he's from the uk arn't you!? newegg don't ship to UK . goto www.ebuyer.com -they are good

you'll save quite a bit from buying it from a outlet like pc world.

I'm about to upgrade a pc and build a new home media center and always buy my stuff from there.

how about something like
http://www.ebuyer.com/product/164047...w_order_by=RUF ~ 140 squid

2 x http://www.ebuyer.com/product/129954...roduct_reviews ~ 60 squid

http://www.ebuyer.com/search?page=1&...22&subcat=2789 ~ 50 squid

look through
http://www.ebuyer.com/search?page=1&...cat=23&mfr=143 ~ 15 - ??? squidlings

hard disk - my hitachi 1tb was about 55

gfx - http://www.ebuyer.com/product/146705 or if you want to splash out a bit http://www.ebuyer.com/product/169208 - 80 or 120 squids

psu - you can pick up an extra value, BUT alot of people go on how important it is to have a decent one (i'm not saying true or false), so you might want to get somthing solid like an antec earth watts one

optical: DVD R and DVD RW ~ 8

that's your basic comp. let's see pricing


140 + 60 + 50 + 80 + 55 + 8 + 50* ~ 440

*estimate for a case and psu

you can get a cheaper CPU (amd triple for 105), board ~ 30 squid and use DDR2, where you can get 4gb for under 35, that will knock 80 of build cost.

also maybe an artic cooler for 14 (probably cheaper than that now).

you might be scared of building your first pc or some people might say it's really complicated... it's really not. there is no soldering or anything, just simple plugging a connector into another. it's safe, cheap and easy.

Where is it that you live (Country)? I'm not terribly knowledgeable on stores that ship to Europe, but I'm sure I can do a google search .

Oh, hi . Sorry, my UserCP only keeps updated threads for so long and I'm at work all day :|. I'll google around for a bit.

Here's one right off of the bat: http://www.overclock.co.uk/

I've heard of the name, but never shopped there. So I can't exactly give you any words on credibility or Customer Service.

Also: http://www.microdirect.co.uk/Home/

http://www.zebracomputers.co.uk/

And many more!

hello,
dude its really not that hard to build a computer, took me about a week to learn (i was 12 at the time i first learned i'm 13 now). just do some research on the internet. a buncha guides are available, i can direct you to some if you want. also its a lot cheaper to build one yourself and you can brag about it to people you now . you can find a lot of good computer on ebay for cheap, only issue there is shipping.
