Hello, could anyone recommend a good build from a good PC gaming site in the UK like PCSpecialist, Overclockers, CyberPower, awdIT, ebuyer, scan.

I'm looking for an Intel (preferably 12th gen) and Nvidia graphics card.

Thank you.

I see thank you. If I was to go with this monitor, do you know what sort of build I should aiming for and also the best place to buy a prebuilt PC.

I'm not sure what company offers the best prebuilts tbh other than you want one that allows you to see what motherboards and psu's are available as in make and model and you want a case with good airflow. I'd be looking at either the 12400F or 12700F paired with a B660 board.

Would you recommend any of these two builds that I have found on scan. I think they are both similar but one has the 3070rtx and the other has the 3080 for around 300 extra.

There is also this build I found buy ebuyer which looks like a good deal but it uses a 3060Ti, which I'm not sure if this card is futureproof.

1st link has a 550w psu (not enough juice for that card), no mention of make & model of psu nor the board.

2nd link no mention of make & model of psu and it uses an H10 board which is a no go.

3rd link (ebuyer) doesn't list any of the specs other than the cpu not to mention that case is a hotbox .... no mesh front panel = horrible airflow

Thanks so much. Do you know how much this would be to have an i7 processor?

The specs I chose for the build were these, i didn't select a cooler though because I didn't know which to choose.
    • CiT Crossfire Gaming ARGB PC Case
    • Gigabyte B660M GAMING X DDR4
    • INTEL i7-12700K CPU
    • 32GB Corsair Vengeance LPX 3000MHz (2x16GB) Memory
    • Corsair RM850x 80+ Gold Modular Power Supply
    • Nvidia RTX 3070 Graphics Card [2FAN/SMALL]
    • 1TB Samsung 970 EVO PLUS M.2 NVME SSD
    • No Hard Drive
I got a total price of £1,559.95 which seems oddly low so I don't know if I did something wrong or there's something I'm missing with the build.

That board won't handle an i7 ... especially an unlocked one.
