Sale ends today so you could be blindly rushing into a purchase.

If you have never put together your own pc before don't worry you can shop around for the parts you desire purchase them and have a genuine shop put it together for you ..

You will get alot further purchasing putting it together or having someone qaulified you trust to do it and you might even save a few bucks good luck and im sure other posters will feel the same way
I agree with Solarstarshines, 3 years ago I bought a pre-built HP and got more hardware value for the money than now.
I just built myself my first custom computer not having prior knowledge but thanks to the diversity of the members of this forum I was able to do research by searching other threads such as Overclocking and Case Mods
to find information on new hardware etc. then using google to find the best price, specifications.
Also what I like about this forum is that members are willing to give sound advice on the hardware selection of a proposed build and guide a first-timer through the steps involved on building their first computer if necessary or if you choose a shop to build it for you than other members may have recommendations whether the shop is reputable or not.
