Hi, so this is my first build for reasonably high-end gaming pc. My budget is £1000-£1500, however I'm also getting a laptop so any money I save here would be great.
I've put together a build but I don't know whether it's any good, or whether the parts are even compatible. It would be a great help if you guys could check it out and give me suggestions or point out any problems. It would be great if any new parts/suggestions could come from www.scan.co.uk
, as that's where I'm getting my other stuff. Thanks!
