Custom Building Desktops for Small Business?
Posted on 2011-09-28
Greetings, this isn't so much a specific question as it is a request for opinion.
Currently I am the IT head for a small business. I support about 50 desktops and a couple of servers/VMs. As with everyone else, budget is an issue so I am considering custom building five new desktops instead of going with HP/Dell/Etc.
My first concern is obviously support, but with the money I can save I can buy replacement parts and still come out ahead. So it has its upsides. I am planning to use quality parts, but not flashy "gamer" parts. I'm going for stability not super speed.
Has anyone had experience with this? Good idea? Bad idea?
