I'm kinda new here so sorry if this has been asked before :tazz:

Can someone point me to a site where you can custom build a PC and have it put together and sent to you?
I have found a couple sites but they are VERY limited in hardware options.

These options would be nice:

case.....................One with easy access since I am always tinkering.
power supply......Not sure about this one, anybody have any advice?
liquid cooled and/or several good fans
AMD 4800 option to hopefully cut down on compile time :)
M.Board...............Upgradable
mem.....................2x512
video.....................Something not to flashy but up to date (128Mb)
modem.................Wouldn't it be nice if they offered a non-usb external modem instead of a winmodem
HD/HDs'...............Two 39G Raptor 10k would work nicely
zip..........................Any
dvd........................Not sony
cdrw......................Not sony
floppy...................Any
and the option to choose not to have windows installed ....I want all zeros for a nice clean slackware install.

Is this too much to ask of one website :)

Thanks in advance guys

no newegg doesnt have prebuilt custom pc's that you can even customise yourself then they put it together for you.

He wanted custom built and have them put together then send it to him.

Newegg doesnt do this.

Newegg is great for buying and building a pc with all seperate parts then you put it all together when you recieve it.

Not as far as i know, they could probably but i think it is illegal and the warranties would be voided, its also prohibitivley expensive to ship things like PC hardware half way across the planet, plenty of good european sites about alot of the time they work out cheaper than the US the only thing that makes US components cheaper sometimes is the exchange rate but the euro dollar rate isnt great so stick with europe places.

I've used www.monarch.com to build a system and it worked great. They have LOTS of options for different equipment. When I'm ready for 64bit processing, I'll buy my mobo, cpu, and ram and they'll burn it in for you and make sure it works before they ship.
