If you build your pc you will understand how too pull it apart and put it back together too clean it, also, youl easily be able too reformat your HDD and re-install windows because you will have installed windows before.

90% of OEM pc users probably just expect the computer too keep on going, and run a virus scan every 6 months. Im constantly defragging my hdd, reinstalling the OS and updating everything lol. You will be laughing at an OEM pc if you build a gaming pc.

Then again - being able too tamper with your equipment leads you into tampering with it and sometimes mucking it up. The other day my pc wouldnt turn on for an hour because I didnt realise i had accidently knocked a ram module half out. (I must have done it when I was pulling the 24 pin out so my GF didnt touch my computer while I was at work, it had a bunch of new parts in it and It wasnt completely stable yet)

Also as reefa said - be cautious. My Mid end gaming pc for casual gaming that cost me $1600nz a few months ago, has now cost me about $3500 and I havnt even got my water cooling loop yet. Being on this site makes you want too spend all your money on computer parts lol.

Also its longer, free, and better.

I knew building my own laptop was easy. But what I didn't know was all the support that still came with all the parts. And I guess diagnosing any problems isn't as hard as I thought. I can still do some research if I have any problems. Building my own laptop could actually be a better idea than I thought!

Thank you for this thread. You make me want to build my own.

It will be so easy to build a system in a Clevo case. I love my Sager branded Clevo. I wish I had looked more into buying barebones, but I cam't complain about the standard 3 year warranty from Xoticpc.com

Thanks. That was very informative. I still need to get a laptop though, because I will be bringing it to school occasionally and also out of town.
