Top Mistakes To Avoid When Buying A Custom Gaming PC


Purchasing a new gaming PC is thrilling. You pick out each specific component you want and eagerly await for its arrival. The end result is a machine that is powerful and customized for your specific gaming needs. However, when it comes to making this purchase, there are a few common pitfalls to avoid. Here at Main Performance PC, we are passionate about helping people find the custom gaming PC of their dreams. We want every single one of our customers to be thrilled with their final purchase. In order to avoid any disappointment in your purchase, check out these top mistakes to avoid when purchasing a custom gaming PC.

#1: Cut Corners To Lower Costs

As you put together your dream gaming PC, you will probably encounter a myriad of costs that you might not have expected. High-quality PC parts are not always cheap. However, the worst thing you can do is try to save money by cutting corners. If you don’t invest in the right parts up front, you will wind up with an underpowered system and you might find yourself disappointed in the money you did spend.

It is far better to make the investment necessary up front to provide you with a custom gaming PC that you can enjoy for years to come. While it might not seem like a big deal to skimp on a part here and there, your system will operate faster and provide you with a better gaming experience if you have purchased quality components all around. Don’t cut corners on your purchase. Make the investment worthwhile.

#2: Make An Impulse Purchase

Perhaps it is late at night and you are hitting a wall of frustration with your current gaming PC. You are sick of losing races or battles because of your slow refresh rate or underpowered graphics card. In the heat of the moment, you hop online and make an impulsive decision to purchase the first cool looking gaming PC you land on.

Impulse purchases are rarely a good plan. They usually lead to regrets and overspending. It is a much better idea to take your time researching the exact PC you need before you make a purchase. Compare CPUs, graphics cards, monitors, and other key components of the PC before making a purchase. The more time you spend researching and comparing systems, the less likely it is for you to be disappointed in what you got or to experience the dreaded buyer’s remorse. Do your homework and pick something that will make your gaming experience ideal.

#3: Get In Over Your Head

While it can seem like a super fun idea to build your gaming PC from scratch, you can quickly find yourself in over your head. Don’t take on a bigger project than you can handle. Too often, people get excited about gaming and decide to jump all in on building a new gaming PC. They wind up with a pile of parts and no idea of why their new PC won’t work.

It is a much better idea to customize your gaming PC through an online store, such as ours, where you can piece together what you want but where you still end up with a complete product. This will ensure that you can actually enjoy the products you spent money on, rather than just staring at a puzzle of pieces.

#4: Pair Your New PC With An Outdated Monitor

If you are going to spend the money on a premium gaming PC, then you need to also be willing to spend the money on quality monitors. Nothing is worse than pairing your custom gaming PC with monitors that can’t support your new system. This can lead to slow refresh rates, poor resolution, and disappointing response times.

Put aside money for quality monitors if you plan to purchase a new gaming PC. The right monitors will go a long way in allowing you to get the most out of your custom gaming PC. Look for monitors that boast high refresh rates and at least 1080p resolution.

#5: Purchase From A Questionable Company

Unfortunately, the internet has made it easy for any company to occupy space in the online market and it has made it simple for less than reputable companies to advertise their products to thousands of people. Make sure that before you invest in a new gaming PC, you know that the company you are purchasing from is a reputable business. Look for a company that is based here in the United States and that offers customer support you can easily reach. Be wary of any deals that seem too good to be true. If everyone else is selling the same product for $1,000 and some new company online is offering it for $500, you should be cautious. It is easy for scammers to use the internet as a perfect place to prey upon people who don’t do their research.

Here at Main Performance PC, we have a quality reputation as a United States based company. We will be happy to speak with you before you make your purchase and we will be glad to answer any questions you have about the gaming PCs we provide. We want you to feel secure in your purchase, which is why we are dedicated to superior customer service.

Shop our online store today and avoid the above pitfalls as you make your custom gaming PC purchase. We look forward to helping you find the perfect PC for your needs.
