Is this the impossible dream? Here's the story... First pc was a 486DX2/50 purchased from a local custom shop. Computer worked until I ditched it, although it did have modem problems out of the box, and eventually needed a new hard drive. Paid a very high premium price though. Second pc was a p200, bought from an online vendor that heavily advertised in every pc mag. Lasted a year before the chip fried itself (it had been overclocked without my knowledge). Company had subsequently gone under, cost me half the original price to replace the MB and chip at a local shop. Also dealt with a PackardBell, and Acer, and more recently a Compaq which were purchased by family members through B&M chain stores. All worked ok, but had at least one signficant hardware failure. Current pc is a Dell p3550, going on 3 yrs old. Reasonable price, but had a power supply and video card failure in the past year. Company tech support was marginally better than useless in all these cases. So, now I'm upgrading pc's again, and I'm searching for an online company that will deliver a customized computer to me that is reasonably assured of working for a few years. Dell is ok, but they are not quite configurable enough for me, and the price/service ratio isn't that great. Voodoo pc is the only company that actually appears to have consistently good reviews, but the price, wow. Alienware and Falcon NW are next in terms of mag reviews, but user reviews range from adequate to horrible. Micron, Gateway, and the like are basically Dell all over again. Anyone out there actually have a company that they've dealt with and had a consistently good experience? One note--I am well aware I would be better off building a system, but I just don't have the time for it now. thanks!
