Do they do a good job of that at GuangHua? Down here in Taichung, shop assembly is inevitably a complete disaster.
Another irritating thing (again, maybe not at GuangHua), is the total absence of high-end hardware. Graphics cards, cases, aftermarket fans, whatever. They just don’t stock anything good.
That’s why I ended up with this crappy 8800gt, which (I now know) is notorious for cooling problems and memory flakeouts, and gives me no end of problems. It was the only 8xxx card in all of Nova. I bet they don’t have any of the new GTX200 series cards there even now, and I’d have to order it from like HongKong or somewhere :/[/quote]
They’re not bad. I’ve had about half a dozen built up for various in-laws and never had much of a problem with any of them. Of course I’m not worried about fixing any problems should they occur, but they certainly saved me some time with the initial put-together.
I should clarify what I said, btw. If you want to save money, and do not require specific high-end components for your computer, then you can save a lot of money by doing it this way.
If you need something very specific, then you’re going to pay a lot of money, same as everywhere.[/quote]
About how much money can you reasonably expect to save??
Say, for a rig like:
4 GB RAM
300 GB HDD
3.5 GHZ CPU (Dual or Quad Core would be nice)
Up to date graphics card, equivalent of GeForce 8800 GT or greater…
550 W PSU
How much (in NTD) does it REALLY cost in Guanghua? And can someone Google Map Guanghua for me? And give me some directions as to where to look for such supplies?
