For that money I'd wait until I have a hundred quid more saved and just get a Mac.

More importantly, it's not a Mac.

Can't help with alternate sites, sorry. Maybe put the money aside and get the lot in one go a couple of months down the line?

Maplins? I can't imagine PC World being worth trying.

Would you have issues with components being set up for different voltages if you get them from overseas?

OK, just wondering if it'd be cheaper to buy from Amerikay, but the parts probably wouldn't be compatible.

Try Overlockers.co.uk. Not sure how they are for shipping to Eire but they're the standard go-to site for building computers/ordering seperately here.

Isn't Xes fairly computer savvy? He'll surely point you in the right direction.

He might do.


Ebuyer? Overclockers as tom said, or Dabs, Scan or Box?
Oh hang on, erm, Pixmania are based in Ireland, they often undercut the RRP on things.
Either way, don't get an AMD graphics card. Get a GTX 560Ti or something similar for your money and have a better card, especially as you are only getting one screen.

Overclockers are more expensive on everything I compared.

Pixmania are a pack of cunts that I refuse to deal with.

It won't be for playing games so I'm not that fussed about GFX to be honest. I'd have to change about processor/motherboard and ram if I change GFX card though (so I understand).


You shouldn't have to. I'm pretty sure AsRock mobos are SLI and Crossfire compatible which means they take either cards.

The GFX card comes with the processor making it much cheaper than buying separate I believe.


If you aren't playing games, why not stick with the onboard graphics?

Make sure you get an Nvidia GPU then, seriously, don't fuck around with those shitty AMDs, especially if you are running Windows 7, they are notorious for cursor artifacts and disappearing cursors.

Nvidia are too expensive when I don't really need that much of a GFX card anyway.

I've decided I'll go with Win 8 as long as I can run it in "classic shell".


Fair enough, your call, but you did ask for ideas and help.
