Also, dont buy a hitachi hard drive if they offer it.


And you may want to reformat as soon as you get it cuz they loaded mine with crap.

No I ment I purposly got corsair value ram ( what I consider to be "bogus" ram ) instead of the planned xms corsair ram that they offer, and instead I got g.skill Hz ram on newegg to save money.

I have one now, you can get a desktop or laptop, both highly customizable (<- is that a word???) and good value too. No problems ever with it, GREAT customer support.

I guess it depends what you're throwing in the comp. Obviously it's not going to be newegg-type prices, but in terms of having your computer built for you, they're probably the best prices ive seen when compared to similar comp's made my other companies.
