  1. Why are you buying a pre built? Building is easy and much more fun. Also you probably won't beable to upgrade the graphics card as generally OEMs include the smallest possible PSU which is not good for upgrading.

    Also the quality of the components are very bad. When you build yourself you have much better components and can include a bit bigger PSU than is currently required.

    Conclusion: Build Yourself.
  2. ^+1... 100% agreement, specially if you plan to upgrade down the road.

  4. ok thanks for replaying to my post. i have build a computer in a dutch site.

    but when i built a computer with a similar things as a "aspire 3300x", and getting some room for later upgrading. I will get over the 800 euro's range, and i only have 480 euro's and over 4 month from now i can get 300 euro's.

    Hey mate. Is that site a PC hardware shop or a place that allows you to configure your PC before you buy it off them, sorry I can't read Dutch :p.

    By "build yourself" I mean buy the components of a PC hardware store and then assemble the PC, it should end up pretty cheap. You can just read a guide on building and you should then have a pretty good idea, the part which requires the most knowledge is the choosing of parts but we can help you with that :).

    Yes the PSU is most likely upgradeable but still it doesn't change anything.

    I'm not to sure of a good PC hardware shop in Europe but someone else may a have a good one they can share.
