Up Close

The system comes in a very sturdy cardboard box with plenty of foam packaging. As well as the system itself there is a box that contains everything you would have received if you purchased the parts separately and built it yourself. The days when having a pre-built system meant sacrificing the useful adaptors, connectors and manuals are behind us.

As you can see there isn't a shortage of stuff. Everything is there from the driver disks to the spare case screws and PSU leads. You can move to SLI or other add-in cards without needing to seek out an esoteric cable.

The Corsair 230T is small but perfectly formed, with two 120mm fans in the front, 3 drive bays and front USB 3.0, it's everything you need without breaking the bank.

Something we have to give plenty of credit to PC Specialist for is this item right here. A bag that is made up of two compounds which, when combined, expand to fill all the gaps and ensure the components within the Minerva don't jiggle about in transit. One of the scariest things about any pre-built system is making it arrive in the same quality it left and we speak from bitter experience. So this particular piece of packaging wonderment ensures it does just that.

Was actually pricing it up to build and it's hard to get everything and be below the price they are charging,Quote

Pretty Close to what i'm about to build for my brother which I managed to do for £1128 including a nice IPS monitor.

Admittedly I only bought him 8GB of RAM but I still feel games don't need that and I bought higher speed
