NEW ! Quick Buyer’s Guide to Build A Custom PC for $400-$1500
December is telling us we are coming very close to the end of another great year for the custom computer market, as well as for the people who are into the apocalypse and stuffs.
With the expectation of technology changes every year, I really can’t wait for the next big thing in 2013 (hopefully not the world end, it would be kinda inconvenient for the holiday shopping).
Besides exciting hardware parts, we will have so many thing to keep us away from the social life such as Starcraft II : Heart of the Swarm at the door, followed right by Tomb Raider, GTA 5, Crysis 3, The Last of Us, Dead Space and a bunch of new gadget to serve the geek life of a pc builder. The Wii U is an exception, it’s too much fun :D !
The Sleeping Dogs game alone took me several weeks even though the gameplay is just 15 hours long, but it was a lot of fun yet I don’t have much of a time to game as I used to (managing all three websites at the Arts of Martial Arts, Geekdouken and Custom PC Guide is like having a small dose of cardiovascular training everyday, you see!)
Now most of us do not want to wait until 2013 to build a computer, and that could be a good thing. You will be able to exclude yourself from the early adopter list and avoid all hell that may break loose with the initial bugs of the new tech.
If you have to build a system today you more likely to get components that have been tested by thousands other people and each part should definitely be future-proof for the next year challenges.
More importantly, the probability to put together one best bang for the bucks system is a lot higher than with the more expensive new release. Hence, I sum up this small list of the best-value computer hardware parts to close up the BYOPC year of 2012. It is a source of advice or feedback from my tech-savvy friends and many of CustomPcGuide .net readers. Thank you all very much!
For you my friend, I hope you enjoy your stay here and I look to see your System Build in the Showcase section of our Forum !

There isn’t a reference when it comes to chassis choice.
Each one of us has different taste and it’s really more of a personal decision. After all I guess choosing the chassis is one of the toughest mind-blowing commitment you have to make for your configuration.
These are the most loved chassis this year :) !
