  1. Hi, I wanna get a 144hz 1440p Gaming monitor on a budget and I know Linus referenced these monitors in his 2019 monitor buying guide. He mentioned to wait for the G2 so I was thinking of getting that, but is it rlly worth the extra £70 (Because the non U version isn’t available in the UK). I don’t wanna spend over £300 but if you have any other recommendations that’d be great.
  2. I guess anything around £200-300. Definitely nothing more than 450-500
  3. Hi, I’m building my first gaming PC and I’m looking into peripherals. Rn I have a 60hz 1080p monitor, which I’ve been more than happy with. But I was wondering if I need to get a better one to go with the parts I’m gonna get. I’m gonna play mainly AAA tittles like Doom Eternal, and probably nothing competitve, but I don’t know if I should get a 1440p, or a 144hz or both. Here’s my part list (pretty much Linus’ $800 build from home.) GPU - EVGA 2060 KO Gaming Ultra CPU - 5 3600x RAM - Corsair 16GB RGB pro Mobo - Asrock b450m pro4 If you have any recommenda
  4. Thanks for the suggestions. I already have the case, but I'll take a look at that psu!
  5. I'm trying to build a budget gaming PC, but i'm constantly changing my mind on parts, especially the psu. Please help me make up my mind I was going to get the EVGA White 500 W1 or whatever its called or the EVGA 500BR, but I've heard they're not the best thermally. Here's the parts I'm gonna get: CPU: 5 3600x and stock cooler GPU: MSI RTX 2060 Ventus OC Mobo: ASROCK b450m pro4 RAM: Corsair 16GB RGB Pro Storage: 2TB Seagate Barracuda HDD, 256GB ADATA SU800 SSD Case: Coolermaster Mb520 I know it's not exactly 'budget' but I'm hoping to get the r
  6. Thanks, I am planning on playing big tittles and I’ve always wanted to see what RTX Minecraft looks like first hand. I have a 1080p 60Hz monitor, but I can always upgrade later as it is quite old.
  7. Hi, I’m about to build my first gaming computer and I’m rethinking some part choices. I was originally thinking of getting the Zotac 1650 super, but now I’m thinking of getting an RTX card and I heard the MSI RTX 2060 is a good, affordable one, I was just wondering if it is worth the extra money (almost double the price of the 1650 super) for an RTX card. I don’t mind paying more for one it just means I have to save up for longer. Money shouldn’t be a problem as I’ve seen this card in build guides that are around my budget when you take off the peripherals. I’m hoping on getting a Ryzen 3
  8. Hi, I’m planning on building my very first gaming pc soon but I don’t know wether to wait for price drops or start collecting now. With the newer hardware coming out I didn’t know wether to wait for Christmas and seeing what the prices are like for the hardware on my list, or wether the prices will drop at all and I should start buying now. The parts on my list aren’t high end at all, my budget is around £500-£600, so it’s a 1650 super and a 3 or 5 series AMD Cpu. What do you think I should do, start buying now or wait?
  9. Alright, I’ve narrowed it down and I think it’s between the Silverstone RL06 and the Coolermaster MB500. All my parts fit in both fine. I like the looks of both but I’m leaning towards the Silverstone on looks and amount of fans, although the MB500 does have a better price tag. Which would you go with?
  10. Yeah, I heard they’re a bit far and few between. I hear Newegg is good, is that US only? We have Curry’s PC world but they are tremendously over priced compared to amazon. I have seen a website called Scan, but all my parts seem to be able on Amazon.
  11. Yes I am. Ive been using amazon to get my parts so that’s a limiting factor for what parts I get. It’s a shame we don’t have anything like microcentre in the UK.
  12. Yes it is lol. Thanks for the list I’ll have a look through these.
  13. Hi, I'm building my first ever gaming PC and in need of a case. I was looking at the Cougar MG130-g because Linus recommended the 120 in his £500 build guide, but that’s not available near me. However I heard it doesn’t have the best airflow, which is important for me as I need my pieces to last. I’d prefer it to have a clear side panel so I can see in. I don’t mind paying a little extra if it comes with 2 fans at least because then I don’t have to buy £30 fan pack someone recommended to me. Hopefully there is a case out there that match those specs. Thanks!
