build my own

If I'm rich my aim would be to stay rich anyway.

I'd buy one of those insane pre-builts. Even if I were to build it the same way, it wouldn't look as cool as those.

Chase Wood
Chase Wood

I'd still build my own just cause its fun, and adding what you want and customizing it is nice. I would of liked to thrown another 600 in mine just for LED's and extra stuff.

Gavin Evans

This was my argument, I don't think I'm good enough to actually make it look fancy.

Mason Rivera

Build my own. I've never seen a decent prebuilt that doesn't have some stupid decision like time-bomb PSU despite being very expensive

Ian Hall
Ian Hall

I'd buy the parts, assemble it, then pay someone to take it apart and rebuild it, then throw it out and buy a pre-built. I'm rich so I'll do both.

Isaiah Lewis
Isaiah Lewis

Filthy? I dunno probably pay someone to build it to my specs. Company built machines are overpriced like 200-400% and garbage and you'd need to wipe the fucking trash preinstalls anyway.

James Sanchez

I'd buy my own top of the range parts then have someone else build it

You could always pay someone to build it for you.

If I was rich rich I would buy the bare minimum I need. You don't become rich wasting money.

Isaiah Hill

There is shops that build them for you. Costs like a hundred bucks and you dont have to deal with cable managment

Luke Torres

where do the hard drives go?

Jonathan Brooks
Jonathan Brooks

Prebulds lack A E S T H E T I C S, so I would probably select parts myself, but would pay someone to build it.

Hudson Smith

So you're saying if you were a multi-million, spending a few thousand on a PC would do significant damage to your finances?

Julian Russell
Julian Russell

No, but it's an unnecessary purchase, I would and do minimize those.

Landon Clark

Wouldn't matter how much I have/made, I'd build my own.

Joseph Nelson

heh

Justin Thomas
Justin Thomas

I already pay other people to build mine. It's an annoying faff getting everything just right that id rather avoid so long as I can. If I can't afford to pay for it then I probably can't really afford the build at all.

just fuck off with that trashcan

Luis Brown

Build my own.

Custom builds are literally just 7+ piece LEGO sets. If you follow the instruction booklet (or fuck, one of the many youtube videos) you can have it up and running within an hour. You can also customize it however you like.

Prebuilts often have bloatware on them. You also have less customization if you buy it as one big package unless you go directly to a specialist or something.

Brody Scott
Brody Scott

I'm piss poor by your standards and I would still build my own.

If I was rich I would still build it. Rich people don't stay rich if they keep wasting money
And time. Because honestly - you would have to re-do cabling anyways.

Yeah building your own is fun. Honestly the best bit about PC gaming is turning it on for the first time and having everything work and just looking at it for a bit.

It's all downhill from there.

Nathan Russell

i already successfully built a pc, but i would take a computer building course anyway. more knowledge is always good

Some prebuilds are stupid insane and pleasingly aesthetic.
Just look at Pewdiepie's previous computer and his new one.
Holy shit man,

Easton Garcia

I would buy all the parts then pay a professional to assemble it. Are there even prebuilt variants of the "monsterous" tier on logicalincrements?

Thomas Taylor

i'll finally get a decent sized ssd

Xavier Green

I'll stick with what i have. There's no real reason to go full high tier with computers anyway.

Dylan Butler

Build my own, because it's fun

Sebastian Davis

Thanks to cryptofags, it's frequently easier to get more bang for your buck on prebuilts that go on sale. This is probably the one time in computing history where you can get better bargains on a prebuilt then a self-built.

Carson Hughes
Carson Hughes

My mom-and-pop PC shop builds them for free if you buy the parts from them. The build ends up costing about 5-8% more per part, but they include a 3 year warranty on everything and they do a great job. The difference of maybe 50$ is worth it if I don't have to build it and get a warranty.

Angel Long

This holy shit lmao. It's kinda funny.

Jack Anderson

Build. I enjoy the experience of that 1st successful boot too much.
Honestly if I was loaded I'd try and become the ultimate anti-shill YouTube guy. I'd get 30 views but I like messing with computer parts anyways.

Joseph Thompson
Joseph Thompson

holy shit these brainlets. Those are just put together by a person. Are somehow not a person? You're literally saying you're subhuman

Oliver Rivera

holy shit this brainlet. They [patients] are just surgically fixed by a person. Are somehow not a person? You're literally saying you're subhuman

Mason Hernandez

I'd build my own because it's pretty much stupid expensive adult legos.

