Hi everyone. I'm looking for advice or suggestions on a good custom PC builder in Canada (so I don't have to pay massive shipping fees from a US place). In previous years, I was happy to build my PC myself, but where I am right now I don't have access to any testbeds or places I could use to test faulty components. If I build it properly, push the power button and nothing happens, I'd be right some screwed. So, as much as it shames me, this time around I just want to have the thing built and tested before I get my hands on it so I don't have to deal with any of that stuff.

Does anyone have any first hand experience with buying a custom gaming PC from a Canadian builder? I'm looking at Extreme PC (http://www.extreme-pc.ca) right now.

Thanks in advance for any advice!

Here you go sir: http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/

Unless you mean a prebuilt computer from an OEM.

Thanks for the reply, and yeah I don't think I did a very good job explaining what I was trying to do. My bad!
I'm looking for a place that will build and test and ship a PC based on the parts I select, not just somewhere to buy the compenents a put it together myself. Most of the places I see advertised in magazines like Maximum PC and PC Gamer are all for boutique builders in the US, and the shipping costs to Canada are massive.

I'm hoping to find a place in my country that does the same thing, and has a good reputation for quality and service.

Of course you could build it yourself and in the unlikely event it didn't work hire someone to get it working. (CL Canada?)
