    I was going to build a new gaming pc but i don't really have the time so i was thinking about just ordering it custom made. Have any of you guys bought gaming PC's from any sites that you could recommend. I have seen ibuypower.com and few others but was hoping to see if you guys knew of others i should check into. and please let me know of your buying experience too. Thanks:)

    All I would say is :

    1. Try and build it yourself - you know exactly what's in there, and it doesn't take too long

    2. Make sure you know all the parts and check out reviews - one pc I was gonna get had a i5, 8gb ram, a 560ti gpu for £800 but the psu 'blew up' on a review of read.

    Def make time and build it yourself your going to be paying a premium for cheaper parts when you could be putting quality parts in your rig!

    Build one yourself. My friend did it instead of buying, and he said he saved much money.

    Never ever buy a prebuilt computer of any kind. Especially gaming rigs. These things are very personal. They are a work of art. Not only will you be building it to your own specs, but you will also save loads of money.