You don't buy a lego millenium falcon to get somebody else to put it together. Half the fun of getting a new PC is putting it together and booting it up for the first time praying you didn't bend a pin on the CPU socket.

Ryan Cox

Hollow knight has fewer FPS than MGSV on my machine

This is the POWER of Unity(tm)!

Brody White

I'd probably buy a pre-build but not from some mainstream electronic store but from someone who specialises in high end PCs. I wouldn't want to fiddle around with the water cooling and shit.

Caleb Cruz
Caleb Cruz

I'd still build my PC, it's fun.

Carter Brown
Carter Brown

just spent 3k last 2 weeks and got all the parts delivered just now. I'm actually fucking scared to build, despite having the experience to build two before. Also, the downhill backlash you mentioned will be pretty hard after i realize imma only use it for mundane shit.

Chase Harris
Chase Harris

I'd probably build one then buy another prebuilt and buy like 3 monitors.

Carson Ortiz
Carson Ortiz

Probably copy somebody else's build

Owen Cooper
Owen Cooper

I'd buy pre-built from one of those boutique system builders that build really nice, aesthetically pleasing stuff in proprietary cases.

Matthew Long
Matthew Long

If you ever do get some money you should check out northwest falcon. They do premium work for premium prices.

Matthew Sanchez
Matthew Sanchez

With the way individual component prices are going, it'll probably be cheaper to just buy a prebuilt with the hardware you need.

Owen Lopez
Owen Lopez

Well their market is about to die so hopefully this changes soon

Matthew Wright
Matthew Wright

As long as you have warranties and don't overclock or use liquid cooling.

Though if you were rich, you could try them if you want.

Leo Nguyen

As a rich person you don't waste time doing something yourself, you spend more money to waste less time

Colton Sanchez

I'm a povertyfag which is how I learned how to build a PC to begin with but if I were rich then fuck yeah I'd pay someone to do it because fuck installing PSUs.

Hunter Jones

I would purchase a Falcon Northwest Mach V

I would still use a console. I hate using a mouse and keyboard and many exclusives don't get ported to PC.

This. Basically work is what your company says your time is worth. If you are rich, spending an hour or 2 building a PC can be a loss

Jose Lewis

nigger building it is literally half the fun, i'd build my own case too if steel bending/cutting wasnt that expensive

Bentley Edwards

It's because the second chapter of MGSV uses the same frames as the first one.

Cooper Green

I just built a desktop today. Everything brand new. First time in 10 years.

I forgot how fucking annoying it is squeezing shit inside a case, wiring and making sure everything is secure and clean.

Mini itx build with a Corsair water cooler loop is not fucking fun

Next time I'll just pick the parts online and have the goons build it for an extra hundred

Logan Taylor

If you’re over the age of 17 and have glowing neon lights in your PC, you should be ashamed of yourself.

Angel James

This RGB shit is all new to me. Didn't have it when I was a teen.

My new build has fucking RGB lighting on the keyboard, mouse, cooler and gfx. Disabled it all straight away.

Cringe

Logan Adams
Logan Adams

Same. That “gamer edition” shit is beyond cringey and I can’t imagine anyone that isn’t still in high school thinking it looks cool. Also, why does nearly every “gaming mouse” these days look like a fucking transformer?

Kevin Roberts
Kevin Roberts

Was worse trying to find a decent monitor for the odd but of gaming that wasn't red or had shit sticking out of it.

One I got has a big fucking 3D logo on the base

Build your own, same thing with your race car.

There's pride and soul into building things yourself. Even something as simple as a tower build.

people who are filthy rich stay filthy rich because they spend their money conservatively.

people who are filthy rich and spend their money indiscriminately wind up like MC Hammer or Michael Jackson, $200 million in debt.

Andrew Roberts

but building your computer is just as easy and fun as playing with legos, you just need to get the parts you want. and if you are filthy rich it would be easy.

Luke Bell

"""Building""" a PC takes like 1 to 2 hours depending on how much stupid bells and whistles you bought. I don't care how rich I am, I'm not fucking paying someone else to do that.

Of fucking course I would build my own, with the finest hardware available.
What the fuck kind of logic is this even? Prebuilts are trash.
