I will always always always advocate building your own PC, never buying pre-made and/or overpriced PC because you save so much money, learn a valuable skill, its easy and fun to do!

You gotta show us the specs if you want an answer to your question, they have a lot of different variations of computers on their website.

I agree it's way cheaper to build but some people aren't very skilled or have the time to build I guess. Also be sure to give us the specs or else we can't really answer your question!

Aha Vegeta, You see I was actually going to build my own, I was all set for it, but, I actually found out that the exact PC specs that I was looking for were cheaper to get pre-built via PC Specialists. So That's why I chose them.
The Specs of the PC that I have brought include a nvidia gtx 1080 (Please don't ask why I didn't get MSI) and i7-7700 KabbyLake. Once it arrives I'll be sure to post it :smile:

Yeah I understand, Ready my reply above, I explained it to him, and again, the specs include a Nvidia gtx 1080 and i7-7700K. (please don't ask why I didn't choose MSI)

It was cheaper to have a third-party service order, assemble, and ship your PC than actually doing all that yourself? That's extremely interesting but granted I have never heard of PCSpecialists.

Yeah, I was too; Of course, I don't know your location but PCSpecialits is apparently a very trusted PC seller in the UK.

I always recommend building yourself. I wemt through a horrible process with iBuyPower and it's for that reason I just have a bad reputation in my head for all companies like that, which is funny because my business did that as well.

I was only about 15 when I ordered that and hadn't ever built my own before, although I was pretty confident I could my parents were concerned I was gonna f*** it up and waste my money so they made me go through this. It took 2 months to get the PC, and when I did, the PCI slot the graphics card was in, was completely ripped out of the mobo. Now my business recycled a lot of old components, which involved me getting bored and smashing mobos with a hammer and chisels at times. Let me tell you, those things don't just come off.

So I go through the RMA process, which took like another 2 months. I send it back, I keep trying to get an update and get the same run around everytime, and eventually I'm like forget it just keep it and refund me and I'll do it myself. Then they wouldnt refund me because it was past the 30 day moneyback guarantee. So finally I get it back and I'm like alright first thing tear this apart and check everything. Well good thing I did because one of the ram sticks was like halfway unplugged and probably wouldve fried that ram slot at least. None of the front panel connectors were connected, or leds, cable management was horrible, etc.

Since then I've been a DIY enthusiast because I don't trust other people haha

Damn, That sounds awful, As I said earlier I bought it from them for a good reason and I was going to build it myself in the first place, I'm worried that because it's a busy time of year they may do something wrong, but if they do I actually don't live too far from the actual business site so I'd just drive up to them; They also have a very good reputation to be fair.
