    Personally I'd say save the $$ for your own build mate, that's going to run like a PS4.

    that is about as cheap as you would want , will run Ac single screen fine , will also run most modern triple a titles on medium settings at 1080p

    Thank you for the effort there mate. Much appreciated only about 100 more than the ps5. Looks the way to go. Could probably go up to 1100 at this point in time.

    Unless you want it now wait until AMD releases its new stuff later this month.
    However if you want one now then spend the rest on the best graphics card you can , 5700xt or 2070 super if you can fit that in . If you want VR or Triple screens 2080 super is the minimum you would want . But by this time next month both of those cards will probably drop in price by quite bit as well as that cpu. Now is not really a great time to build a new pc from scratch. Its a bit like buying a brand new ps4 with the ps5 due out soon so not a lot of value in it atm.

    Ok got it working this time, that's it right now but I'm moving the radiator onto the front tonight and adding the new fans below to the top and adding a second nvme (pcie4 to go with the new mobo) I've also got an Aorus Master RTX 3080 coming. When that arrives I'll sell the gigabyte to get my $$ back on that.

    Did you buy a 3080, then bought another 3080, to sell your first 3080?

    I ordered at several places but only paid at one. I then got an email from a small store in Sydney that I'd ordered with saying that they had a different card available and so I paid for that and pulled the trigger but kinda regretted it after I thought about it a bit as I was leaning towards an Aorus build. So I'm left with a paid preorder at PLE for an Aorus Master. Looking at the scalping going on for these cards in confident that I can get my money back on what I paid for the gigabyte.

    Hmmmm, so he's saying that mine is installed best as it is right now then though possibly better if I have the tubes at the bottom rather than the side of the pump. Well I guess I have to find somewhere to put these fans

    So, I've just had two old laptops die in quick succession and had to get a replacement anyway, so figured I'll try out a gaming laptop. Ended up settling on the Dell G5 15 so hoping this will do for ACC and I'll probably also try out the original AC with modded content. Maybe some other titles in the future. For now will just be hooked up to 37" 1080p 60Hz screen I use for the PS4 so should run fine. It's not the beast of a desktop PC that I'd prefer, but probably more versatile and suitable for my needs now.

    Specs:
    Dell G5 15, i7-10750H, RTX 2070 8GB GDDR6 Max-Q, 16GB DDR4-2933MHz, 512GB M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD, 15.6" 1920x1080 144Hz LCD
