And not one mention of his epithet.

I hope to cobble together a gaming PC soon. Suddenly this sort of news becomes a lot more interesting to me. =)

check out www.dinopc.co.uk, excellent value and really good service. You can save on delivery charges and an additional 10% if you buy parts separately and pay by BACS.

Until they actually release the alpha/beta, it's still just another hyped up "Fable" or "Spore". Not saying I won't play it when it comes out, but I think they should tone down the hype before they make it a disappointing release.

Yes. I ordered all but Monitor and CPU from them and received the lot 2 days later no problems at all. Definitely recommended. I even fired a few customer service questions at them beforehand, one answered within 20 minutes, the other within 48 hours.

Certainly cheaper than PC specialist. For the record the Laptop I just sold to fund my PC was from PC specialist and it's still going strong after 6-7 years! What I did find is that the options available to you at PC specialist started at much higher specs than dinoPC, so although dinoPC is cheaper you're actually getting less in the first place. The point though is that the option to go lower isnt there with PC specialist. There is a hidden catch though in that if you by a pre-made system from dinoPC they charge you £25 for standard insured delivery, it's not really a catch because they claim to package everything with the utmost care etc etc; But you can avoid this by buying all the parts separately and building it yourself. Delivery costs for parts is based on how many components you're ordering though, it cost me about £10 I think for what I ordered.

There's also a 1-2 week lead time if you want them to build it without paying for a priority build service (much the same as PC specialist)

For the record I ordered:

1 9052 AMD Radeon HD 7770 1GB 98.69
1 4152 Asus P8B75-M LE 54.19
1 7003 22x DVD±RW DL S-ATA 16.19
1 6028 1TB S-ATAIII 6.0Gb/s 64.29
1 17046 Xigmatek Asgard Pro 34.49
1 3015 Xigmatek Loki SD-S963 CPU Cooler 16.99
1 18033 500W Xigmatek PSU 27.59
1 5048 16GB Corsair DDR3 1600mhz Vengeance (2x8GB) 104.39
Total: £422.65 including delivery by courier, arrived via Fedex.

Just been stung by another company for the CPU and Monitor, dirt cheap at £53 for a 22" IPS Samsung Syncmaster and £73 for an Ivy Bridge core i5 3570K. Absolute steal, the monitor retails at £130 and the CPU at about £180. Company has gone out of business after 3 weeks of pissing about. Thankfully they just issued me a refund (with compensation) today, so I can use the money to buy my missing components elsewhere, but it's costing me an additional £80 and my monitor will be second hand.

But anyway, can definitely recommend dinoPC Smile

I have done a build of what I need and dino seems to be almost £100 cheaper for what I wanted. I would rather have it built as finding time to put it together myself is probably not going to happen plus I would probably go wrong somewhere.

My pc is so old now been wanting to get a new one for a while and have been saving alot recently to afford it.
