Gaming PC for about £1000

Found 15th Feb 2008
Can anyone help I am looking for a gaming machine for about 1k without monitor . I was going to go with Mesh but thankfully I googled and found out about their horrendous customer service. Then thought about Dell but their machines (XPS 720) seem a wee bit steep. Please help I am really stuck.
PS Don't want to build one myself as I struggle with a lightbulb

Thanks very much in advance

Umm 1k will get you some machine indeed, but realistically you can buy the components for about 600quid for a good system, get somebody else to put them together.

If you absolutely must purchase it complete, i have heard alienware ( alienware.co.uk/mai…spx ) are a good company, although i have had no dealings with them myself.

Hope this helps just a little
Best thing anybody can suggest to you is to get someone build one. Buy the bits yourself from decent suppliers on the web or see if you can ebay it cheaper. If your looking foe personal help to do this for products maybe i could point you in a good direction

try and find all this for under 1000 this is retail price from Overclockers £1137

Once you have picked parts you can change them for anyting else on the site. They basically charge £35 to put it together if you're not happy doing it yourself.
Thanks everyone for your help. Particularly Bigfoot. The spec you listed looks great - but the problem is I built my own last time and it just never ran properly and was stupidly loud. Could you suggest someone that if I bought a similar kit from overclockers that would put it together for me? I am in Gloucestershire.

Thanks again all
like the guy said above. get one from Dino pc :P
