Computers by CSIM©
Computers, once thought to be just for hard-core gamers or people with a need
for bleeding edge technology, are now often a better buy for your money –
compared to the cost cutting, overly competitive, name brand computer companies
out there. Our Predator
Custom Computers eats the others for breakfast.
I know some of you ask… “What happens if we go out of business?” or
you need something fixed and we are not close by. Well even the best of
companies have gone out of business, so a big computer manufacturer’s name
is no protection or not much help there. We use industry standard components
from the best and longest-lived manufactures in the industry.
Many of the named brand computer companies use standard to
substandard parts in their machines.
These computer companies buy from all the manufacturers out there and
commonly use proprietary components, which are difficult to service and at
times totally incompatible with other components. When we sell a computer,
not only do we use standard components, we give you a full set of books so
that anyone who you should trust working on your computer could access the
correct information to fix whatever problems might arise.
More manuals are always available on the internet from these
component companies… you’re not left guessing what component the name
brand computer company got for a deal the day they built your computer.
How are our computers customized?
First we start with a case that
can handle the cooling needs of all the hot equipment that we put inside.

processors - Yes they have some good competition but guess whose processors are
used to test and develop all the major programs on? Intel!
The Intel processor we use comes with a 3yr. manufacturer warranty.

components from Creative Labs, IBM, Crucial Memory, Seagate, NVIDIA, 3dfx, ATI,
Sony, Teac, Princeton, Pioneer, Microsoft ... to name a few. We shop for the
best bang for the buck that is available at build time - all while keeping in
mind the uses the Computer is being made for.
we load the appropriate operating system for your needs – you are not forced
to use the latest and greatest OS that requires you to beta test something that
was not ready for release yet. Windows 98SE is generally the best OS for most
computers if you require the use of legacy software. If you don't have legacy software and want access to more memory and
resources - then Windows 2000 Pro is a good solution. In certain instances
Windows XP Professional may be a solution for your needs. Windows
XP Professional has the same restrictions as Windows 2000 Pro. Not all tools,
workarounds and "gotcha's" have been documented as yet for XP - depending on
your use this may be a handicap. Win XP home has too many security risks and
exploits hard coded into it so we don't recommend this version of XP. Remember
Win2k and WinXP needs software that was designed to work on these platforms -
older software may cause instability.
