Proprietary Vs. Frankenstein PC's

By Rocko Da Pimp ·
With all the changes in todays PC's it's ever so amazing that some of the PC's i've worked on could run so well. Big company PC's vs. the every-day-Frankenstein PC competing in durability, price, and of course speed. Though "proprietary" PC's look and run nice, there's always the gray shady area that bogs it down, whats in it. Now for the "average" not so savvy computer user, there is contentment. But for the "Strung-out" gamer who logs multitude hours online "Fragging", who's dependancy derives from the factor of speed, the "Frankenstein" is the way to go. Not to mention it is also the cheapest way. Creation of a PC has always astonished me. Especially the way some of these "Monsters" are put together. Hehehe. Whats your insight?

Many things can change the price of a pc. When you take into account the time it takes you to select components, purchase, build and test them. It may make building a pc more expensive then buying one. When you buy a "package" from someone it may come bundled with support options, software, and a warrenty that exceeds the manufacturers warrenty. I prefer to get a "package" deal and let someone else deal with the problems.
