Since 1996 I've built my own PC's. Even though this can be quite satisfying saying "I built that", they're nearly always a pain in the bottom somewhere down the line. My current PC was built 5 years ago in a HUGE Thermaltake case but is really showing its age and I haven't got the time, patience or iclination to build another. I'd like to buy an "off-the-shelf" solution but keep seeing negatives.
Dell - Non-standard and difficult to upgrade (i.e. small PSU's)
Mesh - The deals look great, some even get awards but there are plenty of Mesh horror stories that are putting me off
Evesham - Got my mum one 2 years ago, great PC but company is virtually bust
OcUK - Some great spec base units but I don't want to give my money to a bunch of brown shirts
PC World / Dixons etc - Er ... I'm not that desperate!
So can anyone recommend a trustworthy, reliable PC retailer that could furnish me with a new PC for a budget of about £1,000?
Thanks for reading
