I will soon be buying a computer from pcspecialist.co.uk.

It is for gaming, some video editing, and general use. Will be storing a fair few video files, though they will be to and throw from external drives.

The quote is £2333(uk). Don't really want to go any higher. I already have a 4k monitor, and Windows 10 pro retail.

Thanks in advance.

Looks awesome. Wish it was mine!

With all that extra RAM, you might want to look into a RAM Drive for extra speedy video editing.

Not sure how big your video files will be, but SoftPerfect makes free software to create any size Ram Drive you need, up to your available memory

Thanks for the tip PanickyD. I had never heard of a ram drive, but seems useful. The one in your link doesn't seem to support Windows 10 though.

One other question I have, is it worth getting a gaming keyboard & mouse?

"Worth" is kind of a personal preference thing, I guess. I get by fine with a decent mouse and a lighted keyboard, but I'm just a casual gamer.

But an avid player might appreciate some of the features on the good stuff.

I have added a fairly cheap gaming keyboard & mouse, as I go through periods of heavy gaming. Thanks for the advice.

Can you tell us exactly what gaming keyboard & mouse you bought?

"gaming" stuff can be pretty horrible or pretty awesome. Usually if they are cheap, they are pretty horrible.
