Basically, I built it because I wanted certain components in/on the 
system and could not get it configured that way from any vendor.  I've 
built every PC I've ever owned.  I select components based on the type 
of use they would get, and the applications they are going to run.  As 
for price, sometimes cheaper, sometimes more expensive depending on what 
you put in it, but in the end, when it all comes together, you have 
something to be proud of because you built it yourself.
