Customising a new pc

  _clive_ 19:41 30 Jan 2006

Can anyone recommend a reputable online retailer wher e I can buy a custom pc please.
I envisage spending up to £500.
It will mainly be used for gaming and media playing (primarily music), and for keeping my photograph albums although it will have a small amount of business use.
I would like to be able to select from the retailer which components are installed such as memory and hard disk size etc....and being a tight git (!) I really want value for money.
Many thanks

click here pc option
click here pc specialist

I bought my own gaming computer from pc specialist recently and it is excellent.

I bought a computer for my girlfriends mother of pc option a couple of weeks ago and it is excellent as well.

You will get what your looking for cheaper on pc option but pc specialist has its advantages, i.e you can track your order.

You're not going to get much of a gaming machine for £500 ...
