I am in the market for a brand new gaming PC—thank you Kirk Hamilton—so today I decided to start browsing a bit. And I discovered the glory of video game PC branding. It’s sort of like Taco Bell crossed with Hot Topic.

Schreier, no! Don’t buy a pre-built machine!

Get yourself a buddy who’s built a machine before (or do it yourself if you’re feeling brave), head over to Newegg or another parts wholesaler, and part out your desired rig.

You’ll save at least 40% (and likely more) off purchasing a pre-built machine, and you’ll have the joy of knowing that your gaming PC is truly yours, as opposed to something that came out of someone else’s pre-existing inventory.

(Note: I really don’t judge folks who buy pre-built machines at all—but if you have the time, the will, and the wherewithal, it’s always better to save money by pulling individual parts than it is to buy a pre-built system).

Whatever you do, I hope you enjoy your new PC!
