Probably from one of the many shops in Holland that allow you to pick the parts, and they will put it together for you for about 100 euros.

Probably get memory Express to do it. I can still choose everything and then pay them to assemble it.

Depending on the application.

For general purpose or enterprise uses Dell is easily the best choice.

Building is not overrated. It allows you the flexibility to include any component you want. It allows you to avoid crappy components like the ones many ebay vendors "hide" in their build (PSU, HDD etc.). It allows you to upgrade and maintenance your system yourself. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, it allows you to save a lot of money.

Only saves you money if you're comparing against Alienware Falcon Voodoo whatever they calls it.

Can't beat prebuilt on price for budget non-gaming PCs... and Foxconn isn't going to fly their technicians to your house... Antec won't cover shipping to/from.. AMD....etc...

While Dell does call over techs... and cover shipping to/from you to repair center under warranty (although... they could screw up your system even more...)
