A solid Intel desktop computer, with lots of configuration options and room to upgrade.
Puget Systems Professional Advice
The Spirit is a great PC for an enthusiast just starting out. We built it to be expandable and upgradable. You can get a Spirit PC from us, let us make sure it is solid, then tinker with it and upgrade it on your own. This is a great choice for students -- have your parents purchase a Spirit PC, and save up your cash for a nice video card addition. It makes for a great gaming PC.
Don't be fooled into thinking of the Spirit as an entry level PC similar to those you'll find marked down at the office supply store. The Spirit may be our entry level desktop, but the build quality and choice of components elevate to an entirely different league compared to what our competitors consider entry level. If you're in the market for a high quality, reliable do-it-all PC that won't break the bank, this is the place to start.
The Spirit is really the starting point of the Puget Systems experience. All of our other systems address specific niches, but the Spirit is great for a broad number of computing applications.

"This is a very well organize company with outstanding customer service support . I was very impressed with the way you are kept inform of the progress and can follow your build. Customer info that is provided by the company is above and beyond what I have seen else where. Shipping packaging for my computer shows how far the company goes to satisfy the customers and protect their investment. I am extremely happy with my computer and know I received a very high end quality machine."

"I had a very positive experience with Puget Systems. It was really neat logging into my account every day and following the building process for my system.I also enjoyed seeing photographs of the completed build before it was shipped to me. I love my new computer, it runs even better then I was expecting and the build quality is top notch. Thank you Puget Systems!"

"I've bought a few custom PC's before, and Puget went above and beyond all expectations and experiences I've had with other companies. They helped me find exactly the right computer parts that were specifically tailored to what I wanted to get out of my PC within my price range. They also explained which parts were better for which price and why in great detail when asked. They had very frequent step by step updates and comments as my system was being built, and the thoroughness they put into every step was easy to see. My PC arrived well packed in perfect condition, and was of exceptional quality. I couldn't be happier with how Puget handled my order."

"Puget Systems is the best of all the companies I have ever dealt with. I have experienced a great attitude, quality, attention to detail and excellence when I purchased my desktop. They have made me feel like I am part of the process.
Starting with their recommended system for Photoshop, two phone discussions led to my upgrading and subtracting items from their baseline system. The phone representatives were very straightforward, knowledgeable and helpful. They did not advise me to spend money for the sake of spending money; the goal was value for each item and, indeed, they pointed out one key area where a very modest change would significantly increase productivity. Thankfully they did not come across as salesmen.
As the unit was assembled, performance tested, examined in quality control (including a heat IR photo and a temperature graph, performance testing and 44 BIOS setting photos) and prepared for Fedex ground shipping I received informative updates. I placed my order late on a Monday and it was delivered to my home (1500 miles driving distance) Saturday of the following week. The boxing was impressive and the unboxing instructions were very thorough. A 3 ring notebook with performance testing results, original CD’s and recovery USB drive was included along with various cables and instructions for their use. And they also included extra hardware for potential future upgrades.
Nice complementary polo shirt. And I appreciated their complementary installation of my software preferences.
The desktop is very quiet (air cooled). A nice touch was a 3 week checkup email asking for comments and if I needed any assistance. The performance is superb and Photoshop works so smoothly. After using the computer for 3 weeks I’m very pleased with it and brag about it and Puget Systems to my friends."

"I tend to look for companies that do business the right way. Until finding Puget Systems, I hadn't found any in the PC business. Puget's builds priced favorably to the rest of the market, but the real value isn't just the well-designed systems, its the level of service. I gave Jeff a detailed list of needs and he guided me toward the right components and build. From then on, I was informed at every step of the process: who was working on my PC and what they were doing. The give tons of info on the parts they use and why, a wealth of info on my system (benchmarks, thermal imaging, etc.), and the final delivered product is flawless (it was so well packed, the FedEx guy who delivered it was impressed!) They provide an old-school binder manual, recovery disks and drive, and a flawlessly built PC -- tidy cable management, lots of efficient and quiet cooling, and great parts. The PC is fast, quiet (often inaudible), no bloatware, everything was installed and ready to go (including all available updates). It boots fast, it runs better than any previous PC I've owned, and I have no doubt it will be far more reliable also. Puget Systems does it right. I've paid premium prices before, but this is the first time I got equal value! My Puget PC doesn't look flashy, but it's a beast of a system, backed up by people who really seem to care about building a machine that does what I need. I've a hard time imagining buying a PC from anyone else ever again."

This is the first computer purchased from Puget (Aug 2018). The experience was enjoyable. Jeff answered my questions when were we determining what I needed for my system. Puget kept me informed every step of the way and the computer arrived trouble free sooner than promised. I am very satisfied with the computer and will recommend to my friends that they contact Puget next time they need a computer. To date I have not had a reason to call for any problems or questions. This company is first class."

"Trying to find a legitimate workstation that will handle Octane was a nightmare. After years on Mac, I looked at the iMac Pro and winced at the specs and the ridiculous price. No NVIDIA, over $12K for an adequate machine? After days looking, I found Puget Systems.
I am so glad I did. After making the call, Oscar was GREAT. I highly recommend Puget Systems and will never shop anywhere else. From the first call, I was hooked. The integrity, value and quality this company offers is exemplary.
Here’s a few bullet points on what makes Puget Systems easily the best place to go for custom workstations:
• They were nice. No talking over your head, no tech-nerd attitude. Just helpful and down to earth.
• They listen. They helped me transition from Mac to PC with little to no trouble and were very helpful with follow-up questions.
• They diagnose what you’ll need without trying to up-sell
• They have the best technology in stock, usually
• The wait time was minimal, two weeks from phone call to up and running in my case
• There’s a step-by-step progress report/checklist as your system is being made complete with what’s being done and who is doing it
• Most important, the system was EASY to set up
• AND it’s blazing fast
• AND the price was by far the best out there. In fact, they saved me money by helping me direct my budget toward the components that were most helpful for the applications I was using.
• They followed up to ensure everything is working properly
• Finally, the beards at PS are as impressive as the render times on my workstation
TL;DR Puget Systems should give other companies lessons in customer service, value and quality. I’m a fan and will be ordering from them again soon."

"There are no words to express the level of comfort and satisfaction having being a customer of Puget systems. The timely process from the confirmation of the order to the building of the machine and being informed at every stage. Excellent and knowledgeable support staff who are able to tailor the system specs to my specific need. The after sales support, even after two years of purchase they want to make sure every thing is ok with you. My system runs oil-smooth and is very silent for a big machine.Thank you Puget, you have a customer for life!"

"I've now bought two computers from Puget Systems and have no intention of going anywhere else. I used to build my own computers to meet my needs but have found the staff here to be so knowledgeable about each piece of equipment and what I actually need, that I trust them more than myself.
On my last purchase they talked me out of buying a more powerful PC. They assessed my needs and were able to help me identify what equipment would give me the best system to meet my particular needs, even though it meant I didn't spend as much with them. They also build these things really well. I don't think I've had a single hardware issue with the computers I've purchased from them. They also prepare them for me so that they are almost completely silent. I love it!
Even a couple of years after I put one of their computers into service they are ready to help and troubleshoot if problems arise.This is how I wish all companies were run. They have won my respect and have made me a very happy customer. Thank you Puget Systems!"

"Puget Systems has been an incredible experience. The best way to describe how I felt when I purchased my computer, was as if a company was formed just to build a personal computer for me. The way Puget Systems reach out to their customers on a personal level is outstanding. The step-by-step build process and updates left me not only excited, but kept me in the loop to ask any questions. I have recommended this place to friends and family and will continue to do so."
