Each PC part carefully selected from CPU to PSU to OS
When you see a new computer advertised, they might mention the CPU, but do you really know what you're getting? What about all the rest of the parts - the graphics chip or video card, memory, motherboard, hard drive, DVD drive, power supply unit (PSU), case, connectors and more. Their features, who made them, are they current, upgradeable, expandable, is anything important missing and so on. Even with the CPU they mention what's the architecture, is it powerful enough or are you paying more for something you don't need and that money can be spent on another part to improve the overall system?
Other computer manufacturers give you a laundry list of parts in each hardware category from which to choose and design your own PC. They expect you to do the research and know which part to choose in each category and also to balance the overall system! That's kind of like assuming you know the PC hardware industry inside out!
We've done that research and designed a computer for you, first so you don't have to, and second so you know you're getting a great current computer, through and through, from CPU to PSU to OS, in a balanced system. Once you know the build, you will recognize the difference. Each and every part in our computers has been carefully selected for you based on our research of current technology, pc parts, part manufacturers, OS and other software, prices and availability.
You get a finely crafted performance machine with great features, built to last with very high quality durable parts, an upgradeable and expandable PC, offered to you at an affordable price. You'll enjoy the fun things more, for work it's a pleasure and you save money! See how we choose computer parts with our PC Parts Guides.

Easy to choose a CurrentBuild PC brand
We make it easy for you to choose the PC you need by building just two PC brands, our mainstream Sense PC brand and our gaming/workstation/server Dream PC brand.
Our performance mainstream Sense PC which we consider to be America's PC will be a great choice for many of you. We just launched Sense PC 2 with more memory and storage if you need it. By the way you can upgrade the Sense PC models anytime in the future to a gaming PC!
Under the Sense PC brand we have a low cost Sense mini PC with fast storage via an SDD, and Sense mini PC 2 with large storage, both for those looking for an excellent mainstream smaller size PC and don't see a future need for too much expansion. The Sense mini PC 3 is a lot like the Sense PC, a performance PC, just in a smaller size but still considerably upgradeable and expandable!
For a powerful PC or affordable gaming PC choose the Dream PC. For an ultra powerful and extreme gaming PC choose the Dream Big PC. If you're in the scientific, mathematical, technology or creative fields and looking for a serious workstation, a machine that will just crunch through workloads, the Dream PC WS is for you. Looking for a server you can build up or an even more intense workstation check out the Dream PC SV!
Just click on these PC models to see what they have been designed to do, and their carefully chosen parts. We consider both PC brands and their models to be the current technology standard in their class.
