barebones systems

I am looking for a bundle for friend of mine - basically a new motherboard, processor, RAM and case. Got a hard disk, optical drives, software etc.

I've looked at Novatech and am very pleased with previous Novatech experiences - just wondering if there are any others out there providing similar bundles.

I really don't want to go down the build-it-myself route.

Any thoughts? Thanks as alwasys, Dio

Had your exact problem recently, replacing a 'budget' and long obsolete PC from Novatech.

Like you I have always had excellent support from Novatech but this time went to a local shop that I with others, have come to trust.

OK the items have a small mark-up, but there is NO CARRIAGE charge, alternative choice, guaranteed matching, and good support if things don't go as planned. They do repair or sort problems for the helpless and consquently are able to offer components of proved and reliable quality.

Diemmess - certainly an option but I am in south London and there are a lot of "fly by night" operators here! Certainly none that I know personally who have been here any length of time.

Aria seem to be offering a good deal on an AMD 3200

put SYR-DIY-VEN into their search.

TeaBee - certainly an option that I will take a look at.

We do "bundles" but that is exactly what it is.

You get the components you want but you have to put them together yourself.

email or give us a ring. Let's see if we can help.

pj123 - exactly what I don't want to do! sorry

But that's what "bundles" are. A lot of components supplied to you to put together yourself. We will put them together for you (at a cost around £8) and test them to make sure they work. That's why I said email us or give us ring.

OK - that's where I was not clear with my terminology - what I wanted was what Novatech care calling "barebones" - ie the components I mentioned above, all installed and working ok.

Diodorus Siculus,
used this company myself, and found them to be very reliable and punctual.
