Benjamin Astrino, the founder and owner of Empower Gaming Computers started building gaming computers for friends and family in the Detroit, MI area back in 2007. Word of mouth spread and over the years Ben found that more people are interested in a fully customized option for gaming computers and launched this site in 2019. Ben is a full time Microsoft contractor specifically migrating small and medium size companies from on-prem to Microsoft cloud services. Ben's vision to bring a new white glove service to gaming computers has been successful and he continues to grow his vision of Empowering gamers. Providing the right hardware so that the buyer is not over paying or under buying to have the right experience when gaming is the most important reason for starting this company. Ben recognizes that most buyers come into the market without the right knowledge and will either pay way over what they should for a computer that they will not ever use or they buy a computer that is labeled "gaming computer" and is under powered and will not perform the way that the buyer is expecting. Both leading to bad experiences, Ben's vision is to bridge the gap to make sure that the buyer and the computer are a perfect match empowering the gamer in you to game the way you want to game.
