Does anybody know anything about Xidax computers. They look like a really good company but I'm not sure if they are the ones I should be buying a new computer from next year.

Not a company I have seen before. Looks no bad.

I've seen a couple different websites like that. They are not bad, and just "slightly" cheaper than some of the others, but... if you know what you are doing, building a computer yourself would be SOOOOO much cheaper than what they are advertising. Most of what they are offering are so much more expensive than if you bought all the parts separately and then put them together yourself.

Now the only question is, do you trust yourself enough to do it yourself, or pay almost $1,000 more than it should for them to do it? Nothing wrong with that, just a question.

Same here, I have always enjoyed the thrill of getting all the parts and getting my area prepared to put it all together. I do recommend for anyone who is planning on and is new to building pc's to check out a few (don't just watch one, look for no less than 3 minimum) youtube videos on building, and do some research on spec websites to see what experts say. I have been building computers for 20 years and I will still keep my main pc up so if I come across something that just doesn't make sense I can look it up.

Other than that, just have fun and always, ALWAYS, have a friend on speed-dial that knows what they are doing lol.

If as others have said, you want to do it yourself to save the $$, but don't know how. Newegg has a very good 3 part "How to build a PC" video series. That is where I learned to build a PC. After 3 builds and doing a from scratch(no kits or AIO's) water cooling build, I now consider myself a pro builder just from watching that video a few years ago.

Can confirm that the Newegg videos are great. Built 2 PCs ever since watching those videos. There are a few other videos I've watched that promoted the use of anti-static bracelets which you should take into account. It's not really needed AFAIK as long as you're careful around the hardware.

At the time when I started no youtube was around lol. So learned by reading all the material that came with the stuff.
