damn, £300 less? that's good, b-but, if building a PC is a £300 job then god damn, plus on top of all that, if I mess up and something's not compatible then fuck me. I'll lose all ma monis. Or at least more money.

Generally I would shoot for something with a CPU that hits around 4.0GHz, 8gb of RAM, and 1TB of storage. All of that is plenty for a simple gaming rig/workstation. Another thing about building your own is that you can make it so future upgrades are possible.

Wait? Surely having it prebuilt would allow for future upgrades, otherwise wouldn't that suggest that building it yourself would technically be more unstable?

They do allow for future upgrades, but size might be an issue. For example, that dell rig is close to what I have, but I swapped in a GTX760. If I wanted to step it up any further, I'd have to gut the whole thing and put it in a new case because there is absolutely no room. Shit would have to be cut and sticking out the back for it to work

Looks like you thoroughly understand the tradeoff.

Another thing you could do is just get a prebuilt with a good mostly good specs, then switch out parts afterward. Like www.dell.com/us/p/xps-8700/pd?oc=fdcwgs104r&model_id=xps-8700 but switch out the video card and you're right as rain

Swap out the PSU with something that has a little more power (600-750 range) and That is a pretty good rig.

I need it for working on too.

Of course, were you to build it yourself, I would go with something like this pcpartpicker.com/p/svk9wP which is about 300 quid less. I's ask around to see if this is a good build since I'm not a genius.

Building a computer isn't as hard as it sounds, but you need to do a lot of research to see if everything's compatible. Also searching how to actually build is obviously a must

With minimal effort on my end, it looks like www.pcspecialist.co.uk/view/Vortex-1000-OC/ would be more than enough for anything. Overkill really

I would change the hard drives so that there is no ssd, add the 300mbps wireless pci-e card if you want wifi, and change the graphics card to a GTX 760 because I am a Nvidia fanboy. This should put you at 915 quid

Also keep in mind that this doesn't include peripherals such as monitor, mouse, keyboard or hdmi cable

eh, not really, depends how much cheaper it would be if I did it and how much I could save off the same stats by doing it myself.. I don't really look at cyberpc but at pcspecialist they seem to build it for you.
