    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Motherboard question

    What monitors were you looking at? I’d suggest at least 1440p if not 1440p ultrawide for a 3070. Both the PCS and Intel drives are perfectly good I wouldn’t be too fussed about which one you have, although I believe the Intel is a lot faster for only £3 more. And nope, I wouldn’t say so. The...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Good Solid Gaming PC Spec Check Required.

    Thanks for all that info! You say you plan to upgrade your monitor later, what do you plan to upgrade to? (1080p 144hz or 1440p 144hz?) And when do you plan to upgrade? If it's in the next 6 months or so, I'd recommend getting the correct card for you new monitor then upgrading the monitor when...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST 3080, Ryzen 5 5600 Build :)

    Those FPS! Exactly, I think it's a bit marmite, but I personally really like it Looks like a sweet monitor! Do you play with the shroud thingy on it? I've always thought they looked a bit odd. I recently went from 1080p 60hz to 1440p 144hz and that was crazy, I can't imagine 4K 😂

    Wow! I'm very jelly. That 3080TI is beefy isn't it 😂 I love the fact they're putting PCS logo's on the Corsair AIO's now! What 4K 144hz monitor didyou go for?

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Corsair 4000D in White on the Configurator!

    Corrrr, what a beaut! And I think you might have been right there, I present the Fractal Design Era ITX... Although the wood looks real on this one 😂 I'll have to slightly disagree with you there. Think I've made it pretty public knowledge I'd happily sell a kidney for a black 4000X filled...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Corsair 4000D in White on the Configurator!

    As I'm sure some of you have already seen, it's an exciting day! We finally have a good white case in the shape of the Corsair 4000D Airflow on the configurator! It's a tad bit more expensive than the black version at £71 instead of £60 but there's finally a white case worth recommending for...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST What happens to all those cardboard boxes after your PC has been delivered

    I love these sorts of videos, very informative too! I remember watching 'How It's Made' when I was younger, couldn't get enough 😂 OH the cardboard box, I still have mine, it's on top of my wardobe at home. I justfind it super useful to have for transport and the like. I'm also a bit of a...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST The Time Has Come

    Monitors: Not too knowledgeable about the UW monitors, although I’m sure AC will be able to vouch for the AOC. If it's anything like my CQ27G2U, I can to 😂 Webcams: I feel like the go to one is the Logitech C920. It’s normally about £75 but I got one last prime day for £30. Loved it ever...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Thoughts on the current setup i ordered? Any changes you recommend?

    With that monitor, you'd be better off with going for something like a 2060, the performance will match a lot better and you won't be bottlenecking your GPU. Taken Stevey's build and done some messing around. I saw you had the TD500, with the GPU adjustment you're able to go back to that Case...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST My First Gaming PC!

    Hi there! When it comes to CPU Choice, AMD are leading in just about every category over Intel these days, so I've gone for an AMD build instead. I'll also preface this by saying I'm not too sure what's needed to run a VM so have focused on the gaming side of things and I'm sure another member...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Finally deciding to upgrade into the high-end, want to make sure this is a good choice

    Thanks for the info! Case wise, If suggesting a spec, I wouldn't go for the P209, it's a very budget case and doesn't have the best airflow. Something like the 4000D is an incredible case for a great price, it's a little light on fans but that can be rectified easily down the road! An important...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Finally deciding to upgrade into the high-end, want to make sure this is a good choice

    Hi there! There's a number of areas where this build could be improved. The main area is CPU choice. Intel is lagging a long way behind these days and there's very little reasons to use them over AMD, who are smashing things right now. If you'd like to add to your research, I'd recommend a read...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Looking for opinions, suggestions and advice on my first PC Build *UPDATED*

    This is what I've come up with. This won't be a truly 'quiet' build as honestly you don't really have the budget with the market the way it is, but I feel this should be perfectly acceptable. 4000D not the quietest, but the more budget 'quiet' cases are pretty oven like. For a gaming load, the...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Looking for opinions, suggestions and advice on my first PC Build *UPDATED*

    Beat me to it! That said, it’s worth mentioning the 3070 is only about £35 more than the 6700XT currently, so it seems like an absolute no brainier to go for the 3070 if you’re able to squeeze it in the budget right now!

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST First ever gaming pc

    That would be a perfectly fine swap to make. In the real world, the 970 is still a balistically fast drive and the difference between them loading into Windows would likely be a matter of seconds. Yes it'd be nice to have a Gen 4 drive on the spec sheet, but the 970 is already a fantastic SSD...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST New Build/Builder PC Spec advise

    This looks like a super solid start I have to say! A couple questions first 1) what’s your budget for the tower? 2) am I right in saying your monitor is a 1440p ultrawide with a 100hz refresh rate?
