Default Together or Seperate?

What does everyone here do? Buy all the parts and then build or put it together as you get the parts? I buy all the parts I need it to run then add the extra stuff like Gfx card if the mobo has onboard gfx etc.

i get all the parts, then build.. theres no point in risking damage to the hardware by taking it out of the packaging if it's just going to sit there collecting dust until the other parts arrive.

Same here, besides, the wait from starting assembly to boot would kill me if I had to wait for parts (lets get this sucker humming )
