Sure, but it generally isn't worth it for me. I'm just looking for cheap combos ready to go that can be used -- people that upgraded to newer high-end stuff, for example.
My current setup is mostly old cheap Dell Vostros that someone have me for free that I stripped. So, it just isn't worth it to me to put too much into any higher-end stuff.
