Well, for the best value for money there is only one option: Build it yourself.

If you are willing to sacrifice a bit of performance and quality, Cyberpower isn't terrible. None of they are really great or anything. Lots of horror stories from all of them. I would definitely just build it yourself. It is VERY simple and we will help you select all the correct parts.

Well Cyberpower is terrible judging from the horror stories I've read on this board. Add to that extremely below average technical support (most of the major publications including Maximum PC and PC Magazine don't give them particularly favorable reviews) and a lot of sub par components they use, I would stay away from them. I think from most of the UK users on this board, I've heard that Novatech can put together your system for you for a small fee, or you could buy all the parts from Scan and various other websites and build the rig yourself.
