Desktop PC Care Plan

A Care Plan protects your computer if it develops a fault or breaks down, even as the result of a mishap. You also benefit from a computer healthcheck every year..

There are two ways to pay for your plan - monthly or fixed term. Paying monthly means you’ll only pay a small amount each month for as long as you want, whereas paying a fixed term is ideal if you just want to pay once and know your product is protected from then on.

Please note, customers selecting a monthly Care Plan will have the payment debited from their chosen card every month

Product details

Incredibly powerful and featuring high-end components throughout, the PC Specialist Vortex Hailstorm Gaming PC delivers enthusiast-level gaming right out of the box.

High-end processing

The Vortex Hailstorm is powered by a quad-core Intel® Core™ i7-4770 Processor. Featuring a blistering 3.9 GHz TurboBoost clock speed, a vast 8 MB memory cache and eight-way multithreading, it far exceeds the recommended requirements of most modern games.

It also makes light work of specialist software and tasks, making it the perfect processor for all demanding gaming, creative and everyday activities.

Gaming graphics


An NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770 delivers an impressive graphics performance and is capable of running many of today's most popular and graphically intensive games at maximum graphics settings without compromising on FPS.

With 1536 CUDA cores, 2 GB of GDDR5 memory and impressive features including two anti-aliasing modes, GPU Boost 2.0 and NVIDIA Keplar architecture for optimal Direct X performance, it displays games as the developers intended.

Future-proof expansion


Along with today's biggest and best games, the Vortex Hailstorm is ready for the future thanks to two free PCIe slots. You could even add a second GTX 770 card at a later date for an incredible SLI graphics set up capable of mind-blowing images at exaggerated resolutions and frame rates.

Serious storage


File storage comes courtesy of a large 1 TB hard drive that offers plenty of space for game data, media and software.

Supporting this is a 120 GB solid-state drive. An ideal size for using a dedicated OS drive or for installing your favourite games on, whatever it runs will benefit from greatly improved load and save times.

Built for gamers


From a Corsair PSU and Asus motherboard to 8 GB of Kingston RAM, PC Specialist computers only include components gamers would choose themselves.

And with a three-year labour warranty on top of the 1-year parts guarantee, you can expect high-end and reliable enthusiast-level gaming for the foreseeable future.

Gaming with Windows


The Vortex Hailstorm features Windows 8.1. The perfect OS for serious gaming, it's pared back and less demanding on resources than previous editions to let your components work on what's important.

The start screen now features Live Tiles, handy windows into your favourite programs and games that deliver important info and updates straight to your desktop – perfect for chatting or keeping up to date with stats on the fly.

However, should you prefer a more familiar desktop, Windows 8.1 reintroduces the Start button for a more traditional computing experience.

Cooler Master case


With high airflow cooling, quiet fans and ambient red LEDs, the Vortex Hailstorm looks as good as its performance figures.

It's convenient too thanks to eight USB ports and HDMI, DVI and DisplayPort outputs.

Enjoy high-end gaming right from the off thanks to the PC Specialist Vortex Hailstorm Gaming PC's impressive processor, graphics card and component combination.
