Achilles - High Spec i5 Gaming PC
[ACHILLESV4.9]
Back Write Review
Seen an old review? All our systems are constantly evolving on a regular basis to accommodate new technology. When a new component comes out worthy of being included in one of our systems, it will generally replace the equivalent older component meaning our systems are updated rather than being discontinued. So if you see a system that has been around for a few years or perhaps a review that is a couple of years old then how that system was a couple of years ago will almost certainly be different to today's evolved version, so please don't think our systems could be several years out of date and contain out of date components.

I shopped around quite a few different sites while looking for a new gaming pc. There's a lot of good ones out there, but for my particular needs UKGC ended up having the best choice in upgrades and sidegrades for the system that I wanted to own. I started with the "basic" Achilles i5 model, and ...FULL REVIEW
