Has anyone here ever built their own computer? What is your take on it? Was it worth it? What are your specs like? If you haven't, is there any reason why you are against it? I built my first computer with a couple last August, courtesy of an extra $1,000 I picked up for doing a small officiating job at a local country club. I was extremely nervous to do it, as it was a rather large investment to me to perform something my knowledge was limited in. However, it was totally worth it. My computer is rocking an i7 2700k processor and a 560TI EVGA graphics card. The thing I loved about building it was that I could power pack it for much less than buying it at the store. I probably saved about $500 by doing so. Additionally, it is relatively easy to replace individual parts if you needed to, which is handy for small upgrades.
