I am not a Gamer but here are 3 Specialist PC Builders for you to look at.



PC Specialist

All can be customised and advice from each is available via email/phone. Give them an idea of what you would like and your budget.

Others on here (Gamers) should also be able to help.

I can certainly recommend Scan , I have a Scan system , and have bought quite a bit of kit from them . I don't think they are the cheapest , but in my personal experiences with them , the build quality and customer service are second to none . here is a good example of what they can do for you click here Only things I would change for your budget would take the option of the free memory upgrade to the vengeance pro 1866MHz , and maybe see if you could squeeze the extra £28 for the scan FX gtx770 , and as a bonus you get the Samsung 840 evo SSD , I have the 240 Gb model , and it is blisteringly fast ! With regards to the previous post , took a quick look , the PC Specialist system for £1000 looked the best value . Good luck .

Good advice there from Nickf, just one to add. The memory upgrade is a no-brainer, as it is free but, if you had to pay for it, you should be aware that the performance boost it provides, over the standard offering, is going to be too small to notice in everyday use, unless you like running benchmarks.
