To Build or Buy, That is the Question - To Build or Buy, That is the Question
Tue, March 08 2005 | 12:54PM | PermaLink Feedback?
The question of whether to build a computer or to buy a pre-built computer has been asked more and more in the last year or two. With OEM manufactures such as Dell, HP, and Gateway, running advertisements all over your newspaper, TV, and internet using various marketing techniques, people seem to drool at the "blazing speeds and performance" that they offer for a very low price. These OEM dealers seem to offer top of the line technology for a very low cost, and some people have started to question whether building is really as beneficial as it was a few years ago. In this article, we are going to compare these OEM systems part by part with a custom built computer, comparing prices and other useful information to show the pros and cons of each. This is intended to help your decision, not make it for you: there are pros and cons to each.
