I agree with surgeVel completely! Tech is moving extremely fast right now, I kind of got left behind. And now, in trying to catch up, Ive noticed that even though some of the parts offered in Pre-Built customs are great, They use what (some of us)we dont know against us. Everyone knows a great HD when they see one. DVD burners? If its Brand Name, Good Speed, Dual Layer, Light Scribe... Sure!, But Processors....confusion galore! and Graphics Cards are moving so fast right now todays great card is tomorrows Wal-Mart Special. So they show all this stuff in Bold Letters and put in words like FAST! and Lightning and tell you how great it will handle games. Its all a sham. They Highlight stuff they know you would recognize and downgrade everything else, then they wrap it all in a good looking but cheap case, throw some lights on it and tell you its a great deal. Three months later, after youve started comparing what you have against what you need, you'll figure it all out. But by then your $600-$1000+ into a computer that doesnt do what you wanted and you realize in less than 2 years your going to be right back where you started.
