    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST USB ports future proofing etc

    Well the case you have chosen claims to have: 2 x 5.25 Bays, 3 x 3.5 HDD/SSD Bays, and 1 x 2.5 HDD/SSD Bays, so that's plenty for a 3rd SSD/HDD. You can tell what each case has by clicking on the picture of each case in the configurator. And the motherboard has 6 USB3.1 ports at the back (4 are...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST New PC being built now.

    To change between an AMD and Intel you would have to cancel and re-order, you would a different motherboard as well. In general if you are keeping on the same configurator you can amend as long as it's not 'ready for Dispatch', but you Intel and AMD use completely different configurators (the...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST New PC being built now.

    What will you be using the PC for? And what is your budget? 32Gb of RAM is quite a lot unless you have a specific use for it. Also note that a lot of cases will not have enough spaces for all those drives you've specified you're going to add (most don't have space for DVD/CD drives anymore)...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Two monitors on one pc

    Work places tend to not like you adding stuff to their PCs :)

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Why my pc cause texture flickering and pop up?

    This would definitely be useful info, because I know one of the games I play does exactly that, but then its a 15 year old game which still uses DirectX9 so I know it's nothing to do with my machine, its just how it was written (in my game it's to do with the render distance settings - I'm not...

    Another slightly belated 'Happy New Year' from me as well - my excuse is that I spent a lot of yesterday gaming :)

    The case isn't just for looks, the one you've picked won't have great airflow and you may find everything gets very toasty as its not really suitable for high-end components. Also you said it'll be in an enclosed space, how enclosed? If it will only just fit with no space for airflow then that...

    It doesn't really matter now anyways since it now shows as: I suspect there probably was something somewhere about out of stock items and other potential issues

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST change the lock screen

    If you right click on your desktop and choose 'Personalize', it should open the settings windows for you, if you click on the 'Lock Screen' section you can choose whether to use a specific picture or use Windows Spotlight instead. It looks a bit like this: Or are you changing this and it's...

    The Very site claims 'The Stalker ST Gaming PC comes with the ASUS® H310-PLUS Motherboard', so yeah it's definitely been a copy and paste error somewhere as the Stalker ST is a different machine and is an Intel machine. You may have to ring PCS to find out which motherboard it is as I don't see...

    I just use Windows Defender (free with Windows) and it happily lets me install SQL Server without any problems PCS probably just don't know which applications object to which virus-checker, and I suspect the list is quite long for many of them, but yeah you could let PCS know

    Since these forums belong to PCSpecialist who sell custom built PCs and laptops I'm afraid we can't really advise on self-builds or builds from elsewhere - you might find the Toms Hardware site useful though as they are not tied to a specific retailer. One thing I will say though is yes your...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST 1 Long 3 short beeps occasionally on startup?

    Hopefully it is that, but I'd keep an eye on it anyways just in case :) Personally I tend to leave my monitors on standby anyways, so I've never experienced that issue before

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST 1 Long 3 short beeps occasionally on startup?

    I know with my previous machine, I had something very similar, sometimes on boot it was do the beeps and then turn itself off, sometimes it was fine. After checking the motherboard manual I found that it was GPU related, so I contacted PCS, they went through a few checks with me, including...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST GPU Types - What does this spec buy me exactly?

    Also note that PCS are happy to let you install your own stuff in the machine without it voiding your warranty (as long as you don't damage anything in the process). But yeah, if you don't want whatever happens to be on the top of the RTX2080Ti line when you're machine is being built and want...
