Indeed I was lucky enough to build mine just before it went crazy!
Obligatory clichéd PCPartpicker list for comparison

Pretty damn close, which is great for a prebuilt. That £15 change could get you a wireless network card that the PCSpecialist one lacks, and if you opted for a sketchy Windows 10 license for under a tenner on Amazon or eBay that frees up some cash to change the case, storage options etc. But yeah, if you just want your computer to arrive in a box and ready to plug in and play, this is really solid. Heat from me.
i only ever bought one prebuilt pc, was an advent back in the 90's, took it apart and learnt to build my own, theres satisfying feeling of building your own,the exact parts you require and it isnt exactly hard these days with youtube, ive been building for 20yrs plus years, am due for a full pc upgrade as soon as the daft prices subside
Staerted building one over a year ago, then prices went daft, made use of vouchers and got an i5 8400 with 1060 and 8gb for £7oo last month, keeps the kids happy ... meanwhile ... !

I was the same as you in terms of self builds, but I’ve now gone full circle and purchased one of their review builds in Jan. It was £250 more to self build, and every component in it was sound. That and I just can’t be bothered to build my own anymore.

I didn’t buy this particular model, but I was very impressed with the service and the PC in general.

theres nothing wrong with self builds, i just prefer to pick my own parts, and get the satisfaction from self build.

Yep, that’s how i used to feel. The build was the fun bit, especially in the days of jumpers, with your fingers crossed whilst you pushed the power button. . .
Frustrating not to be able to change out the 16GB Corsair VENGEANCE DDR4 2133MHz (2 x 8GB) for 3200MHz, would be so simple for PC Specialist to do that, but at least it's dual channel. I would have liked the option to change out the PSU for a silent RM x series model, say, which PC Specialist offer in the upgrades when selecting upgrades in upgradable models, though could always sell the CORSAIR 450W VS.

I appreciate the aim of whoever built this was to keep the price at sub £1000 and it seems like a good compromise at the price. Have some heat!
