Hi!, was hoping to get some advice on this build. I plan on using the PC for computer gaming, programming, 3D & 2D design work and abit of editing. Possibly a little bit of Diablo streaming to for fun. I want to use two screens and have my game settings on ultra is that possible with this setup and dual monitors? I welcome any advice that could increase performance.

Yes you can send the case to PCS, just select "send your own case" on the configurator and input the details on the 2nd page.

The GPU question is a bit more tricky, PCS only sell reference designs (sometimes you do get aftermarket coolers etc but never OC'ed) so if you must know what card they have you will need to buy and fit that yourself.

If you want aftermarket GPU editions, then buy them separately elsewhere and install yourself as I did.

For the 980Ti I would highly recommend the Gigabyte G1 Gaming edition.

Has anyone ever purchased an Overclocked PC from PCS before and how does it work? do you get an option of how high the OC you want and is it still covered by PCS even with the OC they do? very curious sorry :p any help would be brilliant.

I don't think you get to pick the OC level (unless you want it relatively small) its usually an 'up to xx GHz' overclock. However yes the OC'd rig is covered under warranty by PCS.
