I was thinking of buying a computer, but i'm not sure if it would be better to build one? if i was too build one, this means i can just customize it with the things i want. i would like to be able to play games such as Day Z, Star wars the old republic, World of Warcraft etc. i need advice on whether to build or buy one.
