046: Hello, computer

This episode takes more of a ‘resource’ form, as we share some tips & tricks for getting started building a PC for gaming. We cut through some of the aspects that we think are unimportant, and share some shortcuts for saving time and money.

There’s a lot of resources out there on the Internet, but we like:

  • Scan – for buying components (and pre-builds) in the UK
  • Toms Hardware – for reviews
  • bit-tech.net – for reviews, especially peripherals and modifications
  • Hexus – for their partnership with Scan (easy to find reviews)
  • Anandtech – for their deep-dives into new product ranges
  • The Wirecutter – for their ‘just buy this one’ approach to components and peripherals. Look under ‘Electronics’.
