So you want to get in on PC gaming, but you're finding buying the right components is a bit expensive. After all you want the best of the best, not cheap components that will be obsolete in six months time. Graphics cards can be pricey, so rather than opting for the big names like NVIDIA or AMD, PNY has something to offer instead. This GeForce GTX 1070 graphics card costs £359.99 at Currys, and has 8GB of GDDR5 memory, 256-bit memory bandwidth, 1506 MHZ clock speed, 1920 CUDA cores, and NVIDIA GeSync. It's also VR ready, and comes with DVI, HDMI, and VGA output with enough power to deal with a triple-display setup.
With all our internet gadgets, and the relatively poor strength of the routers provided by our friendly neighbourhood ISP, your Wi-Fi probbaly isn't going to cut it. If not, you better invest in a range extender like this Netgear 11AC. It has 750MBps (300Mbps + 450Mbps - both of which can be combined) dual band Wi-Fi, Gigabit ethernet, and external antennas. So this should be a great addition to your home network set up. It's now 38% off at Amazon UK, which is selling it for just £27.99.
