    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Replacing 10yr old desktop - help please ... a bit out of my depth!

    The below is a bit more money, but it's what I would recommend you look to get with your upper budget and uses in mind. This will be a very good performer for the uses you have in mind. It has more power on the CPU and GPU front, while not exceeding what you had initially specced. It has a...

    The monitor is going to be your real limitation as it is very depreciated. I would strongly recommend that you upgrade the monitor. You can get an excellent 1080p monitor, 24", for around £150 just now. I've went for the lower end of what I would recommend below. This will cover all of your...

    I wouldn't worry regardless. If it's there or not it'll not make any odds :)

    Pretty sure. PCS always tend to install an exhaust fan :)

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Replacing 10yr old desktop - help please ... a bit out of my depth!

    Pretty sure you can cover most bases. Few queries though. What monitor are you using? Model number is fine, or resolution and refresh rate. Are you fixed on an internal drive? You could get a USB3.0 external DVD drive to allow you to choose any case, and then simply put it away when you don't...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Some advice for a 4090 build please!

    Some small changes, thankfully no real impact in pricing. The 7950X is a beast, it'll do you absolutely fine. Yes the X3D would net you a bit more but outside of the likes of FS2020 you're not really going to see it on the screen so the 7950X is the safe choice while still being a beast. I...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Is this a good pc?

    The initial link was PCPart picker though. If you want a PCSpecialist build then we can help. Am I right in thinking: £1.4k Budget 1080p gaming, 240hz..... what's the relevance of the 240hz for you? Just making you aware that most people won't see anything over the 120hz mark and anything past...

    Yes, although for the relative difference I would opt for the TUF motherboard which has it built in. It's a little more expensive than an addon card but it's a generally better motherboard and then you don't need any addins. Case CORSAIR 3000D AIRFLOW MID TOWER GAMING CASE Processor (CPU) AMD...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST 4070 Ti Super vs 4080

    Gigabyte are a bit of an unknown for me at the moment. They had fallen away in recent years but their AM5 boards seem to be pretty good. Both options are there for you. I would personally want 6000Mhz of RAM in the system for your uses. My guess is that PCS haven't got a consistent pass rate...

    Below is the build configured with Windows included: We aren't a customer service team with any access to any of the systems so unfortunately you need to follow through with the purchase on your own. You can do this via the link below or you can contact PCS through chat/phone to proceed. Once...

    Just thinking, do you need Windows pre-configured or are you doing this yourself? The build above doesn't have Windows to save on costs.
