“My old Asus P2B/ATI combo was in need of honourable retirement and I required a company that could tailor my PC barebones requirements knowledgeably and at a competitive price. Those companies able to provide such a tailor-made system appear much fewer in number than five years ago, and many of them now only allow you to purchase from within their restricted list of components. Fortunately I was able to find Oxfordpc which priced competitively and provided a flexible, knowledgeable, prompt and personalised service.
I ended up with the system below, incorporating some sensible and relevant changes suggested by James.
However, what also tests a supplier is his attitude to the customer when things go wrong.
My system failed after a couple of weeks due to an inherent undocumented hardware design fault. Oxfordpc(James) throughout provided same or next day responses to my emails, helping to quickly identify and replace the component causing the problem.
Full marks in all areas.
