Georgie1471 0 seconds ago Hey, I am new to the PC arena and was wondering if I could get some help. I am going to hopefully build my own PC I was wondering how hard it would be to actually build one I've seen linus's videos and Bitwits they make it seem very easy but I don't know if it will correlate to me. My dad insists that I Should get( https://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/computing/desktop-pcs/desktop-pcs/msi-infinite-a-8rd-275uk-intel-core-i5-gtx-1070-gaming-pc-2-tb-hdd-128-gb-ssd-10182423-pdt.html ) but I just didn't see if I should.

Oh okay, thanks for the help - I was just wondering why you changed the parts not asking in an aggressive way more an intrigued way since I'm not the most PC savvy person

  • Most of those extra cards weren’t needed (as motherboard components have come a long way)

  • Newer GPU, with higher performance (2060 is similar in performance to a 1070TI)

  • Better storage devices (quality and speed)

  • AIOs might be pretty, but they come at the cost of increased maintenance, potentially higher noise levels, and the possibility of leaks. A good HSF will do the job just as well, without any penalties

  • The case you had had a closed in front panel, which doesn’t do much for system airflow. I’ve picked a case with a meshed front panel, to maximise system airflow (only drawback is that meshed cases are slightly noisier, but I don’t think you’ll notice)
