Dont get one from a shop, build it, it works out much cheaper.

if you dont fancy building one, let me know and i'll build you one and ship it to you (or you can collect it).

I totally agree. Building a pc is a lot of fun and it's easy! I recommend it

lol, I'm a little closer to Leicestershire than you...

A little under 15miles due north of him actually, so yeah I can tell you PC shops in Derby, Nottingham and Loughborough if you want to source the parts locally, but they aren't the cheapest and they don't have great ranges. If you want the best parts and the best prices you got to buy from places like:

www.overclock.co.uk
www.scan.co.uk
www.cpucity.co.uk
www.novatech.co.uk

These are all places I have dealt with and have found them to be excellent.

Definetley build yourself you can get a great rig with £800...

AMD 64 3200 Skt 754 - £130
DFI Lanprty nf3 250Gb - £65
Crucial Ballistix 2x512 PC3200 - £150
xFx 6800 GT - £280
DVD-RW - £50
Tagan 480W PSU - £70
Decent Case - £50 - £80

Total - £825 (Thats with £80 case)

If you shop around you can get this sort of setup for just under £800. This sort of setup will overclock nicley and fly through games.

Plus with the xFx you get some free games I think DooM 3 and Farcry so that saves you £60.

Save £20 on that by getting a Hiper TypeR for £50 instead of the Tagan.

Mate, Tagans are German engineering. Can't get much better than that. I see your China made (dunno if thats true) Hyperpoo PSU going splat in the near future..muahaha

Hmm...you do realise that Germans are some of the best engineers in the world...take a look at their cars...

I wouldnt trust anything electrical made in Britain we suck at electronics and employ cheapo chavs.
