Dells are garbage. I repair and build computers and most of the ones I get for repair are Dell's, Gateways and E-Machines. Ever called their tech support? My 7 year old son knows more than them.

Building a 'puter is pretty straightforward and will always be the way I purchase one!

Get the parts YOU want and put it together!

The hardest part about building a computer in these days of plug n play, is the time it takes to load up the operating system and working out any compatibilty issues that may arise.

Which is usually only with non intel stuff. AMD suppliers are getting real good though at keeping up to date with drivers etc... And they make a damn good chip!

I looked at the FRY's ad today...

I could build a 1.7gig AMD AThlon with 512 meg ram 32 meg video, 30 gig hd for about 450.00 W/O Monitor...

That's 200mghz front side bus and pc2100 ram

Exactly right sheaneha, not to mention getting their free isp/spyware crap off your brand new box. I would rather have a stick in the eye.

LOL!
