Build Computers

and make them powerful


Welcome to the build computers page. It's goal is to help you out and be a resource to building your computer.


If the thought of building your own computer freaks you out, sounding overwhelming or difficult, don't worry. It's really like putting together a puzzle, with big square pieces;)



Why build your own computer? Can't we get them pre-built at the stores?


Sure we can. But there's a little issue about saving money here.


Build a computer with selected parts that fit your specific needs, and you would come out a lot cheaper than buying a regular desktop computer.


So it all comes down to two key benefits:

  1. It's way cheaper.

  2. You get exactly what you want. No unneeded parts.

The links below lead to pages with important information about each component you need to build a computer that has the power for use in a recording studio or any other high-demanding environment.


The links are ordered in a way, from top to bottom, that is natural when you build your own computer from scratch.


This guide will be frequently updated.
