Would having someone build a desktop pc (monitor, keyboard, mouse not needed also I have genuine windows7 discs)be cheaper than buying a new one with same/similar specs from a computer shop or business or online.

Try using H.P. or Daddies,they help make most things palatable.

Also bear in mind you may have problems with Windows as it is invariably a single use licence.

Derek you can buy them on line with out an operating system.
Personally i would buy off the shelf as your going to pay for someone's time at the end of the day.

No operating system 150 Click me

They come under Bare Bone Systems, but some come with Operating Systems too. The one in the link has a hard drive but they can come with out so be aware.

Hope that helps.

Zoostorm machines are made in Warrington if i remember correctly.



This one has the USB 3 connections you were needing a while back.
Its more of eveything not just the USB 3 connections but 250 no operating system.

Hi Derekdwc, looks like an intresting hobby. Most modern mid-range ready bought pc's would most probably be able to cope with what you appear to be doing. I would probably recommend possibly doubling up on any ram installed as default and if you intend to store the images on your pc then think about either getting one with a large hard drive or have a second one installed just for storing the images. If vanmamone, or anyone else, builds a pc for you then they would no doubt install descent spec memory items for you. Like i mentioned earlier, you may have to factor in another copy of Windows if you intend using the internet as 'home' versions of windows are usually single use affairs.
