In-store PC Clinics make help and advice available quickly whilst the Component Centres provide a "one-stop shop" for enthusiasts and system builders.

Kevin Sears, senior category manager at PC World said:

"Networked PC gaming is a global phenomenon and we have seen massive growth in the sales of both PC gaming hardware and peripherals as a result. As the UK’s largest computer specialists we felt that it was paramount that we had a presence at what we feel is the UK’s best electronic games event, M Festival.

"We have worked hard to build a strong Gaming PC range in PC World and I am thrilled that we have recently been able to secure such key brands as Alienware and Commodore to compliment our existing product portfolio.

“M Festival 2008 is a great opportunity for us to not only demonstrate our latest range of Gaming PCs and console-based gaming products, but to also utilise it to network and grow our existing relationships with some of the biggest names in the IT business.”

At M Festival PC World will be displaying their diverse range of gaming hardware to the public and offering advice on buying a games machine, whether for the first or twenty-first time.
