PCSpecialist Vanquish 230X Review

19 Flares 19 Flares ×

As we arrive at the tail end of 2013, there could be no better time to treat yourself to a new system. If you have neither the time nor desire to build a system yourself then respected UK builder PC SPECIALIST have been creating some killer rigs this year.

We asked them what they could build for £999 inc VAT and delivery. In answer, their new Vanquish 230X system arrived with us last week and it features one of the latest Intel Haswell processors and an AMD R9 280X graphics card. But is it any good?

    So you need expensive 2400Mhz ram now ? you need 16GB? no need for the SSD, use extra money and get a new PSU 850W and an extra 290x =P

    Gareth – seriously. get a clue. You wouldn’t need a 850W PSU for a 290X, and who wants a reference 290X that sounds like a helicopter anyway.

    16GB of RAM is futureproof for a few years and an SSD is the best thing you can add into a system. Amazing you would sacrifice all those good things, for an ultra loud video card and a power supply you dont need.

    A half decent PSU to run all that expensive kit – finally. Sick of seeing £1000 PCs with crappy Corsair CXs.

    Hugely impressive specification for the money, miles ahead of anything else pre-built on the market at this time. Ordered mine yesterday, cheers for the heads-up!
