    Just the box please.

    Can anyone recommend a decent supplier who will make a box (Athlon 64, dual core) without trying to bundle a monitor etc with it? I'm after a GOOD supplier, not a local computer shop.

    I have always found www.overclockers.co.uk to be very good for high powered boxes (without monitors). However, I don't know if they are a serious enough supplier for you to be able to deal with.

    Chris,

    I can't say I have had any problems with returning kit to them. I personally have rarely had any problems with the gear I have bought from them (lots and lots over the past five years or so).

    However, a friend of mine's motherboard failed after three months and they replaced it without any difficulty.

    I do understand though that people have many different experiences with customer services....

    @Dos_Box: Try Alienware, Sun or HP. All three of these offer education discounts and will happily sell you an Opteron/Athlon-64 pretty much off the shelf - with or without gubbins.

    www.novatech.com

    Ask for Gary Hogg, and say I, Simon Anderson at The Park High School in Norfolk recommended him.

    He's really good and sorting anything, and customer support is great. I've never had a problem.

    I have now moved to NovaTech as my main supplier for PC's.

    I wish mate. Gary is my account manager. Hopefully you will get a better deal / even better service if you name drop a bit.

    you could give NEC a try, pricing VERY agressively in the UK.

    Try Mark Greenhalgh (Misco) on 0870 725 6982.
