When I looked into building my own budget system I found that for budget systems it's actually cheaper to buy a Dell or something than to build yourself. But the upside to building your own is your components are typically warrantied longer than a built system and hopefully a little more reliable.
Well it is significantly cheaper for me because I already have a case, hard drive, all fans and cables, optical drive, wireless card, keyboard, mouse and monitor. So basically this is more of a significant upgrade than a whole new machine.
