So, you've decided it's time to get serious and you're ready to embark on the thrilling journey that is PC gaming. You've heard about those powerful PC builds and decided yours will be the best it can possibly be. You'll be the envy of your peers and considered a genius for producing such a magnificent creation. Then the reality of PC building starts to set in; those long hours can be rough if this isn't your full-time job. Sure, a lot of people could build a good PC from scratch, but it turns out you can have all the benefits without having to do it yourself. Here are some great reasons to consider choosing a prebuilt gaming PC:


As mentioned above, building a PC takes time. When you're working during the day, it can be hard knowing you're coming home only to put in more hours of work building in your free time. By choosing a prebuilt gaming PC, you're letting someone else put in that time for you, and providing you choose the right PC builder, you'll have no concerns about the final product. This doesn't make the PC any less 'yours' just because you haven't put the time into building it yourself, as you can still choose the exact specifications you want it to have. You'll reap the benefits without sacrificing free time to get them.

Budget efficiency

When setting out to build a PC from scratch, you have to individually buy all the resources you'll need. Inevitably this leads to a certain amount of waste as it's almost impossible to buy exact amounts or even to know what exactly you're going to use. Some things may also be more expensive when sold separately. A prebuilt gaming PC presents the most efficient use of resources and could ultimately work out cheaper than the alternative. You'll have no concerns of seeing anything wasted, including your money.

Guaranteed optimisation

There's nothing to say you couldn't fully optimise a PC yourself, but unless you have vast amounts of experience, it's pretty unlikely. Whereas choosing an expert to handle your build will guarantee you're getting not only a prebuilt gaming PC but also a fully optimised one, suited to your needs and ready for anything you'll throw at it. This isn't an easy thing to achieve, especially if it's your first time. Choosing a prebuilt PC also still gives you the freedom to experiment with upgrades later.

Best choice of parts

With experience comes a knowledge of the best parts for whatever kind of PC you'd like. A prebuilt gaming PC comes with the extra advantage of having everything it needs straight away. This could possibly save you more time and money than if you'd noticed an inconvenient miscalculation with your own build, leading to changes before you've even begun.


An often overlooked but major advantage of choosing a prebuilt gaming PC is the warranty. This is your fail-safe guarantee against anything going wrong within the first few years of ownership. It's also something you may end up missing dearly if you choose to take full responsibility of building a PC yourself.

UK Gaming Computers offer a generous 6-year warranty on their prebuilt gaming PC selection by experienced builders. If you have any further questions or are interested in taking the plunge into PC gaming, make them your number one choice.
