Custom Built Desktops - (DOZENS BUILT!) - The lack of pre-built inventory caused by COVID and supply change issues forced an operational change for the busines. We started building and offering custom desktops using the components that were available. This turned out to be a great move. Now we can do EXACTLY what the client wants without being limited to pre-built machines. We have basic well-balanced configurations that we use a starting point. These can be altered as desired. We will ONLY use high quality components that we would be comfortable using ourselves. If your looking for a mid to upper end machine, this may be worth considering.
