Alot of the "custom" "companies" are cowboys that will use the cheapest crap they can or set parts that they got cheap by bulk ordering allowing them to make a bigger margin.

I think scan and overclockers offer similar service to CCL I just normally recommend CCL as I use them for parts and the service is good.

You could purchase the parts and build it yourself, would save you a lot of money in the long run and all parts these days come with their own independant warranty.

A few retails that I use are :

Overclockers UK
Ebay (Don't knock this one, have found some of the best deals here, even on new parts with warranties)

What I do when im building someone a computer is create an excel spreadsheet with their parts listed, then go to all of these retailers and copy over the prices.

Usually end up saving around 10% - 15% then if I were to purchase all from one retailer.

Building your own system is getting pretty trivial these days, you can always post any questions you have on here and get good advice. There's really very little than go wrong.
