Custom System Design and Building

Due to current massive product shortages on both current and last-generation components, we have temporarily suspended custom builds: simply put, we can’t build you anything right now because we simply don’t have access to parts. We hope to see this change in the coming months, but until then you may want to consider working with system integrators that have direct access to manufacturer supply.

We do still offer bring-your-own-parts (BYOP) services; if you’ve managed to acquire all the parts you wanted for your build we can assemble, set up, and test the system for $100-$200, depending on complexity.

You already know that The Computer Cellar offers a wide range of professionally refurbished desktop and laptop computers that are suitable for most tasks.

But sometimes you have something specific in mind.  You want a monster gaming rig, a number cruncher, or a super quiet media center unit.

There’s plenty of boutiques out there, some local, that offer custom design and building. And most of them do great work at fair prices.  But it’s also a spot where we can help you too. Instead of an impersonal phone conversation with a techie on the other end, or an order-by-numbers web site, you can (if needed) come in and sit down with us, talk about your needs, and explore your options and costs.

In the end, you can get the perfect, custom-built machine, or you might discover that you may only need a simple refurbished computer, saving you money; and you get to help support your local small business as well!
