Things to consider
We understand you may be struggling to get the parts for an ideal price or might not be up to the challenge of building your own gaming PC. Whatever the reason, there are benefits to buying a 3060/ 3060 Ti prebuilt, with fewer compatibility issues and the stress of having to learn a new skill completely removed from the equation altogether.
Like with anything PC-related, there are a few areas you need to consider before buying, an RTX 3060 gaming PC isn’t going to be cheap, so we will run through some key things to consider to ensure you walk away with the best product for your money.
Why buy an RTX 3060/ 3060 Ti prebuilt gaming PC?
At the time of launch, the RTX 3060 GPU was considered the entry-level for Nvidia’s newest 30-series line of cards. That is no longer the case but even so, the RTX 3060 and 3060 Ti GPUs offer incredible frame rates and graphics for those who wish to game at 1080p. These two models are the new mid-range champions, offering those who cannot afford the RTX 3070 and above something more affordable and yet still decent for gaming. The Ti offers slightly more but you do pay extra for the privilege of slightly more FPS and which you need ultimately comes down to your budget and gaming requirements.
RTX 3060 and RTX 3060 Ti prebuilts tend to come with mid-range processors, 8-16GB of RAM, and around 1TB of fast storage. These systems are no slouch and can give you a seriously good gaming experience, with low to medium workloads also being a possibility.
RTX 3060 & 3060 Ti prebuilt gaming PC vs custom build
We always recommend that you build your own computer here at WePC and that is for one simple reason – value. It is no secret that you can squeeze in better hardware for your cash when building your own system, with the markup on prebuilt computers usually costing the same amount as an entire component ($100-$300).
While the performance of these 3060 prebuilt gaming PCs is great, when building your own you could in theory include a better CPU or GPU into your computer without spending more. This means you could get even better performance for your hard-earned cash, get better in-game results, and future-proof your investment for longer.
The main selling point behind a prebuilt is it saves you the hassle. We understand that not everyone knows how to build a computer and may not even have the time to learn this new skill, so the convenience of a prebuilt makes a lot of sense. Of course, there are many more benefits to buying a prebuilt gaming PC from manufacturers, obviously, it takes the stress away from finding all the compatible components, while also preventing damage to said components when the time comes to build it.
With a prebuilt gaming PC, you are going to be able to send it back to the manufacturer if anything goes wrong. Furthermore, if you feel you need an upgrade, suppliers will often do this for you or at least insist you send it to them for an upgrade. Manufacturers will also dish out a warranty, usually covering parts and labor for around a year but some companies offer impressive warranties and you can always spend extra on insurance, giving you a lengthy/ lifetime warranty.
A prebuilt from the biggest manufacturers around the world aren’t just packaged nicely for you either, they normally stress test the system to ensure the components are working before shipping and that it performs as it should. You will also receive your system with software, usually with Windows and drivers pre-installed, so you can simply plug it in and start downloading games.
