Hello and welcome, everyone, to this month’s System Builder’s Guide, the first for the new year! In today’s episode, we’re at the budget end of the guide that deals with rigs that most of our readers could actually afford. Times have been tough for the computer market with the overall trend for buying pre-built systems decreasing year-on-year, but thankfully this hasn’t really affected the enthusiast market, and component manufacturers like Gigabyte and ASUS are doing more business this year than they’ve ever done before. For the stronger brands, things are really looking good and there’s an energetic air about the tech industry this year. Unfortunately for emerging markets like South Africa, though, it’s not going so well with week 2 of 2016 halfway over.
