New PC Time - Prebuilt

Post by AndyCr15 » Fri Dec 21, 2018 9:50 am

I'm thinking of treating myself for my birthday next month with a new gaming/video editing PC. In the past I would buy all the components and build it myself. While this can be fun, it can also be a nightmare if things go wrong, so I'm thinking to play it safe and buy one built for me.

I'm currently thinking of using PC Specialist and leaning towards a Threadripper 2950X along with a 2070 Gfx card.

Any thoughts, suggestions? Including places to buy from.

I've been looking at the 9900k bundles Overclockers has around the £970-£1k mark and then keeping my 1070 and possibly going for a 2060 later in the year.

I'm going to keep building my machines as I have my white 570x case and it will be a skill I want to pass on when my son is a bit older.

Nice!

I'm looking, now Samsung have released the QVO drives, to replace some of my spinning disks with SSDs when the time comes.

Would love to hear your thoughts on the 2070.
