    I know this might sound daft, but is there any way to detect the RAM in the system, and change OS accordingly? For example, if I select a 2GB configuration on say, the Antec 300 case, the OS is still listed as 32-bit. Might be worth a look, since 64-bit Vista has a driver headache sometimes. Still, maybe I'm not sure. Perhaps a 32-bit option, with a not eattached saying "Warning: If you've ordered 4GB of RAM, go for the 64-bit option, because if you don't, you won't be able to use all of it."

    Also, am I the only one who's a little concerned that you have to order a case, with its own pre-selected motherboard? Or things like not being able to get a Core i7 in an Antec Three Hundred, say?

    EDIT: I think it'd also be quite difficult to get CPU and GPU cooling of an i7-975 Extreme and 2 GTX295 cards in an Antec 902. ;)

    I'm thinking that they are tying the case to the mobo for simplicity's sake, but it really does limit your options too much.

    Simplicity? Wouldn't it be more simple to start off picking out the socket/motherboard first, then the case? My example of no i7s in an Antec 300 is fine, but what about someone who wanted an MSI K9A2 Platinum in an Antec 1200/TJ07 for Folding? Maybe it's just me, but isn't picking the case before (or perhaps in spite of) the CPU/motherboard putting the cart before the horse?

    This is all true, although we have tried it the other way around and this led to many more compatibility issues. Although I will be adding as many cases as I can to each option for example you will be able to get a Antec 300 case for a core i7 system I just haven't duplicated to many yet because I want to make sure all the bugs are worked out of each one first.

    Suppose I want a sound card like Asus Xonar or a Logitech.
    Could that be arranged?

    Just having a look on your site, just one small thing that needs to be altered.
    In your 'About Us' page, it's tiny tiny issues that bug me, Just as an example:
    You can see the Full Stop is between Application and We, but there's no space between the stop and We, then there is a space between Eversham and the comma, and the same again after Worcestershire. Just need to sort those out, and that bit looks ok.

    Second thing that caught my eye was a lack of being able to contact you, granted the Contact Us link does direct you to an email facility, but i think maybe you could add some information just explaining that you don't have a telephone line for what ever reason, etc, KustomPCs only communicate through e-mail, and they state this in there contact page, so i think it would be worth your while to do the same.

    Third thing, this is just an idea, but if you have some hardware, maybe link it to a Bit-tech review:thumb:

    On that note, i wish you all the best.

    Sam

    The about us page could do with a bit more information and could probably be worded better, especially the last part. There are also a number of full stops and commas etc. with spaces where there shouldn't be as pointed out by samkiller.

    Linking certain pieces of hardware to reviews also sounds like a good idea.

    There's a mistake under the keyboard drivers, the logitech section says it links to the microsoft website. Also it might look better if you didn't repeat the same wording again and again.

    There are some mistakes in the terms and conditions, noticed under the privacy policy no spaces and some out of place words.

    This wording also seems a little odd under your intel water cooled pc list: "Our gaming computers take advantage of the fastest graphics and chipsets to blister through the latest games." How do you "blister" through games?

    Will look for any other obvious mistakes later.

    Meeeh! Don't launch yet, much still to be done, change Home/Office to Workstation and create a new Home/Office one with low power PCs. And the enthusiast/standard setting still needs work

    The "Launch" discount seems to work a bit too well! I got £247.34 discount on a £360 budget computer!

    Ooh, bet his terms and conditions haven't been written up properly yet... I'm buying 10 of these! /sarcasm

    EDIT: The TJ07, with everything pimped out to "I like Apple's pricing policy" levels (ie as expensive as the bad-boy gets) costs just over £4500:

    Subtotal £ 3,929.96
    Discount (Launch) -£ 480.00
    Tax £ 589.52

    Grand Total £ 4,039.48

    I don't even think that scales between £250 off a £360 machine, to £480 off a £4500 machine... something's going wrong...

    DOUBLE EDIT: It costs about £15 more to get 32-bit Vista HP with the Intel budget system than it does to get 64-bit Vista HP... Is this a pricing boo-boo, because I didn't think 32-bit was more expensive.

    Ah, bugger, he's clued up on contract law. Still, put in an order for 6, see if he notices... "Ooh, £450 order for a Coolermaster cheapy... Transfer funds... ARGH!"

    Moral of the story: Intent is displayed through actions, not words. Also, check the quantity box before taking someone's money.

    I would just like to point out that I didn't actually order anything.... :p

    I did find some more problems though.... AMD systems list 3 different options of DDR3, all of which are "3Gb", yet have a huge price difference.

    No, I'm sure that Mrs Will Antony Leather lives at your address and uses your bank details, and your email address... Coincidentally, if you'd had an order for 700 of those bad boys from someone who appears to be me, it's not. Honest!
