I've had countless Makes and models from manufacturer's such as DELL, Alienware(Aurora and AREA-51 models) HP (by the way, I HATE HP) SONY(VAIO series)Compaq, even Emachines.
Nothing stands up to your own custom built computer, ever since I started making my own systems, I have never had a problem.

Personally I would suggest buying all the parts you want and either putting it together yourself or have someone else assemble it.

I still haven't answered your question though, how rude of me.
take a look at these budget systems.

It is good; but sometimes you can get a Computer from a Store Cheaper on some kind of offer. The trick is to look around.

I wish they would just stick to Printers if you ask me.

They tell you that from Advent, Fujitsu and Gateway, those of course being the only makes I have brought from with any form of knowledge of Computers.

If there is a good offer from a make, and its cheaper than building it yourself; I will always get the pre-made one and suffer the original problems of resetting it and whiping all the crap they put on there.

9600 its become a 9800 Pro, Price: $650

Yeah, but you live in Scotland - where nothing is local. Here, in England, Local Shops are cheaper.
