    Why review a gaming rig and not do a thorough benchmark of games ?

    Can't really review it until VR titles show up.

    But still, splashing out all that money on a 980ti rig just before the 14nm cards come out, that doesn't seem wise.

    Re: DinoPC BX1

    The layout looks a bit odd? I like the inverted mb. Looks like the radiator at the bottom is exhausting air out of the bottom of the case? I don't like the PSU being at the top and I'm not a fan of using a PSU to exhaust the top case air as this implies they expect the PSU fan must be on all the time, when trends these days are to have PSUs that turn off or spin down their fans to make a quieter system. Looks to me like the case overall has negative rather than positive pressure, so dust is going to get dragged in through the open grill back?

    I'd stay away from DinoPC. I bought a laptop from them barely 18 months ago. The screen failed with a year, and spent the next 3/4 months getting it rectified. Had to send it back 5 times due to their incompetence. Their customer service is bad.

    Re: DinoPC BX1

    £3,799 for a machine with out of date technology. £3,799!!!!

    The parts come to approx £2500 for a self build - then allowing another £200 for custom bits that you can't buy off the shelf (mostly the cooling system & the bespoke parts) and another £200-£300 for a warranty, and you are at something like £3k cost price.

    Given that the CPU is old tech (its Haswell - strange to not have a Skylake in here), and the GPUs are about to be replaced too (pascal out in a few months), and the £800ish markup they have on this, I can't think why you'd buy one.
