Why Custom Built PC's Are The Better Option

If you are contemplating buying a new PC anytime soon, this article might be of some help. Chances are at some point you owned a PC by one of the top three manufacturers. Remember the first time you turned on that machine? Well if you don't, let me refresh your memory.

The first time you booted into Windows and got through the Windows welcome screens you were presented with your desktop. You probably noticed that start up was a little sluggish. The reason for the slow start is the many pre-loaded programs that came with your brand new PC. Now if they were the full versions then it wouldn't be a problem. But they are not, most are time limited trial software, including the anti-virus. Not only that, the anti-virus is not even activated. And most people don't activate it, which leaves them vulnerable to viruses and malware. Those who do activate it, find that it is only good for 90 days before they have to fork over more money to renew.

The trial software is also configured to start with the PC. Which means that by the time Windows is fully loaded and ready to go half of your memory is already being used up. Which leaves you with a slow sluggish PC to do what you want to do.

The better option is to get a custom built PC, with the software that you want, not what the PC manufacturers are throwing at you. Not only will you be getting a faster more efficient computer, you will also receive better support and customer care. And more importantly, your upgrade options are alot better if you choose to do so in the future.

The best place to buy a custom system is by going to your local computer store. There are also tons of companies on the Internet that offer the service. Prices are comparable to the big PC manufacturers. Just remember when these manufacturers advertise prices that are too good to be true, they usually are. You always get what you pay for.
