    I'm curious to see what percentage of gamers have built their own or had a custom PC built for them. I had alot of fun (minor stress) building mine but overall i loved the experience of creating my PC from an empty Razer H440. Also, feel free to drop pictures, i know there are similar threads for pictures but there can never be enough chroma on this site!! :D

    I just responded to your comment on my thread about this :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye_:

    Just as I say there, I'll be building my first PC on the Razer Antec but It'll be a while before complete. I have a stocked PC (MSI Vortex) that is very nice and have had no complaints about. msisetup.jpg

    I brought a pre-build from Dell / Alienware. The worse money I've thrown away in my life. From year one it was nothing but problem after problem after problem. And to top it off they wanted me to tailor MY life around THEIR schedule. Can you believe the gall of those people?

    I love my prebuilt from CyberpowerPC I got at bestbuy, Never regretted buying it once. It was better for me to get a prebuilt because it was about $1800 CAD, And if I were to build with the many bitcoin mining and DDR4 shortage issues, It would have been almost as much to build, And then I would have had to deal with no warranty other then what the parts have themselves, And I would have to troubleshoot any errors I had by myself, And I am not the best at that :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:.

    I wish Razer would release their own desktops. They're already kicking alienware's butt in laptops. Might as well take it all. They don't know what to with anyway.

    I have both a pre-built and self-built PC and I find at the moment the prices for individual parts, especially GPUs, due to mining. At the moment I think it is cheaper to buy a pre-built one from websites like ebuyer as my pre-built one cost me £1100 yet sold separately it would cost £1900.

    Yeah, I too wish they did something on there own. The Core also has great reviews, And with that they experienced with some things that they would easily be able to bring over to the desktop market. I think Min has also teased it in the past, So all we have to do is the one day that it will become a thing. They might just be a bit worried because the Desktop market is quite a big industry for a laptop and peripheral maker to walk into, They might be testing what the response would be of them going into those industry's with the Razer phone to see if it would be worth it.
    They also already have the partnerships with Nvidia and Intel it seems already, So its all just a big waiting game for all of us.

    Yeah, you're right. Razer's will probably look into it once they dismantle a certain company in Cupertino!
    Then they can turn their attention to my favorite company located in Round Rock Texas.

    This was partially why i asked the question, because i often see advertisements of PC's that seem to have really good specs for decent prices but they seem to get mixed reviews so it makes we wonder what is the better thing to do in the current market.

    That being said, i don't regret building my own at all! Seeing that Razer logo light up when i turn on my computer is a thing of beauty :D. If Razer had their own pre-built desktop then i would have been very tempted to do that instead.
