Has anyone bought a Pc system from
Seen a couple of their pc's for approx £800-900.
They are all overclocked ect, is this a good idea.
Looking to spend £900 max on a decent gamming system.
Any ideas

but overclockers are a well known company with a good reputation.

If you're looking at just buying a base system then I recently read a very good review of the Chillblast Sniper. It's very well balanced for gaming.

The CPU is not up there with the E6800 but it's certainly good enough.

the ultima oc 8800gts looks good as it has the 640 memory version. the core 2 duo is well known for its overclock ability and could go higher if you wanted.

So far so good with this system.
Ordered on Monday , was with me on Wednesday.
Overclockers have done a good job.
One question, how can I check what the processor has been overclocked to.
Also the memory has also been overclocked, how can I check this.
