I love the way I spent a grand less then you and can run any game at decent settings, and I can carry mine about wherever I go.

I think the Zoostorm is a bit overpriced though?
I think a phrase about having cakes and subsequent consumption comes to mind.
Surely, considering your apparent knowledge, you must understand you're going to pay a premium for those shorter warranties and cheaper components?
Like many people have suggested, how about chosing one of these websites where they build your PC with exactly what you want in it. You appear to have enough knowledge to know what bits you'll need; they have the experience not to **** it up. And they give you a warranty. And hopefully you'll find a nice trade-off between price and reliability/cover/service.

That comment was in comparison to other prebuilds, not to a custom build.

Nice post though, the suggestions you have seen from people saying that kind of thing was what I wanted.

By overpriced I mean, compared to other pre-builds.

I said in the opening post that I don't need a monitor, and that 24" must be taking up most of that £1899? Thanks though.
It is more expensive due to the better components it has compared to others.

Yeah, the monior will take up a good few quid there.

I can only find find PCs with 1TB for pre-builds. I am not looking at PC World or such places as they're rubbish.

However, the links I posted earlier seem specific to what your after.

Look, you can either buy THIS for £1550, or you can buy all of the components from HERE for £800 and spend 1 hour building it, thats £750 for 1 hour of work.

I have a budget of around £1500-£2000.

I've taken a look at most Dell computers, and rather satisfied with what I can get.

I am NOT wanting to custom build, I've been custom building since I was 13, and in the long run it seems to just be a pain in the ass.

I DON'T WANT ANY INFO ON CUSTOM BUILDS. I DON'T GIVE A **** HOW MUCH BETTER THEY CAN BE.

So yeah, monitor not required. Nothing particular required out of this PC, probably gaming but that's about it.

Only thing I ask is for it to have atleast 2TB of space, 4gig RAM.

Anyone know any good Dell builds or other sites etc? This is the first time I'm purchasing a computer that is not custom built... so I'm rather clueless.

Also I saw the "Ask us" Sticky... but I'm not asking what you think of a build etc... rather asking you for a build itself .

Thanks.

I know this won't help in your search for a high spec gaming PC but if I were you i'd wait until Windows 7 comes out. It looks alot better than Vista.

They are no better than other gaming pcs.. You can get equally good systems elsewhere, you just pay for the name. You may as well just get the same spec from Dell.

There's horror stories for every etailer - it's just the way things are.

I know people who've bought from both and been happy, then again my brother's PC(From Dino) came with a different Mobo/PSU than what we ordered - same quality/price but not what we exactly ordered.

Pcspecialist however are well respected.

Seems quite overpriced for what it's offering, you can customize a Dell XPS 630 to much better that model in my opinion.

Also buying an alienware is just ridiculous - you're paying an extra 20% for the brand.
