PC Specialist always package their systems extremely well and the Rutilus is no exception. As well as a serious amount of protective foam and the highest quality cardboard, inside the box you receive all the manuals, disks, cables and adaptors you'd expect to have if you built it yourself.

The Corsair Spec 03 case mixes outstanding value without compromising looks or quality.

You still get front panel USB, dust filters, plenty of ventilation. Heck if you're crazy enough there are ports for routing some radiator hosing.

When you're having to choose such an affordable power supply it's more important that the budget goes towards quality internal components rather than features which only matter to show offs. This is a working rig so we went with the Corsair VS450 which will last forever, but on the flip side the compromise you have to make is that the cables aren't as nice to look at. PCS have done a great job routing them as best you can, but this is a blue collar system so obviously some adjustment of expectations has to be made.

There are many R9 270Xs around, but the VTX3D model combines outstanding value - at this price point a fiver makes all the difference -  with a great cooler to ensure that you can squeeze the maximum performance from this pocket rocket.

£550!? It's a stonking machine for the cash, gaming wise it spanks my rig. What's not to love, everyone enjoys an underdog and this Billy Bargain rig speaks volumes. Great find and write up Bryan.Quote
