Any recommendations where I should buy a ready made gaming PC from these days? Budget is under £700 so I know it's not going to be earth shattering.
Scan do free next day delivery for avf members.... [emoji4]Thanks! I'd forgotten about Overclockers completely. I built my own i7 box a few years ago so certainly know my way around, just not sure I have the time. I need it all delivered and built by the end of next week as is a present for my son.
With what is in my sig I also have 7 Fans (2 top, 2 Heatsink, 1 Rear, 1 Front, 1 Side) along with 1xSSD and 4xMechanical Drives.There are online wattage calculators that can help. Most modern components are efficient so I can't see you needing more than 550w but for peace of mind, run the components through a calculator.
I'm using a corsair 600w and my components are a lot more hungry than modern ones and the machine your building is pretty much the same just a newer version so you should be ok
Exactly, unless you are going to dual GPU your machine and have every single bell and whistle even a 500w should be fine.you have loads of headroom
That software is really handy ive always used online calculators so thanks for sharingExactly, unless you are going to dual GPU your machine and have every single bell and whistle even a 500w should be fine.
I was just trying to provide another example with a breakdown of whats in my machine and then show what the corsair link software is feeding back.
GPU was at 80% load and peaked at 225
