For the common man trying to have better for less money...the simplest route would be to read and save yourself a grand or more over Alienware's overpriced crap.

One of many "do-it-yourself" building PC tutorials...

Once again, thats for you pc nerds. Its a hobby for you, which is great. Believe it or not there are actually people out there who love gaming, but could give a shit less as to how to build one.

I dont necessarily agree. They use the same products that we purchase. Just gotta know how to tweak the system

It's really not that hard bro. Actually, building it is pretty simple, it's the oc'ing that can be tricky. Honestly Chris, if you knew how simple it is, you would probably build a few of them just because. ;)

When I mean build, I mean everything that goes with it - the research, building, and loading the proggies. Its simply not up everyones alley, wether its due to interest or time.

Sure, I could spend the time reading, researching, ordering, and building one. But frankly, I'd rather go online, order one, then go out and play with my kids or shoot my bow :)
