I've finally amassed the cash to buy a sweet ass new machine. My needs are still the same as they were here
-- CAD, graphic design stuff, a bit of video and programming -- but I've decided to get a PC assembled specifically for my needs.
But.. how? I know I walk into a shop, slap a schwack of cash on the counter and push the "make-sweet-ass-computer-now" button, but how do I go about finding a decent, reliable store to do this? I'm in Toronto, Ontario, but general advice, as well as specific store recommendations is welcome.
I've also been poking around for guides and documentation on this process, but while I'm here: does anyone know of any particularly useful references or such?
