Finding PC Components during this lock-down can be a pain as all the shops are open for a short amount of time. And the time these places are open is so limited that there will always be a crowd at your favorite shops making it harder, time-consuming and even dangerous to go outside for your favorite PC components. There’s no doubt this is more than a mild annoyance for gamers but the solution is quite simple, go online.
Shopping online was not much viable in the past with very few online sources available but presently this has changed. Now there are a lot of options for you to choose and order your PC components from.
Here in this article, we will be covering all the available sources you can get PC components from online along with some general things to look out for when shopping online for your PC parts
Beware of Daraz.pk
Daraz is the first place many people go whenever they need to shop online. It has a wide catalogue and an extensive range of items in every category. You may have noticed that there are PC components available on Daraz as well but the problem here is that Daraz also houses fake components. There are graphics cards which are re-branded with the wrong name at cheaper prices than usual, so beware and don’t fall prey to such scams.
Another way to look for PC components is by searching up and visiting local Facebook groups where people deal in PC parts. These groups have people from all over Pakistan and delivery services are also provided on the buyer’s risk.
Additionally, sellers have to maintain their reputation in the group so there are fewer chances of you getting conned. However, few it may be, scams do happen so tread carefully and check everything from the seller’s reputation to past reviews before making an order.
If you are looking for used PC parts, OLX and similar sites are the places to go. These sites allow ordinary people to sell and buy PC components. You can get really cheap components here, way below the market price if you are lucky, but the risk of getting scammed is the highest here. With no third party to monitor the process, there’s no telling if a certain person will act with honesty.
If you are new to buying PC components for your rig, then you should stick to the online shopping sites mentioned above. Facebook groups and sites like OLX can be a tricky place to get the right thing and when you don’t know what to check when buying a certain PC component, you can be tricked quite easily in losing your hard-earned money.
