Default PC: Buy or Build?

I plan to buy Digi 001 (for PC) as soon as v5.1 is released. As for the PC, should I:

A) buy standard (e.g. IntelliStation)
B) buy one custom config'd for audio
C) build my own

??

Hi, I bought a custom system that has had 0 problems to this day. If you can build one to the Digi specs, it may be cheaper. It really depends on your preference I guess.

I wouldn't buy a standard system. Go for a custom built one, or put one together if you feel confident enough. I built mine (with Intel CPU & chipset) and it is fine.

Beware the Pentium/non-Intel chipset combination!

A buddy of mine, Justin Lynch, builds them:

but if you are computer savvy, you should be able to build a killer system yourself....
