Frequently Asked Questions
About Our Desktops
We sell made-to-order desktop PCs. It is unquestionably the best way to get a higher quality PC for a lower price.
We offer customers a way to choose their own PC specs, then our IT experts fully assemble their PC using the best brand components, such as Intel, ASUS, Samsung, Toshiba and Kingston , to name a few.
Mass-produced PCs are usually assembled from various parts in China and then sold to customers via retail channels with a high mark-up. Our IT technicians, on the other hand, personally assemble your PC in Australia from better components based on your requirements. We give you the best options for each component so that you can completely customise your PC to your needs. Alternatively you can just pick one of our desktop PC packages and buy it.
Your PC is loaded with Windows 10 Professional, and sent to you via Australia's best courier service for free.
Easy. We have two PC builders - one for home & office and one for gaming. You can start at the beginning of those step-by-step builders and select what you want at each stage, then review a summary and checkout. Alternatively, you can start with one of our PC packages which has options pre-selected, and you can purchase them as they are or make a few changes and then checkout.
Our number one goal is to make everything simple for you. If there is anything that you're not sure about - no problem! Just contact us and we'll give you clear options and help you get exactly what you need for the best price.
All our PCs come with the latest version of Windows 10 Pro 64 bit edition. Your genuine Microsoft product key is included on your tax invoice for your records.
Yes. Just select the Microsoft Office Pro 2016 software option when reviewing your PC options prior to checkout.
Compared to the big retailers, you will always save money by buying a PC from us with comparable specs. Exactly how much money depends on what you choose. The better the components you choose, the more you save. See our computer retail price comparison section, where we compare our products against several major retailers.
If a budget has been set for buying a PC, customers can either pocket the savings or a choose far superior machine for the same spend.
Almost always, this is a case of not comparing apples with apples. Sometimes retailers lead you to believe that something is an apple, but it is really an orange.
Surprisingly, there are many products that are presented as desktop PCs, yet are actually constructed from laptop/notebook parts, not desktop parts - and putting them inside a dekstop case isn't going to change that! Pretty sneaky, don't you think? You're essentially buying a laptop with inferior performance and durability compared to the genuine desktop PCs that we sell. If you've found a retail desktop listing somewhere else that you like, we welcome you to chat to us about it, because you will do better with us.
Absolutely. We are IT experts with years of experience in many sectors. If you need help with placing an order, or just have a general question, feel free to contact us via phone, live chat or email [email protected]
If you have specialised or industry-specific computer requirements that are beyond the scope of our online options, feel free to contact us to discuss what you need. We can customise a PC to suit your specific requirements.
Home, Office & Professional:
If you consider what you need the PC for, then selecting a PC will be very easy. Think of the programs you use and see what the minimum requirements are to run them. If unsure, chat to us. By considering what you need, you are less likely to waste money on thing you don't need. If we gave another tip, it would be this: with computers, there are often big jumps in performance that can be achieved by spending a little bit extra on certain components. Ideally, your desktop should last for years. If your budget allows, going up a level with a processor or selecting a bit more memory (RAM) or a Solid State Drive (SSD) will be worth it.
Never has marketing been such a dominant factor with consumer choices in any industry as it is in the gaming PC industry. People end up paying for things that literally make no difference whatsoever. If you want a plug-and-play system with excellent performance, don't get caught up in elaborate cooling systems, overclocking equations or 'NASA Program' marketing. We all have limited time and money to work with. So if you want to invest more in your gaming rig, this is our tip: spend it on the best graphics card and processor you can. Always prioritise these two elements, rather than fighter jet-styled RAM sticks or eking out a few more megabits from an industrial-strength SSD.
Yes, all of it. We are based in Sydney and provide PCs nation-wide, from capital cities to regional towns.
We accept Visa & Mastercard via our secure Commonwealth Bank payment gateway at checkout.
We send your PC via the method that best suits your location, which will differ. This is usually by courier, but can be AusPost Parcel Post in some cases due to their big resources. We personally contact you to discuss and confirm delivery details. We dedicate a set-time every day to check the status of each and every order being tracked to ensure smooth delivery.

Microsoft software is excluded from our warranty, but you can use your product key to get support directly from Microsoft should you have any Windows or Office issues.

We build our PCs so well that hardware failures are very rare. Nevertheless, things can happen.
We can organise a return with you in the event that the hardware is damaged on arrival during transit, or there is a hardware fault that has occurred under normal usage conditions that you notify us of within the warranty period. Returns will be accepted for the purpose of providing a replacement, not for a refund. We do not refund purchases.
