    PC Building Buisness?

    Example of upfront investment

    PC Building Buisness?

    If it's local then word to mouth is the best thing but that grows up in time. It takes a lot of time. That's why I chose to do upfront builds, risking my money and hoping to get my money back and maybe something on top. Friendliness and having a chat with every possible customer helps as well. It would be very hard to make a living out of this so don't aim for that at this point.

    PC Building Buisness?

    For example this is what I have for sale at the moment First 5 builds are all for sale at the moment. It is a lot of money invested but I got faith that I will sale them eventually. Just last Saturday I sold 2, one for £950 and the other for £675, having about £300 profit from which I need to pay taxes and take roughly £30 for petrol.

    PC Building Buisness?

    Let's agree to disagree Indeed the market is kind of saturated but it does depends the area as well. I've started this as a side business (and still is) last year in January and I've sold over 100 gaming PCs ranging from £200 up to £1200. All my PCs were using 95% pre-owned components. At start there was no receipt or warranty provided but as I've seen that people were asking about warranty and receipt I enrolled in the self-employed program in order to provide receipts and pay taxes for my hobby income (yes in UK there is such thing). True, it's not a full time job for me and I couldn't make a living out of this but it does add up to my monthly income on average £200. But for me is a hobby and then a business. As I said all my computers contain 95% pre-owned components and I do negotiate a lot for each one. I am not greedy and try to provide the best deals in my area. Not selling on ebay as their 8% fees + 3.4%+20p fees for paypal would mean that I'll be left without profit. Also it would be difficult (expensive) for me to provide warranty hundred of miles away.

    To answer your question: 1. I have bought a kit of 2x16gb for a decent price and wouldn't want to use all 32gb in one build. 2. Quote from GamersNexus about dual channel vs single channel "Gamers, mainstream users, and office users shouldn't care. Actually, at the end of the day, the same rule applies to everyone, simulation pro or not: It's density and frequency that matters, not channeling. Quad- and better channels theoretically have a more profound impact, but this is in-step with the increased density of kits that are targeted for quad-channel platforms. If you want to push speed, density and frequency should be at the top of your list. Generally, when you're spending that kind of money, you're going with a multi-channel kit of two or more anyway, but the point still stands." I agree that it would be nice to benefit from dual channel but it's not always possible and in the same time gamers are not that affected, considering that's my target audience. Also I am aware that it's just 2133Mhz but I bet it can be overclocked at least up to 2400Mhz and considering that the CPUs are locked SKU that should be more than enough.

    Thank you. I do buy the parts out of my money (personal investment), do the builds, put ads on different websites and wait to sell. Very rarely I get people to order one. It's easier for them to buy it pre-built as it's done and ready to start playing.

    Hi there people. In my previous build logs I have presented you my personal builds. In almost every post I have mentioned that I do have a small side business where I do pre-builts and then sell them for a small profit. I would like to present you today some of them. Hope you like "my taste" as I don't have orders on them and usually build them to my likings. Also, I cannot choose a themed build as I usually build with the components I get for a good deal.
