Hi,
Mate is looking for a pre-built PC (i've tried convincing him to build his own, doesn't have the time or know-how)

Budget is £1700 ( can over over if it's worth)
Location is UK.
Doesn't need peripherals.
Mainly for gaming.

Please comment any suggestions / questions / advice.

Cheers.

There's no real good option for a pre-built in that price range. Pre-builts are either for if you're on a really tight budget or you've got some serious money to burn. If you go pre-built you will pay more money for fewer options and generally get hosed on technical support. This is what you can get for that price if you do it yourself:

Keep in min d that if you go pre-built, for that kind of money you'll end up with way less of a GPU and CPU combo and most likely get stuck with a generic PSU and RAM that you can't get rid of.
