It will hopefully won't cost much at all. The only problem I've had
with ordering online each part, is that UPS had supposedly lost one of
my packages, Newegg right away offered me a full refund, or the
replacements plus free shipping. But it ended up that UPS delivered
the original package by surprise on time with everything else. They
are also very good about taking RMA'd items and things that are DOA,
but the warranties that boxed computers if they come with would be
nice, I agree. But so far, from all of the systems that I've built for
my friends so far, I've had not one call of something gone wrong, and
for one system, its been nearly a year, the other is nearing 4 months,
and the last is nearly a month now. So I've been pretty satisfied with
newegg's performance with the parts they've provided, and the services.
But all of those systems were over $1200, and there is a lot more
saving when you get past $1000 when home-building. So this is a little
more difficult. I'm thinking getting the HP, and upgrading, such as
new PSU, sound card, headphones, and possibly the case itself.
Although all this might void a warranty in anyways.
