For the last decade I saw that PC parts got more and more expensive, to the point that the whole comunity of pc gaming is in ruins, only people with deep pockets can afford to buy anything anymore.
I want to change that, I want to create a business that will sell, medium and high end gaming pcs at the absolute lowest price possible.
How will I do that? Simple, instead of buying the latest and most expensive pc parts, my company will buy second hand parts, and also broken parts, I know that people are afraid to buy something that was used, but that is where my company comes into play. All the components will be tested and repaired, will also come with a 2 years warranty. Gpus and cpus that are old but keep up very well with today games will be the target. As performance, we will try to achive over 144 fps in AAA games at 1440p.
But just second hand components will be not enough to achive the mighty goal, the pc case will be 3d printed to save cost.
This will not be just a simple resell of old components, the goal is to make cheap gaming pcs not some old potatos, of course we won't bother to use lowest end gpus, only what can get good performance and will last for the next 4-6 years.
Why do I need so much funding? Because I need:
- to rent space for working, big space needed, 2300$ a month( in my country);
- buy 50 3d printers( why 50?, 3d printers are slow), 500$x 50= 25,000$
- buy testing equipment and repair equipment for the broken pc components, over 95,000$, we will need soldering models for a lot of cpus and gpus models, they are expensive when added up ;
- hire at least 5 people to help me, salary in my country about 900$x5= 4,500$ a month;
- the rest of the funding is necessary to start buying the components.
Of course we won't be able to just buy broken and used components, there would not be enough for the demand, so that is why we will also provide a different service, a repair and build offer, people can send us the broken parts that they have, we will repair them and than use them to complete a build for them, the tax for repair will not go over 50$.
We will also offer another option called, " cash for your junk " we will buy your broken components at a fair price, of you just want to get rid of them.
The end price for our mid tier gaming pc would be 600$ - 800$, for 144fps on 1440p, I know it seems impossible but, just buying everything second hand and broken, the cost does go down.
We espect to make about 50 - 80 pc a month, it is not much, but the price will be much lower than before.
As far as I know, there is nobody that does exactly this, why would I? I am a student in my second year of University of Computers and Informatics, I also studied Computer Engeniring. I make my living as a freelancer, and no matter what my goal for a long time was to own a company, and I won' t stop no matter what wall I hit. From the young age of 6, I played with electronics, open them up, put them back on, and learned how they work.
Thank you for reading, not just a dream, but my absolute future, because I won't stop until it becomes reality.
