OK, have bought a Chillblast Fusion Bandit but the delivery company seems unable to deliver it until the middle of next week, despite ordering it next day delivery on Monday. I have gone a week without a desktop and it is doing my head in.
Alternatively, I can walk into PC world tomorrow and get an ASUS Republic of Gamers G11CD Gaming for £40 less than the Chillblast- reduced by £225 from original extortionate price.
To a novice, the specs seem largely completely the same aside from the graphics card. The Chillblast has NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB Graphics Card, while the ASUS is 2GB.
Could someone knowledgeable please look at the specs and advice on if the ASUS has other benefits and which they would purchase please!

If both specs are true then I wouldn't hesitate to buy the PC World's system but ask specifically what the PSU's wattage output is first. You may have to upgrade. Also accept the one year warranty but state your consumer rights and don't buy extended warranty.
My humble opinion only.
If you go by my advice it is your responsibility and not mine. Remember to cancel your order, or accept, with Chillblast as soon as you've made a decision.
