I founded The Tech Buyer's Guru to make buying PC-related technology a whole lot easier, and have recently expanded into the smart home arena. There's no shortage of information out there, but sorting through all the noise can be frustrating and time-consuming. The Tech Buyer's Guru gives you all the answers you need in a clear, concise manner, based on extensive product research and testing.

Reader Testimonials

Since The Tech Buyer's Guru first launched in March 2013, thousands of TBG readers from around the world have purchased PCs and PC-related products informed by TBG's how-to guides and buyer's guides. Here's just a small sampling of the positive feedback we've received!

I just wanted to give you the update... Me and my brother built this PC and it worked right off the bat for us on our first try!  This computer is quiet, fast and that monitor... oh the monitor (ViewSonic XG2401) is absolutely gorgeous.  I just wanted to come by and thank you for all the help you provided and wanted to say this computer was well worth the money spent.

Part of the fun [of publishing my TBG experience] is just being able to share the joy I had building my first pc, but I also truly hope that people will feel inspired and encouraged to do this as well. There must be a ton of aspiring pc builders out there who think this is simply too hard and will just go buy an off the shelf product. DIY is so much more rewarding!!

After a decade of buying pre-built laptops and computers... I grew tired of paying premium prices for computers that couldn't push all my favorite games to their full potential. I decided ... that I would learn to build my own gaming PC.... Thankfully I found The Tech Buyer's Guru's ... which made it straightforward and simple to buy all the parts I would need for amazing performance while gaming at 1080p. This saved me loads of time researching what CPUs and GPUs are compatible with which motherboards, etc. From building the desktop to overclocking the GPU and CPU, Ari was extremely helpful with quick, informative responses.
