I haven`t built a computer yet, have been shopping and considering though. My question arises from my past experiences with computers. Over the past ten years, I`ve had three computers, numerous internet providers, and feel I`ve been screwed by providers, manufacturers (by spending money keeping or repairing to keep my great PC`s going:), and spending all night on the phone on hold, so I can speak to someone I can`t understand. You see, I`m sick of spending my hard earned $$$$ on bound-to-be junk products. so the question is- Do I do extensive research and build my own PC so it`s fast AND long lasting, or do I just spend $289.00 at Wally-World on a cheap system, knowing it`s gonna start sucking in 3 or 4 months ? Any help will be appreciated! By the way, I`m not a gamer, just a hardcore Web Surfer who doesn`t want to spend all night waiting for a site to come up, or for my PC to decide to do what it`s told. Thanks in advance, and sorry for the long post, just wanted to get it all straight.
