The only time I'd BUY a computer is a laptop, and only because I don't know how to build one of those. Even still, I would wipe the hard drive clean and start over without the OEM junk.

Build one, without a shadow of a doubt. Why? well there are so many reasons (most have already been mentioned) where's the fun in paying for something you can't have exactly the way you want? (Without paying a small fortune to companies like Dell!)

Oh and all the pre-loaded junk they force upon you which 9 times out of 10 gets re-installed when you use the recovery disc that came with your new PC. That's definitely one of my pet peeves! :realmad:

I'm sure other people will agree with me when I say there's nothing better than after saving up your money to have big cardboard boxes being delivered to your door! :D

The building part has to be the best part of course, you always remember how much quicker your computer boots into Windows, or how much quicker your favourite game runs -- nothing better IMO.

Only time I would purchase 'off the shelf' would be a laptop, other than that custom-built all the way! :thumbup

I wonder if there's anyone on this site who would put buy...

Always build, if not to get the exact components you want, then just for the satisfaction of the first time it turns on. :thumbup

Well seeing as I like Older OS's (Win98se mostly) the only thing i could do is build it myself..

I suppose i could find one on Ebay or somewhere else in working condition.....

I think building one would make one feel MUCH BETTER about themselves when its all completed and works well :)

Any time it comes to me wanting a new PC, I'll look and see what I can get. So maybe there is a computer I can buy that has exactly what I want, but usually this isn't the case. So I have to build it instead.

Always build. That way you don't compromise, you get a computer to your exact specifications - sweet. :thumbup
