If you’re after the ultimate in gaming performance but for the lowest possible outlay, this system from PC Specialist should be right up your street. Packing an Intel Core i7-8700K and Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, it’s a top-notch gaming machine yet it costs just £1,629.
Considering that CPU and graphics card combo alone will set you set you back over £1,000 when bought separately, to get a full system for £600 more is mighty impressive.
You also get a Fractal case with a glass side panel, a 256GB M.2 SSD, a 2TB hard drive and of course all the essentials to keep everything running, including a Corsair power supply, Asus motherboard and Corsair all-in-one liquid CPU cooler. The system even comes pre-overclocked.
Otherwise, there’s next to nothing in the way of extras here, with just a couple of strips of white LEDs lighting up in the interior, but for the price this should still prove to be a mighty impressive PC.
