A bare-bones computer build is a great option if you are looking for a custom PC but want to do some of the work yourself. Our knowledgeable sales associates are always ready to help you choose the perfect parts. We can install your processor, heat sink, and RAM onto your motherboard so you can assemble the components in your case, truly building your own computer. Or we can do all of the assembly and you can install the operating system. Whatever works best for you.
Helpful tips from Micro Center service experts
Changing components
Sometimes small changes in system components can make a world of difference when it comes to computer performance. Feel free to speak to one of our knowledgeable sales associates who can make some recommendations for your build.
Be sure to leave yourself the possibility for system upgrades. Since a custom computer allows you to select all of the components, consider choosing a slightly larger case. This could allow more room for expansion down the road.
Protection Plans
Micro Center Protection Plans are a great way to protect your system in the event of a product failure. We offer a variety of replacement and protection plans to cover whatever you need. Ask a store associate for details or read about Micro Center Protection Plans.
