Sorry, nothing remotely interesting to read here... just a question. I am looking for a new computer, but want to have some choice over the components and peripherals. Companies like Dell and Mesh allow some degree of 'customising' components, but they always come with things I don't want; namely Vista, and average quality monitors (or ones for gaming and movies instead of photo editing). Also when it comes to components they only provide the basic specs and not information on manufacturer and model. Of course the obvious answer here is to build my own... this is something I would mostly be confident doing, as I've upgraded and messed around with various drives and other components, but never installed a CPU before. Even though I am pretty sure I could do it, unfortunately the computer is for someone else and they would prefer that at least the bare bones of the system - the motherboard and CPU - be installed by someone else. So what I'm looking for is a company that either provides the case (with PSU and fans), mainboard and CPU already set up and then leaves the rest to me... ... or a company that builds the whole computer but offers decent choice over components, and does not force me to have either Vista or their choice of monitor. So is there such a company in the UK? It's probably a silly question, but even regular PC companies seem to be in trouble (for example Evesham disappearing) and I can't seem to find companies to fit my requirements, except for ones who specialise in gaming rigs. Am I just looking for a company that doesn't exist? Any experiences or recommendations would be great. Thanks!
