ah, a lonely prebuilt warrior! :p
I've had prebuilts and ones I built myself. If I see a cheap prebuilt with good parts, I often grab one versus building one. Just depends on the job at hand.

but I go back a long ways with computers.

its economically gruesome, but people that know how to built rigs like me, would be without work, if everyone would built their rigs themselves ;)

I can build my own rigs, I can even write my own code. Sometimes a prebuilt is just cheaper for what I need. alot of times I buy used prebuilts for pennies and put them into office duty around my bussiness. Its just economical. My current home rig is pretty nice. 1090t thuban, am3 board, 5770 gpu "getting upgraded to 6990/580 still waiting on benchmakrs but I know how thats comming out" The wife has a nicely built quad core pehon 9550 at 3ghz.

its not that I can't, its that sometimes its just easier to buy a prebuilt.

Intel 486DX 66Mhz - huge performance leap, had to downclock to 16Mhz to play DOS games like Wing Commander :p
Intel Pentium 100Mhz
Intel Pentium MMX 166Mhz OC'd to 233 - added an 80mm fan to heatsink for cooler operation ;)
Intel Celeron Covington 300Mhz - no cache, worst POS I ever had, could OC to 450Mhz but not too stable
Intel Pentium III Coppermine 500Mhz OC'd to 583Mhz
Intel Pentium III Tualatin 1.13Ghz OC'd to 1.33Ghz
Intel Pentium 4 Northwood 2.8Ghz OC'd to 3Ghz

Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 2.4Ghz OC'd to 3.2Ghz
Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 2.83Ghz OC'd to 3.7Ghz
Next in line: Intel Core i7 2600K 3.4Ghz OC'd to - who knows... sky's the limit :p

Out the way.
Limiting myself strictly to x86 and x64 stuff, things that I actually purchased, (as oppossed to "inheriting"), and they are not necessarily listed in order of appearance. (As you might imagine, quite a bit of this stuff was/is used concurrently. I have a lot of PCs around the house.) And, I'm sure I'm overlooking or forgetting a few. Can't imagine why that would happen...

(I have a LAN at home and many of these rigs are still used to run some older games. Others support old operating systems, such as Win95 and 98SE, OS/2, and, yes, even DOS. Some are just, well... ...old friends.)
Whoa! that's a long list! :twitch:

I can build my own rigs, I can even write my own code. Sometimes a prebuilt is just cheaper for what I need. alot of times I buy used prebuilts for pennies and put them into office duty around my bussiness. Its just economical. My current home rig is pretty nice. 1090t thuban, am3 board, 5770 gpu "getting upgraded to 6990/580 still waiting on benchmakrs but I know how thats comming out" The wife has a nicely built quad core pehon 9550 at 3ghz.

its not that I can't, its that sometimes its just easier to buy a prebuilt.
true, but also, sometimes you just want to know you have done something yourself :laugh:

If I had a ton of rigs to keep track of, especially putting together rigs for work, I would definately go prebuilt. You won't catch a prebuilt rig in my own home, though.
