Not everyone has the time or inclination to build a new system themselves and luckily we have some great system builders in the UK. PCSpecialist have proven their worth in previous reviews on Kitguru and today we are looking at their latest Vanquish Z11 system which features an overclocked Core i5 3570K, fast solid state drive and GTX660ti graphics card.
Buyers are spoilt for choice in the United Kingdom right now, we recently reviewed the Wired2Fire Diablo Predator System, and while there were a few minor problems, the system was certainly worthy of a recommendation.
The Vanquish Z11 has a similar array of hardware inside, although PCSpecialist have removed extras from the price – such as monitor, keyboard and mouse and instead opted for the Corsair H40 liquid cooler, the Zalman Z11 case, a faster GTX660ti graphics card and KingstonV300 SSD with matching Kingston 10th Anniversary memory.
On paper it looks very tasty indeed, but how does it hold up under Kitguru testing?
