Hiya folks!

Ordered my first gaming PC yesterday, I'm so excited!!

I've been wanting one for years now, finally saved up enough for a decent one! I've wanted one for Twitch streaming (mostly for Minecraft gameplay) and other indie games. My current laptop has been good to me, but it just hasn't been powerful enough to stream games at a decent framerate.

I'm not well versed when it comes to PC parts and assembly, so I went with one of PCSpecialist's recommended specs within my budget + changed a couple of things (because some of the parts were out of stock haha) but I'm happy with what I've ordered!

Thanks for reading! <3

Welcome to the forum. You say your are not well versed in PC parts / assembly, but have changed things on the specs. If you want someone to read over what you have ordered to offer any advice in case you need to change anything before they start building then have a quick read of this:

The monitor I'll be working with isn't the greatest but I've run out of money. I'm using an AOC 22 Business Monitor | LED - FHD | VGA | 60HZ | Widescreen. The monitor has been good to me, especially when connected up to my laptop to use as a double monitor set up, I'm just not sure how well it will do when it comes to gaming.
