I've recently started to work from home so needed a PC. My old Surface Pro 3 wasn't going to cut it. The problem I have is that I live in a one bedroom apartment so don't have the luxury of a designated office. It was agreed with the girlfriend that I could set up a small home office in the corner of our living room. After a lot of research I found a desk that would fit the space available. It turned out that I had around 70cm of desk space to work with.
I enjoy a bit of Overwatch every now and then and my brother has a really nice PC that runs the game at 165hz on a QHD screen which looks absolutely awesome. I settled on the Dell Gaming S2417DG as it was QHD, G-Sync ready and was a 24" monitor measuring 53cm in width. The monitor looks great so far.
I didn't want my PC on the floor as I would end up kicking it all the time so I had to find a case that was under 15cm wide allowing for a bit of breathing room. I found the Node 202 which fits the bill at 7.5cm wide. If my build looks familiar its because it is. I pretty much copied some of the completed builds on this site.
I originally planned on buying a 1070 but just as I was about to pull the trigger the 1080ti was announced and 1080 prices were reduced by about £100 which fell in to my budget.
All of the other parts are pretty self explanatory. Scythe big shuriken 2 was horrible to put on and I had loads of issues getting a Kaby Lake CPU to work with the z170 Stinger. I had to use my brothers Sklyake chip to reach and update the bios. Lots of seemingly unnecessary messing around. I should have waited for the z270 Stinger.
My last obstacle was finding a keyboard and mouse that would fit in the limited space available. I went for the Razer Turret which is a lapboard really but I've really enjoyed using it so far. It fits the space perfectly.
