So I'm planning on upgrading my gaming PC soon, around Christmas time. i just need some opinions on how to upgrade it.
1. The first option is to send the PC back to who I bought it from (It is a pre-built PC by a company named Xidax). There they will get a list of the parts I want and order them, install them, and test the PC. I will obviously pay for the parts and the shipping, but the rest is free of charge (Building and testing). I will send the PC to them so I have to cover shipping and shipping insurgence to their HQ, it will then take 4-5 business days to upgrade it and send it back to me, I will pay for shipping again.
2. Option 2 is to buy the parts myself and install them myself, however their is no warranty on the PC once I do that, for the first option the Warranty continues. I will pay for the parts myself but there is no shipping cost. I myself am very inexperienced at building/ upgrading PCs, because I haven't done either. However, I have google and my friend built his own PC so he knows what hes doing, and there will be no charge to him of course.
The main thing is the warranty on the PC and the testing. I'm just trying to consider my options.
Also when is the best time to buy PC parts. Like around Black Friday or cyber Monday? Or around Christmas? I'm just trying to get some good deals. Most if not all purchases will be made on amazon.
