Not a link, but my advice would be to look for specs around a 6600k and a Nvidia 1060 6GB. Make sure you get an SSD and at least 16GB of ram.

Although it might be a little more expensive, it will last you a lot longer than buying some of the budget builds some of these custom pc builders offer.

Also, why not try building your own? It's really easy nower days and you can get way better value for money!

Thanks for the advise.

Build your own, you don't need any experience. If you can build Lego then you can build a PC.

reddit.com/r/b…apc has tons of information.

Thank you but prefer the safeguard of a warranty, I'm a bit of a noob when it comes to electronics.

​there's warranty on each part. Break your motherboard pins with the CPU? Warranty.

Seems unlikely that a warranty would cover damage you caused yourself during a build.

scan offers warranty for that, small fee extra but good for peace of mind for noobs
