I have seen a ibuypower pc and a cyberpower pc come across my personal bench a couple of times. Both are fine, neither keep drivers on their site always link away to the manufacturer sites. This is not something I like on a personal level, I buy it from you so you should have the drivers. Do yourself a favor and image the computer prior to putting it in production so that you have a clean install to go back to if something goes awry. I personally have never seen or heard of pcspecialist.

You can purchase ibuypower or cyberpower from amazon.co.uk, they may not be exactly tailored to your wants/needs through amazon.

I'd suggest you pick out the parts and put them together yourself. Or most companies here who sell parts also include assembly (for a price).

For 2k you can get a beast of a machine already while 2k pre-build may come as lacking sometimes.

I just finished my second build for

Even though you seem set on buying a pre-built PC, I'd still recommend going the custom route since you'll be able to get a lot more for your money.

Us here are more than happy to step you though anything you need help with and/or troubleshoot issues that arise.

And of course, we'll all definitively recommend you good components on your build. Putting the pieces together takes 10 minutes, but picking the parts can take hours. We're here to help. :)

Take a look at http://www.novatech.co.uk/pc/gaming/, they are a family run business that has grown greatly over the last few years due to the quality of their service. I would pick a PC you like and give them a call and they can advise you on the components and if you want to swap as you may like a better GPU etc, then its not a problem as there systems are custom built and tested before they ship them.

www.dinopc.co.uk I got mine from there, you can customise every part with no incompatibilities - Comes properly cable managed and built perfect.

edit: seems novatech is quite a bit cheaper

With any PC I would call the vendor. The sales people at Novatech are well known for being helpful. With that one I would think about swapping the 2 SSD's for a larger single one, doubt it will make a huge difference in performance. Also think about that CPU, the i7 3770k would perform just as we'll in a gaming rig and save you the
