ok heres the full laydown of this thread... you have 2 choices
buy from ibuypower (they are reliable, good customer service, etc.)
OR you spend a bit of time, and pick out your parts as YOU want, and not just the selection ibuypower has, learn a thing or two about computers, and have a ton of fun.... also save yourself a bit of cash as well
now, i went the second route when deciding i wanted a gaming computer.... and its been really fun just shopping around and learning stuff... you will probably have this same experience
ask your dad, you guys can do it as a summer project.... don't be afraid! i asked my dad about it, and hes all into it as much as i am! it will be tons of fun somekid.... i know it =]
plus, these great guys here will help you with ANYTHING you need...trust me!
