I customized a pc with the following spec but i want to know if that spec is worth £672 + £25 for postage. If there is any cheaper pc with similar spec then please let me know.


CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition


CPU Cooler: Thermaltake Frio


Operating System: No Operating System - I will install my own


Motherboard: Asus M4A87TD USB3


Memory: 8GB DDR3 1333mhz (2x 4GB)


Hard Drives: 1TB S-ATAII 3.0Gb/s


Optical Drive: 22x DVD±RW DL S-ATA


Graphics card: NEW! NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Ti 1GB


Sound card: Onboard 7.1 Audio


Internet: Wireless 802.11N 300Mbps MIMO PCI card


Case: Zalman Z9 Plus


PSU: 650W Corsair TX Ultra-Quiet

Reconfigure Gallant AMD 955

Personally I'd go for something half the price that will give you about 10% less power, hardly noticable!

Ain't got time to go looking/linking. I'd get standard pc and upgrage psu/gfx card,

Build you own would be my advice. More for you money and it's really not hard to do it... I did it oO

Thats what one of my mate told me but i have never built a pc myself so i don't want to screw anything up while building the pc.

Wait 3 weeks to see if Bulldozer is awesome, it prob won't be, get a sandybridge 2500k. I specced one vaguely the other week that I was going to build and it was around £500. Scan had an interesting one on their today only page today.

For about the price you will pay there I got:

i5 2500k
Gigabyte P67A UD4 B3
Corsair XMS3 Classic 4GB 1600Mhz
WD Caviar Black 1TB
HD 6850 GPU
Fractal Design R3
Sony DVDdrive
Coolermaster Hyper 212+
Some Arctic Silver TP
