Pre-built Gaming PC V DIY Showdown New Zealand

Prebuilt v DIY who will win?

Current PC prices are really expensive and its difficult to decide whether it is truly cheaper to purchase a PC yourself or to buy a prebuilt PC. Today I will comparing several PC builds compared the one I put together in the Part 1 of this series to prebuilt PCs from Computer Lounge, PBTech and PCForce. I have also put these PCs comparisons on a spreadsheet which you can click on above to view. There are a few links to the parts on pricespy. If there any parts which aren’t linked I will try to put the links up or if there are parts that are non-descriptive i.e. no brand I don’t know the brand and will try to find this information out soon. Also the ones I recommend are in bold. I hope you enjoy the video! 😀

NOTE ON THE SPREADSHEET: The bold ones Like the Divine and the Ronin are the ones I am recommending if you don’t want to DIY. FYI the DIY PC is still better in terms of its specs and price because of the extra HDD, Fan and aftermarket cooler
