This is so true. I had a buddy who built a system for a friend, and he would always complain about how slow it was. Come to find out, he was constantly surfing "adult" sites with no virus software and had "no time" to run even a free ad-aware sweep.
He had like 600 spyware hits and 6 major trojans!!
BTW - if you do build a system for friends, be sure to tell them the second they install AOL you no longer will answer their calls
Seriously, if this is for people who just want a box on their desk to point and click the internet, why bother building them a system? It would be like putting a supercharger on your grandma's 1993 Buick LeSabre.......what's the point?
Have them buy a Dell unless they want some real performance out of the thing. That's my opinion.
