Q&A with Pedro19, Founder of the PC Master Race Community

The “Glorious PC Gaming Master Race” term originated as an insult in this Zero Punctuation review of the Witcher.

Here at Logical Increments, we love advocating on behalf of the PC. But as devoted to the PC as we are, our enthusiasm is continually overshadowed by that of the PC Master Race (PCMR). With more than 800,000 members and growing, this Reddit community is one of the leading hubs of PC-related activity on the internet, and the PCMR has since spread its influence to Steam, TwitchTwitter, Instagram, Facebook, and Discord. You can see everything they’re up to at pcmasterrace.org.

We recently had the opportunity to interview Pedro19, the founder of the PC Master Race community. Read our discussion below:

That’s when I thew up my hands and told him that, as his friend, I could not support him buying a “gaming computer” (or any other PC) from a retailer. He asked me what the big deal was. I told him: the big deal is, if you use your computer for more than just light Internet browsing, if you want to get the most for your money, and especially if you plan to use it for gaming, you really, really should build your own.

He asked me for one good reason why building was so much better than buying. I gave him five, and now I’m giving you a dozen. Here are 12 reasons why you should build your own PC instead of buying it pre-built:
