Has anyone noticed that in the last few years pre-configured systems have become very comparible in price to "build your own" systems.
I have always built my own systems rather than purchase a pre-configured unit based on two principles; price and also the satisfaction gleaned by building a system from scratch.
I am gonna be totally upgrading my current system soon. In fact i will be replacing everything so it will be a completely new system. However the cost is roughly the same price as a similar pre-configured system would be from several large manufacturers.
The price differential that was apparent a few years ago definately seems to have significantly reduced.
