Which company shall i use?
I will be using my own monitor, and it's generally going to be for photo editing, and the occasional gaming. Just stuck on which to order from - what are your opinions?

That's the problem with asking a question like yours.

You may get responses from people who have ordered from one of the companies or the other, and they'll express their opinions, based on their own experience. Nobody can compare both companies unless he/she has bought from both. In the end it's your decision, but let's see what happens by way of responses.

I have purchased from PC Specialist before. The computer worked well straight out of the box and was connected to a new networked group which I had to setup without and problems.

The only comment I would make was on the plasticky look and feel of the front of the case. However, that was over 5 years back and the computer is still working perfectly. Various bits and pieces have been upgraded, DVD writer for CD writer, more memory, better graphics card, but the heart of the computer is still pounding merrily away.

Thats brilliant, thank you so much :)
as ill be ordering the Antec 900, i don't think, (well hopefully), i won't get that plasticky look.
Anyway, thank you very much again :)
