New Desktop PC came today

Received the PC today, set it up and so far all perfect. The case is an absolute monster but a gentle giant as it's super quiet, im really glad ive went with it. If the temperatures stay fine i might swap the mesh top for the solid one.

I plan to buy a 2nd larger SSD when i get paid next, can I buy one from PCSpecialist?

That's a very serious looking PC: some great component choices there. Yes, you can absolutely buy an SSD from PC Specialist with the upgrade system. You want at least 1GB and if you can go for one of the PCIe 4.0 drives (another 980 Pro, or one of the Seagate Firecuda 530s) that would be the ideal looking towards Direct Storage in the future.

Thanks, see how to do it now.

I really like that case, it's nicely understated for those that want a more discrete system, and still excellent cooling when you're factoring in an AIO.

It's really spacious, lots of room to work in and for upgrades.

Looking really good, congratulations (y)

I actually think the Define is smaller than you would expect. I've had bigger cases. The Antec one that I had was way bigger than the define :D

I had a Coolermaster CM690 II Advanced Dominator (Remember when they had crap names) with two 6950's running Crossfire in it, that case was huuuge but I love it. My mate has it now with a new GPU in it
