The Best Gaming PCs

With hundreds of components and thousands of possible combinations, choosing a new gaming PC can be a difficult process. This chart will help you by suggesting which NVIDIA GeForce GTX graphics card and PC is right for you.

By experience we mean the quality of the graphics and the frame rate that you will experience. A fast frame rate is crucial as it means the on-screen action is smooth and seamless, while a slow frame rate means the on-screen action is jerky and irregular, making aiming weapons impossible. Also bear in mind what resolution gaming monitor you want to game on - a higher resolution monitor makes games look sharper and clearer - but requires a more powerful graphics card. The following table shows what quality settings and resolutions the most popular NVIDIA GeForce GTX graphics cards have been optimised for.

Graphics Card Best For Optimum Resolution
GTX 1050 Online games such as DOTA 2, League of Legends, Minecraft, World of Warcraft 1920 x 1080 (Full HD)
GTX 1050Ti High quality settings in all games 1920 x 1080 (Full HD)
3GB GTX 1060 Maximum quality settings in all games 1920 x 1080 (Full HD)
6GB GTX 1060 High quality settings in all games 2560 x 1440 (QHD)
GTX 1070 Maximum quality settings in all games 2560 x 1440 (QHD)
GTX 1070 Ti Maximum quality settings in all games 2560 x 1440 (QHD)
GTX 1080 Maximum quality settings in all games 2560 x 1440 (QHD)
or 3840 x 2160 (4K)
RTX 2070 Maximum quality settings in all games 2560 x 1440 (QHD)
or 3840 x 2160 (4K)
GTX 1080 Ti Maximum quality settings in all games 2560 x 1440 (QHD)
or 3840 x 2160 (4K)
RTX 2080 Maximum quality settings in all games 2560 x 1440 (QHD)
or 3840 x 2160 (4K)

GEFORCE GTX VR READY

WHY BUY BUILT?

Professionally Built PCs vs Self-Built

Anyone can build a PC, so what really makes the difference between any old PC and a 3XS PC? For starters, our team has been designing and building PCs for more than 20 years, so we have a huge amount of experience in building highly reliable systems that deliver the most performance for your budget. These are the benefits you receive when buying a professionally built 3XS system versus building a system yourself.

No Compatibility Headaches

It can take weeks to research the right combination of components, not just to ensure you get the most bang for your buck but to minimise the chance of one component being incompatible with another. Whether you buy a system from our configurator or a custom spec system our engineers will do all this hard work for you, ensuring that when your system is delivered it performs flawlessly.

Intensively Tested

Building a PC only takes a few hours, but installing all the software and making sure that everything is configured properly and that your software runs stably takes up a huge amount of time. By ordering a 3XS system our engineers take this painful process away, as all our systems undergo a strenuous Quality Control procedure which includes updating Windows, installing the latest drivers and motherboard BIOS. Overclocked systems receive an additional 24 hour burn-in test to ensure stability.

Peace of Mind

Unfortunately PC components do occasionally fail, and when this happens if you’ve built your PC yourself you’re on your own. However, with a professionally built Scan 3XS system you’re no longer alone. Our technical support team is available 7 days a week, from 9am to 10pm Mon - Fri, 10am to 6pm on Saturdays and 10am to 4pm on Sundays. Click here for more info on how to get technical support for your 3XS system.

If our support team is unable to fix your system remotely and it’s still under warranty we’ll either send out an engineer to visit your home or office or repair it or have it repaired in our state of the art factory in Lancashire.

A Work of Art

We don't just build PCs in our state-of-the-art factory, we craft them. For instance, we route and tidy all the cables around the sides of the case. This not only makes your PC look great and easier to upgrade in the future, but eases airflow through the case resulting in a cooler and quieter PC. In addition, we can customise your PC for you, not just the components inside but also its appearance, so if you fancy a PC in an unusual shape or colour we look forward to hearing from you.

