Default Decisions, decisions...

It's nearing time for an upgrade (read: it's time, just need $$) and I'm debating getting new individual parts or just biting the bullet and getting a Dell. The Dell would be a bit more expensive, but I'd basically be buying it for the "hassle-free" tech support/return ability; specs-wise, the two computers would essentially be the same. The only real difference would be the Dell would not have an SSD, but the home-built would.

So, since I'm on the fence, I'm putting it up to vote: Home-Built or Dell?

No fucking question about it. Build the damn thing.

I don't care how 'good' people say Dell is, anything you build yourself is going to be better.

If I live to be a hundred years old you better believe I'll still be building my own even then. (I won't live to be half that, lol)
