Great gaming quality
The PC Specialist Vulcan Tyrant II is a middle to top end gaming PC for new PC gamers who may not be sure be sure how to build a gaming PC . At the same it does not pull any punches when it comes to gaming performance. The Vulcan Tyrant II combines the power of an AMD FX-4300 Quad CORE CPU (clocked at 3.8GHz) and a 3GB Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 GPU with DirectX 12 support, so you will have no problem running your favourite GPU heavy games at 1080p and 1440p resolutions.

The power of the NVIDIA Pascal Series
The 3GB Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 graphics card included with the Vulcan Tyrant II is part of the Pascal GPU family. These graphics cards are designed from the ground up for superior performance and power efficiency. They are created using ultrafast FinFET transistor technology, and use DirectX 12 features to give you smoothest, fastest, and most power efficient gaming experience. The 3GB edition has more video memory compared to other cards in its price range, giving you solid performance at 1440p and 1080p resolution. This is a great graphics card for someone who wants good performance at high resolution without breaking the bank.

Start off the right way
The Vulcan Tyrant II has everything you need to get started and have a gaming computer ready to go. The only other things you’ll need are a keyboard, mouse, and monitor. Inside the PC itself you get an ASUS M5897 R2.0 motherboard, bundled with 8GB of HyperX DDR3 RAM to run your games smoothly. You don’t need to worry about storage as you have a 2TB hard drive inside the box ready to store all your great games, movies, and work. This computer also includes an internal WiFi adapter, so you can place it anywhere in your house with a signal.

The good thing about the Maplin exclusive PC Specialist computers is that they are not using any proprietary hardware or software. The computer you buy is fully upgradeable in the future if you ever want to adjust the RAM, GPU, hard drive, and any other components. It also comes with a 3-year standard manufacturer’s warranty, so if something turn out to be defective or faulty you can get it sorted easily.

*Please note, the cd/dvd driver is not included and will have to be bought separately. 

Rated 1 out of 5 by from WARNING: no DVD-drive I was most disapointed upon examaning the Vulcan to find it does not include a CD/DVD drive--had i not already possessed an external drive I would be entirerly unable to play several of my favourite, CD-dependant game. For this price and spec of machine I find it unbelievable that a CD/DVD drive does not come as standard.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from good spec but VERY noisy fans I bought this for my son for Christmas. With no programmes running, and directly from startup, the fans are REALLY noisy. Any ideas as to what can be done?
