When creating a forum post looking to discuss a PC spec there's a really simple way to post the spec in question here.

IF YOU HAVEN'T ORDERED ONE YET AND ARE LOOKING FOR ADVICE ON A BUILD follow this step.

IF YOU HAVE ALREADY ORDERED AND ARE ASKED FOR SPECS follow the next post.

Click the 'Proceed Button' after making your component choices.

After passing through any other windows (i.e. telling you about the PSU or asking where you would like to install windows etc.) you will be shown a summary screen with your order. At the bottom of the system summary there is a button 'post to forums'

You'll get the full specification formatted for easy copy/pasting into a forum post, copy and paste the whole thing (whatever you leave out we will probably ask about). If you check towards the bottom of the page there is a link which is extremely handy as it goes back to your configuration - so don't forget to include that!

There are a few other hopefully obvious things to include also which help us out immensely;

  • 1) Your budget (you might not have a budget as such, but you will have an idea of the max you'd like to spend)
  • 2) What's the PC / Laptop for (gaming, workstation, heavy VM use, etc.) <-- as much detail as we can get here helps!
  • 3) What monitor will you be using (especially important for gaming) <-- there's no point in us suggesting a lower end graphics card if you have a 4K high refresh monitor!

We will undoubtedly ask you more questions along the way, but if you include all of the above in your first post it helps a lot and you'll get great engagement from all forum members.

PCS Admins/Mods - feel free to update/edit/delete as appropriate.

For those who have already purchased their spec - you can still post your spec to the forums.

To do this, log into your PCS account on the main website;

Go to your order and click on 'show':

At the bottom of the page will be a 'post to forum button':

Then post as described above in post #1.

Its worth noting that the spec may not include any changes you've made since pressing the order button so you might want to alter it to suit. The 'post to forum' button is a good way to generate the link though which is VERY useful for anyone giving advice.
