Actually I disagree -- It's usually NOT cheaper to build it yourself - you can't compare huge manufacturing volumes with a 1-off build.

Cheap manufacture in Taiwan and elsewhere means you can pick up a reasonable rig for a very cheap price these days.

However if you do "Roll your own" you'll get a really good purpose built rig which should be just fine for what you need to do.

Don't make the big mistake of thinking that it's actually cheaper however.

(Note if you ALREADY have parts that you can re-use such as memory, power supply, monitor, case etc. then it *can* be cheaper since you don't have to source every component from scratch).

BTW I'm NOT against building your own -- on the contrary - I'm all in favour but it's NOT cheaper.
