We are trying to configure a system that is to be used for pictures and internet only but will be useful in 4-5 years so we want it powerful. We put together a system on Dell for $1100 but I am unhappy and confused with what they are offering. It seems like the configuring of the same system in different categories lists a different price. Also I would like more flexibility in having a more powerful processor without being forced to pick higher end video cards and such. It also seems to me the the bigger companies are kind of bloated in what they offer.
Any suggestion on a company/s that would allow me to truly custom build a computer would be appreciated.
