On the custom built side of things, Chillblast - The UK's most awarded Custom PC builder - Cheap PCs - Gaming PCs - Workstations are certainly worth checking out. I got my PC from these guys a little while back. Great machine, good price and the service was pretty good to boot.

What a rip off at that price the 740m is mediocre at best, my friend bought one a while back now with a 740m and it struggles to play Rust anything over Simple Graphics, at 1440x900!

Something like this will be good and it's so worth the extra few hundred!
