Getting a Gaming PC
I am going to get a gaming PC but I was woundering if any one could reconmend a good PC because I am not the best at this sort of thing (my price range is about £800 - I know it won't get the best gaming PC but it should get me an ok one).

However please don't tell me to bulid one myself as I have aksed other people on other sites and that is the main reponce I get, and I don't want to do that as I would have no idea what I am doing and known me I'd mess it up.

RE: Getting a Gaming PC
I can tell you to buy a gaming PC but £800 you'll get a machine that will run games at mid-low settings at most.
I can't recommend anything. Don't get a mac, don't get a Custom Dell, don't get a custom HP, never get an Alien Ware.
For £800 you won't get anything.
There's a reason you should build one.

Do you not know anyone that can help build one for you? You request the parts, but they build it for you?

As BumblebeeCody said - for £800, you're gonna have to self build (which is quite fun if you know what you're doing Smile )

Do any shops build them for you or any website that build it for you?

I know this might be asking to much but if some one could bulid the PC on this site and then send me the link of the bulit PC (because I don't know what parts are good or bad) (i'm not asking for you to littrly bulid it just if some one could do it on this site because the site will do it for me).

RE: Getting a Gaming PC
Some shops may build them for you but they'll almost always charge a fee for the build.

Often, so long as you know that all the components are compatible, you can find some real good guides online to help you out.
You could always build and then go to a shop if something doesn't seem to be working.

The best case scenario will always be to have a techy friend that knows how to do this Cool

This is a very good site. They build custom pcs for a good price. I also suggest buying a good cheap pc replacing the video graphic card, upping the memory, etc. from a shop.

Not even lying, I watched those videos WHILE I was building my computer, and it works perfectly.
Even was able to overclock it. Big Grin
