ShoddyTech along with some of his favorite builds!
Hi! Welcome back to our Featured Seller series where we interview our Jawa Verified Sellers to highlight their business and story. ShoddyTech Support has been one of the most active members on Jawa and especially in the discord. You can find both him and his listings on Jawa and in the Jawa Discord.
Tell us who you are and how you would describe yourself?
Blunt, weird, hyper…..just ask the wife.
What do you do in the world of PC building or PC parts in general?
Acquire, build and sell. Lately I have been finding my self wanting to do more ‘experimental things’ for example building a PC case from scratch.
When did you start selling on Jawa and how did you find out about us?
First time stumbling across Jawa.gg was on Facebook. Joined the Discord and STALKED. I will admit I was extremely skeptical at first and when creating my account to be a seller, I emailed Jawa. CEO actually responded to the email. So I pushed through. Jawa at the time was still in Beta, and I have been around ever since.
Is this a part time gig, full time job, or hobby for you?
A mix of all of the above. 100% a hobby I purely love building PCs. If I could I would give them away. Part time is time allocated for building . It becomes a full time with tech support and acquiring parts. I tend to bargain hunt to provide very competitive prices.
How would you describe your style when it comes to your builds?
I try to be a perfectionist. I build every PC with the intention/ idea of if it was my own. I try to do different cases and builds with all the PCs I sell.
Are you a Linus Tech Tips or Steve from GN kinda guy?
I like to think closer to LTT kinda person. Especially with some of the projects I am doing now. For example Pfsense router/firewall, and building a PC case from scratch.
What’s your most memorable PC building experience?
The first PC I built for myself.
CPU: AMD RYZEN 2600x
GPU: XFX 580 8gb
RAM: 16GB 3200
What is your favorite build for sale on Jawa right now (yours or another seller’s)?
Unfortunately it’s not my own but I gotta give props to whom it’s deserved.
Who are some people who made a difference to you in this community (Jawa or PC gaming in general)?
Jawa as a whole. Granted more credit go to the founding members, but the community as a whole is making a difference in PC Gaming and Hardware.
