Hi,
I am thinking of buying a new computer but i live on the island of jersey, so choice locally is limited so i am going to purchase online...

I have features and specifications which i require from my computer but as you can imagine finding a PC with all of these is near impossible....so does anybody know a site where i can enter certain criteria and it will find suitable or ideal matches for my needs ??

Post links or advice here !

thanks alot everyone !!

Well, it depends on what you are looking for. Dells are usually well reccomended, however, i have had some problemms with them before. It would really help if we knew what you needed.

Dell, Compaq, Gateway and i am sure places like Alienware and others have online configurators.

Monarch Computer and United Micro are both pretty good. Neither one has every product under the sun (but you can pick up the odds and ends from www.newegg.com), their build quality and warranties are just as good if not better than the 'big boys'. I've used both of them before and have had ZERO problems.

B4 buying on-line, I suggest you check here to get user feedbacks on resellers first.

Check out www.cpusolutions.com.
They've been in business 6 years and I stand by them %100.
I get my items in a day or two.
I kind of resell (build PC's for companies and charge them).
Great deals, great prices, great brand names, great products.
Just build a barebone system and go from there.
If you need a modem, add a modem.
If you need a 80GB hard drive, add a 80GB hard drive.
If you need anything, add what you need.

Period point blank....they are a good company and won't rip you off.

Remember to click on Barebones and go from there!

Buy your parts on-line and build your own. Off the shelf stuff like Dell, Compaq, HP, etc, all suck. Very proprietary on the upgrades, and a crap load of bundled software that nobody wants. Customer support is usually someone from India.
Build your own, it's easy, cheaper, and you get what you pay for. Ownership of a quality product is the biggest thing. You can swap out parts as you see fit (you can't really do that with the others).
I HIGHLY recommend newegg.com. They have great prices and VERY good customer service. Free shipping will usually get you your stuff in 2-3 business days.

I believe the Island of Jersey is somewhere around the shores of Britain. I could be mistaken it has happened one or two times in the past!

Oh, I thought you were talking about New Jersey usa, and were tryin to make it sound a little more exotic, "The Island of Jersey" like the island of manhatten, never mind.
