You can try the HP Workstations Z Range. Great computers and up to 3 years support.
Thanks for the recommendations, guys. I'm on the case!
I would vote for DVC as well.

Unfortunately the i7 is already teetering on the edge of being over my budget, so I'm afraid I can't go any higher unless it were utterly essential.
Ok, Aidan, understand that. If you chose the DVC, I think you should go there or give them a call - the they can guide you for sure.
Thanks. I'm certainly impressed with DVC so far. If I do go ahead with the purchase it'll almost certainly be through them. I'm grateful to both you and Alan for suggesting them. Chers.
