Recommendations for Custom PC Builders, please.

  ade.h 21:35 28 Feb 2005

I have just been asked by a friend to recommend a good specialist PC builder who can build a bespoke machine with fairly high-end spec. His budget is around £1600 to £1900 (lucky chappie!) It needs to be an internet-based company as he lives out in the sticks. He knows enough about PCs to be choosy about the spec, but would rather not build his own. However, as a committed self-builder, I had no suggestions for him.

Have any of you used custom builders that you would be happy to recommend?

Thanks Polo. I'll have a look, though I haven't heard of that company.

Any personal experiences or recommendations?

The PC Specialist is actually US based. It would need to be UK based, for the obvious support implications.

Thanks for that. I've heard of them but didn't know much about them at all. I think they'll go on the shortlist.

They should have nice Pc's, have you seen their prices!! I had two quotes from them just for a Base Unit, the 1st quote was for £2075, and the 2nd for £1385 including I years business warranty !

Needless to say I have not ordered one.
