I bought this gaming PC instead of building my own – and it’s the best decision I’ve ever made

Last year I bought an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti without waiting months by buying a pre-built PC from NZXT (opens in new tab). It was a tough decision to make considering all the negative things I have heard about pre-built computers. However, after a year of waiting for the cards in the Nvidia RTX 30 series to become available at affordable prices, I chose the nuclear option and bought a pre-built rig. Seven months later, I do not regret my decision. In fact, buying a pre-built PC was one of the wisest decisions I have ever made.

In my previous piece, I was hesitant to tell others about following my place. I must admit that this concern came from being hinted at by potential setbacks from the PC community who sometimes wrinkle their noses when buying pre-built rigs. I was also a novice technical writer and did not want to appear as if I was not knowledgeable enough to design my own PC.
