So I was browsing the web for some new PC's, and found a site called XIDAX. Their PC's are pretty cool looking, but I was wondering from y'all experts if I am getting a good price for one of their PC's...

The one I had in mind was their XIDAX x5...

No. You could build a much better PC for that amount of money.

That build:

Thanks for the direct link.

I tend to agree with the Bran_Flakes -- you could build a pc for a better price.

Consider, however, they are building the pc for you. Just to be fair.

The final point I want to make is take the part list they give you and replicate it in PC part picker (as close as possible). That is the best way to see how much their "service" costs.

I will add that until now, I've never heard of this company. Not a bad thing and I'm not a market expert. I do build my desktops, after all, but that does mean something.

Companies I've heard of: ibuypower and OriginPC.

It may have just been their advertising and sponsorship of gaming tournaments that I've attended or watched though.

They also have lifetime warranties or so I saw on an advertisement so double check that.

If that is true, I'm quite sure there are limitations. Like "only labor" or "only software" or something like that. Warranties are not worth much in real world value.

Ya know XIDAX was pretty high up in the Intel Extreme Gaming Rig Challenge 2017 along with NCIX and OriginPC

That's bad. If you want, I'll build a PC for you for $20, shipping, and whatever tips you would like. Just PM me, I'll design a build for you too if you would like.

Have you had anyone take you up on this offer yet? I could understand why someone would be sketched out by this.

One. It's hard, because I can't really go more expensive because people will think it's too expensive.
