I shopped around quite a few different sites while looking for a new gaming pc. There's a lot of good ones out there, but for my particular needs UKGC ended up having the best choice in upgrades and sidegrades for the system that I wanted to own.

I started with the "basic" Achilles i5 model, and was able to change the case, mobo, cooling, memory etc. to the components that I really wanted. I didn't feel like anything that I chose was a compromise.

After ordering, UKGC kept me up to date with a stream of e-mails telling me how my build was coming along. The delivery was a week later than the stated 5-10 working days, but with the adjustments I made to the basic build, and it being close to Christmas I can forgive that. You can pay more for a priority build if you so wish.

On delivery the box was intact, with no wet or torn areas, and was suitably marked as being very fragile. There was a pouch that contained manuals for a lot of the components (case, mobo, fans) along with detailed instructions from UKGC about how to get your pc up and running. Very important to read these, you don't want to start your pc while it still has protective padding inside the case!

It started perfectly and I set about installing my usual programs and games. It runs very quietly for such a beast, even when running modern games on ultra. I've played games like Watch Dogs 2 (free with the 1070) and Rise of the Tomb Raider so far, and have been impressed with the performace that the i5 and 1070 put out.

I've only had the pc for a week, but so far I've had no issues. UKGC offer a 6 year warranty as standard, but you have to place the supplied warranty sticker over the side panel join, and keep it intact, to keep the warranty going. We'll see how that goes, as I've always cleaned my pc with the panels off before. The UKCG site does offer advice for de-dusting your pc without removing the panel though.

Overall I'm very happy with my pc and would happily recommend UKGC to anyone looking for a tasty prebuilt gaming rig.
