Another advantage of HP prebuilds is that they’re very easy to upgrade. HP has designed their builds in a way that even beginners and non-techy people will be able to find and replace parts without making it look like rocket science.
Acer is another big name when it comes to computers. Who hasn’t heard of Acer? They are one of, if not, the best gaming PC providers (amongst other gaming related items).
Similar to HP, Acer has a brand name and reputation to protect. You can ensure that every PC you buy from Acer is top of the line in terms of quality. Every elements of the build is carefully selected by professionals to create PCs for all sorts types of gamers on any budget.
Acer offers a lot of budget-friendly options so if you’re looking to buy a new PC but don’t want to spend a lot of money, we already did an extensive review on the best prebuilt gaming PCs under $1000 and an Acer build owns the second spot.
iBUYPOWER is a rising star in the past few years. They specialize in prebuilds and every build is loaded with power. You’ll often find that most models sell out quite fast as the demand is very high.
Initially there were some issues with their support team but the company has been actively improving each element of their business and by listening to their customers they managed to scale their business effectively.
Most builds by iBUYPOWER are in the low/mid tier level in terms of pricing. You can find really good computers for less than $1000 but also some amazing builds at around $1500 (still a lot cheaper than some of the bigger brands).
The only downside is that parts might get switched with other parts that are equal in terms of capabilities. People who want a specific graphics card or CPU might not get what they want due to them switching out parts from time to time. Not a big deal breaker as you won’t lose any performance at all.
We’ve actively reviewed CyberPowerPC builds and all we can say is that we are impressed.
Similar to iBUYPOWER, CyberPowerPC mostly makes builds that are sub $1500 and are designed to be powerful all-round rigs capable of handling pretty much anything a regular gamer would throw at it (not literally).
That being said, they do have some epic builds that cost a lot more than $1500 that will blow some of the big brands out of the water in terms of performance.
The only downside here is that similar to iBUYPOWER, parts might be switched out with others when the original components aren’t available. These are not lower quality parts, they just create different combinations as part shortages do happen from time to time.
The best prebuilt gaming PC brand is Alienware. Alienware is a brand by Dell and is famous around the world for their sleek alien-themed designs and powerful rigs that will last for years.
Although the most expensive prebuilt PC brand on this list, Alienware is all about aesthetic and performance. These machines are designed for people that want to have only the best of the best.
The newer builds all feature innovative mechanics such as the Tobii eye tracker that tracks your eye movement and allows for facial recognition so you don’t need to worry about passwords.
