Hello,

 

I am planning on either build or buy a premade PC. In fact, I am not sure if there is big difference in the saving part

 

I am looking for these specs

 

processor i7

Storage 1TB

RAM 4GB

 

I mostly care about these stuff

 

I am looking for something that would be around 600$ or less

 

Thanks in advance

 

I am not sure if this is a good deal

That is a decent machine for the money.  I highly recommend 8GB for Windows 7 and later, which this machine has.

 

How do you plan on using the machine?

sorry for getting back to you late, anyway I don't have a specific use that I am looking for, all I want is to have a full option machine that can does most of thing, and also that can last for long term

 

I didn't find clear answer weather should I consider building a machine by myself or just buy a premade one

Building vs Buying is a personal decision.  If you don't feel comfortable working on the insides of your machine you are better of buying.

 

Building will allow for more upgrade options in the future.  Normally a manufactured machine is very limited in the upgrades that can be done, normally limited to RAM, hard drives, and possibly the video card.

 

Myself, I build, but mainly because I have a lot of hard drives in my machine.  The only upgrade I normally do is a video card after two or three years to get me another year or two out of my build.  My current machine specs are in my profile.

Hi Fadi, if you are just going for general use, and a bit of hardcore gaming, i think it is wise to pick and unlocked I5 instead. Unless you plan on using the I7's hyperthreading, the I5 would be just fine. 

 

And sorry, the link doesnt work.
