Customer Review

“Building your first gaming rig can be just as magical as getting your first car, and stressful if you don’t know what you are doing. That’s why I recommend Top Flight Computers.

I spoke to Chris about a custom-built computer and he replied to me within a day, and had the ball rolling after that. I provided a list of parts for him to approve and his feedback was highly informational! We went over each part together and he answered every question I had about an item in full.

The Top Flight PC guys really took the time to understand the purpose of my build so they knew what I was looking for. Most PC places will try to sell you the newest parts hoping to make more money off the build, but Chris was nothing but honest with me. I explained to him my gaming needs, and he was able to tell me exactly what I needed without having to go out of my budget.

When it came down to the actual build time, I was emailed ahead of time to let me know the build would be going live on Facebook! That is a phenomenal feature that most places don’t do for you. Even though I wasn’t in the room, it felt like I was. I would ask multiple questions during the build and they would be answered right away.

I can honestly say I have no negative feedback as overall this was a 10/10 for me. I highly recommend Top Flight Computers to any PC enthusiast. These guys love what they do and treat it as an art.

Go to the gallery and check it out for yourself!”

Customer Review

“Chris did a great job fixing my sick machine. He isolated the problem and worked on it expediently. He even suggested some cooling enhancements that would help prevent a possible recurring problem.

He even upgraded my graphics card on request and informed me of some issues with the card I suggested, so I deferred to his judgement.

Chris has good problem solving skills and I will definitely be using him again.”

“Chris from Top Flight Computers was extremely helpful in getting what I wanted. He is knowledgeable on the work he’s doing and he is not the type of guy to lie and tell you that you need to upgrade things that don’t need upgrading.

You can expect professional and quality work. If you’re in the Raleigh area, I recommend Top Flight Computers.

I personally will be coming back for all my PC needs.”

Customer Review

“I commissioned Top Flight to build The Racers' Edge for a very specific purpose - to get the highest performance and quality iRacing simulation experience, which means getting the most out of my 49" widescreen 4k 144Hz gaming monitor.

WOW…what a system! It's a premium price, but in this case you very much get what you pay for.

There is a price premium for custom computer systems that is almost never worth it, especially since I am perfectly capable of assembling my own rig. Top Flight is more than worth the premium, because Top Flight Computers doesn't just cobble together a bunch of parts bought on the cheap.

Chris' rigs are purpose built, ENGINEERED hardware solutions, optimized for very specific requirements.

The Racers' Edge is a perfect machine - lightning fast, reliable, and whisper quiet (despite NINE fans). The price premium for an engineered system vs. an assembled system is only worth it if the execution and the customer experience are flawless, and Top Flight is all that and more.

Chris has built an incredible company in Top Flight Computers. It's an immense challenge to build a successful computer hardware company, yet Chris has thrived despite this environment. He's thrived because he understands how to run a business as well as he understands computer hardware.

Well done Chris - you've earned my business for life!”

Customer Review

“Chris is a very knowledgeable guy, he's the professional that hobbyist computer builders consult with, and who you want to go with for your custom build.

He recommended a build specific to my business' software and needs, and had it built for me in under a month. In my case I needed After Effects render speed, so we went with the fastest single-core CPU on the market.

Even though I'm a hobbyist computer builder myself, I really never would have thought to exchange core count for clock speed. Highly recommended!”

"I called a couple of places for the addition of an AIO on my GTX 1080Ti; was told it could not be done. Chris and his team at Top Flight Computers performed the modification and got the job done. My customer relationship with Chris has now extended to his team building a custom PC for my kids.

Let Chris and his team turn your PC dream into a reality.

Courtesy, professionalism, open communication and customer focus; this is what you will get with working with Top Flight Computers. They have a lifetime customer for all my PC needs!"

Customer Review

"I've known the owner personally and only recently had both the resources and need for a new PC. It was an easy decision to go with Top Flight for getting the gaming and graphic design rig I've wanted for years.

I remember when Chris first started talking about his business idea when we met in college and seeing him over the years make his idea into reality has been inspirational. With his incredible work ethic, attention to detail, frequent communication and superior customer service he provides a great service and product.

Chris knows his stuff, and will find you the best parts at the best price (in my case finding a GPU at the height of their demand for cryptocurrency) for your build, and work with you through the entire process. He understood my desire for not only a top performing PC, but also an aesthetically pleasing one, even incorporating some of my own custom artwork into the final product.

I would recommend him to anyone looking for a custom build. He will really listen and go above and beyond for you!

My PC arrived in Connecticut safe and well packed. Scarlet Wolf looks fantastic on my desk!"
