About WePC

Our mission is to make PC building easy, fun, and accessible to everyone.

WHO WE ARE & WHAT WE DO

WePC is the place to go when you’re looking to build or upgrade your PC and need expert, unbiased advice. Our talented team of PC builders and content writers work hard to make sure every build, review, and how-to piece we publish is tailored for you.

From reviewing individual components to sharing the latest gaming and tech news to helping you build your first or fiftieth build – WePC is about empowering you as a consumer. Owned by By Gamers For Gamers, we’re part of a publishing group that is working hard to give consumers the power to enjoy their gaming in their own way.

WHY TRUST WEPC?

We never recommend a product that we wouldn’t use ourselves and all of our builds have been chosen for their quality and power. As much as possible, we like to get hands-on with products and test them out ourselves before sharing them with you. This means we’ll be able to let you know if something doesn’t live up to expectations.

The whole WePC team is made up of gamers and tech-enthusiasts, so we know what we’re talking about. We know how frustrating it is when your PC can’t run your favorite game, and we’re always the first in line for new product releases.

HOW WE DO IT

When you set out to build a PC, you have a lot of options. Whatever your skill level or budget, WePC is here to make sure you can create the PC you really want. For every component, there are hundreds of options, many of them with a long line of user reviews that make it difficult to know which one to choose.

That’s where we come in.

We test the products in-house and collate all the data we can find to provide personalized and trustworthy recommendations.

Some of the products we recommend have been sent to us, and some have been bought out of our own money – but all are evaluated equally. We don’t shy away from saying something isn’t good enough, and we never let brands dictate what we should say. That’s why you know you can trust our reviews.

And, because we’re all real gamers and real PC builders, we know what we’re talking about and what really matters to you.

INDEPENDENT TESTING

We’re all gamers, but we don’t all play the same games. We have fans of AAA FPS games like PUBG and CS: GO, gamers who’ve clocked up some serious hours questing in Azeroth in World of Warcraft, and those who always manage to find the coolest new Indy game releases on the market.

Because of this, when we test, we test for all gamers.

And we don’t expect you to just take our word for it either. We search the internet for customer reviews and ask for your feedback on everything we publish. We make sure that your voice gets heard through our Facebook and Twitter pages, as well as in our own dedicated Community site.

WHERE WE TEST

The WePC offices are a hub of activity every day of the week. You’ll usually find someone building a PC in one corner, another tester playing through PUBG to test a new graphics card across the way, and someone unboxing our latest deliveries in our studio.

We’ve designed our headquarters to make sure we can push the components we get to the limits and try out everything from gaming chairs to consoles to VR games as well.

PRODUCT ACQUISITION

The products we review are a mixture of gifted items and independently sourced ones. However we acquire these products, our reviewing process does not change. We strive to remain entirely objective throughout the process and won’t shy away from saying a product needs improvement, even if it was gifted to us.

OUR PROMISE

We strive to provide our readers with the best advice on the internet. We work hard to provide truthful, consumer-focused, and trustworthy content that helps guide you to the best purchase decisions.

We earn money when a reader clicks through to a product page and makes a purchase – but it doesn’t matter which one. This is why we want to be sure that we only direct you to the best of the best. If our readers don’t trust us, we make nothing. So we do all we can to build up and foster that trust with you.

Contributing Writer

Monica's love for gaming started when she first saw her mom playing Super Mario on the SNES. Her interest in gaming expanded towards PC building with a dash of programming. Over the years, she has played countless PC and console games, ranging from Dark Souls to Stardew Valley. These days, if she's not currently raid-leading in World of Warcraft or ogling a new GPU, she's most probably pursuing her second lifelong passion — writing.
