What is a barebones kit?
A barebones PC is the fastest way to start building or upgrading your computer. The barebones computers you'll find here typically come with a case, motherboard, & processor along with other parts & accessories to start off your build. Choose your barebones PC kit to fit your build - whether you're going to build your own computer or build your own laptops with a notebook barebones kit, we've got the right system that will be perfect for you. We use brands including, but not limited to, Bitfenix, Antec, Fractal design, and Logisys for cases, Gigabyte, Asus, and ASRock for motherboards, Western Digital and Seagate for our hard drives, Mushkin for RAM, Corsair, Solid Gear, and Ark Technology for our power supplies, and more for other hardware included in various kits.
What is the right Barebones Kit for me?
If you're going to build a performance PC, you're looking for a system with a four-core CPU, something like an Intel Core i5 or i7, or AMD A-Series or FX processor, at least 8GB of RAM, and a high wattage power-supply, likely over 500W. For home-use PC, you'll probably only need a power supply up to about 400-450W, depending on performance and other hardware, a minimum of 4GB of RAM, and maybe a Pentium or Athlon II dual-core processor. We try provide generous storage solutions for your system as well, generally 500GB to 1TB.
Why should I buy a barebones kit
Since the parts are already picked out for you, all you need to do is assemble them. We sell our barebones kits at discounted prices as well, so you can save time and money. This is great for new builders that want to get their hands wet, though, we highly encourage dry hands when actually building your PC. Barebones kits also act as a good starting point for builders to put a PC together and add some more hardware along the way.
Other reasons we like to build from the ground up is so we can know just what is going into our system from the get go, from hardware to operating system and software. Pre-built systems often come laden with bloatware, proprietary software from the manufacturer that is widely unused by most consumers, and often doesn't play nice with other proprietary software that your family member or friend's PC has on it, which is pretty frustrating isn't it? You'll also be able to choose exactly the operating system you want to use. Yes, it may be another purchase, but it's also part of the cost of a pre-built machine. With hand-picked hardware, operating system, and software for your system, you'll be able to have a truly personal computer experience.
