Welcome to the Micro Center Custom PC Builder
For as far as the modern personal computer has come, there’s still no one-size-fits-all machine for every type of user. While many pre-built computers can suit many individuals, custom configurations are a great choice for many users, especially when it comes to high-performance computing, gaming, design, and more. Plus, building your own PC is a whole lot of fun, especially if you like to tinker with electronics!
If you’re into customizing your setup — whether by building your own computer from scratch or simply upgrading to high-tech peripherals – Micro Center is your go-to resource for PC building, whether you want to start from scratch or with a pre-built base system with customizable components. We can help you choose everything from your hard drive to your power supply to your tower, and it all starts here with our custom PC builder. We will walk you through the process of choosing your motherboard, graphics cards, CPU cooler and more.
Start from Scratch or with a Base System
The first step in building the best PC for your needs is to determine whether you want to customize each component of your computer or start with a base system. If you’re into PC gaming, you may want to consider building from scratch or choosing a base system equipped with an AMD or Nvidia graphics card that provides the smoothest gameplay experience to maximize performance and entertainment value for gamers. AMD Radeon or Nvidia GeForce are obvious choices for customized gaming desktop graphics cards.
When you start from scratch, you get to customize literally everything inside and out, starting with the hardware. Select your CPU, motherboard, RAM, video card, SSD, power supply, hard drive, optical drive, PC case, cables, adapters, peripherals, and more.
If you prefer the convenience of prebuilt PCs but want a bit of customization to suit your specific use cases, consider starting with a base system. Simply select a level of performance and customize by choosing an AMD or Intel processor. We’ll take things a step further by selecting the ideal motherboard, case, power supply, liquid cooling system, and more for your needs and budget. This way, you get the ideal setup with less stress or decisions.
Gamers won’t be disappointed by our selection of high-performance graphics cards and components made just for high-performance PC gaming. With popular options like the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060, RTX 3080, RTX 3090 as well as AMD’s Radeon 6600 XT, Radeon 6800 XT, Radeon 6950 XT, and others, you’ll be well-equipped to take your gameplay to the next level.
