For the gamer, graphic designer, filmmaker, musician, architect, developer, or engineer in your life, a custom computer build is one of the best gifts you can think about this holiday season, and now you have an advantage related to the fall of the cryptocurrency market. With the exchange price of Bitcoin having reached record low levels in November, operators of mining pools have stopped gobbling up the most powerful graphics cards on the market, which means that they are back in stock and have returned to normal pricing.
The Strengths of Custom Gaming PCs
For gamers, the allure of a custom rig is that it will be one step ahead of most off-the-shelf systems, which are generally priced to be underwhelming and may not be able to play the most demanding AAA titles or virtual reality games to their full glory. Not many store-bought systems will be able to deliver 4K resolutions and 100 frames per second; if this is your goal, custom computer builds are your only choice; depending on the configuration you choose, the cash you save can be put towards cool peripherals such as special mouse and keyboard combinations, VR headsets and surround sound systems.
