"I built my own gaming rig this past summer. It was a mid-to-high level PC, totaling about $1200-1300 and I picked out all the parts using your website. I just wanted to take a moment to say thanks for the awesome info. My PC works absolutely flawlessly and I love it so much. I was afraid I was going to have buyer's remorse for dropping so much money on a PC, but I works so well and I haven't regretted it a bit. I still frequently check your website to check out the updated builds, and I think it's awesome how you update it monthly. All in all, I just wanted to say thanks for the upkeep on a great site.

Thanks again for the great build advice and tutorials. I wasnt sure I was up to building my own rig but your site has given me the confidence to have a go."

"Recently a friend of mine wanted me to build him a decent gaming PC
for around six-hundred dollars. I had never built a PC before in my life, but I knew a fair bit about computers because my father was a internetworking technician. So with a basic knowledge of computer hardware and software I went ahead looking for the best budget builds out there.
Alas most of them were just showy builds that lacked any real affordability and good performance. Then I stumbled across this site during a Google search. I was relieved to find a very simple list of what I needed, and the components met my friends budget and my interest.
It was a week later when two huge boxes arrived at my doorstep and in no time I had everything opened up on my kitchen table; I was ready to build my first computer. After three hours and some struggle I had the budget beast running and all drivers installed. I downloaded a game on it and it played beautifully.
The next day my friend came over to give it his stamp of approval and he was thrilled. I was so proud of my work and very happy to see such a good thing come together.
Thanks for the build, and thanks for keeping this site up to educate people!"

"Just wanted to thank you and your website for helping me build my first gaming PC! I've been sitting on your website for over a month, using it as a hub to research parts from your custom build suggestions. I finally bit the bullet yesterday and bought all the components, building my baby through the afternoon. Worked (almost) first time and gamed through the night! Can't believe it was so easy!"

"Guys.. I just wanted to thank you for putting this site together. I'm building a PC to run SC2 on ultra setting (prepping for Heart of the Swarm). I've never attempted anything like this, so I was pretty intimidated. Even though building a PC is super easy, it's really not unless someone walks you through the basic steps. Your time and effort are definitely noted, and greatly appreciated!"
- James P, Australia
"This is so informative and in very simple way. I read so many books about building PC but they all are crap, too technical to understand and waste of time. Here everything is so simple. Soon I'll be building my own PC and I'm sure your help will play a significant role in it. Thanks once again. Brilliant work."
