    I've been looking online and can't find a prebuilt computer that I like, so I've been looking for places that will make one for you. If any of you could suggest a place, I'd appreciate it. I looked around on newegg.com and couldn't find an option for them to build it. I know most of you are going to say build it myself, but I have no idea where anything goes in a computer. I know what I want, just not how to build it.

    if you give one of the local shops a call they should be able to do it for ya for fairly cheap

    Yeah, I know pretty much what I want. I'd rather do it online though, so anyone know of any places online that can do it for me?

    mwave.com has a 'barebones' so u can put in the general stuff u want and they can do it for u... i recommend u do NOT do their full build option.

    Alls u have to do then is add your hard drive/vid card and u are set.

    Why shouldn't I do the full build? Do they use shitty products or what?

    I highly reccomend www.monarchcomputer.com , I have delt with them before in many different ways, including buying a new AMD Athlon 64 FX-53 system, and everything has been great. Quality work and support, also do local work if you are in the Atlanta area :)
    Let me know if you have any questions.

    no, just more money your throwing at them for them connecting a hard drive. I dont know why u dont do a fresh build yourself but i would expect that you can at least push a video card into place and push in the IDE ribbon and power cord??

    If you're in Canada then http://www.ncix.com will let you choose your components and they'll put it together for you and ship it to you.
