What is the best long-term choice for best computer with dutrability of motherboard, power suppl, dvd/cd, etc, from a hardware perspective out there or does it matter because everything is made from the least durable materials possible to save on size and weight?

A custom built PC is best and most durable. They also give you the best bang for your buck.

I've heard, and experienced first hand, some of the crappy parts that commercial computer builders such as Dell, HP, Gateway, etc. For instance my friend had a Dell computer for about a year. The motherboard died for no reason 3 days after the warranty had expired.... Dell support wouldn't even help him since he had no warranty. They sometimes use cheap parts, where people won't notice until it dies, such as the motherboard, power supply, and ram.

Still, sometimes the computers from these commercial companies can have good deals, in which the computer comes with a discount on monitors, speakers, and other things of the sort.
