    The biggest problem with these builts are usually with PSU...
    The crap they include isn't healthy for any decent PC.

    Don't your shop offer assembling for some $10? usually you can choose whatever parts you want (inlcuding case and PSU) and they will built that PC for you. No different from pre-built ones, except that it won't be cheapened on critical parts like PSU.<style id="pageBrightnessCustomCSS">body{zoom:106%!import ant;}</style>

    I do not know where you got the notion that I had a shop that would put a whole computer together for 10 bucks....but I can say...you are DEAD WRONG!

    I couldn't say unless I was able to see the power supply model number which they do not seem to give.
    I tend to avoid these and have never heard of that website. Have you checked CyberPowerPC or any other configurable system websites?
    No shop I know of would build a PC for $10. You're looking at somewhere around $75-$100.
