Who would you choose?

I'm looking to get myself a new PC. My current one is about 3 years old and I have some saved up cash. In my youth I loved to sit around and research the best parts and put the thing together. But now with age I've gotten lazy. I just want to buy something, show up on my doorstep, plug it up, install OS(if needed) and the rest of my gaming stuff. My question to the community is what company would you go with for a custom gaming pc? Cyberpower, DigitalStorm, Origin, etc?

Well since none of them actually make components, choose the one that has the right price for the right components.  I mean, all they do is put it together.

True but I was looking for someone who maybe had experience with the customer service of a company or maybe the quality of the build overall.

To my eyes they all cut corners here and there and pull a fast one on you, so in the end i don't know if it really matter who f*ck you up...

i'd probably go with the one that is closest to me and/or has the better warranty/customer service because you almost certainly end up there sooner than you think.

Just have the parts delivered to your door and put them together? mounting a pc has never been so straight forwards, if you can do it why pay a premium for someone else to do it without the same quality and effort and with weird hardware pairing.

you pay a hefty fee to get someone else to  pick out the parts and build it for you.  You also miss out on customization.  Check to see if a local computer store will build it for you, for a fee typically under $100,  it would still be cheaper and better to go that route.. 

as for pre builts i have no info on it, since ive always just built my own.

well, I'm still with the pcmr here. build it yourself man. To be serious, all listed above are well known and good builders to buy from, as long as you are willing to pay for it. and select the right components of course

Honestly, you probably have a system builder in your neighborhood who wouldn;'t mind helping.  I'd help my neighbor put one together for beer :)
