Starting from the ground up building your dream machine gives you a lot of flexibility. You will find it much easier to make modifications down the road to the computer's original build than with a preconfigured model purchased from a manufacturer. You can upgrade your system by adding new components as your budget allows. That is an advantage you will not find in stock computers in your local store. Why wait six months to save up money for an expensive computer that comes with so many things you do not need?
Research computer kits and save money by starting there, and add components to your machine as you are able to. Patience may be a virtue but that does not mean you have to wait to buy something that is wrong for you when you could start building what is right. When you are ready to add more components, look online for the best ones that are compatible with your kit for the most affordable prices. This way you save money and know all the pieces fit into the puzzle. When you are finished building that machine, you will have a better understanding of how it will work and be confident that it is the best “build for your buck.”
