If I could do it, anybody can:-) Retail parts DO have manufacture

OMS and open box parts are significantly cheaper but usually come with
a very limited warranty 1-3 months (basically Dead On Arrival warranty)
Buying from the Dell might be a great good deal if you need lots of
low grade desktop computers which will be heavily abused. (like the
one we use in public libraries)

Why not built one from the parts. That way you would save bundle of

That is what I did.
I'm looking for a new pc.
I had a problem installing BSD (Free/Open/Net!) with the Dell
Dimension C521n. (Free/Open BSD website tells me that it support
the E521 that have the same configuration)
It don't recognize my dell usb keyboard and my SATA DVD Rom drive
was not detected at all.
I call Dell support and I was complaining that when I saw that
model on their website and I called to the vendors they said that
this model would come without SO (Windows). That I'll be free to
make my own choice on using any *unix SO.
Well.. now Dell will get my machine back and pay me back the amount
that I payed.
Now I want to buy a powerful machine to run Development things such
Java or Ruby on Rails on JBoss, running in some good db like
Postgresql or MySql.
I don't want to get a new surprise to run only Windows on my machine!
(I already have 2gb ddr2 ram, I want a powerful modern pc to run
Free or Open as my Desktop System)
Could you guys please help me ?
Thanks a lot all help is greatly appreciated
Not everyone has this option, or the expertise. And some people like
the warranty that comes from buying Dell products.
I'm a large proponent of custom-built machines, but there are some
cases (like with large companies or educational institutions) where it's
simple not feasible to build every machine from scratch with parts, and
dealing with Dell via their Gold / Corporate warranty and support is the
way to go. That's what I was referring to.
I know because I was 1st level IT support for a large department at
the University of Washington with over 700~800 machines. There's no way
a large amount of custom boxes really would work, and the handful that
were present were a pain to deal with more often than not.
