Do they still suck or are they somewhat legit now?
As far as I know They are still crap. Try AvA direct.
Honestly, gotta go with the poster above. I have, for some stupid reason, tried time and again to find anything better than Newegg, and they've never been beat yet in my experience.

Agreed, Newegg all the way.
I just got a PC from Cyberpower.com and have been very pleased with it so far. Newegg indeed rocks, but I couldn't have built the system I bought from Cyberpower for less. As always, your mileage will vary, but so far the system I got is great.
I make spreadsheets at work - I don't want to make them for the games I play.
It depends on what type of platform you're buying. Desktops are generally cheaper to assemble yourself by a good margin. For Laptops, I'd recommend XoticPC.com, I got mine there, and for about 2500$, got a rig that can run anything my 6k desktop can run with just a few setting differences.
They also have Customer Support, something I never got from Ibuypower/Cyberpower (or whatever, same company). A small note on their willingness to help customers - I'm in the Navy, was deploying to Kuwait on Feb. 24. Due to billing issues on my part, I wasn't able to verify my order until Feb. 20th, XoticPC upped my order to expedited processing and had the laptop to me in time to take it with me. All free.
I think XoticPC is starting to make desktops too, they used to be nothing but Laptops. I can't comment on that side though. But my Sager Laptop from them is amazing.
Anyway, I'd really recommend them for the laptop market. And hand assemble desktops if you're comfortable with that.
