Building A Computer

Everything you need to know about building PCs

Anyone who has ever embarked on the journey of building a computer knows that it is very difficult to get help with computer building.  As a matter of fact, the first instinct is to try and find gaming PC repair shops that can assist.  Unfortunately, all shops that specialize in gaming computer repair near me do not understand the dilemmas of building pcs.  In other words, gaming computer repair near me is not the same as building pcs.  As a result, they charge outrageous fees to assist the person who is struggling in building a computer for gaming. Basically, a simple computer problem is charged as a major PC gaming repair. 

There are 3 major components that make DML the best gaming computer repairs & services in Albuquerque.  First, and most importantly, we understand that a computer that “looks” cool, doesn’t always make the best gaming pcs.  Second, our computer builders are specially trained to purchase parts that work best together.  For example, DDR3 RAM with NVIDIA RTX cards are known to cause performance issues when placed in the same computer.  Finally, our computer builders tailor each computer to the gaming needs of each person.  In other words, a person who plays Call of Duty needs a different pc than someone who plays Minecraft.

The cool computer vs the functional computer

As an avid gamer and computer builder, I have seen some of the coolest gaming computers ever built.  As a matter of fact, there are gaming computers that blow bubbles and those that have fish tanks inside.  The biggest issue with such “cool” gaming pcs is that functionality is often compromised to make them look better.  DML computer technicians understand that machines should be beautiful, but not at the expense of functionality.  Consequently, we guarantee to build you a beautiful machine, without compromising performance. 

 Compatibility, compatibility, compatibility!

The biggest mistakes made by gaming computer repair shops who try to build computers is the compatibility of parts. One of the most common mistakes that DML Technicians FIX for other gaming PC shops is compatibility.  For example, a shop decides to start building computers and uses a custompcbuilder website to assist with choosing parts.   Unfortunately, about 80% of the parts recommended by websites that assist in computer building do not work well together.  At DML, our experienced pc techs are trained to choose components based on their own personal experience and knowledge.  As a result, you will never hear, “the website was wrong, it told me these parts were compatible”.

 The problem with pre-built computers

We have all walked into Best Buy and seen a plethora of gorgeous gaming pcs.  There is no doubt that they have fantastic prices, and the specifications are fantastic for the price.  However, those computers are built for the “average” gamer, not for YOU and your needs.  If you are an avid gamer and a youtuber, these machines are not for you, your needs are different.  As a matter of fact, these computers will crash within months and will underperform for you.  For that reason, DML builds computers specifically tailored to your lifestyle and performance needs.  Equally important, we want the computer we build for you to last years, not months.  Additionally, our average custom-built computers last approximately 15 years, rarely needing maintenance and upgrades.

I am building a computer that plays Call of Duty and World of Warcraft, but I have game lag and frequent FPS drops. would this problem be solved, If I had DML building a computer for me?

Our experienced computer specialists can build a computer that fits any need.  With that said, yes, we can build you a computer that plays your games.  World of Warcraft does not have major game requirements; however, COD needs very specific hardware to run smoothly.  I would recommend calling our Gaming Technician Dominic to make sure that we meet your needs with this build.  As a matter of fact, he specializes in FPS drop and game lag, as they relate to custom builds.  I would also recommend bringing the computer you built to Dominic, he can recommend a modification that solves the problem.

I used an online custompcbuilder website to choose the parts for building a computer. Do you have any advice for me?

80% of the parts that are recommended by online websites are not typically compatible.  For this reason, I would recommend researching the parts individually to ensure compatibility.  This is a common mistake made by gaming computer repair near me, and the main reason computer builds malfunction.

Do all PC shops who perform gaming computer repair near me use websites to put together the parts for a computer?

yes, all gaming pc repair shops who build a computer, use websites to choose parts for building a computer.  Unfortunately, this is simply the way things are done and this compromises the quality of the gaming pc.  More often than not, our technicians fix the errors made by other gaming pc repair shops, during building. This is just one of the many reasons we are the best gaming computer repairs & services in Albuquerque.

Can a shop that specializes in “gaming computer repair” near me build me a computer?

Yes, any gaming computer repair shop near me can build a computer, in theory.  With that said, I would not recommend hiring a company that specializes in pc repairs, not in building pcs.  They are not familiar with compatibility issues or personalizing a computer’s hardware to meet your specific needs.  In other words, they will build a computer that is built for “gaming”, not for the specific games you play.  This would be similar to buying a computer at Best Buy, built for gaming, not tailored to your needs.  As a matter of fact, I frequently fix them, explaining why the computer crashed after just a few months.  If you buy a computer from a big box store, then expect performance issues.  Additionally, the only way to ensure perfect performance is to hire someone who specializes in building pcs.   Although the process can be quite long, it is worth the extra money, time and effort involved in building a computer.

Are your custom built gaming computers cheaper than prebuilt gaming computers sold online?

Yes, we can compete with the price of those “other guys” selling prebuilt gaming computers online.  However, the problem with prebuilt gaming PCs is that the builders don’t always use the best hardware.  For example, those selling prebuilt gaming PCs will  give you a really strong CPU but sneak in a low-quality graphics card.  Fortunately, this is not a practice that DML computer techs possess. This can wreck a potentially decent computer build, especially when you want maximum performance for gaming!  Visit our pc builders today and get a free quote for your next gaming computer.
