I don't want to sound like a dick but it just saddens me that these "premade" builds are still being sold. Not to mention they're selling it as "gaming desktops" - that is just a pure lie, and not to mention a ripoff.

At the end of the day, it's up to you what you do with your money.

*edit*

A quick build I did:

CPU: Intel Core i5-4460 3.20GHz - 154.99
MOBO: MSI Z97-G43 - 74.99
RAM: Kingston HyperX Beast 8GB @ 1600MHz - 52.99
HDD: Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB - 64.99
GPU: MSI GeForce GTX 750Ti Gaming OC 2048MB - 119.99
CASE: Corsair Carbide 200R - 49.99
PSU: Corsair RM Series RM 550 - 85.99

£603.93 inc VAT (that's only 50 more than the premade system but is already a million times better)

As far as I know, OC.co.uk does finance as well but you probably end up paying more in the end. Some say it's worth it.

I may have gone a bit crazy with the RAM and PSU but you should never cheap out on a power supply because it's the most important component in your system.

Why would you call someone an expert just because he gave a simple and basic tutorial on PC's hardware? I am not implying he's not tho.

Quote from wAde on the 7th of May 2015

I'm just flabbergasted by the technical illiteracy of many PC players these days. Most people don't even know that prebuilt computers are shite and wouldn't even know how to build one themselves.

Must be my 10 year old elitistic-autistic feelings kicking out...
