Yeah, thats true. I dont believe there is any good tech support. Thats why you learn about the products you have. Dell does have some good computers for cheap though.

If you're not gaming, I would recommend a local PC shop.

This thread is starting to scare me...

I ALSO recommend having a local PC shop build you a good PC.

If you use a local, have them give you a list of what they are going to put in it, and opst it here.

I've seen several people royally screwed by local shops who used crappy, out of date parts while promising an uber machine.

Antec 300 Illusion / Antec EarthWatts EA650 650W / EVGA GTX 760 2GB
AMD FX 8320 x8 Black Edition / Gelid Tranquillo / MSI 970A-G43
Sandisk Ultra Plus 128GB / Samsung 840 120GB / WD Black 750GB / WD Green 1TB / WD Red 3TB
G.SKILL Ripjaws 2x2GB DDR3 1600 - Crucial Ballistix Tracer 2x2GB DDR3 1600
Win7 Ult 64-bit - Func MS3 Mouse - CM Storm QuickFire Rapid Mech Keyboard
