I wonder if they use blue-glow cable ties. :lol: ... and they can't spell. :p


If that price don't include a 24" wide-screen monitor, then it's overpriced. ;)


Sorry, but to me that does seem at least £300 over the top. :)

This is why I struggle to find a decent place for pre-built systems at a good price, chillblast, gladiatorcomputers, komplett all hover around the same price, id rather have a pre-built system as I dont trust myself.

The above doesnt include a monior at all.

Can you suggest anywhere for a resonable price at all ?

Oh, I don't "recommend" these days ... I just pick holes in what some of our members suggest. :D

If you do a search, you should find some interesting suggestions ... even for cyberpowers ... but around the £1000 mark is a better deal. :thumb:

Hang around, someone will suggest something for you. ;)

dont' understand pre built systems, build it yourself and you'll get far better parts for your money.

Sorry don't mean to sound negative but thats just the way I see it.

just a brief example off that spec

Case £50
E6600 with Vista home premium bundle £200
18speed DVD/RW £20
Blue Orb £20
Logitech Keyboard £15
Logitech Mouse £32
Motherboard £135
Memory £110
Surge Protecter £any electrical wholesaler for no more than £5 and certainly more than 4 plug
GPU £350
USB Wireless adapter £10
PSU £65 - although I'd avoid as I know these are going EOL soon

= round about £1000 for 5 mins work from one supplier on the net so only one lot of shipping

Well many people don't think they can, or can't be bothered.

And while its not as difficult as it sounds, you need to have a certain amount of knowledge at least.

Pay your money, get your choice ;)

its just a case of sticking it all together, well atleast until something goes wrong but i guess i've been lucky and haven't had any real problems

there are some good guides on the net that may be worth reading, maybe talk to a local PC shop and see if they'll build it for a small fee and show you at the same time, thats what i did to begin with
