This is the 6th computer I will own and the first one I'm not going to put together myself. I just put together what I thought I would want and then went over to Dell to see what I could come up with and came to the conclusion that it just wasn't worth the time to do it myself. Dell seems to be doing it right...good components, customizable and almost the same price. Plus with Dell packaging it's almost guaranteed to be quieter than anything I build. Is this the future? Has anybody else come to a similar conclusion?
