All comments welcome! Please note that my son and I are noobs when it comes to these things. We have two quotes for a custom build from local independent pc specialists. The price is the same, but are they any good and which should we go for? Can't upgrade any parts unless the improvement is the same cost - budget's been maxed! Option 1 - Intel Core i5 3570K; Asus P8Z77-M Motherboard; nVidia GTX 660Ti 2GB Graphics Card; Wireless N 300 PCI Card; CoolerMaster Elite 430 Gaming Case; 8GB DDR3 1600Mhz Corsair RAM; 128GB Crucial M4 Solid State Drive; 1TB SATA III Hard Drive; Samsung DVDRW Optical Drive; Corsair 750W CX Power Supply and either Windows 7 or 8 Home Premium 64Bit. Option 2 - Intel Core i5 3570K; ASRock H77 Pro4-M M-ATX motherboard; 8GB DDR3 1600 MHz Kingston RAM; 3GB ATI Radeon HD7950 graphics card; 1TB SATA III Hard Drive; 120GB SSD (SATA III); Asgard ATX Case; 600W PSU (don't know model); Windows 8 64 Bit; 22xDVD writer (don't know model); wireless LAN (300 Mbps). Oh, the budget is £1,000. Self-build isn't an option - but if there's an enthusiast out there living in the south-west who fancies a little job we're all ears . Or should we look at some of the internet retailers? Much obliged.
