The problem with building your own is warrenty. Most parts are 90 days and almost always you have to send to the manufacture and more than likely get a refurbished one back unless DOA. So sometimes the savings are not all that great and yes I build my own but anything under $1000 I buy off the shelf.


I have gotten Alienware before. Nice PC (owned by Dell now, FYI) and decent price if on sale. Upgradability almost none as most of their desktops are micro mobos.


IBuyPower usually is amazing price-performance and I would argue on sale you may not save any money on building your own. They have a good rep, just be careful that the basic builds are are adequate at best with PSU and GPU. 


Last company never heard of.

I agree with bromance. I have heard of cyberpowerpc but took me a while to learn about ibuypower. I feel like almost under any circumstance I would prefer to build my own. Putting the work into a build as well as expanding ny availability to choose looks, layouts and parts makes it feel more special. I've never personally purchased a system from any of the above companies. If your not concerned about price theb I might say take a look at digital storm. They aren't cheap but often are known for their professionalism in neatness and quality. Edited by War_Adm1ral
