    On that note, I build my own power supply and CRT monitors. With vaccuum tubes, legos, potato batteries, and tape.

    @cooler, sd,terasiel
    Barebones are half-built computers so it's much easier to build one there rather than to start one from scratch. Usually all they need to get started is a hard drive, a monitor or a cpu.
    Its posts like this that make me doubt why im ever sad and regretful when i type the words "SHUT THE FUCK UP" in bold colorful letters in huge fonts.


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    Becuase people find it easier just to buy a pre-built one. Like if I had the money I would buy all the parts and make my own computer but since my parents have more money than I do they've been deciding what kind of machines I use.

    And I can't wait till Jyuu responds. He doesn't ususally call people stupid without a good reason.

    building a computer really isnt that hard... one of my jobs is completely dissasembling them, fixing them, and putting them back together... its not as bad as you think. really.

    Ah. Shouldn't you make that out of bánh phở? Well, since I am proud of my scotch-irish-german heritage, I sometimes use fruitcake to act as heatsinks, and sometimes make a SATA cables out of Haggis. I already have potato's covered.


    Also, to Jyuu, about Dell. They may have competitive pricing for mid-range PC's, but as a test, I decided to figure out how much the good PC I built was, and make a comparable one from Dell. Dell charged $3300 for a computer similar to the one I made for ~ 1400(counting mail in rebates). Add to that, my computer has better memory, more hard drive space, and a better graphics card than the Dell version. I think they really gype you in the end if you try to get a good(instead of generic) computer.

    It has become extremely easy to build computers from scratch today...it's not like it was back in the days of ISA and VESA cards, and trying to troubleshoot irq conflicts or memory allocation errors. If I never have to work on an autoexec.bat or config.sys file again in my life, I'll die happy.
