I’ve just ordered a whole bunch of parts to provide substantial upgrades – I’d happily buy from PCS again were it not for the fact they don’t supply some of the parts I want, and I can’t bear the thought of losing my PC for a few days.

I’ve toyed with the idea of upgrading the GPU’s but haven’t been able to justify performance vs. cost. Plus, everything still runs on high/max settings so far…

As for the prices not being shown in the component menu, i questioned this when i was speccing my PC. The answer they gave although not a complete quote was:

“We do not carry large quantities of stock so that we are able to pass on any hardware discounts that might occure, due to this the prices of the components change on a weekly basis and therefore there are no prices on the components list.”

Something to that effect.. Which i find really good as they pass the discounts onot the customers. For example whent he i7 950 came down in price by almost £100 they had minimul stock and was therefore able to purchase additional stock at the reduced cost and passed this on to the consumer.
