“Great choice for custom built PC”

Written on: 27/02/2015 by elJenkins240 (1 review written)

The staff at UK Gaming Computers were extremely helpful in answering all of my questions about the best components for the my custom built PC. Having lots of options to choose from was great but having people who could help me make informed choices was even better. The advice they provided help me to create a PC that matched my needs within my budget. Having now received my new PC I'm very happy with it and would recommend anyone else looking to build a custom PC to check out their services and… Read Full Review

“Worth the wait”

Written on: 21/02/2015 by BlazeWells (1 review written)

I don't have too much experience with buying computers, and I'm not the greatest expert when it comes to specs and so forth. But from selecting a PC, choosing the options to actually waiting, it was all quite fun, and while often I thought "I just can't wait any longer", it's worth it for the saving and getting exactly what you want. After some time it arrived, all intact, started setting up and was ready to play. Everything as expected and running beautifully! Also very quick replies from… Read Full Review

“The Best Custom PC Service Around”

Written on: 13/02/2015 by Star-Hyperion (1 review written)

This Hyperion PC was a replacement for a 6 year old system that was struggling on memory. The site itself is well laid out and very easy to understand, with descriptions of all parts to ensure you can get exactly the right setup for you. All through the build stage UKGC update you on the progress, and delivery by courier was very quick. Upon receiving the machine I had an issue with the display not outputting correctly, but this was swiftly resolved with excellent aftersales support from the… Read Full Review

“UKGC deserves their awards!!! ”

Written on: 13/02/2015 by Day357 (1 review written)

Why I went with UKGC About 2 years ago I decided I wanted to change my computer, which meant that I would need to get rid of my old computer. I find this very wasteful as it was expensive when I bought it. So I started my searched on YouTube, articles, review site, spoke to friends, and IT companies on future proof pc. I concluded that I am still not keen on buying PC online,!!. But all changed when I found UKGAMINGPC online.   I was spoke to them on the phone for about 2 years… Read Full Review

“ Hydros - Water Cooled Gaming PC”

Written on: 11/02/2015 by dominicleeee (1 review written)

Its been yearly a year now since I purchased my rig, and if you'd ask me I couldn't recommend UKGC more. They got my complete order exactly how I requested and the service over the phone when I asked for and updates was second to none. Needless to say my rig is still running to its full potential and have never had an issue. If I could fault one thing though it'd be the monitors, they perform great but as soon as I decided it's time to put them on a dual monitor stand to reveal no mounting… Read Full Review

“over the moon!”

Written on: 06/02/2015 by Jaslene184 (1 review written)

We brought the computer for our son as his old one was very outdated and not working well or fast! The whole experience with UK Gaming computers was great. The website was easy to use and very straightforward for picking what he wanted in his computer. When the computer arrived we initially had a few problems setting it up but after ringing up and someone going through it all with us, it was soon working. We would definitely buy from here again and a big thank you for all the help given. We… Read Full Review

“Custom PC”

Written on: 05/02/2015 by Web1 (1 review written)

The computer is simply perfect, it runs every game on ultra with easily more than 100 fps (even arma 3). The computer makes basically no noise under heavy pressure and with the water cooled cpu i haven't saw the cpu run at a temperature higher than 40 degrees celsius which i find a very low temperature compared to other cpus/coolers that I have used. The pc was completed in the stated time period (3-5 days). Ukgamingcomputers is the best company I have came across for pcs… Read Full Review

“Very professional”

I ordered two gaming boxes from UKGC. The price was very good for the components I got in them. These guys are really pro. Lots of updates while they were sourcing parts, building and testing. All install disks included, lots of little details done well. Plastic folder with all the warranties, user guides etc. for the parts. I would buy from them again… Read Full Review

“Optimum PC”

Written on: 04/02/2015 by Combsfv480 (1 review written)

I was looking for a PC that was purely for gaming. The Blizzard WoW PC was exactly what I was after and with help from the team had a few extras added. The PC is awesome and is great value for money. The team know what they talk about and the service was excellent. Far better than the high street brands by a mile. Recommended. I only wish that I knew of them sooner… Read Full Review

“Overall excellent PC/service. Try to avoid buying on...”

