    Conclusion : the Asus is a bit better because it doesn't have the fan noise that the X35 has. (He also doesn't mention the built in head phone dac on Asus).

    Annoyingly he says unless there's a big price difference by a couple of hundred dollars, buy the Asus. There's a fricking 600 quid price difference between the 2 currently here!

    Very very annoying, I want the Asus, at the current X35 price damn it.

    right.... next question on the agenda for my PC gaming loving friends.....

    Best chair? I've not fallen for this ridiculous gaming chair I bought a while ago from Secret labs... it's shit quite frankly. I want a really good quality high backed proper office chair. Any tips?

    Really? I find it absolutely awful. Giant big hard thing with very little support or ways to customise. I'll never buy a gaming chair again.

    Gamers Nexus did a good video on 'gaming' chairs. The short version is, they all get made in the same factories in China and are all about looks rather than ergonomics. They conclude that the vast majority of them are cheap, nasty and bad for you.

    They do recommend some decent office chairs at the end, though not sure if you'll be able to source in the UK as they are very US centric.

    @Technoishmatt how much did you research? I've grown to hate spending my life researching and reading reviews... I want to just trust you and buy this one lol. Did you find any decent sites that recommend it? It certainly looks bloody nice.

    Shit out of luck on GPUs right now tbh.

    Best bet is to sign up to a stock alert discord.
