Email? Are we in 1998?! haha.

Sure I'll email you.

I'd rather you ask questions, so I can help properly as I don't want you to get the wrong things etc.

Don't rush into this though, as much as you may want to play games, it's better to make sure you know you're making the right decisions for you.

The most important thing right now is making sure you do get a Ryzen 1600, though. As there is no better CPU for the price/performance.

I'll drop you an email now just so you can contact me if you need!

If you get the parts over a few weeks rather than all at once, you can likely get them cheaper as I mentioned before.

1070's often drop in price to 350 or around there give or take. etc.

It also gives you more time to do your own research, and decide if you really want XX part.

Chillblast Fusion Adamantium Gaming PC with GTX 1080 £1349.99

I know this is not cheap but Chillblast have a good rep and for a GTX 1080 system this seems pretty reasonable.

Anyone recommend a similar site with a good reputation for total PC customisation?

Any other feedback on Chillblast? I was considering buying this same model from their website until i noticed this thread, the model with an i7 and slightly larger 256 SSD drive is £200 more almost a year later, their customisation prices i agree are very dear but i guess you are paying for labour also.... but the wait time is a little off putting too, you have to pay more than £100 to get it a few days quicker, on the other hand they do seem to win a few awards so maybe the build quality is not too bad but the one thing that stands out is the cheap power supply on this system...so you have to add another £50 pound straight away to change it.

Because a deal is about value for money, not the actual cost. A 4 Bedroom detached house for 50k is a deal but its not cheap...

'I know this is not cheap'

Then why put it on a deal website

Building is the easy part, diagnosing a problem if something arrives DOA can be a big problem for a novice and frankly someone experienced too.

Don't get me wrong - fantastic for joe bloggs but anyone intending on getting into PC gaming really needs to look more careful at the components they use.



Agreed!

Also one other big reason is warranty, most machines come with basic labour costs only cover after the first year whilst buying new components normally nets you a minimum of 3 years warranty per component and you can fix it yourself. Again though if you don't have the know-how it's not the option for you but I much prefer this than having to ship my entire system off somewhere for repair.



fair words and how i feel too. I have bought pre built and I have gone on to build my own many times.... Even now i look at prebuilts but only really as a comparison... the truth is if you splash out a few quid in the first place then think like your cpu will outlast your gpu in terms of year on year benefits towards games... even ram stagnates unless there has been recent development such as ddr4.

So, to any prospective gaming buyer with no building skills... buy a prebuilt to the most you cann afford... then when you can no longer play your games learn to upgrade basic things like HDD's and GPU's even coolers. they are quick installs and the benefits reap...

yup should be in misc no deal here.



I've seen plenty of items posted on HUKD which are full price, but they are recommendations that the product is the best for the money even at the price it's being sold at. I wanted to recommend 2 pre-built PC's as well as advice for custom builds. Having said that I didn't know about the misc section!! Fair comment.

What do people think will make a good mid priced graphics card?? Is the 960 not good enough? The 970's seems to go for £100 more. GTX980i seems OTT. Is Asus still struggling to keep up??

I was thinking of a build of:
Skylake i5 6600k - (Not sure when the other chips will be released.) Seems to be a shortage of them. £200
Power Supply - Corsair RM750i - £100
2x8gb DDR4 Corsair Vengeance ram at 2400ghz. £100
Corsair H60 water cooler. £60 (Too much?? Would a standard fan be ample)
Case - Corsair 450D £95
ASUS Z170K - £105
Need to decide on graphics card!

I would recycle my 250GB Evo 840 SSD drive. Recycle standard 250gb hard drive. With a graphics card I would look to reach about £800. I plan to upgrade my current windows 7 to windows 10 and do a clean install afterwards from a cd.

Not sure on the graphics. I figure a Skylake rig will be more future proof. Core 2 duo machine is still working nicely for basics.

I do wonder if the water cooler is OTT. Also the gold rated power supply may not be needed. Also if I really need a unlocked i5 Skylake chip. Unfortunately they don't seem to have released any other chips.

I currently have a core 2 duo 2.4ghz with 4gb ram and a nice SSD drive but very poor budget graphics card. .

It's a £500 GPU. I'd hope I could play games at 60FPS with it



Don't forget the £500 for a monitor that will actually make it sweat

Every demanding game I've loaded since has run nVidia Experience optimised games at over 60fps (in most cases, well over). Unless you have a majority of CPU bound games, I'd recommend you acquire an 980Ti. Never having found a need to use the word before, awesome is the only one which sums the performance + it's absolutely silent.



If adding a 980ti your going to need to budget another £400-500 for a 1440/144 monitor

gaming pc with the least effort put into the graphics card. u would rather downgrade everything else and upgrade the graphics

You say that as if playing games is the only thing you can do on this PC.

I don't understand how some people can be sooo wrong. but of you're right please send a link.

I think his joke is that on most Mac deals people state you can get an equivalent PC for half the price
