Description

I Built this machine mainly for gaming as the last PC i had was a old AMD APU dual core and a RX 460 Which could barely run CS-GO above 30fps. Thankfully now i have this beast which is perfect for all the games i play and runs super quiet while under load and when idle.

Although i would like to upgrade the stock NZXT fans in the future to some quieter fans.

Edit:Recently Upgraded to an ASUS PB277Q 2560x1440p 75Hz (and may i say it is a fantastic upgrade from my 1080i 30hz Hitatchi tv)

You get that 1070 amazon black friday week?

corbinleyman 1 point 16 months ago

It's GBP currency lmfao

That's what I'm talking about though? I seen that price on Black Friday here in the uk. Wondered if it was snatched up that day.

Yea, I guess you're right... that is hella cheap.

corbinleyman 1 point 16 months ago

Pretty sure you can grab it for 450 USD on amazon

There is no conversion from USD to GBP on most pc components, especially GPU's. If it's $450 it's almost always £450 and no it's not only brexit that caused this, it's capitalism at its finest it's been this way for as long as I've been alive anyway.
