Here at KitGuru we love high end gaming hardware, however we also appreciate that some people don't want to spend £1800 on a mighty graphics card such as a Gigabyte RTX 4090 Gaming OC, and you can include your reviewer in that group. It is a similar story with fabulous and expensive CPUs such as the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X3D… so how would you feel if we told you the PCSpecialist Tempest Nova gaming PC is available for £1099 inc VAT? Admit it, that sounds good.

In our video we go through the specification of the Tempest Nova in some detail. These photos are merely intended to remind you of the major components and the minimalist nature of the PC, as well the tidy build performed by PCSpecialist.
These screengrabs of CPU-Z and GPU-Z confirm the specification of the CPU, memory and graphics which have clearly been selected to minimise costs while still offering a certain level of grunt. You may have your doubts about how well this hardware can perform so hang on to your hat and take a gander at our testing charts.
