    Wait, on those two sites I gave you, you can buy and choose components. So, you can choose video cards and Rams. Right?

    ibuypower is pretty good if you want to pick your stuff but don't feel confident about building yourself

    they have decent prices, they are very good about their warranties and they build a solid system. I know quite a few people that have bought from them and they have all been happy. I have also helped people do upgrades and repairs on older machines from them and they are very well put together, not what you'd expect from a prebuilt.

    Building yourself will be cheaper, but its just slander to call something a rip off just because they are charging you for a completely ready to use machine rather than just parts. They have a Warranty, tech support as well as labor and other costs to think of. These are solid machines and at a pretty good price for what you are getting.

    Your right it is a bit 'slander' to call it a ripoff when they do a lot of the work for you (building it) and I forgot how you can choose components yourself. So yeah, I guess ibuypower wouldnt be so bad. I'd go with them over the other site. Im still set on you making your own, its not hard at all, just easy to be misconceived. Just look at SubKamran in his "This proves..." thread.

    I purchased Dell 8300 for $1000.00 last March. I am now about to revive my computer upgrade/replacement project again. And this time, I actually have someone who could help me physically because he is my co-worker/subdornate.

    Thank you all for your replies.
