i know compaq sucks my grandma had one and when the hard drive died 2 weeks after buying it they pretty much said tough luck go buy a new one. my uncle on the other hand has had about 15 gateway systems (he works IT for office building) and not one has ever had any problems he personally owns the one im going to get and it works fine for over a year so its a good quality one.

when I first put it together I didn't know what too expect as I never built one and it powered right up and I installed
windows and it's been great ever since, my only upgrade is my current case. since this one I have built 6 more
for friends and family with no issue for them either. I will never buy another pre-bulit system as I think it's fun to
build these, my only problem was is researching parts for my first build, it gave me a headache.
i haven't had much luck in building computer it seems like something always goes wrong down the road this time im convinced its either a PSU, MoBo, or CPU problem and i Don't have the time to build or troublshoot to find out for sure. so a pre-built system with a few upgrades would be perfect.
I've read this, and unfortunately I disagree with this. I see alot of problems with pre-built systems, and as long as everything is done properly when first set up, there should be no issues for years to come. You get longer warranties
for buying individual parts, higher quality parts
, and it still costs less
. In fact, I looked at your last threads you've made in the past week and a half, and it seems like you didn't quite figure the issue out, you didn't get replies in your threads until you were finished and found the issue. Now, if you want I can go ahead and help you fix your current system. Or we can build a new one, but I wouldn't rule out AMD all of a sudden. Or, you can buy your new gateway and void the warranty and get a lower-quality motherboard (seriously, pre-built systems have AWFUL motherboards, I see caps pop all the time at my work. Want pictures?).
Your choice. PM me if you want.
