Default EBay Computers

Do you guys think it is ok to buy custom computers on EBay? I think they are legit, and my friends usually buy them there, but I was just wondering cause someone said it would be better to buy them somewhere else with a warranty and what not, but I think the customs are more efficient.

EBay is where I was planning on buying my Custom Desktop and Monitor. Thanks for any help guys.

I would rather get a cyberpower, then go with ebay. Ebay is a cool place and all, but to many scammers. Once they get the money, they could care less about you and the computer. Just spend the extra 100 or so, and get a computer from a site, or the best bet, build it yourself..

Get your stuff from a real retailer, or technology store. Buying from Ebay does pose some risks, but if you feel saving a bit, go for it. Check the seller's ratings, and comments from other buyers to see if they got what they payed for.
