Don't worry about messing it up. I understand the thought process, everyone who ever builds a PC was at one point ignorant of its ease and most likely assumed it would be challenging. Nope. Its legitimately easy as cake. PC gamers don't say that the same way car enthusiast might say "oh yeah, repairing a car is easy." Its been so streamlined now that assembling one is like playing this: http://www.bigjigstoys.co.uk/media/catalog/product/cache/1/image/9df78eab33525d08d6e5fb8d27136e95/S/T/ST114_-_Shape_Sorting_Board.jpg. Each part of a computer only fits on one other part, and its just a matter of snapping it into place and plugging in the power chord, theres no soldering wires and welding metal or some crazy **** that might go wrong. Hardest part is trouble shooting a DOA (dead on arrival) part, if you are unlucky and get one, and even that isn't really hard its just kind of annoying.

Doesn't scan.co.uk put together your computer for you for a small fee and all you have to do is pick the parts? I would do that if you really don't want to just buy the parts and put them together yourself.


He wants to max current games and play future games medium to high.

On 700

Please make this happen. I dare you.

My advice take some time to read up on PC's and watch some youtube Vids ask some questions to people who know things and you will learn about how to build a PC. This is how I did it. It does seem complex at first but the deeper you go the easier it gets.

The price difference between building it yourself and a pre-made PC is insane.

Also insane considering how easy it is to put a PC together. it is no joke as easy as putting a lego toy together. Except instead of instructions in the toy, you go to youtube for instructions.

THe only hard part is what parts to pick, and that is not really a big deal, just look at how many parts topics there are here. Alot of people are willing to help you.

Pointing out your stupidity is not trolling

If you really don't want to build yourself then check out pcspecialist.co.uk

Customise the pc how you want it and see how it effects the price as you change the parts. I think overclockers uk also have a very similar service.
