Just bought my first house and had room for a desk so decided to build my first ever desktop PC instead of just buying a new laptop.
I will literally only be using it for web browsing and MS Office applications as I don’t have the time to dedicate to PC gaming at the moment but I decided to give myself a £1000 budget so that I could build something ‘decent’.
Overall I’m really happy with the result, it’s way more powerful than I need which is perfect and should mean I won’t have to spend time and money upgrading if I start using it for more in the future.
Note: The desk setup is how it's going to be permanently now, the TV was only used to test whilst I was waiting for the monitor and desk to arrive.
UPDATE: 05/01/2018 - Brought the Sonos speaker up from the living room to add to the setup a little, it's a bit of a pain because I can only stream using the app but it's better than nothing.
UPDATE: 05/01/2018 - Overclocked to 3.7 GHz @ 1.19375V and seems to be stable using Real Bench. Idle temps are low 30's and peak temp during 15 min stress test was 67.5.
