I am looking to buy a comp over the internet, but I want it to be customizable (choose what to put in it) Looking for a site with low prices and that ships to canada. One I already know of is Ibuypower.com. Send your suggestions :)

That site is a little confusing, and I can get the same setup at Ibuypower, which ships from the US, for less actually

building one yourself would be cheaper :) save on the labor (or pay the labor charge to yourself for a great job) It's not that hard really

Simple as ABC... but also a little time consuming for first timers :) Nowadays the ports and plugs are made so it will go in only way, or color coded :)

Dell....always dell. They are completely upgradable and customizable plus the technical support is unmatchable. They aften have specail deals too that will save you 100 to 500 bucks depending on the system. Plus, they often have free upgrades.

I agree, i've seen sometimes $750 dollars off coupons for dell, not to mention if you find one of those you can customize t he computer and crank up the insides to state of the art.

Not necessary true. Plus if there's a problem with the machine you will have to spend money to get it shipped to a service center which costs about $50

I have never seen a computer (or atleast a notebook) without a discount. Usually you can get monitor discounts too. Also when you page down the customize list sometimes you can get a free ram upgrade to a gig. When ur computer parts mess up it can get irritating, but i have never experienced that yet, nor would i send my comp back to dell lol, i'm a DIY kinda guy.
