PC Specialist is my choice. I love this company and they get good reviews. UK company. They specialise in customising pcs/laptops but here https://www.pcspecialist.co.uk/reviews/ they have fixed specifications at a fixed and cheap price. The Vanquish DS Red is my pick at £999.

It's still 999 for me? You have to click order now, not configure. You can check the specs and stuff when you click order now. You can add warranty by calling them up btw. Which is the vibox? I seem to be blind sorry

Better to build it yourself, it will take you an hour oe two (even if you never have built one) and you will get a better result.

It LOOKS really good aesthetically but would prefer an i5 processor and a better graphics card for this price range. Wouldn't want a unknown branded 600w psu with this set up either. Maybe this and pay a little more for 750w psu. Stock cooler ok unless you intend overclocking alot.

(My freshtech suggestion has been deleted by Mod? ( i5 4690k and zotac GTX 780 and corsair psu)

I'd 2nd that about the psu and graphics. Go for an intel i5 instead, most games don't use more that 4 cores and they're give higher fps. Just installed an fx8350 with an H80 and it runs hot, idles about 34 degrees and about 47 degrees under full load which is hot for stock speeds. 8GB is plenty enough ram for gaming.
#11
best to build it yourself, it'll be much better and cheaper then buying press built PCs. However if you do wish to order a pre built then please make sure the PSU installed isn't a rubbish low end one, that's what companies normally do. A gaming PCs PSU wattage is around 600+
#12
Agree with kester76 8gb Ram plenty for gaming to keep price down.
#13
cheers guys.

if i build my own wheres the best place to go?
#14
Firstly I would say it isn't ALWAYS cheaper to build your own. In fact it can be cheaper to buy ready made if you are prepared to not have your ideal specification (case etc). I bought a PC from freshtech as it was cheaper than building my own and just asked for a psu upgrade for another £24. You can add extras like fans coolers later if you want. However if you do build your own buy parts from merchant that have good returns policies. Alot of people buy from Amazon for that reason (or OCUK). Dabs are good too. Many on here say avoid Aria. When choosing parts make sure you think of future proofing too (do you want to overclock sli or upgrade graphics card etc) and buy a psu capable of running it. Get a decent processor and a case that has good cooling features. You will regret it otherwise.

Right, I've decided to build one myself and I'm buying the components from amazon (have vouchers) . Does this sound okay?

EVGA Nvidia GeForce GTX 770 Superclocked 2GB GDDR5 Graphics Card (PCI Express 3.0, HDMI, DVI-I, DVI-D, Display Port, 256-bit, NVIDIA 3D Vision-Ready)
Gigabyte Z97-HD3 Intel LGA1150 Z97 ATX Motherboard (4x DDR3, 4x USB3.0, 10x USB2.0, GBE, LAN, HDMI, DVI-I, DSUB)
Intel i5 4690 Quad Core CPU (3.50GHz, 6MB Cache, 84W, Graphics, Turbo Boost Technology 2.0, Socket 1150)
WD 1 TB 3.5-inch Internal Hard Drive - Black
HyperX 120GB SATA3 3K 2.5-inch Gaming SSD Drive
Corsair CP-9020054-UK RM Series RM650 80 Plus Gold 650W ATX/EPS Fully Modular Power Supply Unit

Do I need a cpu fan?
#16
You will get a stock fan with the i5 but u could buy a better one if u wanted.

So you definitely don't intend over clocking? You want the 4690k processor really for overclocking. If building from scratch you could choose a cooler but not essential unless over clocking. I assume you will add Ram DVD drive WiFi card case ... When choosing cooler consider case you are getting as some restrict the type you can have particularly height and cooler also may cover Ram slots if wide. Alot swear by the Hyper Evo 212 but there are plenty to choose from. I've got a budget zalman cooler which is fine (had to be shorter than the 212 to fit in case) http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B0073QBIO6/ref=pe_385721_51767431_TE_dp_1
Edit: Reviews of mother board not great and mention cooler obstructing issue

I might want to overclock it later on. What about this one intel i54670k, its a K processor so can be overclocked and its cheaper then 4690k.

That's a better idea. If you intend over clocking best fit cooler now to save taking the motherboard out later but make sure you buy one that will be fit. :)
