…In years past I always built my own...but I just don't have time to do all the research necessary to effectively play the price point razor edge of leading/cutting edge hardware…
Et tu Stoic?
Same here. Unless it's something that's being purpose built, customization
makes more sense than custom-building
these days. The 'bang for the buck' is usually very competitive or better than a custom build would be. And you get a warranty. Plus a copy of Windows (if you're still using it
) at the cheapest price point that's generally available.
But that's part of the ageing process I guess. Unnecessarily sweating technical details and pulling ones hair out no longer seems as much fun as it used to for some odd reason.
Anyway, that box sounds pretty sweet. Rock it for all it's worth.