Written on: 03/02/2015 by 499Hurst (1 review written)

When trying to decide between UKGC or Cyber power PC I was quite hesitant. However, I am pleased that I chose UKGC. First of all the the PC has clearly built with care, every detail of my PC is the standard that I expected, from the tidiness of the wires to placements of the parts. Secondly, the service and the staff are top quality. The structure of the company seems to be well organised and dealing with problems is fairly easy with UKGC. All positives being said I still was disappointed when… Read Full Review

“Two break downs, terrible service and attempted rip me off”

Written on: 01/02/2015 by Crumbledoughb (1 review written)

I bought a metis computer that was customised to my needs for Christmas 2012. A few months of running fine and everything going great my PC stopped giving any video input. I contacted the company who in reply told me they couldn't fix it unless I paid and after a long battle had to outsmart them by bringing up sales laws until they admired they would have to fix it free of charge if I took it down and picked it up which I did (4 hour trip I might add) they fixed it fine and just now the exact… Read Full Review

Ukgc's Response to Crumbledoughb's Review

Written on: 02/02/2015

Hi Bryn,

Thanks for your feedback but I am a little disappointed to read that your PC has a similar fault and you believe that it is because of us there is a fault. Your Asus P8B75-M LX motherboard had developed a fault after 4 months use which we diagnosed and repaired without cost within a couple of days (you even thanked us for the fast and efficient repair including the whole process from start to finish) and now believe we didn't do a good job at fixing it - The PC has worked as normal for the last 19 months since the repair - could you please explain why you believe that we "didn't do a good job at fixing it" because clearly we did if it was working when you collected it?

I understand you are frustrated that the PC potentially has the same issue but we don't manufacturer the components so if a component fails you should be venting your frustration towards Asus who manufacturer the component - we simply assemble and test the systems.

It sounds like you are not interested in our help as you have already left a review without contact us prior but if the fault is exactly the same then your motherboard will be under manufacturers warranty (Asus carry a 2-3 year manufacturer warranty as where most other only carry a year) so you can send it to them and they will replace it under manufacturer warranty free of charge.

I would also advise you to ensure that you are running the PC via a surge protector - we did advise this when the PC was first delivered but also reminded you in person when you came to collect the PC after the repair knowing it was a surge that caused the motherboard fault otherwise if the fault will simply reoccur again. We had a very small amount of Asus P8B75-M LX motherboards fail in the time we sold them (less than 0.3% failure rate) so you are either extremely unlucky or have an underlying issue with how your system is receiving power but as we know what the cause of the first fault was, it would be exceedingly likely that you do have an issue with your surge protector or because you haven't got one as advised.

Good luck with the repair and I hope you are up and running as soon as possible.

“Good service”

Written on: 29/01/2015 by yhMcCollum319 (1 review written)

Computer and monitor arrived all well packaged. I was regularly kept up to date with the building process and not left waiting any longer than expected. Once the build and testing was complete I received my complete order the next day. The computer came with all the software installed so was ready to use almost immediately. As for gaming I'm more of a strategy and rpg gamer and it handled all my titles really well. Fps and online gamers might want more of an upgrade but for general gaming it… Read Full Review

“Erebus i7”

Written on: 29/01/2015

I didn't know UKGC a few months ago and I was surprised to see so many good reviews about their service. I checked a bit everywhere on internet and it seemed trustworthy to me. I needed a new computer for working and gaming purposes. I chose an Erebus base and made some upgrades. The process is very easy and you have lots of informations to help you with your choices. Once you order, you have to chose how fast you want UKGC to build your computer. Be aware that's only the time for the build… Read Full Review

“UKGC, you have ruined my life”

Written on: 26/01/2015 by MrAndyBear (1 review written)

UKGC, you have ruined my life. To explain why i must tell you what my life was like before i received my Scout PC. It was a life full of love, laughter, social acceptance and success. My Girlfriend and i would spend evenings cuddled up on the sofa, weekends going for long walks. I was heading for a promotion at work. My friends and i would meet up regularly. oh we were so close back then. But then i ordered the Scout from UKGC. I had the processor overclocked to 4GHz, a GTX 970 video card… Read Full Review
