Re: New comp (need opinions)
You should not go with Dell because of
1. reliability issues
2. proprietary components (have to buy motherboard and such from Dell)
3. no actual operating system disk and just backup
4. overpriced for gaming computers
Dell is alright but you would be much better off with Realm Computers http://realmcomputers.com
