I agree to start talking all technical and then explain to them how a 400 piece of crap can actually be a 400 pretty good computer when you build your own...also make sure you tell them each part comes with usually a lifetime or 3 year warranty to show its better than the short 1 year they give you with a new computer (any longer and you pay like 150 bucks more)

lol actually dell uses FSP in their builds a lot of times...even if it's not the best it's still better than a cheapo logysis or dynapower.
