Custom PC — Issue 217

In Issue #217 we show you how to beat the scalpers by building an RTX gaming PC for just £1,099 inc VAT. By working together with Scan, we’ve put together a spec that’s guaranteed for the first 100 readers who order their kit.

Not only does the spec include an EVGA GeForce RTX 3060 graphics card, but it also comprises a liquid-cooled Ryzen 5 5600X, 16GB of RAM, a 1TB NVMe SSD and an attractive white Fractal case. Once you’ve picked up your discounted bundle of kit from Scan, you can then follow our ten-page guide to building and overclocking your new affordable gaming system.
