Custom PC — Issue 226

In Issue 226 we show you how to spec up and build a 4K gaming rig, complete with a high-end GPU that you won’t have to buy at an inflated price on eBay. We take you through all the hardware options for a variety of budgets, showing you which areas to prioritise, before guiding you through the step-by-step process of building and setting up a glorious ultra high definition gaming PC.

Follow our guide, and you’ll have a system that can happily play Doom Eternal at 140fps with maximum settings and ray tracing at 4K, while also hitting awesome frame rates in other titles.
