Hi, I've not been on the PCs gaming scene for a few years now so I'm bait out of touch. I had a quote for a build from www.box.co.uk. I'll attach the quote I had from them. The figures to the side is the price I found the parts online for. I'd just like to know if you lot think it's a decent deal or if I should build one myself and what sort of system I could end up with.

Thanks

Scott

This build is powerful, good looking and of extremely high quality. What more to say.

That RAM I provided is only for temporary usage. This year G-Skill is gonna launch TridentZ LED get that kit the build will look awesome.

Please don't recommend Kinguin.

OP Buying from kinguin is not a great idea.
 


I have been using Windows 10 from Kinguin since last 1.7Years and never faced problem using it. I get all updates from Microsoft time to time.

But that is not it.

Lat month I was trying to sign my digital signature on-to documents over Internet Explorer using e-Token but it was not working. Tried every thing. Then I contacted Microsoft Live support for help. They took control over my Windows and changed some settings in Java and IE and got it to work.

To provide that support they had to have my PC activated on their server. If it was not activated on their server or if it was not legit then Microsoft wouldn't have helped me.

That is good enough reason for me to trust Kinguin and recommend to others.

There are hardly any case where Windows activation did not work or caused any problem(me or my friends who got Keys from Kinguin never faced any problem). In case like that Kinguin provides Kinguin Buyer's Protection(which I always recommend to buy to be on safe side) kicks in. Kinguin is also providing support through live chat which is easy and fast to access. Kinguin will replace the Key and run you through activation process.
 


Often they are resold from stolen credit card purchases and may get blocked. Or they are resold partner or technet licenses.

If they were completely legitimate they would not need a buyer protection program.

Please do not recommend them again.

Just because it has worked for you so far doesn't make it a good/reccomended option. For example some people get away with using extremely poor power supplies but that doesn't make them a good reccomendation for every person they others that end up with a fried system. Buying from gray market key sites is like playing russian roulette.
