Buying new computer where's the best place to buy one ?

Hello I am considering buying a new pc

I would like it to be powerful so it can handle gaming

Something along the lines of i7 at least 8gb ram etc

Where is the best place and preferably cheapest place to buy one

I'm not looking to custom build as I have no time for that unfortunately

I was considering getting an alien ware x51

Are these goods computers would anyone recommend?

Please thoughts and advice would be appreciated

Regards Paul

Look at TigerDirect or Newegg, and check the recertified deals also...

Instead of wanting to get a computer for gaming that ''just works'' It would be better if you build your own so you know it will be able to do what you want it to do.

Just my two cents.
And I7 is not needed at all for gaming.
i5 will do, and save you hundreds.

I suppose the cheapest place to get one would be eBay they do some good deals and not second hand either i would avoid PC world and curry's

What type of gaming?

Most sellers will get you a SUPER HAXOR GAYMEN COMPUTER. But they cannot guarantee it will run games how YOU want them to run. This is my number one concern with buying prebuilt ''gaming'' computers.
Not to mention they will pack the computer with leds and useless closed loop water cooling, and an overly fancy case that you do not need to play games.

I guess what I am trying to say is that they will make it look ''cool'' but the look has nothing to do with the actual computer performance.

It is your money of course, and you could go to NCIX and see if they would ship overseas. They sell computers that customers pick the parts for.
