Default Where should I get my Uber PC from?

I wanted to know if any of you guys could help me, I wana spend £2000-3000 on a pre-build gaming PC and saw these.

http://www.monkeyware.co.uk/pages/ga...ubermonkey.php

I think it looks like quite a good PC for the money, was tempted by their mk2 but its a lil bit over budget.

I was thinking about alienware or overclockers too but there not as good price wise?

Any other ideas? Is that a good PC for the money, please help me.

Alienware is ridiculously overpriced. Stop giving bad advice Jman.

Alienware is CRAP. DON'T buy from there. Monarch is very helpful, and everyone agrees, go with them.

Monarch is probably your best bet. It has all of the high points of a custom build, and the ease of a prebuilt! There's really no decision to be made.

Alienware are not crap at all. their quality is good, however their prices are what let them down.
