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.
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
you have loads of headroom
Exactly, 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
