TAKE A LOOK AT THEIR FORUMS AND VARIOUS PLACES ON THE NET OF THE QOS AND QA ISSUES -
I thought it would be easier than building one myself because i didn't quite have the time to build one myself at the time - so i built a 3k pc on their and they delivered it and it suffered 3 RMAs with no promise of full functionality in sight so i sent it back and said F*** it and built it myself - they skimp where they can and didnt include things that were supposed to come with the pc - it was a terrible experience
heres the thing I DID MY RESEARCH FIRST!!!!! and comcluded that it might have been a bad idea to go with them once id read so many horror storries - but i passed them on as a minority and that maybe i wouldnt have as much of a problem.... im ashamed i broke my own rule (never let someone else build my computers)
i built it myself - a faster computer with better quality components for the same price
i built it with my own quality assurance, something they skimp heavily on... sorry to carry on it was a horrible experience - and then they took about a month to refund all my money - and it was after realizing that i could save a lil money and drive it back to their warehouse (i live close enough to them in cali)
my 2 cents....
again sory to rant...
not sure about syx, but i think thats tiger direct brand... still wouldnt do it - theres nothing like building a powerful beast with your own 2 hands - its a good learning experience each time
if you absolutely must buy a prebuilt - consider digital storm - as ive heard nothing but good info about them as opposed to others (and they are an A+ on Better Business Bureau)

The thing about building my own is that I took the build from a topic on this forum, I know nothing of the parts and I wouldn't know how to put them together.
