Operating System

Another important choice when choosing your PC. The operating system is the main software loaded on your PC where you can launch games, internet browsers, applications and tools from. We currently supply all current versions of Microsoft Windows at a discounted rate and the majority of our systems are also compatible with other operating systems such as Linux and even MacOS although not formally supported.

If your PC comes with an operating system or you choose one, then we will pre install it free to the first hard disk/SSD, by one of our engineers. We don't stop there, all the updates are installed, a generic admin user profile named "UKGC" is generated, the latest stable drivers are loaded and our engineers tweak a few settings so you get the best out of your machine. Your operating system COA licence key (affixed to the back of the PC) is then supplied with your PC along with a free complementary USB installer should you ever need to reinstall it.

We appreciate you may wish to install your own operating system, so rather than forcing you to pay to have an operating system from us, none of our machines come with an operating system as standard (unless its a prebuilt/next day system) which saves you money and gives you the choice as whether you want a pre-installed operating system or not.

All supplied operating systems from us are the superior 64bit version.

FAQ - Do I need an operating system - In order to get the most out of any modern PC it will need an operating system however, ultimately we cant answer that when asked as we dont know if you already have one or not - you maybe able to reuse your licence from another system, may have access to a discounted version (via your school or employer) or have a mate that can get hold of a iffy copy online (not recommended by the way).
