Five Ready to Use Desktop/Gaming builds that are #Goals

A couple of weeks ago I talked about building your own custom desktop with only $500. But then a couple of people asked, well what if you are not ready to build your own desktop setup? Easy: just buy one already made. Now with pre-made PC’s, you are going to have to save a bit more to get what you really want. I recommend if you are going the pre-built route to keep at least $1000 in the bank to start. But the more money you save the better desktop you can get. Because face it: it’s not worth it to spend $500 on a basic desktop PC. Either go big or go home.

Going high end means also getting better parts that can be easily be replaced and resold (even if it is defective). There are 1000’s of people on eBay daily looking for computer parts to reuse. With a pre-made computer all you would need to do is swap out parts as needed and it will last you a long time.

With that, here are a few decent desktop PC’s that are #Goals:
