Yeah but he said he spent $2000 on it, there's no way it could have cost him that much if he wanted it cheap and good.

What are you even talking about?  I saved about $500 on sales.  It would have cost at least 2500 if there wasn't a mega sale going on.  My friend who got almost the same computer as my spent about 2800 because it was an Alienware.  Sure it look a little better (though mine is still awesome (LEDS!)) but it cost 800 more.

Which is a better option.

Build your own PC from scrap and get no services, and if there's driver problems, then you have to deal with it yourself.

Or

Buy it from a computer company (Dell, HP, Compaq, Alienware, Mac, etc) either used or refurbished (or new if you want) and get support in case anything happens?

Get a Mac or if you really want Windows, may God have mercy on your soul, build your own PC. Buying from a computer company you pay at least a few hundred just for the company name and as for the service, you're still better off calling someone you know to help you or bring it to a computer store to get it checked. The company services all suck. They get ignorant people to answer phones and just tell people to format when they have a problem. Like Dell, I think they've pretty much been given an award for the worst service ever.

As for driver problems, you don't need anyone for that. Lets say the driver for your video card is acting up. All you need to do is go to the company website, download the driver, install and reboot. You don't need to wait 30 minutes on a phone for some ignorant Indian guy to help you, who in the end will probably tell you to format because that's pretty much the only thing they can do.

Uh, if there is a problem with an individual part then I can just phone the company.  They all have lifetime (limited) warranties.

My computer isn't really a gaming computer, as I only use it for a few low end games.  I'll get a much more upgraded one when my Dad passes down his old computer after he upgrades though.

Here is a good analogy for my computer.
Picture a car with only a seat and a steering wheel, nothing else.
That is my computer.

if you want me to get specific:

Windows XP (GOD KNOWS WHY, THIS COMPUTER WAS BUILT FOR WIN 98 WTF!?)
Crappy Monitor (I think it is 14 x 16)
7GB Hard Drive (Half of it was used for the OS)
Sound Card = None
Graphics Card = FAIL. (it cannot run Halo One, WTF)
510mb RAM
Processor = FAIL (Intel Premium III 660Mhz)


The Most advanced part of my computer is the USB laser mouse I bought because ball mouses suck.
