Step 3: Choose your Processor option
Intel i3 8100
Intel i5 8400 / 8500 / 8600
Intel i7 8700
Our gaming CPU options are all 8th Generation Coffee Lake Intel processors. The higher in price you go, the better the processor. If you want the best, get an i7. The i5's are the highest value picks. We offer 3 types of i5's that are separated by performance boosts. If you're on a budget, the i3 is your friend - there's not much that it won't do when it comes to running games. The i3 remains a far better gaming CPU than that found in most entry-level gaming packages advertised.

Step 4: Choose your Memory option
Step 5: Choose your Hard Drive option
Hard Drive (HDD)
Choose a standard hard drive in capacities of 1TB, 2TB or 3TB (7200 RPM).
Instead of a standard hard drive, choose a mega-fast Kingston Solid State Drive (SSD) in capacities of 240GB or 480GB, which reaches lightning read speeds up to 550 Mb/s & write speeds up to 500 Mb/s.
To achieve the warp speed of an SSD and the larger storage capacity of a standard hard drive, we recommend choosing one of our HHD/SSD combos. Your operating system and programs are run off the SSD, and your files are kept on the standard drive. It is important to note that as a custom service to you, we fully map these drives to work together seamlessly, so that you can conveniently keep using the default Windows 10 file structure as per normal.
Speed & reliablility are our number one priorities when it comes to hard drive brands. Statistically, Toshiba make the #1 most reliable hard drives in the world, so that's what we use. For our SSDs, our experience finds that Kingston is the most reliable, and very fast in real-world conditions.
Step 6: Choose your Graphics Card option
This step is the most important and the equation is simple: if you want to get the best performing gaming machine you can, get the best graphics card you can afford. The graphics card (GPU) does most of the heavy lifting for you when running games. We all have limited time and money, so if your budget allows you to spend more on one PC component than on others - make it the graphics card. Micro-analysing other component specs is usually not worth the investment when you can just - you guessed it - get a better graphics card.

Step 7: Choose your Optical Drive option
ASUS DVD Player / Burner
LG BluRay Player / Burner
These days most media is loaded via USB or download, so a DVD player/burner is not part of our base model. If you need it, add an excellent ASUS 24x DVD burner. If you want your PC to be a full-service entertainment centre, add a high quality LG BluRay burner (10x BDR; 16x DVDR).
Step 8: Choose your Case option

