Build vs. Dell Tags: Build Dell Systems Last response: August 19, 2010 5:16 PM in Systems Share Anonymous August 19, 2010 2:55:21 PM I just can't seem to get a build that is a better deal than Dell. Put this together: Built a similar machine on Dell with 9GB RAM, a 24' monitor, keyboard, mouse...and it was $1520 with 2 year warranty. I can't seem to get anywhere near that building my own with the following: i7 processor (860/920) Radeon 5870 6GB of tri-channel RAM Any advice here or should I just go with a Dell?

The reason why most people here like to build their own computers is because you get to buy quality parts individually instead of no-brand, cheap parts that Dell uses. m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
