Well I always looked at it as prebuilt or custom. My definition of stock is exactly how you bought it. So if you add anything to it its not stock such as a new graphics card or processor etc.
I mean if you upgrade the CPU, RAM, GPU and PSU do you still consider it stock? I just kind of think of it like a car or motorcycle, if you buy it and do nothing to it then it's stock. If you add an intake, exhaust, turbo, suspension and such its not stock anymore. Even though you still bought it prebuilt instead of building your own car from scratch.
I mean everyone has different ways of viewing things but IMO stock is exactly how ya buy it. But either way this is doing nothing to help the OP...
