I bought from ibuypower.com and I will say it was such a pain in my rear end... Not only was the service not good but when I got my computer I had a GPU and a NIC that didn't even work... Then when I reformatted about 6 months later my Windows key that they gave me would not work... I'll build my system myself from now on so if something doesn't work it's my own fault...

you can really save like a couple hundred if you build it yourself... and all those premade ones the people that build them buy the parts for super cheap... they make so much profit
