Computers - Build Your Own or Buy?
If you are in the market for a new computer, you may be wondering if you can save money by building your own from components you purchase individually. There are advantages and disadvantages to building your own computer. If price is your major consideration, you are probably better off purchasing an inexpensive computer from a retailer. You can buy good computer at a very reasonable price in many locations. If you would like control over the types and quality of components in your computer, and you can follow instructions and use a screwdriver, you can build your own computer and save money over the top of the line computer sold by major manufacturers.

Building your own computer is a very effective way to learn about computers in general and the process is not near as complex as it may seem. A major disadvantage is that you will not have a system wide warranty. If one component inside your computer causes another component to be damages, you will only be covered for the original part, not the damage to other components that can result. You will also pay more for brand name components than you would for the factory components purchased by major computer manufacturers, but the trade off is well worth the price difference. In building your own computer, you will be certain you are getting the best components and you will get the exact components you desire.

Building your own computer has many benefits, one of which that if one of your components malfunctions, you will have prior knowledge of the component and how to replace it. It is not at all difficult or complicated to build your own computer. If you can assemble your child's toys, you can build your own computer.
