    new pc mag called Custom PC hit the shelves recently...

    looks very promising for PC DIY enthusiasts and gaers...chock full of drooling h/w reviews/advice/games

    reasonably priced at 3.50 squids too (though no disc with it yet)

    :smashin:

    I like the idea of no disc:smashin: I and a cupboard filled with them that I have never used I only keep hold just in case I need to look up an old game and see what it is like. I have not seen it but I will look out for it.
    Hope it is still available next week I have just got back from the shops.

    yea , no disc is good , for current PC mags I end up paying £2 extra for the 'pleasure' of chucking the discs in the bin :D

    I agree, if you have broadband you can d/l all those demos easily and for free. Good magazine though, I bought it a few weeks ago. Very interesting and useful for PC DIY enthusiasts like me. :D

    Yes I forgot to get a copy at weekend and went to 6 newsagents to get issue one and all had issue 2 on display I suppose it is just as well if I got one and it was OK and so was issue to I would start collecting them where as I will only pick up copies with articles that interest me now.
    I also notice PCW is Novembers issue is out. I think most mags that come out at the end of the month have advance dates of about 2 months. I suppose if they had only Octobers date on then in October mags with November came out, people going for the most up-to-date mag would go for them.

    I think there is a good chance you can get it from the publishers
