    PCSPECIALIST Keyboard Recommendations Please

    The time has come to get an actual gaming keyboard. I do love my Logitech DiNovo Edge but I really miss the numerical keypad and it can be a bit sluggish when gaming.

    PCSPECIALIST Will the CPU be a significant bottleneck?

    My old PCS PC has a AMD PHENOM II X6 1100T processor. Will it cause a major bottleneck to a pair of 980ti's? Will putting them in there help run games such as Starwars Battlefront and Rise of the Tomb Raider? Just contemplating my options. I quite fancy a 1080 or I'll maybe wait for the...

    PCSPECIALIST Am I missing something?

    Hello When running some checks, I noticed that my overclock was not present. PCS had said it was overclocked to 4.5Ghz but in CPU-Z it was only at 4.0Ghz. I have not overclocked myself for a while so did some reading and started about it. I used ROG Realbench to do benchmarking and HW Monitor...

    PCSPECIALIST Oculus Rift

    Was excited to pre-order this today expecting it in the £250-£300 area as had been speculated. Logged in to find it was going to cost £529 including shipping!! I don;t know how they can justify that price. Is it really worth it for the first release of VR? Looks like I am going to have to wait :'(

    PCSPECIALIST My new beast of a PC

    Today I received my new PC I had been so excited about. It was a surprise as I was told Monday and it was lucky I was in! An excellent build quality from PCS as expected. However, I upgraded to the 1000w PSU with view to SLI in the future and had a 850w one fitted. Hopefully they will respond to...
