Learn how to fish and you can fish the rest of your life. As Marcus pointed out, knowing your system inside out has its advantages. It will save you time and money in the long term. Power supply goes out? No problem. Bad memory? Easy fix.

Another big advantage to building your own is component selection and performance. Faster RAM, video cards, overclocking... You're not limited to what Apple dictates.
Total newbie!: i've checkout ur hardwares thru the website and found a hands on tutorial Build Your Own Intel Core i7 Machine - A HardwareZone DIY Special :: Articles :: and yes peter ur right in everything! now is the software 'hackintosh' - peter could u guide me on the soft etc.. (i've the adobe CS4 web premium)..emmh steps by steps:)

Knowing that my hobby with photography & videography will be going on a higher step is logical - getting the iMac & iMovie i probably will be upgrading...say in 6 mths time. so working out on a budget & productive hardware is the way to go...(that is after peter chang post on his PC rig!)

Its happening!
