    Buying one of OCUK's prebuilt PCs. Could I save money on the OS?

    If I build a new rig then I would start afresh... install my software and then image it.

    850w Platinum PSU. Superflower? Corsair? etc?

    I use gold. Not really much difference in them. I take it you are plugging in to the mains and not a clean power supply anyway. Gold RM or RMX would do me

    850w Platinum PSU. Superflower? Corsair? etc?

    I have always bought Corsair. Never had an issue and they have always out lasted my PC. They are rated for about 100,000 hours which is about 10 years.

    Is 8GB of Vram enough for the 3070

    Im running a 3070ti in a new build. It was the best card at the time that was within my budget. I aim to replace it when prices settle but for now I play at 1440p with settings on max and for my games its fine.

    3070 worth the extra £100-£150 vs 6700XT

    Actually I have the ti but I haven't even pushed it to its extreme yet. I think the most intense games I have played are GTA V Fallout 4/New Vegas and the Outer Worlds. I do want to try FS2020 when that drops but so far im happy with it and 8GB is plenty for me.

    3070ti No display port signal

    Hi I have spent ages wondering why my 4 month old 3070 ti suddenly started to not display from the display ports. HDMI was ok. I swapped cables and still no display. Eventually I put the original cable back in and wiggled it a tiny bit and the picture returned. Is this a dodgy card or...

    1440 vs 4K

    It depends on how close you are. For me I sit about 60cm away from the screen and 27" is just right. I found 32" like sitting in the front row of the cinema. 4K is nice for optimised games at 60fps but I don't just game so 1440p works well for non gaming apps.

    1440 vs 4K

    In the end I went for a Samsung Odyssey 27". I sit fairly close to it and 32 would have been too in my face. Also 1440 is fine. 4K would have been too small for office work and windows. I know you can scale but it's not reliable and no gpu is up to 4k gaming yet. Also the manufacturer had it on...

    Extra storage SATA or M.2

    Hmmm your are probably right with read times. The odd couple of seconds is not goin* to be noticeable in real word terms on a home PC. But then again to have the ability to read data at lightening fast speeds it tempting.

    Extra storage SATA or M.2

    Lag: A longer and noticeable delay in response times or load times using SATA SSD vs NVMe SSD.

    Extra storage SATA or M.2

    This is the thing. The drive will be for games and movies. My M.2s are lightening but will I notice a lag if I put a SATA SSD in instead of a 3rd M.2? Is it worth the extra cost?
