    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST You thought spec-ing a PC within budget was hard.....

    Some of you may know that I've had an inkling to get myself a Vinyl setup for a little while. I've been nipping @SpyderTracks ear on more than one occasion and on Monday I finally got the ball rolling properly. I wanted to keep within the realms of sanity budget wise, I had planned a couple of...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Mortal Kombat Series

    Got Mortal Kombat XL as part of my PS subscription. Just started playing it today. Obviously it's an older game (2015ish) but it's absolutely fantastic. I've been completely away from the PvP fighters since Streetfighter on the PS4 and didn't realise just how much they had moved on. I'm really...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Help!! What on earth is this song - Earworm!!

    I was watching a Jayz2Cents vid on youtube and an ad came on. The music instantly struck a chord with me but I had instinctively hit skip just as fast as I could, so I was very limited with my time. I am absolutely positive I know the song, I've most definitely heard it before but the...

    PCSPECIALIST Too good to be true? 4k 144hz £250?

    I'm positive there's going to be some sort of catch here. Whether it be a typo or something like that, I have no idea. It does seem too good to be true. However, if this is above board and you're looking for a monitor..... I would get in quick...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST The Chicken Fiasco!

    Some of you may remember a while back I was asking for some advice on keeping chickens. Well, I got them and they were great little things but it didn't all go according to plan. I found a guy who bred various birds and had a fresh lay of baby chicks on the go. I specifically asked him for hens...

    Missed this when it streamed and only spotted it today. Gave it a watch this eve and thoroughly enjoyed it. Thought it might kill a couple of hours for some, it's good entertainment.

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST PCS - Value for Money?

    I've long believed that PCS offer excellent value for money. With the crazy prices of GPUs at the moment thanks to the lack of availability there is pretty much no such thing right now. I was curious how PCS were fairing though. For a long time I've been contemplating a new rig. I'm just not...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Anyone else holding out for 6000?

    I've been pining for a new system all year. It started off with simply wanting a 3080 and then crept into an entire rebuild. I've been waiting so long for things to calm down that I've literally spent every penny I have on other dross so I'm now not in a position to even consider a new build...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Mathemagicians - Help my brain fog here!

    Ok, I saw an equation on FB that's apparently dividing the world. The world is already split... you either know how to do this stuff.... or you don't, so it's hardly a time to call Ripley's when people disagree. However, I'm disagreeing with myself now as I can't for the life of me rationalise...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST What happened to sociable gaming?

    I've had various ponderings about this for a long time after random frustrations. Many moons ago, and to this day for console gamers, multiplayer was a thing that could be done under the same roof. It was great to have your friends round for a game of FIFA or a battle on Mortal Kombat II...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Intel 11700K Review

    Fair review of the part here. No real surprises for anyone but what's good to see is a refresh of the testing methodology and how that affects the topology. Good viewing for anyone looking to recommend any particular hardware and the reasons why. I don't think I disagreed with a word Steve said...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST I'm not a gamer..... Honest

    I'm sorting out my study and there was a random carousel left in one of the cupboards. I thought I might as well use it for a mini display. I've also put my entire collection into the various wardrobe space. It's quite something to see it all laid out like this. I have multiple versions of each...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST I'm stumped - Folder icon spacing

    I'm not 100% sure what this is down to. I'm actually thinking it might be a product of One Drive, as it's the first time I've actually used it. My personal folder icon spacing is messed up. Now, I know about the Windows Desktop issues from various updates, but it's not that. My desktop is fine...

    We all love discussing and helping with new builds, getting a new system is a very exciting time.... but it's also daunting. We see a ton of the same queries being made along with people going down similar rabbit holes when it comes to making certain choices. Rather than getting fed up and...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Lockdown - What's Worth a Watch?

    So we have he horror thread etc for movies. But I thought I would just start a thread for general watching. What are people into right now? Just thinking that collectively we may come across some hidden gems from each other. Even the most obvious shows/movies to one person may be obscure to...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Petrol Head Heaven

    So I've been watching this right from the VERY beginning. Anyone into engineering or cars or anything in that sort of field will like this I think. I just thought I would post it up for anyone who wants something to view during lockdown, that's a bit different from the norm. Project Binky...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST What's the best Wireless mouse while being fiscally sensible?

    I've been looking around and I can't see past the IronClaw from Corsair. Are there better options? The obvious highlights for it for me are: It's wireless It's polling rate is so high you won't know it's wireless It charges via USB Uses Bluetooth or dongle When the battery runs out, the USB...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST What defines the best GPU? Fastest? Coolest?

    I've been looking around at the various buying options for the 3080. Unsurprisingly the ROG Strix is often up the top of most lists but it got me wondering when comparing the various models. I'm just doing my homework before I decide on which route to go down, reviews aside I like to try and...
