Yeah, I've been throwing clunkers together outta spares for a while now. Its like the same thing only all the parts are new.

It's rather fun to build computers. After fixing them for so long and making Frankenputers..it's real good to treat yourself. Not to forget to mention everything comes in awesome good quality. Makes you feel like you're building a Porshe.

If you're going to run one way, might as well run it back too

The thought is pure ambiguous

Easier putting together a new computer with good parts than ones with assorted old parts. Everything just loads and runs better with less messing with drivers etc. I've been building them for myself and relatives for many years.
