Who/where are you buying this PC from?

Would you be better off buying parts and assembling the PC yourself?

Hi there banthracis, i have looked into the build your own method which would be great as money would be saved. However, i dont really have the time or knowledge to do this. I would be buying the desktop from 'Arbico'.
I forgot to mention the monitor would be - 24 Inch Iiyama PLE2407HDS Widescreen TFT. I would be using Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit.
Im going to go with 6gb of ram and Corsair TX650W Power supply now.
I would be using the desktop for top games aswell as Adobe CS4 and maya so any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advanced :)
