New Desktop
Hi guys,

Looking at a new desktop. Thinking of something stylish with grunt. Any thoughts on this: https://www.overclockers.co.uk/showprodu...catid=2475

RE: New Desktop
Grunty. I have the GTX680Ti with an i7 and it is very good. Still.

16GB RAM. Might up that to 32GB tops.

RE: New Desktop
I always build my own computers, its ok, not sure what the cooling would be like in a tiny case.

8gb is stock now

boot drive isn't an SSD (although it could be the seagate hybrid drive, spec doesn't say)
Just looked up the CPU, its a lappy cpu, only 2 cores and 4 threads. AVOID.

Build yer own, only way to be sure of getting quality components. Might have a bash at a build for the same money.

went over slightly
forgot the power supply https://www.overclockers.co.uk/showprodu...=CA-003-SF

nic, think I would go with a heatsink and fan vs all AIO (all in one, sealed cooler), they can be prone to failure, little point given how small the intel chips can be overclocked now
