Are you paid to say that.

I must admit - if I need spare parts Scan is the way to go - but who has the best system for money?

You want a total system or parts to build it yourself?

the dual opteron system i worked out, came from scan and was over all cheapest, some parts are more expensive, cheaper than other suppliers, but when it comes down to it, the time you've paid all that postage you're spending about the same or more than buying it all in from the same place

oh and obviously the specialist hardware i require aren't held by ur average run of the mill computer parts supplier

- Hard drive to suit budget
- Nvidia 7800GT PCIe gfx card (maybe a GTX depending on budget, also look at the ATI Radeon X1800XT or X1800XL as alternatives, they all cover a broad range of prices so pick to suit budget)
- A nice case
- Spend about 50 on a 400-500w PSU with a decent brand name
- Whatever else you need

If you need help with specifics just ask. Also, depending on what you feel like spending a GeForce 6800GS PCIe is a huge improvment over a 5900XT and represents about the best value gaming card out there atm. Gl.
