Recently got this via PC specialist (warning! for those with PC Heads only) - PC specialist is a custom UK PC build website, much cheaper than the off the shelf gaming PCs you can get:

Case
FRACTAL FOCUS G BLACK GAMING CASE (Window)
Processor (CPU)
AMD Ryzen 5 3600 Six Core CPU (3.6GHz-4.2GHz/36MB CACHE/AM4)
Motherboard
ASUS® TUF X570-PLUS GAMING (USB 3.2 Gen 2, PCIe 4.0, CrossFireX)
Memory (RAM)
16GB Corsair VENGEANCE DDR4 3200MHz (2 x 8GB)
Graphics Card
8GB NVIDIA GEFORCE RTX 2070 SUPER - HDMI, 3x DP GeForce
1st Storage Drive
1TB SEAGATE BARRACUDA SATA-III 3.5" HDD, 6GB/s, 7200RPM, 64MB CACHE
1st M.2 SSD Drive
500GB SAMSUNG 970 EVO PLUS M.2, PCIe NVMe
External DVD/BLU-RAY Drive
8x Slim USB 2.0 External DVD-RW
Power Supply
CORSAIR 650W TXm SERIES™ SEMI-MODULAR 80 PLUS® GOLD, ULTRA QUIET
Processor Cooling
STANDARD AMD CPU COOLER
Thermal Paste
STANDARD THERMAL PASTE FOR SUFFICIENT COOLING
Sound Card
Asus Xonar AE 7.1-Channel Gaming Audio Card
Wireless/Wired Networking
WIRELESS INTEL® Wi-Fi 6 AX200 2,400Mbps/5GHz, 300Mbps/2.4GHz PCI-E CARD + BT 5.0
USB/Thunderbolt Options
MIN. 2 x USB 3.0 & 2 x USB 2.0 PORTS @ BACK PANEL + MIN. 2 FRONT PORTS

Only downside is the 1TB HD in retrospect but I have a 4TB WD Black external to make up for it (and I put games like RUST and Warhammer Total War 2 on the SSD, along with just the OS / app files for speed purposes)

Very nice, still using a system with an old I7-5930k in, although considering an NVIDIA 3080 when Cyberpunk comes around.

Picked up a 32" Samsung G7 monitor recently which is lovely, although I had to go down to 2 monitors to fit it on my desk!

I just use the one monitor, my new 2560x1440 screen I bought to go with this PC, but it's has a good screen quality and is very clear.

Cyberpunk hopefully should run on all sorts of rigs as when the witcher 3 came out a few years ago it still ran OK on my old PC, so while I'm saying it won't run on a toaster, cd project tend to optimise their games well.

Yeah, its just an excuse - I was using 3x 1920x1080 displays that only had a 90hz refresh rate, then I read an article saying 144hz wasn't fast enough ;o

I have the Corsair AX860i PSU which may well have been replaced by now, but one thing I love about it is that the fan is only on when its needed (which seems to be never) so it is obviously very quiet!

So you had no issues with your generation of that PSU, which is encouraging. Off to see if I can find the current version of it

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
