I've decided to return to the pc fold after years in console wilderness and am looking at a pc primarily for gaming, home use, photo editing and media.
I've ordered the following 3XS system from scan and I was looking for advice for tweaks. Slightly concerned his spec will be a little loud as the Mrs will be watching tv in the same room, was also wondering about a second Ssd for games with the os on the first together with any heavy duty editing software...any ideas appreciated....
