I used to build my own stationary PC's back in the days when it was a  
lot cheaper, as you say. Today many vendors sell PC's at the same  
cost level so it doesn't make any economical sense to build your own.  
But regarding functionality of a music PC, it might still make sense  
to build your own, in order to pick the components that work well as  
a stable system.

BTW, OSX is no additional cost as it comes for free with the computer.

I'd rather eat less than make music with crappy tools "to save  
money" ;-)
