There are many advantages to having a new machine custom built, as opposed to pulling something off the shelf that’s been “stamped out of a mold”.
Custom made around your needs.
We can create something specifically for your needs. Marvin, in Rockport, Indiana, needed a machine to support up to four monitors at a time to enhance his stock trading from home. Since you cannot buy something like that locally, we found just the right video card for Marvin that’s capable of supporting four monitors at a time. We built the rest of his system around his needs including a super fast processor and ultra quiet case fans.
We give you freedom of choice.
You have the freedom of choice. Every manufacturer, whether it is Dell, Gateway, HP, Compaq, Acer (etc) will decide to build a specific number of desktop computers in a given week. They will get on the horn and say “Who has the cheapest hard drives?” Whoever raises their hand wins the bid. Then unknown to you, you’ve purchased a desktop with the absolute cheapest hard drive to trust with your families photos. When we custom build your new machine, we have the choice of using only the best possible parts, such as a Western Digital Black Hard Drive with a five year warranty, as opposed to a White Label hard drive with a six month warranty. An ASUS motherboard with an AMD Ryzen 7 processor instead of a generic motherboard and processor. Because we design a personalized system, the sky is the limit.
Let's Keep You Safe!
We want you to be protected. We’ll install and properly configure two programs that will help keep you safe. Windows Defender is a free anti-virus / anti-spyware program that does everything on its own. Without you telling it to anything, it will update itself with the latest virus definitions, every day. It’s also constantly monitoring what’s going on in your operating system, ready to leap into action whenever something dangerous is about to happen.
While we previously utilized a program entitled “Avast”, we believe that recent improvements with Windows Defender offers the same if not better protection. Additionally, we found that Avast’s prompts to purchase additional software had become too intrusive and crossed the line. Windows Defender will not prompt you to make a purchase.
The second program is called Malwarebytes, worth it’s weight in gold. When used regularly the free version is an excellent second line of defense detecting and removing malicious software (called “malware”) and other advanced threats. The premium version stops malware in real time, before it can be a danger to your computer. Additionally, the premium version prevents access to and from known malicious websites. Think of the premium version as a good parent, preventing you from going somewhere harmful, not just suggesting you should not.
We’ll install and properly configure both of these programs that we have thoroughly tested to help keep your computer safe.
What Else Might You Need?
When we build a custom computer, we’ll install and configure just about any type of software that you might need. Unless otherwise specified, we install and properly configure the following programs that we have thoroughly tested and sincerely believe that you will find useful.
Libre Office: Unless you have presented a computer from which we can extract a valid product key for Microsoft Office, we will install and properly configure Libre Office, which is the free equivalent to Microsoft Office. Libre Office will open, edit and save documents, spreadsheets and presentations in Microsoft format. Except it’s free. Many of our college students prefer Libre Office over Microsoft Office for it's functionality.
Computer Dave Rescue Calling Card: You know we have a 100% guarantee on our work. right? Just in case you get your new computer home and have any questions or problems, we install a program on your system that, with your permission, allows your computer to be connected with ours. It’s as if one of our Technicians is sitting there next to you. We will be able to see what’s on the screen, move your cursor, and correct the problem. This service is absolutely free for the first 30 days after we have finished the work.
We also install utilities that help you create and copy CD’s and DVD’s and play DVD movies. Ask a Computer Dave Technician for details.
What happens to your stuff?
So you’ve decided to have us build you a new computer to your specifications. What about the data on your old computer? Know that your important data is kept safe. We utilize a unique “Secure Server” that functions like a bank vault. Metaphorically, we create a lock box within the vault that has your name on it. All of your important data, such as your pictures, music, documents and video’s are stored within this vault as we build your computer. When we finish, we put your data back where we found it on your new computer, safe and sound.
Time For A Test Drive
After we have completed building your new computer, we will sit down with you in our showroom and (with your new computer plugged up and turned on) we’ll show you all of the work we have preformed. We want you to be comfortable with your new computer before you get it home, and to have the opportunity to have any questions answered.
We Guarantee It!
We are the only repair service in Owensboro with a 100% guarantee. If you are not absolutely satisfied with any part of our work, we make it right at no additional cost to you, period. In addition to that, if you have any questions or problems, you just call our cell phone number. You’ll get Computer Dave or one of our knowledgeable technicians, not a call center or a robot.
