A pre-built PC is ready to go right away whereas a custom gaming PC takes time to get to an optimal state. Should you go with a pre-built or a custom gaming PC?
It really comes down to what you’re looking for. A pre-built might let you get right into the action with the overall PC experience but you usually miss out on power per dollar spent. A custom gaming build lets you optimize how much you’re spending but you’ll have to learn how to put it all together.
Luckily it doesn’t take a computer scientist to put a PC together and there is plenty of material out there to help you out! Let’s go over both choices and decide which is the better route.
