Mouth watering build!

I cant see any of your parts listed as out of stock on PCS so not sure why it'll take any longer than others. I'm sure it'll go into building soon. Keep us posted!

I'm on WD 11, but I've noticed one of the case fans I selected is now out of stock, so might remove it from my order. Don't want a fan holding back the build.

I spoke to PCS yesterday and they said if the item was not out of stock when you ordered it then it won't have an effect on build time. They also suggested I would be waiting until next week to enter build.


For reference on my build, I got an OEM thing when I was at Uni which I am still using (4 core 4 thread i5 6400), with whatever rubbish motherboard I have. Admittedly the GTX 970 is good but I have 1 stick of 8 gig ram... After using that for 6 years I felt it was time for an upgrade. My build is 6 years worth of saving and my hope is it's worth it :)

Just on this build mate, if you plan to use wireless I would upgrade that Wifi card to the AX200. The wireless card selected there is ancient single band card, it's pretty terrible. The AX200 also has built in Bluetooth 5.0

I don't really, but having the option is always welcome. I have updated the wifi card :) thank you for the advice

That good to know! appreciate the input. I'll leave my build as is :)

Sounds like your new pc is a HUGE upgrade from the previous, No doubt the 6 years wait will be well worth the wait and a totally new experience
