Prepped & Ready for Gaming - Overclockers UK Launch the Spectra Pre-built PC Range

Systems integrator Overclockers UK have a long history of offering a huge selection of configurable systems from modest up to titanic performance potential, and as such have catered to hobbyists and enthusiasts of any budget. That being said, a configurable system is often a daunting prospect resulting in plenty of decision paralysis, particularly for the uninitiated. To cater to this caucus of customers they've launched the Spectra range - pre-built systems with fixed components that are divided into neat price and performance bands.

Each of the six systems within the Spectra range have been tested to offer comfortable gaming experiences with a variety of games appropriate to the budget and component selection, allowing any level of gamer to find a great fit for their particular needs. They all arrive with 3 years parts and labour warranty for additional piece of mind, and with Windows 11 pre-installed to side-step any OS upgrade pestering Microsoft might indulge in.

Arranged through the gamut of performance

Spectra's entry-level system is dubbed 'Crimson', and it's been optimised for titles with a relatively small performance footprint. Think League of Legends and Valorant, or of course the plethora of legacy titles available on Steam today. It leverages AMD's Ryzen 5600G APU to maintain smooth and consistent frame rates.

'Amber' is the next step up, intended for games with just a little bit more oomph required. OCUK highlight CG:GO, Minecraft and Roblox here. It's the first of the range to be equipped with a discrete GPU, in this instance the almost tailor-made for 1080p gaming NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050.

'Jade' and 'Celeste' (yes, celeste is a colour) push things to the mid-range to allow for performance appropriate for popular AAA titles. Examples include Grand Theft Auto V and Forza Horizon 5, but also extend to demanding online multiplayer games such as Battlefield 2042. Resolution targets range between 1080p and 1440p, and it's notable that these systems will be able to take advantage of DLSS to upscale to that latter resolution with good quality settings.

One from the top is 'Azure', your entry-point into 4K gaming. Those who ideally want o hit 200+ fps in games at 1080p/1440p will also be looking at this particular system, as will gamers with a strong incentive to stream gameplay.

Finally, the tip-top Spectra is 'Indigo', for anyone who wants to play the most demanding games at high resolutions with all the eye-candy turned up to maximum. Boasting high-end Intel and NVIDIA components, it'll be a rig to be reckoned with at any LAN event.
