    Custom PC's

    hey guys, i was just wondering if some of you could please recomend me some places i could get hold of a custom built PC. the more customable the better. in paticular the abilty to include a high spec graphics card, with the minimum essentials in the machine to run it (so i can take it out later).

    Theres a few decent one's I would consider

    : : : CyberPower PC UK : : : -tonnes of models to choose from
    Gladiator Computers - PC Systems, Components and Software, Manchester, UK. have been known to do some good PC's for the money
    PC specialist
    Mesh

    But to be honest if you want something basic with a high end graphics card the best thing to do is just build it yourself.

    You could do it from scratch or get a barebones..

    You could also buy something like a basic dell and stick the graphics card you want in as long as it has a reasonable PSU..

    These aren't bad straight out of the box.

    Re: Custom PC's

    mike, cheers for the links, i'll take a look - reason why im not building it my self is coz i need to buy it pre-built (i think custom built from a site will count) as i have a 250 quid grant to add to the cost - but i cant use it for parts or upgrades. as i already have a fair enough PC i built recent, im just thinking to take bits here n there n swap (mainly the GPU). as i had to cut a few corners at the time of building.

    so i dont mind chipping in abit more to get something custom built.

    OCUK's most basic gaming PC isn't bad. It's around £600 and has an 8800GT I think
