What it comes down to is this - Do you want to say you built your computer or merely paid for it?

New Rig? Pre-built or Me built?
If you build it , you will understand troubleshooting better, IMO.
Also, if you me - repair pre built, could void warranty.

Building a PC is like legos but easier. If you put something in the wrong slot it won't work, so it's easier because there aren't as many possibilities to put pieces together.

Lots of guides online on how to assemble

Buying the components will give MUCH better warranty and longer and will let you hand pick quality components. Your components generally have 3years to lifetime



Instead of cheap or generic ram/hds you can get quality brands

It also has a better PSU and nicer case(imo).

edit: i do realize now that I posted that, a 750 watt PSU is definitely not needed for this, not sure why I put it in

Thanks. Nice build, I think I might do that if I can find that damn mobo, I know it not out yet.

I would like to go to a GTX 560 ti 2 GB.

Couldn't get exactly what you had there to line up price wise. But, really close. What do y'all think of the CoolMaster V6?
