Specifications

To get a Gaming PC which is the most cost-effective combination of components there obviously will have to be certain trade-offs, spending money on certain brands or makes of components which will have little to no real effect on gaming performance will not be listed as an option as we feel that there would likely be better, more feasible ways of spending extra money. If you do have a larger budget then have a look at our other available Gaming PC's.

 

Processor (CPU)

Intel Core i5-2500, Quad-Core 3.3GHz

Cooling

All of our gaming builds will all come with a stock cooler as Standard (unless otherwise stated above) . This cooler is very capable of keeping your systems cpu running cool during intensive loads. This cooler makes minimal noise even when the CPU is under such loads as observed by our technicians.

Further cooling of the computer will be provided by the case fans. the number of fans will vary depending on the case that you select however this will normally be 2-5 120mm fans which will again be ample to supply fresh air into the case and expel warmer air.

Motherboard

This Gaming PC will have an H or Q series 1155 socket motherboard installed in it.

Memory (RAM)

There will be 8GB memory installed in this system and it will run at stock speeds for the given chipset which will be more than enough for this system to game on.

Storage - Primary Hard Drive

All of our primary hard drives will be standard 3.5" 7200RPM drives. We do not tie ourselves to particular brands but rather follow market trends using which ever drive is mostcost effective at the time to ensure that your computer receives optimum performance drivers at this particular budget.

Storage - SSD

We tend to use 250GB Samsung SSD's in our systems but in the unlikely event that those would be out of stock then we would use something like Crucial or other top brands which would deliver as similar performance as possible.

Graphics Card (GPU)

We will only be sticking to cards which we have tried in tested in value based systems. These are cards that we know to offer the best price for performance. We purposely do not use some of the newer 10 Series cards as there are lower cost cards which can deliver the same performance. Using this strategy to build value gaming computers means that we are able to build the better price for performance gaming computers improving your overall gaming experience.

Power Supply (PSU)

For many years we have tries various PSU’s with some of the models from “top brands” like Corsair, Coolermaster and Aerocool turning out to be extremely unreliable. We currently use Kolink Power Supplies and have done for the majority of our builds for quite some time now and are very pleased with the results as they happen to be the most reliable power supply that we have used to date. For this system, the wattage of the PSU installed will be dependent on the overall power requirements of the components that you have chosen taking into account that there will be extra room left if you would like to make some minor upgrades in the future.

Want a More Premium Case?

We offer a wide variety of cases which we can build your system into, so many in fact that its impossible to list them in the "Model Of Case" option above hence why we have only listed a small number of the most popular cases in this section. If you would like a different case which is not listed above then you can select "I Want a More Premium Case" which will deduct the cost of any case from the build allowing you to then go and select your favourite case from our Gaming Cases section of the website and add it to your basket separately prior to checkout, therefore, completing your system

Included Software

Windows 10, Office Package And Antivirus along will all other software that we deem essential to get you up and running quickly and easily.

Internet Connectivity

All of our computers come with Ethernet built in as standard. However, customers are advised that rather than using WiFi they would use Home Plugs aka Powerline Adaptors. See the link below for an explanation as to how these work
