The prices of mother boards and other assorted computer parts have also decreased significantly. Well, you have to remember that the branded computer manufacturers are in the business to make their own profits. That is why good computers remain expensive despite the reduction that we have been witnessing.
Fortunately, you can still avail yourself of a good computer system these days. You can do this by sourcing your computer from dealers who specialize in wholesale computer parts. A lot of people are sourcing out and building their own computer through wholesale computer parts. However, some folks think that these parts are in some way inferior to the parts available in branded computers. To be honest, I used to be one of those people.
In the past, I believed that cheap and inefficient computer parts manufacturers use wholesale computer parts to offload their inferior stock on unsuspecting customers. However, my views about this issue changed when my computer broke down. I got a quote that was very high when I took it to the authorized dealer. I had no choice but to go to a local wholesale computer parts dealer because my funds are low and I desperately need to have my computer fixed.
I was amazed when I saw that this wholesale computer parts dealer has his own repair service. The repair quote I got was a fraction of what the authorized dealer had given me after they opened up my computer and diagnosed the problem. Naturally, I was curious as to what had created the difference, so I suspiciously eyed the wholesale computer parts on display. The dealer sensed that I was suspicious so he opened up my computer to show me that the replacement parts were the same with what my existing computer had. He willingly explained the wholesale computer parts business to me when I asked him how this was possible.
He patiently explained that computer parts manufacturers usually manufacture more parts than required by an order from a branded computer manufacturer. This is an in-built quality control feature that ensures that a sudden spurt in demand or a quality crisis can be handled quickly and efficiently. When the order is processed without incident, the excess parts are then offloaded to dealers for a huge discount. These equally good computer parts are then sold for a discount to users like you and me.
