Guinea Pig Builds Own Gaming PC
Florida guinea pig Max isn’t content to purchase his computers off the shelf or from a website. The tech hobbyist likes to build his towers from scratch using the best parts he can buy and afford. Why?
"Mostly for gaming," says friend and fellow PC builder Jonathan Tegan. "His current PC is a pretty sweet rig: NVidia graphics, 8 gigs of RAM, quad-core processor. He spent a little money on this one."
But on average, Max ends up saving about $800 by purchasing individual components online, rather than a retail machine. So what does the piggie play when his rig is up and running?
"Mostly Minesweeper,” says Tegan. “You obviously don’t need a dedicated graphics card for a dumb game like that. But I know Max likes to have power under the hood, just in case.”
