Well - what type of spec are you after? A great deal depends on your personal oppinions - AMD or Intel is the first choice you must make; it will shape most things to follow. Especially the motherboard - unless you have a motherboard you want and therefore the Motherboard will shape the Proccessor.

Power is also a factor - and last but not least; your budget!

No! It is the most natural thing that any person can do! Just you, the Computer, and a Screw Driver - the sounds of the birds, the smell of Anti-Static Bagging, the feel of nice new Computer bits, the taste of a beautiful cup of tea! It is fabulous!

Hi,

I always tend to go down the custom route myself, as then you get a PC that matches your needs exactly. You can tailor every component to your exact needs based on your usage.

However, I have always fancied buying a Dell PC. They do offer a fully customisation service, so you can have exactly what you want if you have the right money. There does seem to be a big difference between there package PC's and those that are heavily customised.

Either way..........you get a custom PC that meets your needs.

Yeah - but the likelyhood is that it will be more expensive than buying from a store. And - generally you can get what you want - it depends what you can get for what price.
