For our Custom PC's... we take the
time to research the products we sell. We don't just sell anything to
make a buck. If you see a system or part on our
site, it is because we
have taken the time to research and see if the
or part is worth spending your money on. We don't want you to get your
new computer home and have something fail on it 6 months down the road.
We realize that there are rare instances when a quality name brand part
will malfunction. We try to counter this problem by testing each and
every system before it leaves our facility. We also try to carry parts
that come with the longest manufacturer warranties we can get, so that
"if" something should go wrong, (even after our warranty) that you are
still covered, and that
part can be replaced with little or no cost to you. If you are sold
quality components with good warranties, we see no need for selling
extended warranties. That is money that should stay in your pocket!
We offer custom built personal computers and servers for a reasonable
price. We are a full service company, offering sales and technical
support. We can build you a custom system from the basics, to a super
computer for an amount that is affordable to even the smallest business
or household. We specialize in Custom built PC's to your specifications,
and we can help your company with its networking
company takes pride in customer satisfaction. We want you to be happy
with your computer purchase, and offer complete customer support. If you
are inexperienced in operating your new PC, we can help you. A customer
should always feel free to call, if they have a question. Upgrades are
also available. Bring us your old PC and let us look at your upgrade
Why should I buy a Custom PC?
You have asked a good question and we
hope to answer that for you!
So you are in the market for a computer. Maybe you have had one before
or maybe this is your first computer purchase. The first thought would
be..."If I am going to pay this much money for a computer I am going to
buy a well known name brand computer."
We certainly want you to buy the best computer for your money!
first thought is to start looking in the paper for those Super Store
Sales, but is this the best system for your money? They make those
computers sound so good, with and offer that is too good to pass up.
Let's examine those ads for a second. First off look at the Retail
Value of that computer and remember you are going to pay that price at
the checkout, not the sales ad price, and you will pay the appropriate
Sales Tax! Then you are given your store rebate form to fill out. This
rebate could be a good savings IF you remember to fill it out and send
it in with the required proof of purchase. If you remember good for you!
If you don't Great for the
Retailer! Then in some cases they also offer you a rebate of
considerable amount if you sign up with a certain Internet Service
Provider (ISP). So you sign up for it, and about 3 months down the line
you are not happy with this service. If you cancel you have to pay back
the money for the rebate. So is that really a savings? We don't think
CX Creative doesn't offer rebates, we think that if the computer is of
good quality and at a good price, you don't need to offer rebates.
Another thing that will happen is the store will try to sell you an
extended warranty on this computer. This is a big money maker for them,
and really unnecessary. Most technical issues with hardware generally
happen within the first few months of use. After the first year if there
are any problems, they are generally software related, or from something
like lightening, or power surges. And in those cases, those are not
usually covered under any warranty.
We offer a one (1) year Warranty for parts and labor on systems we
build. After that year is up, most of the parts have their own
warranties, from 2 to 5 yrs. In some cases Lifetime warranties. Those
are generally replacement warranties.
If you buy a computer today, and keep it for a year, then at the end of
a year you are going to want to upgrade it. As components get bigger and
better, so does software. So if you have an older computer you are going
to find it harder and harder to find software that will run on your
system. New software will tell you what requirements it needs, and if
you system isn't quite up to speed, upgrading is the next option.
Upgrades are not generally covered on an extended warranty. And in some
rare cases, they can't upgrade the board without replacing other parts
as well, and by the time you get
through with your upgrade you could buy
a new computer.
some manufacturers, they build proprietary NON Standard computers. What
does that mean? Well it means that if you decide you want to increase
your Ram, or put in a bigger hard drive, you have to buy the EXTREME
premium priced components ordered special from the manufacturer. And in
some cases they didn't build your computer to be upgradeable, thus you
are forced to purchase a new one. You will learn real quick that going
to a store to get your parts is impossible.
We offer computers that are built with Industry Standard equipment. This
means they are interchangeable, with any brand name part you wish to
use. And generally we build them so they have lots of room to grow,
either by putting in extra ram chips or even more than one hard drive,
or CD Rom.
Aren't Custom Built PC's more expensive?
Not if you do your homework. First off
the words "Custom PC's" makes you think custom meaning special more
expensive parts. This is just not so.
A custom built computer is just that. It is custom built to suit your
needs. It doesn't mean the parts are any more expensive
than the components in a Name Brand system. It does mean you have more
options. The most important part of a custom built system is it is more
upgradeable than most name brands.
We have had many customers frustrated because they bought a computer at
a store, and when they wanted to upgrade found out the board was maxed
out. And the cost of putting in a new board is as much a purchasing a
new system. Where as a custom pc is built with a much more upgrade
At CX Creative we are particular about the components we use. We
research the market and find components that offer the best warrantees.
In some cases a warranty for some components can be 3 to 5 yrs and in
the case of Ram memory, we only buy Lifetime warranty. That combined
with our (1) year warranty on the entire system, means there should be
no reason to get an extended warranty.

So with that said, you can put "that"
money back in your pocket.
Now let me ask you, do you know the
name brand of the components in your Store Bought computer? I bet you
don't. We tell you what is in your custom built system, along with
explaining why we used those components. You also will receive the
Drivers software along with your Operating System software. This makes
working out software issues much easier than in some of the bigger name
brand machines. They have proprietary software, all combined on one CD,
and call it a restore CD. So if there is a software problem they tell
you to put the restore CD in the drive and follow the prompts. However,
one customer we had was alarmed to see it completely reformat their
drive and reinstall from scratch. Thus losing all their files.

In many cases, when you buy a Store PC, you don't get the software at
all. They preload it at the factory. Then if there is ever a problem you
have to call the manufacturer and have them send you a restore CD, than
in some cases they want to charge you for it.
At CX Creative, you get your licensed copy of Windows with the CD.
Drivers are also included, for all the hardware that is installed.
Overall, buying a Custom Built computer is much more reliable and in the
long run will probably serve you better.

discount, and a special discount to Educational institutions.
