Anyone know of a manufacturer or dealer who have good rigs at low prices?
i use EBUYER for a lot of stuff, however i don't see much that ticks the correct box for me.

Build your own.

that is second option. on occasions its cheaper to buy the unit than buy all the parts.


dont buy pc parts from ebay! as alot of pc companies count your warranty as void as its a marketplace. amazon themselves are ok.

try dabs or scan.
How about this with a beefy graphics card...…at=

If not, have a look at the rest of their range - theres something for every price point really, either built, bundle or build your own.
answer these for more help.

1) price range
2) preferences AMD/INTEL
3) pre built or new build
4) name some games you want to play with settings and resoultions so we know how to build around that
1) 500-600
2) intel i5
3) as said earlier, if theres a deal i will take it.
4) not for me, its for my son and he plays all sorts from fifa to shoot em ups, like COD.

I Previously built about 10 PC's, but none for about 2 years.
i was not sure if Ebuyer are still the leaders in suplying parts for self build.
Scan are good for parts, I've just ordered some from there to build my own
will have a look at scan thanks.
If you don't want to build one, take a look at
I will second ebuyer, just had to send to exchange my corsair psu and they picked it up and sent another one all within 3 days

this was my pick this morning. i think i was a bit light on the PSU, but it had good reviews and i thought it would have enough power. think i need a 600w or would the one i selected be enough?
i was unsure about the graphics card as well, couldn't make my mind up on the higher spec ones. i will certainly take a look at the one DCX selected.

i had thought 4 gig of ram was required as i selected.

thanks for all the advice, i am sitting down with the youth tonight to do a final pick.

what are oppinions on the performance difference between i3 and i5 chips?
lol, on the laptop hard drive.
i knew the graphics card was not the best as well.

i will sit with the youth and have a look at your pick this evening.
what do you think the minimum PSU w should be for a i5 chip running that graphics card?
what do you think of the cases from xcase?
he likes the look of the Hummer case.…htm
thats what he likes lol
i went with one of these for my build, antec 300 do a good job and provide an excellent warrenty service.
my son is a student, is the windows 7 student package £30, just an upgrade, or can he fresh install it?
