We can build an air-cooled or water-cooled with an all-in-one cooler and have it ready the same day if ordered at least 4 hours before the store closes!
To get started, you can pick out the PC parts using our Custom PC Builder, select the Pro Assembly option, and pay for it online. One of our build technicians will assemble your custom PC, then contact you once it’s ready for pick up. We’ve made the process super simple for you.
We also build custom water-cooled PCs with soft or hard tubing, but those are usually multi-day projects and require an in-store consultation with one of our build technicians to work out the details with you.
We offer five tiers of custom PC build service, depending on the build’s complexity, ranging from the standard air-cooled build Tier 1 through to Tier 5, a fully customized open loop PC with hard tubing. More info
on the tiers are as follows:

I want to order and have you build it, but there are no video cards available that I can select to complete the ordering process. What are my options? I was going for a Ryzen 7 on Gigabyte B550 motherboard from your Houston store.
@jones2126 just chiming in. GPUs are hard to come by right now as there is a shortage. Are you asking how you obtain a video card during the shortage or are you asking what would be the best GPU for your board and cpu once you are able to get a card?
If I decided to bring in parts to be assembled into a pc, some where bought at Microcenter and others elsewhere, would all the packaging, etc from the boxes be returned in the boxes that they came in?
I like to keep all the bags, unused parts like screws, etc., in the same box that they came out of. For example, the box the case came in would have all the packaging and unused screws, etc. back in it when I picked up the build pc?
The price would be $200, if I brought in my purchased copy of Windows 10? But could be more for some reason? Would know find out the total cost until after the build was done? Or just $150 if I wanted to install it at home?
I remember building 8 tier 3 in one day. That was crazy fun.
