In the bad old days it's a pain in the backside to build your own because of the jumper crap needed to deal with, but these days it's quite a lot easier since it's all just plug and play.

Yeah, I checked the breakers outside and reset my whole house. System now runs!! But for awhile the led lights on the 780i weren't even on. F$#king old wiring in my house... If you all want some advice, but a house that was made in at the oldest the 1990's. This P.O.S was built in 1940!!

Tripp lite makes a new digital UPS that is worth checking out IMO.

I dont think there is anything wrong with a prebuilt PC, if I didnt have that little extra time that I do and the love to put things together I would buy prebuilt.

these are a few of the people I would buy from

Nordic PC

Mythlogic

Murderbox

and if I wanted a big producer, probably AVADirect.

Last time I bought a pre-built rig was in 1990.
