AMDâ€™s mighty Ryzen processors and Intelâ€™s high-octane 10th-gen Core CPUs continue to spark interest in PC building, but some people still hesitate at the idea of crafting a custom PC. Donâ€™t! Building your own PC isnâ€™t some arcane art or esoteric skill that only the most hardcore of hardware geeks can pull off. In fact, assembling a DIY PC is pretty straightforward once youâ€™ve settled on your parts list.Â
Rolling your own computer offers a number of advantages that boxed desktops just canâ€™t match, even though high demand during the pandemic has made PC parts scarcer and more expensive. You still get granular control over every single aspect of the hardware. You still get to choose not only the nuts-and-bolts-level details like processing and graphical performance, but also deeply personal touches like the PCâ€™s case design and cooling capabilities. Thereâ€™s no need to settle for a boring black box, unless you want a boring black box.
