    PCSPECIALIST (Maybe) The end of my G9

    So the time has possibly come, I'm thinking about swapping out my G9... I've had this monitor just under a year now, and I've had a great gaming and working experience with it. The sheer size of the monitor still blows me away today, it's just an absolute beauty! However, a recent event has...

    Saw this pop up on my YouTube today with someone playing MSFS with it, this is just crazy...! Dual native 4K, a 200° FOV for around €1169 🤯 Also displays up to 90Hz if upscaled, looks like this could be the future of VR headsets. Might have to invest...

    Well well well, it’s finally been announced! Due to launch on the 3rd June with a retail price of £1,049, but how does it compare to the 3080 and 3090? Well it’s as close as you can get to the 3090, just with less VRAM, would you say the price is right for this card? A jump from £649 MSRP to...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST New mouse recommendations

    So I'm in the market for a new mouse, I currently have a Razer Deathadder Chroma and I've had it for many years now (probably around 5, not exact) and it's started to wear out quite significantly. I prefer its simplicity of only having the two buttons where the thumb rests, I don't want it...

    As you'll be able to tell from the photos below, I need some advice on cable management... I know about a bracket for the surge protector which I'm going to get, but what do you guys recommend for all the loose cables?

    Not sure which section this should be posted in, would assume it's a peripheral? Move it if needed :) Anyway, has anyone here got Starlink?

    Hello :) Purchase isn't for me, is for a friend. They were just about to spend £800 on a laptop with 8GB of 2133MHz RAM and an awful CPU...I just could not allow it!! I've asked them if I can try to find them anything better and they accepted, so here we are. I personally don't know a lot...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Big budget PC builders...assemble to my build!

    So I recently made a post that I'd be wanting to upgrade to a 3090 at some point and was advised to go for the 3080 instead, which is fine by me. I'd also need to upgrade my PSU and also my case for better airflow, which is fine. HOWEVER, today I've received a very pretty looking email from my...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Will the RTX 3090 be beaten?

    Had my PC for about a year now, got a 2070 Super and it's running good! However, in a year or so when hopefully the shortages get...shorter...I'll be looking to sell the 2070 Super and upgrade to the 3090. Now, my question is, is it looking likely for something better than the 3090 to be coming...

    Hi guys :) The past few days my fans have been spooling up a lot for my CPU and I've noticed due to how loud the fans get (with them being at full power). I've checked HWMonitor and my CPU temps are jumping from 40c up to 95c (the worst I've seen it) for maybe 30 seconds and then it drops back...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Dad's laptop, any good?

    Hey guys! My dad has just purchased a laptop as he wants something better than something from PC World but also something that isn't at all expensive. His budget was around £350 as this is understandable when he only needs it for work - he just needs to have lots of word documents, download...
