I hate Dell. I mean, who the hell uses the BTX form factor? They only do that so you have to go to Dell and ONLY Dell for parts, as not very many companies use BTX.

Dell FTL.

I had a dell and it was horrible. I replaced everything except the motherboard and CPU because it was impossible to replace a BTX motherboard. It was quiet, but I'd sacrifice that for quality any day. I'll never buy another dell. They make crappy computers, and then back them with mediocre tech support that's outsourced and can hardly read note cards.

the dust did it in. too hot.

and dell does suck. they cut out a $10 part to selfishly make more money, while screwing over so many more computers. the last dell we had (we bought it when I was like 8, so its not like I could have build a comp) died a year or two ago because the mouse and keyboard ports just stopped working.

The older dells are pretty nice, but the new stuff just blows.
