Custom PC Builds, Repairs, and Upgrades!


We are slowing getting in stock of Nvidia RTX 3000 series cards for upgrades and new builds!  We have been lucky enough to snag 3090, 3080, 3070 and 3060tis, but supply is short.  We also have Radeon 6800, 6800XT and 6900XT.  We also have a limited stock of Ryzen 5000 CPUs!   We just finished several RTX 3080 upgrade and we have more on the way.   If you are interested in upgrading your PC, or doing a new build let us know!  You can see our current stock at our Square online store.  We can build a full system for you, or we can upgrade yours.  Have hardware already?  We can build your system for you?  Need a BIOS upgrade?  We can do that.  Or you can purchase parts from us online, and pick up in store.  IF you are in the Austin Texas area we are likely the only place with anything in stock.  

Got a PS4 that is overheating? It is record heat today. We fix that quick. This PS4 Pro had bad and improperly spread thermal compound. We can fix most overheating issues same day! #atxgamers #austingamers #esportsaustin #playstation4 #playstationrepair #ps4 #ps4pro

5 Things Helping Us Keep Coronavirus Free

In normal times we are always cleaning. When we opened almost 14 years ago SARS wasn't that distant of a memory so we were serious from the start.  With E3 now canceling on the heals of SXSW we are happy to have taken action early.  We have several cleaning methods which already included bleach.  In mid February we ordered a device that produces a biocide that has proven effective on coronaviruses as an extra precaution for daily sanitation through the air.  This was in addition to the hand sanitizer we already have on the front counter which we started doing last year before flu season.  Well hand sanitizer has run out so we have made our own from aloe vera gel and rubbing alcohol.  We now clean gaming stations including the keyboards, mice, controllers, and headsets as customers finish up playing. 


The 4th thing that is helpful is we have 4 separate gaming rooms which splits up people into smaller groups.  Want to game only with your group of friends.  We can do that.  No only are the rooms separated, but each room has a dedicated ductless AC unit.  That means no ducts for air to flow through from room to room, or to spread dust, mold or anything else.  We hope that soon we can forget about one of the worst flu seasons in a decade soon, and that coronavirus does not hit the Austin area.  In the meantime we will remain diligent in our approach to cleaning as warmer weather approaches.  

Also as a reminder you are welcome to bring your own controllers, headsets, mice, and keyboards for play!  We have always supported that, and it is a good way to have some extra protection. 

Let's face it. The hard drives Sony and Microsoft put in the PS4 and Xbox One are bad. They are so slow and with games getting larger and larger 500GB no longer holds enough games.  We can professionally install a superfast SSD or SSHD for a lot more speed. Load times and install times will all get better. We can even transfer your data if you old drive still works.  If you console is loading extra slow your hard drive may already be starting to fail, and now is a good time for an upgrade before you lose all of your data.  Contact us for more details if you have any questions about your Xbox One or Playstation 4! 


We have been repairing Nintendo Switch consoles since shortly after they came out. While fun devices they are prone to many issues.   One of the most common issues is not charging or powering up.  The charge port can be damaged as well as the internal charging circuitry.  Several chips handle charging as the main battery and both joycon batteries all need charging.  This can happen from rough handling when inserting the charge cable or putting it in the dock.  It can also be caused by using after market chargers not from Nintendo that can allow for too much power to flow through and burn out the charging chips. 


Other issues can include cracked screen and bad touchscreens.  Sitting on them or dropping them are common causes.  Sometimes the entire case can become bent.  We also can address issues with the games not reading, and memory cards not recognizing.  


 Switches can also overheat if they have the fan go out or get too dirty internally.  We have also seen speakers fail, the audio jacks go out, and sometimes they can no longer sync with joycons. Even if your Switch has been doused in water we can also have a good chance of repairing it especially if you get it to us quickly.  If battery life is a problem we are also able to replace the internal battery to extend play back to normal. 


We also are able to repair the pesky joycons.  They can have the sticks drift and any of the buttons fail.  Also they can stop connecting to the Switch and their batteries can start to wear out. Please contact us and check out our pricing for repairs.  We are located in Central Austin of Guadalupe Street and are the only full service game console repair shop in Austin!

Ryzen 3000 CPU Upgrades Coming


So last month at E3 we got our first look at the Ryzen 3000 series as well as AMD's new 5700 series GPUs.  We  have been testing the Ryzen 3600 all of the past week, and we love it.  We will soon begin to upgrade all Uber PCs to 3000 series CPUs.  In PUBG alone we are seeing 20 to 30 frames per second increases for a CPU that will be a drop in upgrade once we update our BIOS!
