Thinking of dell, but look at my newegg build - Page 2

post #11 of 47
If you were looking for approval for a pre-built system your on the wrong forums lol! Build yourself a better rig for the same price!

I actually have a dominating $1350 rig built off newegg, but my dad said he would pay half, and it made me think. And it comes with a 30in monitor, thats 10in less than my room tv, and it would be awesome watching movies lol. Im not a Xtreme gamer, im not going to be doing any coding, or any difficult programs, im kind of wanting to settle down with one, if you know what i mean.

If you build your own then each part has its own warranty, if something goes wrong then RMA it

Dont you guys read,he would have a $600 budget if it isnt dell

heres my advice

1.i have had my dell for ages put some as5 on it new ram its lasting ages the support is great im all for custom built its just im a fan of dell two

2. how about you tell your dad you are building your own then have a budget of 1000 and but 200 aside for insurance incase a part fales just like a warrenty with dell something along those lines

This is the worst post you can make on this forum imo. You are about to get 10+ pages of flaming for even thinking about buying a dell

Don't do it, it's terrible value for the money, and their support isn't good. If you build it yourself you still get a warranty on each part you buy, so there really is no more risk in building yourself than getting a dell.

However if you're doing it because you're only paying $600, then I say what the hell, get it since you're only paying half.

getting a dell is not a bad idea if your not only unaware of anything computer related but your also afraid to learn anything to aid yourself in the feild. if you fit this category then a dell is great for you but this is not the place to be asking for approval the essence of this forum is to dell as heaven is the hell. if you want to become a weird nerd who posts 3dmark06 bench scores all day and has a truck come daily to drop off kegs of mountain dew this is a good place to learn, if you just want a reliable computer that can go on internet explorer for myspace and porn go ahead get a dell but dont be asking for approval around these parts. i have a dell and ive been regreting the decision for 5 years im just now getting together enough money to build myself a real nice rig.

For your needs, a $500 computer will do fine.

Well if you're dad will only pay for half if you get the dell, then go for it, you can't build that for $600. Otherwise, try to convince him that building your own would be better
