DIY: BUILD YOUR OWN PC COST ANALYSIS




DIY: BUILD YOUR OWN PC COST ANALYSIS

I had a client today that wanted to build a gaming pc from scratch. I told him it just was not economical to do that. He wanted a cost breakdown… So I gave him one…

EBAY PARTS
========================
windows 10 $80
I7 32gb motherboard $90
I7 chip $400
32gb ram $300
video card $700 to $1000
psu $150
computer case $100
keyboard and mouse $50
19 inch monitor $50
TOTAL $1920

EBAY GAMING PC
starts at $1000

Local stories like sams club and costco are comparable to ebay…

Customer thought it would be cheaper if he built…
I told him that he was paying for uniqueness…
Small orders are always more expensive…
The companies that sell these computers buy parts in bulk so prices are lower it also helps that some of these machines are second hand like on ebay…

He went on ebay and bought a gaming pc…
