Custom Desktop PC - but not self built

Yet again, it seems like I haven't posted in forever! So, in my latest post I will be talking about my custom desktop PC. Now, I didn't build this myself as I was on a budget - however it is a brand new PC. I purchased it in March and it arrived two weeks later. I purchased it from AWD-IT. Now, first things first, when I take you through the specifications you are going to notice one thing very clearly. It has an AMD CPU. This is something that I would never have considered for a brand new computer in the past, however I had to due to the budget that I was on. In addition to the AMD CPU, it also has an AMD Radeon GPU. Clearly a very AMD based machine then, isn't it. Specs: AMD Ryzen 5 2600X 6 Core CPU 16GB of  Memory AMD Radeon  RX580 from PowerColor with 8GB of VRAM. 512GB SSD 1TB HD (taken from my old desktop PC) So, how does it feel to be using a brand new desktop PC? Well, firstly, I have never actually owned one before. I have owned brand new laptops, but

Keep yourself busy at the weekend - travel

Hello all. I'd like to tell you what I have started to do at the weekend because it may be useful for you, too, if you often find yourself bored on a Saturday because you have so much time and you are not sure what to do. With me, it partly arises from the fact that at the weekend I am at my dads and when I am at my dads I do not have access to my desktop PC and therefore there are a lot of things that I am unable to do because I don't want to do these things on my laptop for a number of reasons. Anyway, what I have been doing for the last few months is travelling. I have been going places on weekends for a while now, but it was a thing that I did every few months instead of once or twice a month. Over the last 6 months or so I have been to new places and I have also been back to places that I have been to before but hadn't been to for absolutely ages. So, where have I been? Bristol London Portsmouth Brighton Crawley Leamington Spa Some of these places are,

Happy New Year

Well, this is my first post in quite a while and I would like to wish you all a happy new year. A lot happened in 2018 for me, from completing my A Levels and leaving school, getting my first job, staying in a hotel for the first time and visiting new places such as London, Portsmouth and Brighton. I have had my ups and downs in 2018, as I am sure a lot of us have, however 2019 is a new year and it is time to start a new slate and see what 2019 brings us. I hope that 2019 has just as many good memories for me as as 2018 has, and I hope this is the case for you to. We have just one year left of this decade and it feels as though 2010 and 2011 were just yesterday - but they were 9 and 8 years ago respectively. This decade has flown by and as it's the last year of the decade it would be great to make the most of the last year and make as many great memories as possible. So, I wish you all a happy new year. I also hope that you have all had a fantastic Christmas too.
