Did you just ignore what I wrote in my reply? they are built and tested here in the uk, by uk employees, no offence but you live in America so why / how would you know in-depth information about a UK company?

Company's here that use methods like you outlined either do not survive or are avoided like the plague and everyone knows who they are, not to mention I can phone up and request to chat to the guys actually doing the overclock.

Thank you for the good feedback, short, honest and to the point

Lol @ everyone yelling "don't go pre-built"

Let him do what he wants to do...who cares if he builds it or not. Some of those pre-built places actually offer better deals than you could get off of newegg.

Only its wrong.
i5 2500k will outperform the i3 540 in any and every cpu intensive application (such as almost every MMO). Plus when you downgrade it to htpc use you can utilize integrated graphics and keep take your video card with you to the next build should you choose.

i3 is just a bad choice, as is prebuilt

Also not true, there was thread on here the other day, 2 Rigs EXACTLY the same. One from IBuyPower, the other hand built from Newegg. The IBP was about $200 cheaper than the rig from the egg. Stop spreading misinformation.

Thanks

By the way just the cpu, mobo, ram and cooler come "pre-build"

I am putting the mobo in the case myself, connecting the case wire, fans, g-card, HDD and connecting it up to the PSU and installing the OS.

And even if the whole system was pre build who cares? If someone wants to pay the premium of £50-70 for someone else to put the components in why shouldn't they, its their money that they earned, not yours.

So now we assume the exception is the rule rather than the rule is the rule? And since when did NewEgg have the best prices? Do you even know how most computer shops work? Geez are u kidding me? I'll wait til I see a breakdown with complete pricing before I believe that they AREN'T MAKING MONEY off him. Seriously? I know what ur saying but its just an exception to a rule that extends through our entire market. Like luxury items cost more than bargain items. Same concept. Blow a tranny in ur car. In the shop its costs like 3 grand to fix, but the parts are like $700. Its how service companies make money. Period. Game Over.

I may not be friendly, but I'm right. And that is far more helpful than friendliness to those without such an ego. Yes I have one too. Accept it. Move on.
