Build a com­plete 4K PC

Custom PC - - CONTENTS -

In un­der two years, the price of 4K-ca­pa­ble kit has crum­bled. Not only has the price of a 4K mon­i­tor plum­meted from three grand to well un­der £500, but even the re­quired graph­ics equip­ment no longer costs thou­sands of pounds. In fact, thanks to Nvidia’s Maxwell ar­chi­tec­ture, £562 will buy you the whole graph­ics sub­sys­tem, and it won’t eat your PSU for lunch ei­ther.

Thanks to all these plung­ing prices, with the right com­po­nent choices you can now build an all-singing, all­danc­ing, 4K gam­ing PC for well un­der £2,000, and the price even in­cludes the mon­i­tor, SLI graph­ics and Win­dows 8.1. In this is­sue, we’ll show you ex­actly what you need, how to put it to­gether, and how to fine-tune and over­clock your new PC for the best per­for­mance.
