Choose some quality parts, take the time to carefully build the system properly, and hands-down you have a winner. Read through our guide here if you like. By all means you are most welcome to purchase another Dell. Just today in the workshop I diagnosed a Dell Dimension 5150 desktop with a faulty PSU and motherboard. Unfortunately the motherboard and case are proprietary and do not accept a standard motherboard form factor. So I sold him a new case, PSU, and motherboard, and swapped everything over for him. He was not happy with the extra expense when it could have been a lot simpler, but he does have a working system once again - and it'd be a lot easier next time round to upgrade/replace/repair if necessary.

when you build your own ...you will have 3 years warranty on the processor and mobo...5 years on the hard drives and lifetime on the RAM...3 or 5 years on the power supply...and if you do just a little research on the mobo , you can get one with lots of headroom...
just throwing in my 2 cents worth...

I have had one computer returned to me outside of warranty, the PSU had died, I gave him the right number to call and re-issued him an invoice (he had lost it) for proof of purchase and he sorted it all out.

Apparently, it lasts longer. Now instead it goes from 4-5 hours and this time it shutdowns all my programs, and all the good stuff. I can turn it on without a problem now, just this time it says.
System is now in safe mode. Please reset CPU or Memory Frequency.

It allows me to hit f1 continuing, then it says Windows didnt shut down correctly.
Then it occurs 4-5 hours later.
