Brand Name Components
As with many things, brand name components are often priced at a premium. While they are sometimes constructed better or have other features that the buyer may want, sometimes they aren t worth the heavier price. Unless you re going into some very high end work or gaming on your computer, you don t really need to go all out on name brand parts. This is particularly true with computer accessories. While Apple is the one that everyone picks on for selling their brand name parts and accessories at a premium, every major company does it somewhere. Knowing where you can cut back and use an off label part for the same effect can allow you to save big.
