    Well - I am a bit scared of putting it together on my own, that's why I paid for assembling.

    They have a configurator which tells you if you try to put a 2011 processor on a mainboard with a 1155 socket or something less obvious.
    They are answering questions (like mine: will that case be big enough for my Alpenföhn Himalaya cpu cooler? - it wasn't and they told me how wide the case has to be to accomodate that cooler) and they are putting it together.

    Heh ya know, I used to be like that - but now, simply don't have the time to mess about. I need it to 'just work'... sure, I like to pick the parts, but even having someone know what works well together saves a ton of time researching.

    The days of enjoyment tinkering with PC's are long gone.. it's now a tool. :)


    I always say: "Building a computer from parts is only cheaper as long as your time is of no value."

    True.. I guess if you have very specific requirements its worth it.. But my brief was nothing more than 'as fast as possible please'

    sounds good to me.

    I do appreciate people trying help me but yeah I am in no frame of mind to deal with building a computer.

    I couldn't even imagine owning a system I didn't build from the ground up. I'm rarely satisfied unless I know the details of every last component that goes into my machine.

    I wanted to build my own system but at the price I was quoted for this system it was only about $300 more than if I did it myself. I justified the $300 by telling myself that is the 3 yrs support I have with it

    He's a jolly good former French Foreign Legion Major running a bar in the islands of Les Saintes. This picture is to be shown if someone (playing characters) uses a gun or other weapon during the bar fight with a group of German treasure hunters. The fight is almost unavoidable as the characters will try to figure out why the Germans are talking to some local fishers, and the Germans do have a German temper ;-) Then a handful drunken locals will join in, hitting anyone standing close (they are not picky as long as it's a fight)

    Whoo-hoo! Happy Hundred everybody!

    But that's a good question -- fun as this is, why are topics still being restarted after 100 pages? I thought that was one of the issues that moving to the new store/forum software was supposed to fix.