Step 9: Choose your Power Supply option
Choosing an appropriate power supply for your gaming PC is made easy at this step. Our base default Corsair 550w power supply will run any of the PC combinations made with this PC builder. However, it is a good idea to give yourself some headroom with the power supply, depending on the complexity of the PC you are making. Just work off a sliding scale from an entry-level PC all the way to a 'best-of-everything' PC. The more involved your PC is, the more power it will consume and therefore the greater the power supply wattage we recommend in order to run it comfortably.
All our power supply options meet the 80 Plus standard. For you technically-minded people out there - the 80 PLUS® performance specification requires power supplies to be 80% or greater energy efficient at 10, 20, 50 and 100% of rated load with a true power factor of 0.9 or greater. In layman's terms - they're officially certified as far more efficient than typical power supplies.
Step 10: Choose your Extra Cooling option
This option allows you to opt for two extra Cooler Master fans for additional air cooling.
A common question we get asked is "Do I need special cooling, such as water cooling?" You may do online research or talk to people and hear them talk about all sorts of cooling systems. On our site, we stick to and recommend air cooling via multiple standard silent fans. There are multiple reasons for this, and all of them have you - the customer - in mind.
Firstly, it's just not necessary. Elaborate cooling systems will achieve very little unless you are overclocking your system. Our rigs are hassle-free plug-n-play systems, not systems designed for overclocking, which we also believe has been relegated to realm of hobbyists (want to boost your system? Get a better graphics card....but this is another topic in itself). Really, it is mainly the aesthetic appeal that attracts most people to water cooling. All our gaming systems are built with components designed for gaming. At the forefront of this design consideration is heat distribution. So using gaming motherboards, gaming cases, gaming RAM etc engage important design features which encourage heat dissipation and air flow. Add to this the CPU, GPU and case fans that the systems already come with - plus the option of two more fans if you believe you will be using the rig intensely in a warm environment, and anything more elaborate than this becomes costly, risky and just just not worth it in our experience.
Secondly, water cooling systems and the like are expensive. If you are going to do it, you go high-end, otherwise it is just too risky. Water leaking all over your expensive components has always been an issue. Also, if you are willing to spend money on elaborate cooling, it is better to consider simply upgrading your processor and graphics card in the first place.
Thirdly, we avoid installing anything that is fiddly or temperamental. The last thing we want is for complicated and delicate parts to cause entire systems to be out of action for our customers while they get repaired or returned due to a shipping incident or a general fault. Keep it simple, keep it solid, keep it reliable - and you can keep playing!
Step 11: Choose your Monitor option
Viewsonic 24" 1ms Gaming
LED Back-lit LCD Monitor / Full HD (1920 x 1080) / 1ms Response Time / DisplayPort / HDMI / D-Sub
Asus 23.6" 1ms Gaming
LED Back-lit LCD Monitor / Full HD (1920 x 1080) / 1ms Response Time / HDMI / D-Sub / DVI
Samsung 27" 1ms Gaming
LED Back-lit LCD Monitor / Full HD (1920 x 1080) / 1ms Response Time / DisplayPort / HDMI / D-Sub
Asus 27" 1ms Gaming
LED Back-lit LCD Monitor / Full HD (1920 x 1080) / 1ms Response Time / HDMI / D-Sub / DVI
Choose a 24" or 27" inch 1 millisecond gaming monitor option by Viewsonic or Asus. We are so impressed by Viewsonic's gaming monitors that they are our choice for performance and value. Viewsonic has long been a pioneer in the AV technology industry, and now their gaming monitors are taking everyone by surprise. If you need proof of this - read the reviews! Prodigious Viewsonic or gaming giant Asus, you can't go wrong with any of our gaming monitor options - it comes down to personal preference.
Step 12: Choose your Keyboard & Mouse option
Keyboard & Mouse
The Devastator combo features blue LED backlighting (on/off), laser-etched & grip coated key caps, membrane design, multi-media keys & more.
The Coolermaster Octane combo features membrane construction, laser-etched gripped key caps, full LED backlighting (on/off) with your choice of 7 colours and an adjustable pulsating mode.
The Coolermaster Masterkeys Lite combo delivers elite tactile function and the brightest LED's, capable of 16.7 million colours. These are packaged with a string of other features within a minimalistic design, which is why we love it so much. Coolermaster really lets the performance do the talking with this release.
Many products look good in pictures but disappoint when you get them. That is never the case with Coolermaster, which is why they are our choice for keyboard & mouse combos. Coolermaster products are well-researched and well-constructed which makes for a tactile gaming advantage. Aesthetically, they are awesome.
Step 13: Choose your Speakers option
Our selection of stereo speakers comes from Logitech, who never let us down. Select one of these crisp sonic options according to your audio needs. We keep the options simple & compact here for hassle-free, plug-n-play use and ease of shipping.
Step 14: Choose your Headset option
More quality audio options from Logitech. We've tested these headset options and the result is total immersion in the game with great clarity and control. Gaming is a test of the senses - don't neglect the advantage of sensing the subtle audio cues programmed into the best releases.
Step 15: Choose your Software option
Microsoft Office Professional 2016
Get the latest & most complete suite of Professional Edition Microsoft Office programs for the lowly RRP of the Home Edition. Includes everything you need: Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Outlook, Publisher, Access & more. Fully installed by us - ready to go. Perpetual (never-ending) licence. RRP: $595 without installation.
Kaspersky Total Security 2016
It is critical to have strong internet security protection against viruses, trojans & hacker threats. We don't touch an internet browser without Kaspersky installed on our computers. This installation is for a 1 year licence. You can also use the serial number to protect your mobile or tablet for 1 year.
We offer two essential software programs on your PC - Microsoft Office Pro 2016 and Kaspersky Total Security. If selected, these programs are provided at a heavily discounted price and fully installed by us. We include the genuine product keys on your tax invoice for your records.
Step 16: Choose your Connectivity option
D-Link WiFi Adapter
300 Mhz, USB Powered
Logitech HD Webcam + Mic
720P HD, USB Powered
Bluetooth 4.0, USB Powered
Choose what you need from these USB-powered devices. If you need to connect wirelessly to your modem, you'll need the wi-fi adapter. The same goes with the Bluetooth adapter if you connect your devices with Bluetooth. Our choice for an HD webcam is Logitech, which also has a built-in microphone. You'll need this for Skype, video-link gaming etc.
Step 17: Choose your Warranty option
Your PC comes with a 2-year full hardware replacement warranty.
Our PCs are built to last - we care about our customers and reputation and as a business, we don't want the cost and inconvenience of returns. So it's simple: have the best and most reliable products in the first place to ensure maximum customer satisfaction.
If you believe something isn't working as it should, simply contact us and we will troubleshoot it with you in order to determine the problem. If any hardware is found to be faulty under normal usage conditions, we will without hesitation replace the faulty part. We want our customers to be happy.
