Estimated Build & Testing Time

We appreciate everyone wants their PC as soon as possible but to ensure your PC is perfect it does take time to build and thoroughly test. Each System we create is subject to this build and test time. As standard it is 5 - 10 Working days (Monday - Friday excluding bank Holidays) with potential days added on (see below).

In short, when you place your order and payment is accepted we firstly allocate your parts. Once allocated and the build time is available, your system is physically built using our strict and through standards.

Once the system is built it is then put into testing where all of the components are stress tested beyond everyday use. Once we know the hardware is as it should be we then set about installing software, drivers, updates and tweaks. The PC can then be optimised and any extras such as an overclock can be tested. This rigorous testing phase typically takes around 1 - 4 working days during a working week but can take longer (see below). Once we are happy that the system is up to scratch we will then email you requesting to book a convenient delivery date.

Please be aware due to the nature of the following components the testing time and thus the whole build time is extended by a certain amount;

16GB RAM + 1 Working Day
32GB RAM + 3 Working days
64GB RAM + 7 Working days
Overclocking + 1 Working Day
Fully Watercooled systems + 1 Working Day

This is because these components simply take longer to thoroughly test and normal testing times are not sufficient. Normally your system is built, tested and ready to ship well within the given time scales.

If you cannot wait to get your hands on your new UK Gaming Computers rig then we have introduced a priority service, super rush service and a pre built range that are ready to ship now.

Super Rush Job

Sometimes there comes a time when you have to have something as quickly as possible. This service involves building and testing a system as quickly as possible making your system the number one priority here at UKGC. We down tools and concentrate on this build ensuring it is finished as quickly as possible. We often use pre tested components to speed up the testing phase considerably meaning you can literally have your very own custom pc within a day or two. You will need to give us a call before ordering this service to discuss what we can do for you and agree a appropriate timescale plus also find out if we currently have any other super rush jobs on as we only accept one of these jobs at a time to ensure the one we do have, is still treated as priority 1. If you don’t contact us prior then we will simply get on with the job as quickly as possible and let you know when it’s finished.

Technical Specifications:
  • Built/tested/shipped as quickly as possible - call us first to discuss your needs
