I’ve been building custom PCs for nearly 10 years now, and I greatly enjoy helping others build their own computers. Friends, acquaintances, and strangers often approach me, asking for advice on their next custom PC build. Every time I part out a new custom PC for someone, something I have done hundreds of times in the past, I will update this post. I hope it comes in handy when you’re building a PC of your own!
Please feel free to contact me if you’d like me to design a custom PC for you!
Note that all prices below will be the most accurate at the date noted above each build. Also, I would hugely appreciate it if you bought your PC parts from the Amazon links on this page, such that I may earn commission via Amazon Associates.
