The Builds

Would you like to build your next PC? Whether it's your first time building or you're returning for another go-round, these guides will set you up with the perfect PC for your needs. We feature a total of 20 different builds, starting at $500 and going as high as $8,000 and beyond! Using our filtering tool, you can identify the builds that best suit your needs and then compare them to find just the one you're looking for, based on components, price, and size.

Generally speaking, the builds fall into five categories:

  • The Low-Cost Builds ($500-$750): if this is your first build, or you have modest needs, these systems will be ideal for home office, home theater, or gaming.
  • The Mid-Range Builds ($1,000-$1,250): you want a PC that will be faster and quieter than just about any off-the-shelf system, but you still want it to be easy to build.
  • The High-End Builds ($1,400-$1,750): you're looking for serious gaming chops, or a very powerful office PC.
  • The Ultra-High-End Builds ($2,000-$5,000): you're looking for cutting-edge technology and extreme gaming performance.
  • The Supreme Dream Machine ($6,000+): you have a truly unlimited budget, or you just want to know what you could buy if you did!
