Like the title syas, I will build custom PC's for you. You tell me what specs you want, any specific parts you want to be included in the system, I'll get a price to you withing 48 hours, you decide if you want it doing, send me a check, I'll email confirmation I've recieved it, then I'll start building. If theres a problem or delay, I'll let you know. If you recieve your computer, and within 2 mnths a part is damaged, and you hav'nt upgraded, Overclocked, etc. I will happily replace the part for you, at a discounted price If you don't want a custom system, I will post a catalogue of ones I customised, and you can choose one of them. I'll also do case modding, if you scan a design in, and pay for the materials / equipment. And before anyone says "You can't do that", W1zzard has given permission. So, I'll just wait for a customer. Prices given will include Postage. If you give your Geographical location, I will check how much it is in your currency. I live in England, so if your geographical location is not provided, you'll recieve the price in British Pound Sterling.

NOTE: Orders wil be taken, but I will not be able to start building systems until after Christmas, due to a lack of contingency funds.

Everyone here builds themselves. For the most part. But advertise yourself, and you might pick up a few builds.

You should take the profit from your first sale to get some grammar lessons. That fact alone would make me skeptical at best. That and the customs charges someone faces when getting a high dollar item imported makes your services extremely expensive. You need to warn you potential customers of those import fees. And your warranty is terrible since the worst warranty from the parts makers is a minimum of 1 year.

Good luck.

Shouldnt you really add 'Case' to your list? ;)

But tbh I think you are going about this all wrong! Really you need the people to tell you the exact parts 'they' want then you charge them for the parts and a standard fee on top for labour.

Or

You ask what they want the system for (ie gaming, business etc) and how much their budget is, you then think of the best possible system to build for their needs and price range. Then obviously you charge a fee for labour.

Ive got a challenge for you m8, say I had a budget of £1000, what setup would I be able to buy from you if I said I was into hardcore gaming??? (list all the components please, just case and contents, no monitor etc)

Good system, but I would be worried about 2 things....the motherboard and PSU.

I wouldnt run a high spec system on a generic 380W PSU (its just asking for trouble) and those Intel mobos are not the best (but good for the price I suppose lol)

But apart from that nice one ;) I built a very similar setup for a friend a while back (but at the time all he could afford was a C2D E6300 sadly, but still a very fast PC):

http://forums.techpowerup.com/showthread.php?t=21162

It cost me about £40 to ship it to him and I charged £40 to build it, btw how much do you plan on charging for a build m8?

Cool system there Hookey... anyway, if you were prepared to pay more for the components, I would get you better PSU and an nForce motherboard... but hey, gotta stick to the customers budgets.

OK, I'm going to get a catalogue soon for systems I can build if your not sure what you want, I need somewhere to upload it when I'm done. Any ideas where I can do it?
