Default Re: buy or build

silly question is silly.

When you buy a pc:

it comes preloaded with shit you don't want.
you can only purchase the models they make, with specific specs.
you pay for a name badge

when you build:

you choose all the parts
you install the OS yourself, and it wont be full of trial crap
you dont pay for their labor time, since you build it yourself
The whole is always worth more than the sum of it's parts when you buy, but you can build the same PC for alot less.

EVGA SLI Micro Z68 // Intel i5-2500k // 8GB Corsair Vengeance 1866MHz // Overclocked 2GB MSI R9 270X // Corsair Carbide SPEC-03 // Kingston Hyper-X 120GB // 2TB WD Green + 500GB WD Black

if you want a top gaming PC you must build the system yourself

If you want a PC for wordprocessing / accesing internet you will be good to buy a pre-built PC
