Hello!

I am building my first PC which will predominantly be used for gaming and surfing the web. A friend of mine recommended the EVGA GEFORCE GTX1070 and paired it with the default components in the system builder and I was wondering if this was okay or if you could suggest any other/all components that will go with this video card? I am very much looking toward a 1070/1080p video card and am willing to pay a little extra for a smooth experience (or as smooth as one can get). The only other component I definitely want is an SSD, and I already have a monitor, keyboard and mouse in mind so I would like to keep those separate.

I would also like to add on the hardware installation as well.

Sorry if any of this is vague!

Morning Catlord,


What components did you have for the system currently and are you able to send that through here?


Alternatively, I can quote up a system for you if you let me know what resolution your screen is and what kind of budget you would like to stick too.

Morning Catlord,


I have quoted up a complete system based on your previously sent through parts list, with a few changes to improve performance.

I've doubled your RAM amount at 8GB may be a limitation for some games at your current resolution.

Added a 2TB HDD to your PC for storage of games and files/ mass storage.

Upgraded your GPU to a Strix GTX1070ti for additional system grunt.

Upgraded your Power supply to a 650w G2 for better system load and near silence.

Let me know your thoughts on all of this.
