Why buy from Curtis Systems Software P.C.  ?

Quality: A top priority at CSSPC is Quality. We select high quality hardware and use it in house before offering it for sale. CSSPC knows that having a good foundation requires having components that withstands our testing and approval. Our extensive testing knowledge base has been amassed from decades of exercising along with verifying a wide variety of computing systems. CSSPC offered systems are balanced with components that are sized for robustness and for an overall well performing system. Our systems use wherever possible ECC memory [currently ALL our Desktops have ECC functionality] and we choose components that incorporate it in their designs. CSSPC believes ECC memory protection functionality should be used on ALL business computers (not just servers). This adds much reliability and stability, while many others cut these corners to 'save' a few dollars, CSSPC avoids that false 'shortcut'.

Experience: CSSPC has over 25 years designing and implementation in the computing field. We have been building systems for others and internally for nearly 20 years. We have the experience to provide you with a great product. CSSPC also has much experiences with the same components you will be using since we use the same stuff internally.

Value: CSSPC offered systems are more than hype. We realize that it's unreasonable to expect to get something of real value for nothing. We are in it for the long term. It costs time, effort and money to do research and verification of the product line we offer. CSSPC believes that it charges a fair price for a great system that should give good performance and reliability for years. (See 'What do YOU get in a CSSPC system?' [Below]).

Support: CSSPC offers technical support, while many companies have outsourced to countries where they speak broken English at best. We are a local U.S.A. based company. We can speak many computer languages and computese with the best, but in fluent U.S. English!

notes:
(**)= CSSPC reserves the right to substitute equivalent or better components due to market availability.
(*1)= For RAID 1 (disk mirroring), RAID 5 (disk stripping) or for larger hard disk capacities, contact CSSPC for pricing and availability.
(*2)= CSSPC recommends upgrading to a higher capacity power supply unit (PSU) if you add multiple internal upgrades such as: two additional hard disks and/or additional DVD writer and one or more hard disks. Also if you are planning to attach multiple external devices simultaneously such as USB devices that do not have their own A/C power cord. Based on internal upgrade options selected which would demand an upgrade to a higher capacity PSU, CSSPC will require you to purchase the upgrade to order that configured system. Contact CSSPC if you have additional requirements for higher PSU needs.
(*3)= This front panel option includes the following additional flash memory formats which may be functional but are not tested or warranted by CSSPC: SM Card, T-Flash, MS Select.0, xD, XD(M)Type, XD(H).

paypal CC GIF
For new buyers, signing up for a PayPal account is optional. This means you can complete your payment first using your credit card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express or Discover) and then decide whether or not to save your information in a PayPal account for future purchases. PayPal automatically encrypts your confidential information in transit from your computer to theirs using the Secure Sockets Layer protocol (SSL) with an encryption key length of 128 bits (the highest level commercially available). Before you even register or log in to the PayPal site, their server checks that you're using an approved browser - one that uses SSL 3.0 or higher. Once your information reaches PayPal, it resides on a server that is heavily guarded both physically and electronically. Their servers sit behind an electronic firewall and are never directly connected to the Internet, so your private information stays private.
