Fast, informative and friendly service - and a sexy beast of a machine. (Totally customised) My thanks to Daman.
I spent a long time researching across the web the costs and options available to me, and I think UKGC offer the best choice. Some components might come in slightly more expensive than if you bought it all yourself and built it, but you are paying for the expertise and speedy build and delivery. (Not to mention how much delivery would mount up if you ordered every separate component).
They also offer to price match, if you can find a system using the same high end components that will match what they are offering - no mean feat :)
I got my Scout with two days to spare before a LAN party, on special speedy build and express delivery. It didn't really get tested to the max because no one else there could compete :)
I have one regret. I wish UKGC had talked me into getting a bigger SSD drive for my OS - I opted for 60Gb based on cost, and I think I'd have done better with a 120Gb, but I'm only half full so far.. so we'll see how long before I have to upgrade.