Widely Acclaimed

Our 3XS PCs have won hundreds of awards in the press from publications such as Custom PC, Develop3D, Expert Reviews, HEXUS, PC Gamer and PC Pro. In addition 3XS has won Custom PC’s annual Dream PC competition every year it has run since 2007. You can read all our reviews here plus customer reviews on the configurator.

Rapid Delivery

Sometimes you just need a system right now. Maybe your existing system has kicked the bucket or you’ve found that your old workhorse can’t cope with the latest game or application you just bought. F-series systems are pre-built and tested in our factory, so can be collected same day or delivered next-day to your home or office.

Warranty & Technical Support

Another key difference is that all Scan 3XS Custom Series PCs are covered by our Premium 3 Year Warranty. This means that if your system develops a fault in its first year we can send an engineer to your home or office to repair it. In the remaining two years of the warranty we'll still repair or replace any faulty parts, but do this from our state of the art factory in Lancashire.

Reviews
3XS Performance, Overclocked Intel Core i7 8700K "Coffee Lake", 16GB DDR4, 8GB EVGA GTX 1080 SC, 250GB SSD, 2TB, Win 10 is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Gaming/Media PC This good looking PC runs Steam games such as Squad & Post Scriptum on Epic settings giving a good 60- 80 fps, lower to Good settings and your looking at 100-120 fps. The fans and liquid cooling keep everything at good temps, the fans can be a bit loud at full blast but rather that than overheating. The case looks good with easy access through the side smoked tempered glass panel which also looks good with the RGB LEDs light strip inside, programmable from a desktop control panel. Dust control is easy with removable washable filter screens top front and bottom, although the front mesh panel seems quite hard to remove, could do with easier pop off fixings. Love this PC, good value, excellent build quality, couldn't be happier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flawless! The PC has ran like a dream, a well made piece of kit put together with care and attention. Everything I chucked at it has run smoothly, example - Rust, TWWII, Destiny 2, FarCry 5. All have run on max specs with good FPS. Highly recommend this PC and this company. Very professional service and they even give you a little start up box with mousepad, mug and cable tidier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super fast and looks good I absolutely love this computer- I was PC-less before I bought this and a 28" Acer Predator 4k monitor to go with. Whilst that means I don't have much to compare it with, it's extremely fast- had no problems with games on ultra high resolution, and it looks good too with the RGB lights and glass side panel. Was thinking of buying this for a few months before getting around to it- now wish I'd bought it straight away! Customer service was excellent, as was delivery!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant performance. Very happy with my new PC, the performance is excellent and when I had a few minor issues Scan were very good at quickly sorting them over the phone. A little noisier than I expected but not an issue and temperatures seem to be kept low as a result. The system was also very good value compared to other retailers.

Questions & Answers

It mentions ASUS Wi-Fi, is that a seperate Wifi Card?

Wondering if this has wi-fi capability. Or if it is only for LAN.
Asked by: thirdrepublic
It does have wifi capability, in the box is the wifi antennas which just need attaching at the rear of the case.

CPU Boost?

Hello, You have this models CPU listed as "CPU Speed 4.8 GHz and it's CPU Boost/Turbo Speed at 4.8 GHz" Is this a typo? I mean if it's base speed is the same as it's boost speed is there even a boost? Apologies if this is logical to you or whoever answers but I'm not a tech minded person, just trying to understand before I make a purchase.
Asked by: DannyUk
Hi DannyUK. I’m not sure about the actual boost speed, my understanding is it would be 4.7 GHz. However, with the overclock this system comes with the CPU will always run at 4.8Ghz but without it, the boost speed will only be at more demanding times and the rest of the time it will run slower. Hope this helps.

Hi scan , is it the akasa £8.99 rgb strip thats in this ? so i could daisy chain more up to it ? thanks

Asked by: David777
Hi, I can confirm that the current RGB strip installed in this system is LN73669, which means you will be able to daisy chain more RGB strips into the system if wanted. I hope this helps. Kid Regards,
