    Fair enough. I'll just decide on the day I suppose.

    Thanks for the help ;)

    Hi, did you received, what did you order in the end exactly and I'm guessing, you're putting together by yourself. I'm looking to buy something around the same budget but waiting for black friday first.

    My basket at Overclockers UK:
    Total: £934.57 (includes shipping: £11.70) ​
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Not from OCUK:
    Sabrent 1TB Rocket M.2 SSD -- £109.99
    Crucial Ballistic Sport LT 3200MHz 2x8GB --£75.59

    I ended up going with this in the end.

    Performs beautifully so far. I've been playing CoD: Modern Warfare at on max settings and it doesn't even break a sweat.

    I'm waiting for Black Friday to pick up a new monitor. Need something to compliment the build :D

    A 27" 1440p Freesync monitor would be a nice match.

    Yeah that's what I'm thinking, but I honestly just don't know specific models to be looking at.

    Probably going to make a post over in the 'Monitor' section to get some help.

    Nice, I was wondering if it's noisy after playing for a few hours, I hate the noise from my laptop.

    That must be Black Friday prices starting early, do you think?

    Not more noise than expected really. Just the gentle whirring of the fans.

    I have recently adjusted the fan curve for the GPU, so it's a little louder than stock now.

    Are these worth Patriot Viper 4 16GB (2x 8GB) 3200MHz DDR4 RAM, for the price of 55£
    Rather than Crucial Ballistic Sport LT 3200MHz 2x8GB --£75.59?

    That Patriot Ram would be fine. You can always mess around with overclocking it if you want. There is handy tools such as Ryzen dram calculator that make it a lot easier.
