Dell are pretty solid for a no fuss, off the shelf, plug it in, good to go deal.

Bit busy just now, but browse their "Desktop / All-in-One" section, can pick up an Alienware for ~1300. A few of them are low-ish on RAM but easy enough to source extra sticks from Or wait for Stabby to give you the scoop :)

I've ordered custom systems from Scan and been happy with them in the past.

I've used Dino pc before and been really happy with the service. As has already been said you'll save some hard earned if you spec it and get someone like Dino to build to your spec. Their site is pretty good for custom builds.

Thanks guys

No, too much time and effort and unknown when speccing my own. Havent the first idea. Not interested. Also, my company is paying. Just want an off the shelf super fast render machine.

Cheers :)

somthing like this (just add your OS from the drop down menu - or add/change any other componants)

Used them for my last 4 setups and they've all be great.

EDIT: You'll want to swap that 2nd Hard drive for a larger WD standard hard disc... did not mean to have two SSDs
