    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Vinyl - Share Your Acquisitions!

    I don't have OCD but that left hand side of the centre is messing with my brain.

    I have no idea how you ended up on a HEDT X299 chipset from those guides :p

    You're absolutely in the right place and it's good that you've came to the forum before pressing the buy button as you would be surprised at the amount of people who don't, and end up down similar rabbit holes. If you get some free time, have a look through the following...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Entry level VR for Sim Racing

    I wasn't disagreeing with that part of the statement, it was justifying the assertion with the comparison to the 1660Ti that I wouldn't want people thinking would lead to a positive experience. Making that comparison as an assertion, for me, reduced the credibility of your opinion on the...

    Cracking system but that CPU & GPU selection is wild to pair with such a setup. It's like trying to power a Fiat 500 with an ICBM powerplant.

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Entry level VR for Sim Racing

    It should be absolutely fine, certainly from an entry level standpoint. I can't agree with the above from @Les Whyte though, not in generic terms. I'm sure there is truth to their perceived experience but unfortunately, with VR, the experience is varied depending on your tolerance to framerate...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Ryzen master, feel like I've made a mistake

    As suggested by @Martinr36, there are a few eyebrows to be raised at the selection choices. Unfortunately it's not an easy fix as it's the motherboard selection that's giving me the fear so it would be a return of the system for refund to put it right. The rest of the spec is pretty decent with...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST New Desktop PC came today

    I actually think the Define is smaller than you would expect. I've had bigger cases. The Antec one that I had was way bigger than the define :D

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

    I don't know if I would trust the PCS 200 for the 5800X. Perhaps for the 5700X. The 5800X is actually the hottest chip in the AMD lineup. It needs maximum cools :D

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Checking on cooling and ease of RGB config

    The more drives you have the more lanes you have. You want to keep the OS lane as clear as you can, so it's best to only put the OS & regular use programs on the primary drive. Limiting the size of the primary drive just promotes good house keeping. If you're aware that you have a threshold of...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST High-end gaming PC build advice

    Samsung G9 would be a good shout I think.

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST 1440p gaming spec

    No issues with the GPU & the Monitor. That's just their way of trying to coerce you into going with their own brand :D

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST 1440p gaming spec

    I've changed things up a little bit to what I would go for with gaming in mind. With the cooler, I would opt for the H115i over the H100i, if it fits the case OK. The 6700XT is a fair bit more than the 3060Ti with not much difference in performance, so I would save the dosh here. The next jump...

    As suggested, the case is a massive splurge. With the 5000X being out of stock it probably is the nicest though. If you're happy with the outlay on it then there's nothing wrong with it, it's a cracking bit of kit. Just pricey. Similar thoughts as above really. I think there could be some merit...
