    Well prices have dropped.
    You are like these people I deal almost everyday.
    Me: Your PC is way too slow, you need to upgrade.
    Person: But it cost me $2500! It's a $2500 computer! How can it be this slow?
    Me: Well when did you buy it? It's worth $200 now.
    Person now gets annoyed when the truth is slapped onto him.

    I'm one of those people. In my life, I have had four computers. This one is about two years old, another is four years old, then one's eleven years old and the last is older than I am.

    And yes, they're all in use. Hey, if it works...

    its like moores law on LSD =D

    ah well, Honestly Jyuu i dont know what id do with a computer that powerful. the only high end PC game that interests me is Supreme Commander. All i really want is something that can run WMP, Mozilla, Azureus, Photoshop CS2, AIM, and MSN all at the same time without a lick of slowdown. I really just want a terabyte HDD and 3+ ghz processor and 2+ gigs of really good ram. everything else is secondary*

    * as in i dunno what else i need =[


    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

    Oh yeah, I forgot that most people just stick to Dell, HP or Emachines.
    I hate pre-builts. I was going to build a PC for my cousin, becuase he said he needed a new one, and knew I knew a lot about them. I had the parts picked out, for what he wanted to do, even a custom case. His best friend of about 7 years, who claims to be a computer whiz? He talks him into buying a pre-built HP. His reason? "It comes with a warranty!" Yea....That's because they KNOW it's a piece of shit, and is gonna F up sometime.

    EDIT: I can't spell.

    Warranty?
    You get MORE WARRANTY if you build it yourself.
    What's the warranty on pre-builts? One year? And that's on anything, right?

    When you build it yourself you get better warranty: Manufacturer's warranty.

    Hard drives: Minimum of 3 years and 5 years for Seagate
    Video card: 3 years from MSI, Sapphire, ATI, etc and lifetime from BFG and XFX.
    Motherboard: 3 years
    RAM: Lifetime
    Optical drive: 1 year, but it costs like $35 for a DVD burner
    CPU: 3 years

    i gave proof that it was more than 700$ in france (the atlantic is big, so it costs a lot to carry the packages XD)

    ps : not that it matters to me as i won't be buying it

    edit about warranty : generally it is 1 year, but for only 500$ more you can have 2 years of warranty !

    Exactly. But apparently, I have no idea what I'm talking about, despite my having built all of the PCs I've ever owned, aside from 2. (Those being the ones I had at 8, and 11 years old.)
