About ready to push the button on this Digital art/ gaming pc.

Kraggle-Rock

38 months ago

Hi all. Everyone was a massive help when I was putting this together before, just about got enough funds to go ahead but wanted to see if there were any suggestions on where I can make a few savings. I'm not fussed about the PC looking pretty as it will be hiding under a desk for the most part. also need to think about a monitor, have a keyboard and mouse that will do fine for now so don't need to worry about that for the moment.

Will be used for equal parts gaming and digital art (mostly adobe photoshop and illustrator)

Thanks again

Edit: bit stuck on the monitor for this. any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
