    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Checking on cooling and ease of RGB config

    There’s the G7 Neo and G4 Neo as well. G7 is 4k165hz and G4 is 1080p240hz. But 100% agree, there are lots of resolutions on the market but a far smaller selection suited for gaming 🙂

    Looking at his link, it does look like 4K Ultrawide is a thing. Monitor linked is a 27inch 4K Monitor stretched to a 16:9 resolution. It is only 60hz though, so not intended for gaming. The new Samsung G7 Neo might be an option for you, with a 32 inch 4K QLED panel, but I would hold judgment...

    Apologies, I got distracted after the initial post. Build from @sck451 is great though, makes the most of your budget. Upgrading to the 5700X CPU would be ideal but as Fortnite isn’t massively demanding sticking with the 5600X should be fine as well.

    Hi there, The spec isn't ideal I'm afraid, it's got a weak motherboard, RAM, cooler and PSU among other areas. I know that we can spec you something better. To help us spec something more appropriate please could you let us know your budget, and the monitor you are pairing this with (make and...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Gaming build request

    Yep, GPU prices are finally falling which is great to see. There might well be cheaper options elsewhere. What is great about PCS is that they have an open box policy: you are able to open up your PC and swap out components without affecting your warranty. The GPU is one of the easiest...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Time for an upgrade?

    Hi there, Great to see that you’ve got 10 years of value from your current PCS system! It really goes to show that if you spend the time to spec it right you will see those benefits for years to come. If your current system is still performing well I would definitely recommend holding out a few...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Advice for PC build (RTX 3080/Ryzen 9 5900x)

    A lot of good things right in this build, it looks like you’ve done your research, but there are still a few areas I would change. Before we go into them, please can you let us know your budget and use case, and add the configuration link so we can more easily make edits, and then we can see...

    Hi there, This is a decent attempt, but is a little unbalanced in a few areas. With this sort of budget, I would definitely ask if you’re happy to wait a few months? We’re getting new generations of CPUs and GPUs later in the year which are going to be big improvements over the current...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Please can this spec be checked (I have just posted but this spec is for my girlfriend)

    Good call. I was leaning towards the 5700X but saw it was more expensive than the 5800X. The price saved on the mobo is substantial though!

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Please can this spec be checked (I have just posted but this spec is for my girlfriend)

    You're slightly underspending in some areas so unfortunately we can't quite keep it down to the original amount, but this will be a nicely balanced system. Case LIAN LI LANCOOL 215 GAMING CASE I know the Spectrum has nice aesthetics, but the Lian Li case is far better for airflow. With a case...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST is this a good gaming build or should i change some stuff?

    Just to clarify, are you looking for PC and monitor for £2000, or £2300 for both? Your original spec comes in at 1709, but it is a little unbalanced and I would definitely recommend some changes. Please could you confirm the above so I know what budget I'm working with :)

    Hi Steve, Is this already ordered? There are quite a few areas that I wouldn’t recommend. If you’re happy with your build I wish you all the best, but if you’d like some advice please could you let us your budget and use case, and we can try and spec something more appropriate out for you.

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST 4K-RTX 3080 Non-competitive Gaming Setup

    Pushing the boat out a little, but in my opinion you just can’t get a well balanced 4K gaming PC for £2k without cutting some corners. You’ve obviously done a lot of research which is great to see, but some areas are still a little undercooked. Case COOLERMASTER MASTERBOX TD500 MESH ARGB GAMING...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST streaming/gaming setup

    So “longevity” is a bit of a touchier subject, as we are getting new CPU and GPU releases later this year, which will beat out anything I spec for you today. But if you don’t want to wait another 3-4 months (which I can fully respect) the build doesn’t need much changed. To handle 4K, and more...

    Power Supply CORSAIR 1000W RMx SERIES™ MODULAR 80 PLUS GOLD, ULTRA QUIET While overspecced for your current needs this PSU should cover you for the lifetime of the build. Future GPU generations have been confirmed to be very power hungry, so this extra headroom will be useful in accommodating a...
