NEW PC UP TO £2000

  nivlek44 14:28 31 Jan 2007

Any advice on best one to get and who to deal with? I want an all singing all dancing one with best graphics card, great processor, Vista, lots of memory and good after sales support. I've only ever dealt with PC World, Currys, Dell etc. I'm a little worried about spending X amount on a computer from a 'small' specialist firm in case they go bust! Vantage Nemesis looked good until I could not log onto their website and others have cancelled orders, enhancing my point about small firms. Have they gone bust? Evesham and Mesh have their critics. No one has mentioned Chillblast. Any good?

Chillblast are good but for me alienware are the best,
I recently bought a pc from them for gaming and was well impressed with them.

It took next to no time to reach me and looks amazing too.

Try this one.

Once you have selected all the bits and peices for it, it should come to around £2000.

Only problem i had with my pc from them was that the pc was too powerfull for some of my games :)

Have a look at click here great support & customer service. Look at what you want and ring them if you want extras included.

Novatech are one of the best out there.

Do check your specs. vs how much it costs elsewhere. Imo Alienware are overpriced.
I would suggest Evesham, or Mesh. Others talk well of novatech although I don't have experience of them.

Wolfie - what do you mean too fast for your games?

I too think Alienware is the best though I agree they are pricey, you could get the top of the range Novatech PC click here or something like this click here pick your PC customise and buy.
Or perhaps Scan click here

As to Vantage, yes they have gone bust.

Alienware are a rip off unless you're mr money bags and don't care as long as you get the best.

They're charging £2300 for a pc i built for £1250 and i didn't skimp on power/cooling/case etc which i know some people may do on a budget.

If you're experienced with computers or electronics and have a good idea what you want you could always have a go at building one. A little bit of research and reading could save you alot.

Though you wouldn't have any support from a supplier.
