Custom Computer Systems
Our computer systems are designed primarily for businesses who are interested
in acquiring top quality desktop systems. Therefore, McGrath Electronics uses
only the highest quality components in our computer systems. The importance
of reliability is foremost in our assessment of choosing components for our
computer systems. Computer down time will cost a business far more than the
small difference in the cost of using the best components available.
We offer several basic computer configurations that can be customized to
meet your specific needs. Please refer to the sub menu for details of these
systems. In addition, we can custom build just about any computer or server
configuration to suit your specific requirements. We also install and pre-configure
the operating system and any other software you require. We do not install any
useless software that is commonly found on computers purchased from any of the
big manufacturers. If the computer is to be used on a network, we can properly
install it on the network for an additional fee. Please feel free to
contact us with any questions you may have.
Our computer systems are built for maximum reliability using:
- Intel boxed motherboards and boxed processors that have the best manufacturer
warranty in the business. It is our experience that these components frequently
outlast those from the major manufacturers. It is also our experience that
an Intel motherboard and processor combination is very reliable as they
were specifically designed to work together.
- Seagate hard drives that have the lowest failure rate in the industry.
Over the past 20 years we have experienced only 15 Seagate hard drive failures.
In this same period we have encountered over 200 failed drives by other
- Kingston Technology memory that has a limited lifetime manufacturer's
warranty. This means that as long as the memory is still in production,
any failure will be replaced by Kingston. To date we have experienced only
one failure of Kingston memory.
In over 20 years of building computers, we have found this combination to
be the most reliable in terms of stability and longevity. None of our customers
have seen the "Blue Screen of Death" due to a hardware issue since
1998 when we fully switched to this hardware combination.
