Where to buy custom built PC from?

  fillythebish 21:34 05 May 2007

Im thinking of PCspecialist right now, i've searched them and not found much on the forums. Anyone had any dealings with them?

Failing them I will probably look to Novatech, PCoption or MESH.

It seems they all have there fair share of bad reviews though.

I would look for one where you get the windows disc with it.

PCSpecialist have limited (poor) case options. If they would get rid of their peculiar fixation with mainly steel cases then they may be in with a chance.

I bought my custom PC from click here

I got an XP Pro CD and a Vista upgrade voucher (the Vista DVD eventually arrived 3 months later). They are however not a GB company and manufacture in Scandanavia.

Novatech though are one of the best companies in the UK to deal with based on my limited experience but have limited options when it comes to customising a new PC.

Had my PC Specialist Computer for 6 months now. Absolutely no problems. If you need to talk to someone, they know what they are talking about and very helpful.

I thought the cases are fine - I don't have a Computer as a fashion statement!!

Thanks for the replies.

I probably will go with PCspecialist. I think they have the best variety of hardware and good prices

I was looking for a custom pc recently, and in the end made a purchase from dinopc.com, I only bought the components and got a £20 discount off the normal pc price, and put it together myself. Fast delivery and all quality branded coomponents, couldn't find cheaper price elsewhere...
