Cruicial RAM

Western Digital Raptor Drives

Dell branded, built by nVidia graphics card (theres a sticker on the card).

Motherboard is built by Dell, but to Intel specs.

Sound Blaster Audigy 2 Plat...

Klipsch Speakers....

Dell Flatpanel that uses a Samsung LCD panel

Toshiba DVD ROM and DVD Burner

Intel Pro Gigabit Ethernet

I can keep going....

It's not as "generic" as you think. The fact is that they buy shit by the TON thus having the Wal-Mart effect on the prices. Trust me, I did a huge project on Dell in my Microecon class, they aren't as bad as you think.

If you want generic, go buy an HP or a E-Machines.

edit: If you don't believe me I would be happy to take some internal pics of the parts
