I have a desktop PC about 2 years old running windows 8.

I want to update motherboard/CPU/HD.

Do not want a new PC, but want to know in the Chch area who you recommend for upgrades ?

We're not Christchurch based but we offer very competitive pricing on CPU/motherboard/RAM combos including the option for pre-installation. Free freight nationwide too!

I used dragon pc / dragon computer once they were ok. but don't ask them what you need, you need to tell them what you want.

or you can try shipping back and forth to computerlounge ...

If you are looking for parts to order and install youself I would go with they are based in Christchurch.

If you are looking to get someone to get the parts and do the upgrade for you. I do this for myself when I have to so I'm unsure of which stores are good in Christchurch, but if you a near to Kaiapoi I would recommend either Worlds Best PCs or The Troubleshooters Ltd.
