I'm looking to build a crypto mining rig. If I go into Micro Center, are sales associates capable of guiding me through the process? Or would I need to go in with a very detailed list of everything I need?
If you are looking to pick parts I would suggest taking a look at our PC part picker on our website, it will make recommendations and pick out parts that should work with the parts you put in. https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx
You can also visit a Micro Center store and speak with our BYO department, our associates would be able to assist with custom build systems / part recommendations directly in store, no appointment needed.
