Default New Custom PC Build or Pre-Built PC

New Custom PC Build or Pre-Built PC

I am wanting to get a new desktop computer. I was thinking of building another PC, but I was also thinking of getting a pre-built PC. I already have a few pieces for the build, picked out. And I already have a pre-built in mind. I want a pre-built because the whole PC will have warranty and not like the custom one, which each component will have its own warranty. And the pre built PC has some stuff I am looking for, in which the custom one won't. And I want a custom one, because most of the parts are better than the built one, but the custom is a little bit more money.

Here is the pre built one:

Newegg.com - HP Pavilion P6610F (BM417AA#ABA) Athlon II X4 635(2.9GHz) 4GB DDR3 750GB HDD Capacity ATI Radeon HD 4200 Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit


Some of the custom components:

Newegg.com - AMD Phenom II X6 1075T Thuban 3.0GHz 6 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 125W Six-Core Desktop Processor HDT75TFBGRBOX

Newegg.com - ASUS M4A88T-V EVO/USB3 AM3 AMD 880G HDMI USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

What is your budget? What will you be doing with your computer?

I am looking to spend about $600, maybe a little more. I will be using it for Photoshop, Dreamweaver, etc. And maybe a little gaming.
