Or should I wait a while longer.........
GOt £600 to spare and I was looking at this puppy:-
Cyberpower Regiment 1050Ti Gaming PC - AMD Athlon X4 950 CPU, Nvidia GTX 1050Ti 4GB GPU, 8GB 2400MHz RAM, 1TB HDD, 120GB SSD, Internal Wifi, Windows 10.
Any tips or advice is much welcome, thanks.
I get these notifications in the email - lots of great deals to be found for RAM, SSDs, etc
Newegg and Microcenter, sometimes PNY, mostly Newegg, though,
really! get moar stuff, NO REALLY!!
buy buy buy!! good deals on SSDs, DDR4 RAM, next gen Intel CPUs
And if you want help kitting out a computer, use pcpartpicker
If you want help building a computer, there are loads of videos on newegg and youtube (for instance
just go to Youtube and search for "build a gaming computer" and you'll get lots of options to view.)

Not sure if this is the right subforum but I just wanted to share my new gaming PC that I've built. After my old one was really showing its age (i5 2500k with 8GB RAM) and having issues where it would randomly decide to shut down on me and forcing me onto a crummy laptop for a week I felt it was time to get something new which would also provide me with the means to actually play Squadron 42 and Star Citizen at some point.
Here is the list of components that I used and some pictures
ASUS ROG MAXIMUS X CODE Intel Core i7-8700K Corsair Hydro H115i Corsair 32GB DDR4-3000 Vengeance RGB (2x16) ASUS GeForce GTX 1080 Ti OC Strix Gaming 11G Corsair Carbide Clear 400C White Corsair AX860 PSU Samsung 960 PRO M.2 512GB SSD Corsair ML120 Premium - Twin Pack Corsair ML140 Premium - Twin Pack Picture of all the components prior to unpacking and assembly
It was a tight fit due to the midsize case but I was able to fit everything properly. I replaced the original casefan and the ones for the radiator with the ML fans.
And here's the end-result! I wanted to go with an Aegis Avenger theme and I believe it worked out great
I got the Aegis decal from a site called Redbubble
