    Barebones systems

    Can you suggest a few good places to buy a barebones PC that has just the following:

    1. Motherboard, processor and RAM.

    2. Case and PSU.

    3. Fans.

    I do not want to pay for keyboards, Vista, mice etc. since I have all that. Places like Dell and Mesh insist on you paying for an OS even if you don't need one.

    I've been looking at overclockers.co.uk but just wondered who else you might suggest.

    Thanks,

    Jon

    Scan are the obvious ones, the've done them for years. I remember buying a shuttle from Microdirect, still using it today for various 24/7 tasks, highly recommended, very reliable and virtually the same speed as a full size PC. After 4 years it also still looks good!

    I don't mean a small form factor PC, just something which doesn't already come with OS, keyboard etc.
