Quick Post: Buying a Prebuilt PC Instead of Building one?

The title above is quite a description of the battle going in my head at this very moment! As I have stated in previous YouTube Videos and blog posts, my laptop that I always use is now “retired” due to some hardware difficulties. I’m not going to get into full detail in this post as there are so many more places to reach this info. Anyways, I’m starting to get a little off-topic here so let’s get back on track here. To the battle to in my head.

Built/By Parts PC

Firstly, I want to clarify that for this blog post I will be dedicating the research to a kind of computer called “Gaming Computers”. This is not only for gaming although also for my future editing purposes. This was the solution I was more leaning toward at first. Don’t get me wrong, part for part computers are great although especially during Covid-19 prices have spiked. BY A LOT. Here is my PCPartPicker list:


Please note that at the time of writing, the ram was out of stock although the price total was about my budget of $1000 Canadian.

Pre-built PC’s

This is a topic I changed my mind on yesterday. (Yes I am doing a lot of research so my ideas change pretty often) I always thought that prebuilds were not the value for your money although that all changed after one search on Amazon. Yes, only one search. You see, it only took one search as taking a look at some prices and the specs of my PCPartPicker list and the prebuilds I was being dominated. Sure, there was less storage and less ram although expandability is not a problem for me. And counting all the parts in prebuild, to PCPartPicker, seriously was way more expensive. If you want to see the PC I have my eyes on, for now, check it out here:
