Personally I would never but any sort of 'brand name' computer. Find someone you can trust to put together a combo that outstrips brand names in every way. Components & performance.

I used to be dead set against a "name brand" system. But they way I look at it now is that a "working" computer is a "good" computer :D

"brand name" PC's just put to much unneccessary software on them.

Chandman, I do not mean to pick on your english because chances are that it is your second language. But your posts are very hard to read. I just want to ask if you would take an extra minute to re-read them after you write them to ensure they make sense. This will help everyone. Once again, I am not trying to be mean or anything, just looking out for you. Thanks bud!

lol the worst brand name computers are compaq and gateway, cuz they have no way of upgrading, gateway even rips out the agp ports of their mobo's...imagine:p, i had a Packard Hell for 2.5 years, worked fine for me but it got a little slow when i put XP on it, i overclocked it (AMD K6-2 450 mhz) to 550 mhz by changing jumpers and everything, but i got really sick of it so i bought a new µATX mobo from Aopen and a Celeron 1.3 (now at 1.48) and it works as a sunshine on a summersday:D

well that's not what i've heard, a friend of mine has a celeron 1.2 ghz, all jumpers are ripped out, the agpport also, bios is blocked and it's not possible to upgrade it, the case has somekind of unknown format, ATX doesn't fit, µATX and babyATX also don't fit,
for the rest of it it's almost impossible to upgrade the bloody thing....

Personally, I don't think you nearly as much for your money buying a name system like Dell as opposed to building your own. I'm building a system for my brother at the moment and it's gonna cost him under $300.00 to get a pretty decent AMD 1800+ system. That excludes things like monitor, keyboard, ect. which i will be taking from his old system. If you hunt, you can find components that are not the latest and greatest but still pretty damn good for dirt cheap. I would NEVER buy a name system unless they were practically giving it away.

I have been building computer for the past year and one half, mostly for friends and family, and like you said Clean Rich: doesn't cost more than $500, (everything) a pretty decent machine where you can play the latest games and may last more than a name brand one, but I sure miss my Packare Bell ( Our First computer we never forget!!! :eek:)) (Hey! that's a good thread isn't????)
