Should I buy that build, or would I be able to build one for even cheaper than that? I've been trying for a $1200 build with the new i7 processor and a decent amount of RAM, like at least 8 or 12GB. I know this XPS build has 6, but I might just upgrade after buying it. If those features are still pricy, (because I've heard pretty much all builds made by manufacturers themselves are 100% of the time more expensive than they have to be) should I continue to shoot for my $1200 build?
If I do shoot for that build, what components should I get?
So far I want to get something along the i7 series of processors, at least 1TB ddr3 hard drive, and a good graphics card. I haven't gotten very far deciding what I want yet, though, since this is my first build. I'm hoping not to get ripped off. Can anyone help me, please?
