build my own or buy prebuilt? - Page 3

post #21 of 23
If you live in southern Ontario, Canada Computers is good, they have a pretty good selection, and they have many locations so you could just stop in on your way to or from work or school and pick up what you need, no shipping cost. PC Village is another good one and I think they have a couple locations around Toronto as well. Tiger direct is pretty good too.

Thx guys, I live in Toronto and I didn't think there was anything nearby. Keep in mind I was going to buy from nxix.com which is equivalent to newegg. The prices are pretty good and they charge $50 to build. Since I was going to buy most of the parts there anyway I thought why not have them build it and avoid potential headaches.
fyi here are the parts I have chosen, all from ncix. You tell me if this is significantly overprices.

cost $1,088
