I agree completely, just be sure to do your homework regardless of which route you choose. Going pre-build should require a lot less homework but you want to be sure to not just look at brand, read up on various models as well. Sometimes traditionally good brands will release crappy models for some reason.Depends on what you're going to use it for, if it's just for internet/photos then pre-build if you're going gaming, video editing then build your own
Custom for everything. No matter what. There's no use in spending $50 in an builder and a shiny insigna for a prebuilt...I was wondering if I would pay less for a computer if I build it myself or if I just bought a pre-built computer.
