any other hardware choice, is far better when you build the machine yourself. 5. IO. It is easier when building your own PC to get exactly what IO you want. I feel most SI machines do not come with enough USB ports... so I can select a motherboard with enough USB, the type of USB I want (say, all USB 3.1 ex), and choose a case that will give me the front USB I want. OEM cases skimp on these things because it cost them extra money. My reasons NOT to build your own computer: 1. Parts are more expensive than ever. I don't mean "we have a $1500 graphic card" or anything like that, but the fact of the matter is that it is nearly impossible to buy purely OEM box parts like in the old days. When I built my first high-end gaming rig in Oct of 2002, I was able to get nearly EVERYTHING except for my graphics card (which I chose to buy in retail box form and get a warranty), as OEM boxed. This meant I was giving up long warranty periods, but I was saving a tremendous amount of money by giving up that warranty. This savings really doesn't exist anymore, as finding OEM boxed CPUs, fans, graphics cards, RAM is next to impossible to find. OEM hard drives are just about the only thing you buy and no one wants an OEM boxed 1-year warranty! I priced my current machine vs a similar SI's when I built it, and the savings weren't that much. I probably saved more money buying a cheap OEM Windows key for $15 than any of the parts inside of my machine. The rise of Newegg and Amazon has actually killed the aftermarket OEM parts market (ala Pricewatch.com). 2. Troubleshooting systems is harder than ever. SI machines are generally well-tested configurations that have been sold to hundreds if not thousands of people, so they have a proven design. These machines are configured to "just work and be stable" right out of the box. If you choose to build your own machine, you may end up in some of the following situations: a) Having to manually configure a RAM kit to make your system stable because the default motherboard safe values simply will not work. b) ex. in a reddit post, someone was going on about AMD's drivers being unstable, but after he tried installing Windows onto a new NVME, everything suddenly started to work!? People are getting angry at entire brands because of one faulty part they can not troubleshoot! If you'd buy a machine, everything should be well tested and proven.

    There is one _really big_ reason why one should build their own computer, and that is the realization that everything you ever interact with electronically is a computer with its own specialty and merit. If after building a few machines one learns about virtual machines, they may certainly want to try building their own miniature mainframe for the house which doe everything and then some, but then it becomes a software learning issue for people who are not intimate with open-source kernels like Linux.

    Five reasons for DIY build; 1) satisfaction, there's a lot to be said for making something from scratch 2) understanding; you learn what the parts do, and appreciate their impact on the build 3) effort, be it a cobbled together budget box or a high-end benchmark crushing machine, the 'built not bought' mentality is there 4) Customisation; you're fitting bits together based on selection, do you want to run a video editing machine, a casual gaming rig, something your folks can operate, part choice to suit the needs plays into this 5) Flexing; I've known gamers that could beat me senseless in any game, but if something fails, they are stuck, while I just troubleshoot my way to smooth computing. All their skills are for naught if they can't keep their machines going. Two reasons against; 1) A lot of 'for gamers' machines are reasonable, hook it up and you're good to go for popular titles. perfect for the twitch streamers out there. 2) When picking a supplier, there is an appreciable difference between the low / mid / high range of machines. you get warranty, no effort assembly and value for dollar, why build when a regular box will do the job? Al told, I'm in camp 'build it' but there are a lot of buyable machines that perform well with a minor upgrade, benefiting from being mass-produced.

    The last one is hitting me a bit hard right now, but frankly it's part of the fun. I'm putting together a list of components for a new build, and right now I'm agonizing whether or not to go with a 3700X or a 3900X (the performance difference between the 3700X and the 3800X doesn't seem big enough to be worth it)... I can afford to go with the 3900X, but it will mean a better PSU than the one I already own and was planning to go with might be necessary, which will bump the price up. Ok, not too bad, but then the system may need a better cooler than the stock one to handle the higher thermal output of the 3900X, which makes the build price go up even further.... And for all that, the GPU its' being paired with is a 1660Ti, which I already own. Maybe I'll decide to upgrade that at the end of the year, which means it might be worth it, but maybe not.... So, dilemma is, build a boss system that's GPU bound but can be upgraded even further, or a cheaper system that is well balanced but may need replacing a bit sooner.

    If you do your research you'll be the first person to know what's wrong with your system. So typically repair costs for those that make their own computers are much lower.

    I’ve built two PCs in my life now... Ryzen 3600 / RX 5700 just a few months ago Previous one was also an AMD K6 200 MHz with a 3DFX voodoo 1... Overclocked them both, the video card to 57 MHz if I recall...

    Thanks to Jay, Paul, and Kyle for giving me the knowledge and guidance to build my first PC a year and a half ago! If it wasn't for you guys I never would have had the knowledge, nor the courage to build my own.

    the easiest way to get the best pc build for your money is to set a budget and ask someone who is a pro in pc stuff to suggest [for noobs]. Now if you want to build with second-hand stuff then first go see a doctor, check your blood pressure and heart condition cause this ain't for the weak minds. Or just buy the pc of your rich friend

    Shoulda opened up the unit and jumped the compressor wires so it just ran regardless of what the thermostat told it to do.

    Five reasons to build your own: 1. You have full control over everything, and if you're willing to do a little shopping, can get some screaming deals 2. It helps you understand the components a bit more 3. It's become very simple, giving you something you can take pride in as you use it 4. It helps remove some of the "fear". When you've put it together taking the side panel off to dust it out loses its fear factor 5. Updating down the road becomes easier and easier Why not build your own: 1. Support. You're on your own and if you don't have spares, you're suffering from a downed system until you can get the parts repaired or replaced 2. It is not a quick process if done well or with care. It takes some time, far far more than simply taking something out of a box, plug it in, and following on-screen instructions. It is not for people who see it as a plain tool and just need something simple.
