  • I prefer to build my own computers.
  • Lucky for me, I think there's an answer that's in between those two. You can order a "customized" computer. It's been awhile now, but back when I got my last computer, I literally played online. I compared makes/models. well .. actually .. models with my preferred brand. Then selected the "class" of models that was closest to how I intended to use my computer. Then I went through .. item by item .. and left as is .. or downgraded ... or upgraded. Can't imagine building one, but don't have to accept one "as it comes off the shelf" either. Odds are I'd have trouble upgrading one myself. So customized buying is GREAT. Just like we can do with cars if we want. Pay more or less depending on what we care or don't care about.
  • build it myself only time I buy off the shelf is at a customer request because they prefer it that way so I then shop online till I can find best deal with the most bang for the buck(that is taking list they give and looking though lots of sites)
  • The only computers I've ever owned are/were mixmatched hodgepodge of different parts rescued from being thrown out by others and expanded upgraded when my IT friends have spare parts!! I'd love to buy a computer! If I was I'd buy the parts and stick them together myself that way I'd get what I want and no software which I don't want. did that come out ok? good question btw
  • Build it yourself. You can always add items, change items, upgrade, downgrade, overclock, etc.. Most, if not all name brands have their own "secret stuff" proprietary components. You must replace with their part at 4x the amount of cost.
