What to buy

The answer to this question is obviously very different for everyone. At Titan Tech we like to look at things on a "Price to FPS" ratio.

First it is important to understand what you are going to be doing with the PC and what games you are going to be playing. Games like GTA V, Witcher 3, Forza etc are very GPU intensive which means they benefit greatly from having a good GPU (Graphics Card). While other games like Valorant, Overwatch, CSGO, League of Legends etc are not so GPU heavy so having a better CPU can be advantageous.

A good way to see what sort of performance you will get out of a PC is googling the CPU and GPU on youtube with the name of your game, for example if I was looking at buying a PC with a Ryzen 5 5600X and an RTX 3060 to play Warzone, I would search "5600X and 3060 warzone benchmark" on youtube, and see how many FPS you will get.

Once you have found some benchmarks you are happy with you can start looking for PCs with those specs.

We have found the sweet spot for gaming PC's right now is around $2,000-$2,500. This will always get you a great PC which can run every AAA game at the highest settings with decent FPS. While it is always great to have an expensive PC that can run 1440P/4k games at high FPS, not everyone needs to spend that much if the games you are going to be playing won't utilise the PC to it's maximum load.

TL:DR - The best way to choose a budget is by knowing what PC will work for your needs, generally $2,000 is a great starting point.

In our opinion the best way to choose a PC is to understand what you are going to be doing with it. Some games are very GPU intensive and others are very CPU intensive. We would love to help you choose the right PC, just give us a call on 1800 011 341 or message our facebook page!

Desktop computers tend to last a long time, especially if they’re well-maintained. However, there’s also no denying that they don’t last forever. Desktop computers have a projected average lifespan of about three years, but they can remain operational for several years after that.

In fact, according to Business News Daily, most desktops can actually survive around five to eight years, depending on the components that you’re able to upgrade.

While desktop computers have exceptionally sturdy hardware, the accumulation of software, files, and updates would eventually take a toll on them. 

For instance, resource-intensive applications running simultaneously can pressure your computer’s CPU or central processing unit.

This causes your unit to produce heat, which will wear out the internal components of your computer.

And even if the cooling unit can mitigate the heating, it’ll gradually collect dust, and, over time, the vents will clog up and limit air circulation. 

In this case, every effect that one component has to deal with can create a chain reaction in other components.

Before you know it, your computer no longer runs as fast and as seamlessly as it used to when it was still new.

If you haven’t made up your mind about whether to get a laptop or a desktop computer for home use, then you might want to look into their respective lifespans as a deciding factor.

That is, of course, if portability and space aren’t an issue at all.

Take note that laptops have a generally shorter lifespan than desktops. More specifically, laptops can last an average of only two to three years.

This is because while desktops have larger CPUs, laptops are more compact and have much less ventilation. In addition, the fact that they’re portable makes laptops susceptible to more gradual wear and tear, too.

The difference between these two devices in terms of their life cycle is something you’ll have to consider, along with their other pros and cons.

It would help if you also thought about your short-term and long-term plans regarding computer usage and budget.

For instance, you’ll have to get a laptop if you need portability, but that could also mean saving up for a new laptop in two years if the old one decides to give up.

Computer Hope shares this checklist for when you’d need to upgrade your computer. If you’ve ticked at least three of these items, then it’s probably time to replace your old computer with a new one.

But if you have only checked one or two, you may want to hold off a bit, especially if you are tight on funds. Instead, it may be a good idea to get certain upgrades.

Upgrade your desktop computer if:

-Your computer is at least four years old.

-You need better hardware, like more slots for RAM.

-The Internet has gradually taken longer to load. 

-Your computer is too slow for your needs.

-New software barely meets its minimum system requirements.

-You want to upgrade to the latest or at least to a more recent operating system.

Many experts recommend upgrading or replacing your home computer only when it stops meeting your needs and when the operating system becomes a security risk.

If your unit is adequate, can still do the things you expect it to do, and can support your operating system and software requirements, then there ought to be no rush, even if it’s already five or ten years old.

But, of course, the quality of your old computer and what you use it for have everything to do with it.

Meanwhile, Small Business Chronicle explains that computers are typically replaced for convenience and allow users or employees to take advantage of the business world’s latest operating systems and features.

Shipping

Yes, we ship all over the world. However extra shipping costs will apply, and will be added at checkout. Some countries may include an extra shipping and handling fee.

We do have a lot of pre-built systems in stock ready to ship within 1-3 days depending on stock levels. But as a blanket rule please assume all orders will take around 3-4 weeks to account for any possible delays or busy periods. Usually orders will be ready sooner then this but we do not want to let you down in case of any unpredicted delays.

Shipping times shown on checked out are delivery times, this does not mean you orders will be ready in the shown time frame, the shipping ETA is simply showing you how long it will take you to get your order after it has been built / dispatched.

Please call us on 1800 011 341 and double check before you place your order so we can tell you exactly how long it will take.

We use all major carriers including TNT, Startrack, Toll IPEC, and local courier partners depending on who can get your PC to you the fastest and safest. If you have a preferred courier please contact us before placing your order and we can organise it.

Ordering & Warranty

Yes of course! We offer many custom build options from AMD to Intel, from workstations to gaming rigs, from maximum RGB to black steatlh builds.

Give us a call on 1800 011 341 and we can discuss your dream rig!

If you are having issues with your new PC please call us immediately on 1800 011 341 and let us know. When a lot of customers have issues they try googling solutions or just put up with it, but we DO NOT want you to do that, if you have any issues at all we want to repair your PC or replace it if needed.

We only accept some change of mind returns and we will generally charge up to a 25% restocking fee depending on the circumstances. We do not do this to make money, we do this because selling a PC means we have to pay various fees including non refundable payment processing fees (1.8%), Labour fee to build the PC (Generally $60-$120), Shipping and handling costs ($20-$50), Plus return shipping costs (Another $20-$50). So it generally costs at bare minumum $180 to build, ship and return a PC. This is a modest estimate not including marketing, rent and other general business overheads.

We will always try to put customer satisfaction over making money but at the end of the day we are a business and we need turn a profit.

All of our computers come with 2 full years RTB (Return to base) warranty, Which means if you have any issues in the first 2 years we can help you repair or replace it.

However most parts in our computers are covered from 3-5 years warranty so if anything goes wrong outside of your 2 year RTB warranty period, do not worry, it is likely you can still get it repaired under manufacturer warranty.

We are happy to help with this process if you are not comfortable going straight through the manufacturer. You will be required to pay shipping costs to us and we charge from $30-$50 labour fee's replacing the parts. This only applies if your Titan Tech warranty has expired and we are helping you claim manufacturer warranty and repair the PC for you.

If you are buying specific parts please refer to the manufacturers website and find your exact product to find out how much warranty it comes with.
