Do you want to buy a pc from a online store or build it yourself?

Well let me tell you, buying from a shop will definitely cost you around £200+ more than if you where to build it yourself. However if you want to buy I would get it from these guys - http://www.pcspecialist.co.uk/

i have looked at pcspecialist,Custom Gaming PCs could you suggest which pc you would choose for up to £1,000

also, could you suggest an alternative custom build for me?

i have a aspire g7200, could i salvage any parts from this pc?
thanks for your help
