    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Bannerlord in one week!

    Hello all, long time no post (about 3 years, sorry lol). Just here to remind you that Bannerlord is releasing on the 31st. It's the long-awaited sequel to Mount and Blade: Warband. It is releasing in early access despite the 8-year long development time but it appears to me pretty much complete...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Help me pick a PC

    My current one (in my signature) is still working fine but it is 3 and a half years old now and it might be time to retire it as a spare and upgrade. Plus at this age you never know when they could decide to drop dead on you and I don't want that to happen the day Bannerlord releases after I...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Does PCspecialist create a user password for the PC?

    Guys, the frustration is over 9000. I'm ready to throw my PC through the window. Today I managed to pick up a virus - the first virus I've had in about 10 years. It keeps randomly redirecting my browser to various websites whenever I click on anything on the internet, like an article for a news...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Having more problems

    I made the other thread, where my PC was freezing up solid at random (usually when turned on and as soon as the desktop loads, before I even start doing anything) but it only happened three or four times, then for 3 days everything was totally fine, so I chalked it up to just some freak error...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST What happened? (small problem I had)

    Howdy all. Got my new PC a couple of days ago (specs in sig). Been using it since it arrived, playing games and such, no problems. Today I turned it on, everything loaded up fine as usual. I went to Google and tried to order a takeaway from just eat.co.uk. The website was taking forever to load...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST New PC arrived :)

    Sorry to disappoint but there are no pictures yet. I got rid of my smartphone a while ago (people kept ringing me) so I have no camera, but tomorrow I will borrow my sister's phone and upload some. Although if you're really desperate to see it you can Google the name of the case, and inside it...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST New PC arrived today - help needed (can't connect monitor)

    Hello all, my new PC came today and as I was setting it up I found to my horror that there's no way to connect my monitor to the graphics card. The monitor cable is too small for the connector on the graphics card and there was no adaptor in my welcome pack like there has been in my other...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Need some case advice

    I just ordered a PC which is still in the processing phase - nothing extreme, i7 processor, 16GB RAM, 6GB GTX 1060, nothing extreme, nothing overclocked. I kind of fell in love with the CORSAIR CARBIDE SERIES™ AIR 540 GAMING CASE, it's just so sexy. But it's way overkill for my components and I...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST What changes could/should I make here?

    So I'm treating myself to a new PC and I quite like the look of https://www.pcspecialist.co.uk/view/Vortex-1250-Gaming-PC/ this one. I've made a few changes so far: *Motherboard downgraded slightly to ASUS Z170-E *Ram upgraded slightly to 16GB 2666MHz *Changed processor cooling to Noctua...

Here's what I have so far, would appreciate any feedback on any changes you think I ought to make. Budget was roughly £1,000, could go to £1,100 at a push. Case -...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Thoughts on Vortex 1250?

    Hello all! It's getting to that time of year again where I start getting the urge to buy myself a fancy new gaming PC and an awesome game or two to play on Christmas day. The Vortex 1250 caught my eye. It's better than my current PC in pretty much every way, the price is in my "I can stretch to...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Removing a graphics card (noob alert)

    Hi all, sorry if this is in the wrong section, feel free to move it if it is :yes: Unfortunately my graphics card has recently died just under a year since I bought my PC. I paid the extra for 1-year warranty which runs out on the 5th of this month (3 days from now). First of all for a few days...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST My headset sounds crap (not purchased from PCS)

    Ignore this thread - headset is faulty. Gonna take it back and swap it. It's a Microsoft Lifechat LX 3000. I've had them before, at least once a year over the last decade, they're usually a greay little headset for their cheap price. This time, however, they sound crap. The left ear cup keeps...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST A couple of questions about my new PC

    Hello all. My new PC came yesterday, got everything updated and whatnot and now it's time to start gaming :punk: But I have a couple of questions. I have a switch on the top of my case that controls some fans. I think it controls the rear extractor fan and the two extra case fans I asked for (£9...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Help diagnose my problem please =)

    Hello all. My new PC arrived today from pcspecialist (specs in sig, pictures in "show off your PC/Laptop" forum) and everything seems fine hardware-wise. Everything's firmly in place and so forth, it sounds lovely when running. I do have one problem though. It's a gaming PC primarily but I...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Processor cooling - a little help please :)

    So I just ordered a new PC from pcs, the specs are in my signature. In my old PC (also from pcs and also in my sig) the processor cooler I had was the "Super Quiet triple copper heatpipe 22dBA Cooler" and has served me well for a little over 2-years now, but this time... for some reason or...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Hello again!

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Graphics card making a new/strange noise.

    I've had the PC for almost a year now and the specs are in my signature. I'm just wondering if it's anything serious. I can only describe the noise it's making as a high pitched kind of dog whistle noise. It's not loud or anything but when I play a game and the fan starts spinning faster that's...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST My verdict on BF3...

    Worth the wait and one of the only (possibly the only) games to ever live up to such epic hype. I especially love the sound. I don't even have a sound card or expensive headset and the sound is amazing. Especially the explosions and distant gunfire. One could get shellshock playing this too...
