Hi all,

I am looking for a new gaming pc. I have decided against going with the big players (Dell etc) after bad experiences. However I am also cautious about purchasing from one of the smaller companies. Has anybody baught from Dino PC or Cyberpower?

I am interested in the DinoPC i7-Osaurus (click here)

and the Infinity i5 Achilles GT (click here)

The infinity features watercooling, does anybody know at my budget (~£1100) if that really makes much of a perfomance difference?

Would be greatful for any comments you may have, cheers

Cheers, should have found those before I posted.

Also does anybody know if cyberpower supply the OS disc with the PC (not some rubbish restore CD or partition?)

Also is it worth while purchasing with a credit card for extra protection?

thanks

If you want an OEM Win7 DVD with the PC then opt for a Novatech gaming PC plus seperate media.

iRush or iFire is within your budget.

Watercooling makes no difference to overall system performance. Watercooling tends is used when a PC has been heavily overclocked and requires additional cooling, or when the end user wants a quiter system. For the latter to be true, the right watercooling equiment needs to be used - some stuff can be quite noisy.

You've probably ordered it by now, but for future readers it may be useful..

As far as i'm aware, i think they do. However, don't quote me on that, i think i just recall seeing it somewhere.

Also is it worth while purchasing with a credit card for extra protection?

*For a £1100 computer, then i'd say Yes.
