Ah hello.

I am looking for a new desktop PC that I can customize to my required specification (eg not a package deal from someone like DELL).  I am not very experienced with hardware so hopefully someone can tell me a good place where I can "build my own" as it were.  Please take a look at one site I have found: http://www.lowcostpcs.co.uk/.  This allows one to choose a base unit then add on the required RAM, graphics card, monitor etc etc.  I would like some more similar sites to this, in the UK, that people know of.

Points split between all giving viable options.

TIA

http://www.cyberpowersystem.co.uk/ but this may not be the budget system your title suggests.

TBH there are so many providers in the UK doing this that you are spoilt for choice
Googling for "built to order PC" provided about a dozen well known companies from the PC mags and about the same in local shops.
