Custom made 'gaming' computer at a sensible price
Member Name: owlsnest
Advantages: I got the exact specification I wanted at a sensible price
Disadvantages: None apart from waiting for the computer to be built
I was looking for a mid-range gaming computer at a sensible price for my computer mad son!
I found that well known manufacturers were charging very high prices for the spec I was looking for! I then looked at the cost of building it myself and found that it didn't cost all that much less than one built to my own spec with pcspecialist!
Designing the computer was simple and the system immediately checked that all system items were compatible. I then purchased the computer using the 'finance'option, this was very simple and completed very quickly.
The pcspecialist order processing system was superb as you could always see what stage it was at and I even got an e-mail whenever it moved to the next stage of the build process. Overall the build process was quite quick but I had a few days delay because graphics card was out of stock. Once this came in the build was quickly completed, tested and quality assured before shipment.
The computer came well packaged and in prime condition. There was a slight delay in the delivery process as it was shipped on a Friday so it did not arrive until Monday because Saturday delivery was not an option this gave me a frustrated son for 48 hours until it arrived!
My son is absolutely delighted with the computer, which has the latest 6 core processor, and speeds through all the applications that he attempts.
I would fully recommend pcspecialist and will no longer go to the 'big' manufacturers for ex0pensive mschines that are far inferior.
Summary: An excellent machine at a superb price from a company that I will be using again!
