What's even more hardcore than ASSEMBLING a computer is making the physical components yourself, by cutting pieces of metal and silicone.

I love how we're still showing how good a computer is by telling how well it can run Crysis.

I can't imaging me anyone ever suggesting they build their own if they just want to do light browsing and Word Documents.

i built my last computer, and it was just a simple budget machine that i used for school work and internet browsing, and some photo editing, it worked great for a couple of years then died, the computer i have no was purchased 3 years ago, still works great.

I have the security of warranties, Dell customer service (which I most certainly don't need), and the such. But if I knew how to build a computer when I got this one, I would have befriended Newegg for sure.

On a related note, my new Alienware Aurora has been delayed from delivery a third time, even though I ordered it in december and was originally supposed to be here the 15th.

I used Dell's customy thing, so its mildly custom. I don't really care.


For my next trick, I will need a condom and a volunteer.

Get your money back as you've clearly been ripped-off
