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
