      Did you buy your PC ready built or did you build it yourself ?

      The one's we have now are ready built however a few years ago I did have a PC that was built from scratch. I always prefer PC's that are built from scratch as you can get the specs just as you want it which is always great and alot of the time for alot cheaper price than buying one already built.

      Mine was ready-built. But I'm saving up for one in the future which I'll build myself. Got myself a nice rig already thought up!

      It's great to be able to do that I feel. What kind of computer do you have thought up to build Haze?

      A super beastly one! Hahah. I'll probably be waiting a long time though. What with tech changing like every 2 years or so now!

      Some places like walmart.com are starting to offer customizable computers that have more or less of all the things you might need in a custom built computer.

      Of course, there are better places to buy a custom built computer from.

      The only gripe i have is most times they max out at 2 GB of RAM and i need way more than that to run most MMO games online without severe lag.
