Dell vs Home Built?
Jun 25, 2008

I built my last computer and am inclined to build the next one, but are Dell's so terrible? I have one at work and it's really quiet (desktop model) and doesn't crash.

I configured this one for under $600. If I built my own, I think it would cost a lost more: Any thoughts?
