Thanks, ended up doing it myself, wasn't bad at all with a couple of YouTube vids. Hadn't built one in 15+ years, but not a lot had changed thankfully.
I used Mesh Computers for mine just before Christmas and they did a great job. Well built, talked to a rep who was able to adjust everything to my liking and when I booted up I saw they threw in a free upgrade to Windows Pro. After sales was very good, too. Here's a look at what I got. https://youtu.be/8mtU5z6J9x0
A friend of mine couldn't say enough good things about CyberPower. He had to get something in his PC checked and they were great for support, so he says.
I've seen it much cheaper if you watch the prices This PC would be £1000 in a another (better) universe where there is no crypto miners, Ram prices are normal, SSD prices are normal If they dont start going back to normal soon, PC gaming will die, the manufacturers don't care since they are making a lot of money When they are making cards now I don't think they have gamers in mind, they are thinking "we've gotta make this card cheap but the best for mining, we need plenty of stock"
i've been looking at custom built gaming pcs and this doesn't seem bad at all. aside from the psu (and maybe ssd to boot), is it really that bad performance wise:/ EVGA gold 650w should suffice? Which are better psu subs?
