About

What’s up gamers! JD here, the lead author here at CustomGamingBuilds.com and I started this site to share what I’ve learned over the years about building custom high-performance gaming PCs to help you effectively build your own gaming machine without spending an arm and a leg.

Besides a lot of gaming, one of my favourite hobbies as a teenager was creating my own PC games. My gaming programming experience led to my interest in high-performance computer hardware, which is something I still learn about to this day as technology is always advancing.

PC gaming is alive and well, but to play the latest games in all their glory you need a capable machine. I don’t know about you, but having your gaming experience plagued by choppy lag and subpar quality graphics isn’t my idea of fun.

High-performance PCs can be expensive beasts, and putting together your own custom build is really the only way to truly maximize gaming performance for your money. The best thing is, it’s extremely easy to do these days.

They say that if you can build Lego, you can easily build a computer, and I wholeheartedly agree. Although, if you’re a first-time builder I totally understand that it can all seem very confusing and alien to you, so I always strive to simplify any complicated topics and limit the technical jargon to help you understand everything you need to know.

On this site you’ll find updated buying guides, hardware reviews, custom build examples, and much more, to help you confidently build the best bang-for-your-buck gaming rig from scratch to experience gaming at its finest.

Thanks for stopping by, and long live PC gaming!
