Hello, I am interested in building a computer at the Microcenter store and I need to know how much it costs to have it done. I already have the parts selected, and I will come to the store to get them, but I need to know the price of the service and if its a flat fee or by the hour.

    Hello @Marietsy! Welcome to the Community. 

    It's a flat fee based on what "tier" of build you need us to do. You can find a breakdown on pricing at the different tiers and what they cover here:

    Just scroll down the page and click on each tier to view the exact details. 
  • Thank you very much for this info!
  • @TSTonyV, I am new to pc building and would like to build my first ever one myself, and I was wondering if it is possible to get help choosing the parts and help with building the pc there at the store?

    We have associates who specifically work in the Build Your Own section who can assist you with putting a build list together and figuring out exactly which parts are appropriate for your needs. If you want us to help you with assembly, only the service/repair desk can assist with that and there will be labor charges for us to do it. Unfortunately we don't have a one-on-one type service where we build it with you, you would just have to leave it with us then pick it back up at a later date. 

    That said, there are a ton of great tutorials on Youtube for assembling your own computer. It's how I learned back in 2012 when I built my first PC. It seems daunting at first but in reality, it's not all the difficult. I like to call it "electronic legos," because as long as you take your time and are careful, all you really need to know is where to plug things in. Even beginners and first time builders can get everything put together without a problem if you follow a good guide.
