Custom Built PCs

If you’ve ever dreamt of building your very own custom computer from scratch, Inside Tech can supply the parts you need or even build it for you. We stock all of the components you need to get started, from the latest Intel and AMD processors to stunning gaming PCs. No matter what your requirements or how big or small your budget, we can help you to build a completely custom laptop, desktop PC or mini PC that meets your exact specifications.

Benefits of Custom PC Builds

Custom PCs offer a great number of benefits compared to pre-built models. They are highly customisable and upgradable, so you can construct the machine you need for any task. All your chosen components can be tailored precisely to your workload, budget, and preferred capabilities.

Custom systems also tend to have reliable performance, maximal speed, and efficient operation due to greater quality control over production. Plus, repairs are usually easier as individual components can be easily replaced.

Finally, custom builds tend to have longer life cycles than pre-made computers, as you can upgrade parts such as the CPU or RAM at any time with no risk of compatibility issues.

PC Building Necessities

Here are a few pieces of information that can help with your Custom PC Build in the UK.

Graphics Processing Unit (GPU)

For the modern PC gamer, the GPU, or more commonly known as the graphics card, of the computer is one of the most important components. Every year, the latest triple A games are becoming more and more demanding. Although the computer’s CPU or processor still contributes to the overall performance in games, the graphics card usually plays a bigger part.

Beyond games, the graphics card is still essential in tasks that are graphics-intensive including streaming or transcoding videos.

Random Access Memory (RAM)

In a nutshell, the RAM or memory of a PC enables the user to perform multiple tasks at the same time. The higher the memory capacity of a computer, the more tasks it can essentially perform simultaneously.

In order for a PC to perform today’s tasks without a hitch typically requires at least 4GB of RAM. At 8GB, you get good performance. This is also modern game territory. Some specialised tasks require more memory capacity.

These memory modules also come in different speeds, although the differences between them can hardly be felt most of the time.

Storage Drives

Solid state drives or SSDs used to cost so much more than they do today. This is why most people used hard disk drives (HDD) before. But now that the price of SSDs have become more reasonable, there’s a real choice between SSDs and HDDs.

The most noticeable difference between the two kinds of storage devices is how SSDs are significantly faster than HDDs. In fact, HDDs are arguably the slowest component of a modern computer.

SSDs use NAND flash technology. Unlike HDDs, they don’t require spinning disks or any other moving part to store your data. This improves both speed and durability.

At the same price points though, HDDs are still cheaper than SSDs. A well-stocked custom PC will most likely have both an SSD and an HDD. The former will store the operating system and some important programs, while the latter will store the bulk of the files and data.

Factors to Consider When Building Your Own Custom PC

Before starting the project, consider what kind of machine you need. Do you need a powerful gaming computer or something more suitable for everyday tasks such as browsing and email? Depending on your needs, the components required to build your ideal custom PC will vary.

Consider how much room is available in your workspace. A full-sized desktop computer will take up more space than an all-in-one unit with integrated hardware and display. If space is limited, but you still want plenty of power under the hood, a mini-ITX setup might be more suitable.

Choose the right components

Deciding which components you need is the foundation of any PC build. Consider how much performance, power and storage you require and other factors such as cooling and form factor.

Plan your setup

Once you’ve chosen the parts, know where each component will go. Having a plan before you start assembling will make the process smoother.

Assemble your system

Now it’s time to get building! You can build using the components from our shop or have it done by our technicians.

Custom PC Parts

Install Operating System and Software

Ensure you have disks or USB drives, usernames and passwords, product keys, and licence agreements. After installation is finished, your computer may need some fine-tuning or additional features added, such as anti-virus programs or web browsers.

Test and Troubleshoot

Once you’re done, it’s important to check that everything is working correctly. Turn on your PC and run a few tests to make sure everything is running smoothly. If there are any issues, troubleshoot them accordingly.
