Was planning on getting a pc from specialist in the future but thought i would see what people recommenced first (not comfortable building my own nor do i have the time)
 
Okay...Here you go with a couple of suggestions and hopefully others will also jump in and provide some better suggestions and thoughts:

1 - Scan System includes a 9700F which is near the very top for a gaming CPU as you can get, a RTX 2060 Super which is a great Gaming GPU for up to 1440p 2k gaming, a 1TB M.2 SDD and all the other bits with a warranty.

2 - This CyberPower ULTRA 7 XT GAMING PC is on offer at £1269.6 in VAT and again looks very good, in fact very, very good with a Ryzen 3700X and RX 5700XT (1440p 2k gaming) with 16GB DDR4 3000 RAM so a hell of a lot of power for gaming and any productivity tasks you want to throw at it with 8 cores and 16 threads. It has a 3 year warranty though I do not know Cyberpower from a buying perspective or customer service.....with Scan I do...

I would look at the likes of Scan UK and Overclockers who have good support and warranty though this tends to be just the base units, so keyboard, mouse, monitor would be separate. I have used both Scan and Overclockers for too many years to count and have rarely had an issue and even then they have sorted things out very fast.

What type of pre built are you looking for?

Edit, there is also PCSpecialists though I have never used them.

i have all the peripherals i need already. i have looked at overclockers in the past but it seemed over priced to me but i will look again and also check out scan thanks
 
No problems at all...As to cost, it depends on a few things with the likes of Overclockers and Scan. If it is just a straightforward system with the basics that allow for good 1080p gaming and some work...then £699 gets you i5-9400 + RX580 GPU system and then you can add a little more for more memory etc. But you can also very quickly scale up as well...Also both are good in terms of calling and making changes to better suit.

And options at scan with a Ryzen 3600 start at around £769 though option 16GB instead of 8gb...

If you have a budget, then let us know and we can find you some options...

thanks for the reply, im looking for something fairly high end around £1000-£1300, already have a pc from a few years ago but it barely runs most new games and demanding games. I built a few different ones on pc specialist but i dont know if that site is good for the money or if i could get better anywhere else. Up for suggestions :D
