Hiya, ive configured this PC on PC Specialist and was looking for some opinions on it. It will mainly be used for gaming, but also for university and work when needed (programming, graphic design etc). I already have a TUF Gaming VG27AQ monitor and i'm hoping it will be compatible? Any advice welcome, thanks!

Should be fine. I'd expect they are charging a premium for a PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSD. You may want to consider a lower end NVMe if that can push you to 1TB instead of 500GB. As the last thing you'll ever want to do after loading a game off an NVMe SSD is to be forced to load one off a hard drive.
