My name is Luke and I'm a McGill computer science student with lots of experience building desktop computers. I've built over 15 custom desktop computers from part picking to overclocking. I'm offering to order, build, and sell a custom built computer to anyone interested. If you're interested in learning to build a computer, I can help you build your computer in front of you on weekends. It's a very simple process:
1. Contact me and explain what you want in a build. It can be as vague as "I want a gaming computer" to as precise as a full parts list. Either way I will make up or review the parts list and provide consultation. You do not need to pay any money up to this point.
2. Once we've agreed on a build and you're satisfied, it's time to order the parts. This can be done however you're most comfortable with. If you're comfortable with paying me up front and letting me order them to my address I'm happy to handle everything and try to get the best deals possible. If you're not entirely comfortable with that, you can order them yourself, and stop by for a visit to drop off the parts.
3. I will build the computer within 1 week (the soonest I have free time). I charge $100 for a simple construction. I scrape off the factory thermal paste and apply my own to the CPU to ensure temperature is not an issue. Factory paste tends to perform much worse. If you want additional features like overclocking, sli graphics setup, gpu overclock, ram overclock, etc I will charge another $20 for each.
4. I call you to come pick up your custom built computer. I will demonstrate it to you first, then you can take it home. If the computer fails within the first 30 days I will take a look at it for free. However I cannot to afford to replace any faulty hardware, but I will make any repairs within my power free of charge.
If interested please start the discussion via email. Remember consulting is free if you want to make sure I know my stuff first!
