All of our systems are built to your requirements - we offer these specifications to show examples of what is possible at a particular price point, essentially our serving suggestion of what works well on a particular budget. Ideally, fill out our system quote request form to get a bespoke computer for your needs.

Crafter is the perfect entry-level gaming PC - great value but capable of running FPS games including CSGO at over 100fps and smooth gameplay in Battlefield 1 at medium-high settings.

Key thing here is providing the best balance of performance and value, and our testing found the i3-8100 to be a great value quad core processor, even performing slightly above the graphics card performance, allowing for an ideal platform to upgrade a graphics card again in a couple of years.

The graphics card is a GeForce GTX 1050 2GB which is great for FPS gaming, and is enough to at least run every current AAA game with even the most demanding playable, albeit at medium detail settings. With a 500W Cooler Master power supply, there's scope to replace the graphics card with a more powerful model. Again, looking to easy expandability, Crafter has 8GB of RAM but with 2 slots left open allowing expansion to 16GB in future.

As a basis of storage we recommend a 240GB Solid State Drive which dramatically improves system start time and gives lightning-fast responsiveness when loading applications or games. Further, there's room in the case for extra storage (either additional Solid State or Hard Disk Drives) to be added to compliment the original SSD. Why do we choose a small fast disk to start rather than a big slow disk? The performance difference it makes to general system use is huge, and crucially it's much easier to add additional storage (such as a hard disk) later, versus having to clone an existing large disk to a smaller fast disk should you want to speed things up in the future. If you would prefer to start out with the larger but slower option of a 1TB Hard Disk then this can be changed at similar cost - see the Configure tab to remove 2.5" SSD and add 3.5" HDD.

And just look at the casing - with a full clear side and 3 white illuminated fans, it looks smart and purposeful, keeping your parts cool. An RGB model is available with colour selectable fans as an option, see the configure tool for choices.

Light up the night

A full view clear acrylic window shows off the system workings, with 3 white LED fans allowing a view of the components even at night time. We all know by now a glowing case is worth at least 5 fps. Want more light? Just choose to add an RGB strip in the configure tool or pick the RGB case model for more colour options if white isn't your thing.

 

Great value graphics with room to spare

GTX 1050 2GB is great value - fantastic in less demanding games (CSGO, MMO games etc) but still powerful enough to at least run the latest AAA titles and higher end FPS games. And at a later date, there's enough space, cooling and power supply headroom to drop in a new card later, pretty much any graphics card currently on sale up to £400 price point is a drop-in fit, so you can easily bring the graphics performance up a notch or three in future.

 

Want to splash some colour?

Our default spec of Crafter is with white illumination, but if you want to throw some colours around your system, we have two options to help you find your shade! Want the front colours changeable? Change the case from Luminosity to Luminosity RGB in the configure option to get colour selectable front fans, or if you want a wash of colour in your window, then add an RGB LED Strip to fill the side of the system with light.

Performance and Specification Tailored to your requirement and budget

* All of our Gaming PCs are designed and built to order

* We check the games you want to run before making a recommendation

* Visit the System Quote form to recieve a system designed exactly for you.

Clear Pricing and Good Value with no sneaky add-ons

* Systems are priced ready to operate and include genuine Windows 10 license and media
(although you can remove this if preferred)

* No 'bait' advertising - there's no 'from' and 'up to' in our system quotes and blurb.
(we show a price and a specification, without any sneaky tricks to lure you in)

* Choose the extras you need such as keyboard / mouse / screen / wireless adapter.
(or use what you already have if applicable)

A Clean and Thoughtful Build

* All of our systems have neat cabling for good airflow, ease of access, and good visuals.

* We keep expandibility in mind - choosing components to allow future expansion such as additional memory slots and power supplies higher than required to allow future expansion.

* Prompt Build times - Some firms take 2 weeks to build your PC or only offer faster services at a cost premium. For all but the most specialised builds, we complete your order within 3-5 days, at no extra cost.

* BIOS and firmwares updated to latest revisions and motherboard settings configured for optimal performance. All settings noted on a log sheet provided with your new PC.

Software - Just Plug and Play

* We don't install trials of software that you don't ask for.

* Systems are partitioned to provide a recovery area, and user data folders configured to the largest drive.

* Tell us your favourite web browser, which applications and game clients you use and we'll have them installed for you.

* Where possible, we'll copy installation files for a few of your favourite games on to the system, so no long downloads at home - just sign in and play!

Warranty - Peace of Mind

* All systems have 36 hours of stress testing during assembly, plus functional tests such as checking ports.

* We provide 3 years Return to Base Hardware warranty (Labour) and provide the parts warranty for the length provided by the manufacturer of that part. Most peripheral parts (screen, keyboard etc) are covered for 2 years (as are hard disk) and other internal components are mostly covered for 3 years. We'll confirm details of this with your order. We don't charge extra for providing this warranty length which other retailers mark as optional.

* Small upgrades are fitted for free for the life of your PC - that is, adding storage, memory or graphics card. Just pay for the part and have installation carried out right away in-store. (charges apply for larger jobs such as disk cloning or motherboard upgrades only, but are reduced for existing system customers)

* No seals - you're free to upgrade or change parts without affecting your warranty.

(of course, excluding physical damage caused through mis-handling)
