Got to be Custom... unless there's some kind of Deal on you can't beat building your own.

Actually I think Dell and AMD signed a contract, stating that Dell will also use AMD processors too.

I think for $1500, you can build yourself a hell of a nice computer. I'm looking to spend around that much or less this month. This weekend, I'm going to PC Club to look at some cases to purchase.

It all depends on what you want. If you have plenty of time, and are willing to learn quite a bit about hardware and how everything works together, there you should build a custom AMD system. If you don't know much about computers, and don't feel like putting yourself through the torture of figuring out what works with what and what you need, probably go with the dell.

Almost all of us can help you choose parts, but I have to admit, it will take some time for you to learn and choose proper parts.

$1,500 is a reasonable amount to buy a Dell isn't it? It depends whether there's some offers on. There's double memory here but maybe not in America.
