For a RODB, that's just pocket change ....
Didn't use Ebates.
Yeah. We like to keep the workstations mostly the same. I'll be building 6 more this coming month using the same parts. Then I'll set aside a spare board and video card... just in case one bites it inside our 24 month replacement schedule... so I have parts if needed. It's easier and faster to get a dead machine up and running if you have identical donor parts and Windows doesn't freak out. When they run 24/7 there is always gonna be that one that has some issue.
Yeah right. That's a total for several years of buying from them.
1) You should take the free money.
2) Totally understandable, I was just fWONKing with ya a little bit.
I'm only at probably $2500 lifetime.
Well... much of my buying has been for building office stuff. All of that wasn't for me. Probably about 25% was mine.
I remember when I liked building computers. I just got tired of the hassel of doing it all. I built a few for some friends and one for me. Mine started with a faulty ram and then about a year later fried the PSU and mobo so I replaced them and did some other upgrades then a month or so later the new motherboard died. Used name brand parts just a lemon. I said **** it and I bought a Dell. I know it costs more but online coupons coupled with buying them through their educational purchase program it's easy to get pretty good deals. Building isn't really hard, just not as easy as specing it out online and having it come ready to your door.
I like building them. We have had exceptional luck with our builds. There was a time that we just dialed up Dell and ordered them by the batch, but when one died, it was days before Dell had it solved. Days for a counter man might mean a hundred thousand dollars in sales. Now we have any failures up and running in an hour tops.
Wow.. I bet that will keep you busy.
