They also have some pre-assembled PCs at decent prices for those who don't want to chose parts one by one. Downside is that customer support if you live far away seems limited (ok as I live close by).

And beware if you order from a US website: you can end up with terrible custom brokerage fees in addition to the regular taxes (I hate UPS...)
Yeah, D3's had really good luck with SohoDiffusion. If you could find a place like that near you it would be ideal. You'd be able to pick and choose every single part in your machine, giving you all of the benefits of a build-your-own without actually having to build it.

Fix their home team score on the board to the debt clock, they can win every game 17,000,000,000,000 to 24. Losing team gets taxed by the IRS 100%, then droned."
