need to get operational in France ASAP

Post by Sparky » Tue Jul 23, 2019 11:52 pm

Silk and Merlin and others advised me on Whatsapp of good companies in Great Britain that sell high-performance gaming desktop computers but that's waaaay back in the message feed. I want to get closed look cooling and particular features, pick my GPU and chip set, etc. European companies that speak English are fine.

Any suggestions?

Oooh what did you go for?
In selecting the motto... 'all for one and one for all'... I have done so because it expresses what should be the creed to every Fighter Pilot. Never forget that you are an essential cog in the wheel, and if you break or fail it will let down your brother pilots, and the grimness of war allows for no such weakness.

MSI Z390 GAMING Plus: [PROCESSOR]: Intel Core I9-9900K clocked at 8x3.60GHz (8x5.00GHz Turbo) with liquid cooling Watercooling ---- [GRAPHICS CARD]: Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080Ti 11GO ---- [MOTHERBOARD]: MSI Z390 GAMING Plus ---- [MEMORY]: 32GB RAM DDR4 3000Mhz (64GB max) ---- [HARD DISK 1]: 480GB SSD ---- [HARD DISK 2]: 3000GO ---- [POWER SUPPLY] : 700W 80+ ---- [OPTICAL DRIVE]: DVD / CD player / writer ---- [PC HOUSING]: Zalman Z11 Plus HF1 ---- [WIFI]: Included ---- [OPERATING SYSTEM ]: Windows 10 Pro 64 Bit - [SOUND CARD]: Built-in 7.1 HD Audio --- [CONNECTIONS]: HDMI | Displayport | 6 x USB ports 3 | 4 x USB ports 2 | High Speed ​​Ethernet (RJ45) | 8 x audio jack ports

The liquid cooling was important to me but it doesn't say if it's a sealed system.

I ordered an Ethernet cable, a wireless QWERTY keyboard and mouse and a monitor. I have a new Thrustmaster Warthog HOTAS joystick and throttle quadrant and will order another button box.

I brought my Rift with me. This system is overkill for my Rift but can power my new headset that should be shipped in mid-August and I'll carry that headset back and forth to France. My wifi internet speed here is 33Mbps but may be faster once I connect via cable.
