I have been working towards getting this computer for a very long time, having squeezed as much power as I possibly could (for as long as I could) from an old, noisy laptop. It was important to me to get this purchase right first time - both for career and recreational purposes (I'm not financially in a position where I can afford a rig solely for gaming, so this will be used both for work [music production/video editing] and gaming.)

I did exceed my initial budget (my choice, so won't mark UKGC down for that); but that was because I wanted a<br>machine with longevity. I went with an overclockable i7 to easily handle my demands, and also as software/games are likely to become insane in the coming years. It's good to know I have the option to overclock, if necessary. But that's some way into the future and until I find myself requiring more processing power, it's staying at stock settings (and is performing awesomely). I also added an aftermarket heatsink to further lengthen the processor's performance and lifespan. So given these adaptions on budget, for now, I've settled for the integrated graphics. (I customized the Aether i7, which is fairly impressive in itself).

As UKGC themselves state, they're not the 'cheapest' available in the UK - and in my experience, here's why:
- You get what you pay for. All components are of the highest quality, using only reputable brands, and includes all manuals and discs.
- The process of customizing the build was the most comprehensive of all UK online retailers. (I ran the specs I needed through literally all other UK PC build sites, eliminating stores one by one, for one reason or another).

- The machine is well-built and extensively tested before it's delivered, so it's going to work when you get it. No 'hoping' it all works, or having to send it back for any reason.
- The package is delivered under in-transit CCTV, so any problems that may arise in this area are covered.
- They don't fail to arrange a delivery date and then deliver your item unannounced, or leave it in the garden (!?) if you are not home (as I have read in reviews from customers from other competitively priced UK sites).
- Great customer ratings and reviews. I had already decided to go with UKGC, then when they got an Award for Best Custom And Gaming PC Builder in the UK, it just confirmed my gut feeling that I was making the right decision.
- Professional throughout the experience. Customers are kept up to date regularly as to the progress of the build. Also, the Warranty and Aftercare seem to have the customers interests at heart.

So far, the product has lived up to my demanding expectations. I'm very happy with the purchase and would certainly recommend UKGC.
