Hi all, i just wondering, do you customize your own computer? or you just pick it from a shelf or order it from online without building your own?

hi i would always recommend one to buy a custom desktop, i wanted a laptop and at that time i didn't have the option to avail a custom one, so i just took the specifications which i liked and took an hp, i would say never buy a company made desktop though, just configure your own and when some parts fail, it is always easy to replace them that way. happy mylotting :)

yes i do agree with you, i had an experience with my first computer which i purchased from DELL. We cannot purchase some computer hardwares from outside, such as RAM. It was very expensive to buy computer parts from them. A laptop, we sure has no choice with that.

DELL laptops have come out with the option to customize but that is sooooo limited, nowhere near how you can configure a desktop.

I do customize my computer whether it is desktop or laptop, because customization make your computer unique from others especially when you customize the look of your laptop. I am a casual gamer also so i have to customize my desktop pc hardware especially for gaming,like cpu cover.

Yup i do agree with your opinion too. If we are into games, we really need a computer beast which can really performed good. We need to take consideration on the computer parts such as, RAM , graphic card, CPU, air cooling and many more. Why not share with us some pictures of your beast.

Yes, i build my own configuration so i can choose which one is the best and suitable. Many of preconfigure computers cannot upgrade well, and i like to boost my pc performance by overcloak it :)

I strongly agree with you that many preconfigure computers cannot be upgraded. Wow i guess we just met an overclocker maniac, cool dude. Make sure you do not destroy it.

My computer is self-assemble. I bought PC Casing (do some mod to it first), graphic card, hard disk, motherboard, memory, power supply, dvd burner and processor. And used my old computer Monitor, mouse and keyboard. It takes less than one hour to completely assemble it. The only thing that takes times is installing the operating system ,installing driver and update the operating system for any security fixes. Then I set up my old computer to become a headless server (running Debian GNU/Linux) for running NAS and torrent application.

good choice, i do the same as you too. why not share with us some pictures of your computer. Wow an hour only, that is super fast, i believe you can join a competition computer hardware assembly. For me, i just love to take my own sweet time to built up my beast machine. Yeah baby, linux is goodand can be used on any computer even the old ones.

The one i'm using now i just picked out from the shelves of circuitcity. Its a Acer Inspiron and its been good to me. I usually don't customize it because it usually end up more expensive.

Thank you for the reply, i see so that is one of the reason. Well, you should know what you are buying and for what purpose, there are some computer hardwares which are cheap and some are expensive. But i can see you choosed the correct one.

Hey, I just walked into a computer store one day with a couple hundred dollars, I wasn't looking for a specific one. Then I decided just to pick one that suited me best, I never custom build my own. Make sure you have a good day, Happy Lotting!!

Customizing is either hardware or software. Hardware would be buying a high-end fan for example for your cpu. Software is when you set the background screen, change how windows looks. and you can save it, to use when you get another computer. Did that answer you? Messege me if you want to.

Customizing is the most intelligent thing to do because then there is not a chance of the system having a hardware component thats a local brand or something.
