Let's build the computer of your dreams!
We can build your next custom PC, workstation, or server. If you can dream it, we can build it.
Our custom build service is perfect for beginners and advanced customers!
- Beginners can consult with our techs and discuss what is important to you, how you'll be using your PC, and which parts are right for your system.
- Advanced builders—you know what you want already. You tell us what you want, what you need, and if there's any special instructions, let us know.
Pick your parts, add this product to your cart, and we'll assemble your PC for you.
Have an expert build your PC
For 35 years, Central Computers has been building custom systems for engineers, gamers, and creative professionals. Building dream machines for the most demanding users has always been at the heart of our business. There’s nothing we love more than building computers that you can’t find in a store, or even get from another system builder.
We don’t put limits on your build. You have total control over all specs. For example, with GPU’s, we offer you much more choice than what tier of performance. We offer you the choice of any manufacturer, any model, multi-GPU setups, overclocking, and more. And if you want a system that looks as good as it performs, you have no limits in deciding if you want your system decked out with RGB lighting elements, color-match components, and a window to admire your choices…or if you want a sleek and discrete look that doesn’t announce the power within.
If you have exacting standards for exactly how you want your system built, we will build to your spec. Choose exactly which make/model you want for every single component in the system and how everything is configured. We love building systems for people who know exactly what they want and turn their vision into reality.
And we love to offer the benefit of our experience and knowledge to customers who want expert advice on how to spec their dream system. We offer tailored consultation to find out what you want to do with your system, what your budget is, what your future plans are, and anything else we need to know to build your perfect machine.
So whether you know exactly what you want, but don’t have the time or desire to deal with building a system, or know what you need to do but don’t know enough to spec the right machine for yourself, we have you covered.
Which tier is right for you?
Our Standard Custom Build Service is perfect for a standard PC. Whether your system is a home or office desktop, gaming machine, or development workstation, with a Standard Custom Build, you get to choose a completely custom spec, formatting/partitioning, and other essential elements of system design.
Our Advanced Custom Build Service helps you take the next step in customization and spec a multi-GPU build, RAID storage, rackmount form factor servers, and more.
Choose your OS: Windows or Linux
Operating systems are a choice in themselves. Our standard builds don't include operating systems because you have the freedom to install your own or choose an OS for us to install for you.

Can I bring in my own parts for you to build?
Yes! We don't provide a warranty on the parts since they were purchased elsewhere, but we do build for you. The build fee starts at $99 (special builds and extra requests may cost more). You can bring in all of the parts or buy some from our stores.
During COVID-19, we will add additional time to your build in order to quarantine, disinfect, and take additional measures to keep staff, customers, and our community as safe as possible.
What is the typical build time for assembly and delivery after I complete my purchase?
The assembly time is typically 3 to 4 days for a custom desktop with an additional 24 hour burn test. All together, it can take a maximum of 5 days (but it usually takes less).
What is a "24 hour burn test"?
This is a test that runs your computer at maximum stress levels for 24 hours. This test proves to us that your parts are all working well and won't break down as soon as you take it home.
Can I ask for special instructions or special builds?
We have build custom systems with custom water cooling, multiple hard drives, RAID setups, and other specialties in the past. These builds are more complicated and can require special knowledge so the labor cost will be higher than the standard build fee. Some stores have technicians who are more experienced in some of these builds than others, so call your local store to find out details and get a quote today.
Do you have a rush service?
Our rush fee is an additional $49. This rush fee does not guarantee a build date, but moves your system to the front of the line as the next system to be started.
What if there's a problem with my build after I bring it home?
Our technicians are available 7 days a week. You can call any of our stores and speak to a technician on the spot and, if it's a simple issue, they can help you troubleshoot over the phone. Otherwise, bring your computer to any store and we'll take a look at it.
