Here in the UK there are plenty of shops that sell computers & roughly a handful of specialist hardware stores
PC World, Currys, Dixons etc etc = mainstream shops will always stock & sell items that cater towards the general market which includes idots - thats why they can sell their services such as pc installation & general maintenace etc etc.
yoyotech, SCAN, Novatech etc etc = more specialised hardware so stock more hardware thats geared towards the enthusiast. maybe not as average user friendly as pc world but there usually are some fairly experienced tech heads that are shop assistants that will help you with your decisions.
If you can fork out £300-400 on something without looking at what your buying then you deserve whats coming.
