Hey guys, I am waiting for the December "What Hardware to Buy" to create a "Premium Build". I have been discussing it with my father as I am willing to spend up to 2,000 US $ on this. I will not be buying a monitor (unless there is a sweet deal on a big one somewhere), keyboard, mouse, speakers, headphones, or graphics card. So all other components are game...basically everything that goes in the tower. Here is why I am writing: My dad is giving me a hard time saying that if I custom build a PC and something goes wrong, the different manufacturers will say "so-and-so" is the problem, not ours. For example he said if you get a harddrive error the HD company will say it is the motherboard, the motherboard company will say it is the RAM, the RAM company will say it is the HD etc.... I don't want to make him mad, but I really want to build my own PC so I can get the power I want for a better price than buying a pre-built one. Which is what he wants me to buy...an $1800 prebuilt computer. I am not stupid and can read directions and forums, but I have not built my own PC before. Like I said I am going to get the parts from the "What Hardware to Buy", if i can find them in stock, so I know that they will all be compatible, and I am going to post a setup here for scrutiny. How "safe" is building your own pc, Error/problem wise? Thanks Oh ps, if anyone has any recommendations for a pre-built high end computer, link me please.
