    That, and if you build a year+ out of date. If you buy new low-to-mid end, the builds are usually wrong and you have to upgrade ram or sum such to get to where you need to go anyway, but upgrading (so you keep XP, your old case, monitor, drives) with an eye towards the value point you can get a better system than the low-to-mid stuff on the shelf for the money.

    There are a lot of great retail PC deals out there, and it is tough to out do them, but if you're willing to shop around and research, it can be done.

    if you dont want to build your pc then buy the best possible dell XPS. gaming PCs are way cheaper and better than gaming laptops. in order to get a good gaming pc you must buy parts that wont come in handy until 2-5 years down the road.

    Everything in this signature except for this text was made by Wiired, he is my creator and almighty.

    if you buy a pc built by some big company you are paying for labor as well as parts so building it yourself would be cheaper

    They buy there hardware in bulk, thus there hardware costs are infact less than what your paying for.

    Then they add the cost of branding, marketing, corporate taxes, regulatory schemes, labor, new OS (if you're upgrading, you can keep your old one), and you alone pay the cost of wasting your old parts--if you can put some of them to good use, it's a penny earned. There's also the benefit of getting exactly what you want instead of getting someone else's idea of a good build.

    You can't beat every build out there in price, but there are still good values to be had from building your own.

    exactly, case closed.
    no need to get an young person (going by target audience of the forum) into trouble by buying parts that won't go together and wasiting there money and time. it's pointless.
