    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST New PC can't connect to internet

    The PC I ordered from PCSpecialist arrived this evening, and after setting it up it says it can't connect to the Internet. The PC came with Windows preinstalled and with the following wireless card: WIRELESS INTEL® Wi-Fi 6 AX200 2,400Mbps/5GHz, 300Mbps/2.4GHz PCI-E CARD + BT 5.0 I screwed the...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST RTX 3080

    Of course I can get a refund but it's a bit late now, I made my bet on PCS at launch day, even with their total lack of transparency I expect I will still eventually receive what I paid for earlier than if I made a brand new order elsewhere now. I'd certainly think twice before purchasing...

    And apologies if I'm coming across as aggressive. I was ok with the wait, I know there are shortages and I'd been ignoring the incorrect emails they've been sending me for weeks. Today was the first time I actually contacted PCS about it and am just annoyed at how dismissive they were of a...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST RTX 3080

    I read your post. They don't have to give out actual numbers if it's an NDA that's preventing them from providing reasonable customer service. They could say I'm 20% down the queue of people who ordered on launch day, and they've whittled it down by 10% in the time since then, so I could make my...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST RTX 3080

    Yeah it feels like people are trying to make excuses for pretty poor information coming out of PCS. I keep getting emails every few days saying build will start a couple of days from then. This is never remotely true and if anything I'm starting to wonder if it's deliberate false information to...

    Is there a reason for including both the 2TB and 500GB SSDs? Should I be using one for OS and one for applications? I noticed that switching from 3200MHz to 3600Mhz RAM (4x8 rather than 2x16) would actually be cheaper. Would that not be better?

    You might be right, but there's only a couple of hundred difference, and the 3080 is due to be available a month sooner than the 3070, which makes a difference when I've got no PC at all right now.

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST PC Build Advice

    Thanks for the advice. I will probably go for a 3080 over a 3070, for future proofing. A high spec monitor is something I can definitely consider buying later, but I'd prefer not to be changing out the graphics card myself any time soon.

    Looking to purchase a PC once the new GPUs are come available, having only had a Macbook for many years. Mainly pushed by Flight Sim 2020, but I'd also like to use it for general gaming. I would also be using it for software development. I have a pair of Dell 1440p u2713hm which are excellent...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 Series!

    Alternatively I'd be willing to purchase a PC in advance with no GPU that you certified as guaranteed 3080 ready (in terms of power supply / pci slots / space / cooling capacity etc), then source the GPU when they're available.

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 Series!

    I have the same question. If I can't order a PC with a new GPU until the release date, and there's a few weeks lead time on building the PC, does that mean it's not possible to get one delivered on / close to release date? Could we build a PC with no graphics card and ask for it to be built and...
