With everyone stuck in covid quarantine, people are looking for things that they can do inside. Many are picking up gaming, and in numbers many are switching to PC gaming. With the addition of online school, having a PC is even more important. For Senior Rafael Baltazar, that's something he’s had since he was going into sixth grade.
“I built my first custom PC the summer before sixth grade, more than six years ago.”
Baltazar is one of many people who decided to build their own PC. Instead of buying a prebuilt computer from a single brand, these people are buying different parts all from different brands, and assembling it to create their computer. Many people chose to do this because they can decide what they want their computer for, if you need a computer for gaming then you can buy parts to handle that. Deciding what you want is what brings the interest in building PCs.
Baltazar got into building PC’s way back in the summer of sixth grade. His first build took him a while to complete, but now he says the learning experience was worth it.
