Dell is alright but you would be much better off with Realm Computers http://realmcomputers.com
5. poor customer service

newegg your parts and you'll be surprised on how much you'll save

Here is what you need to order from Newegg. It's going to be better than any pre-built at the same price.

Processor:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115202

Motherboard:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813130221

RAM:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231223

Power Supply:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817379006

Hard Drive:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822136218

GPU:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814133270

It's your choice on a case and operating system. That blows the Dell system out of the water on price and performance.

You can choose any case and OS.
