Looking for some opinons before i buy.
https://www.pcspecialist.co.uk/notebooks/proteusV-15/

Model
Proteus V
Processor
Intel i7 Quad 7700HQ (2.8GHz | 3.8GHz Turbo)
Memory
8GB CORSAIR 2133MHz SODIMM DDR4 (2 X 4GB)
Graphics
GTX 1060 6GB GDDR5 VIDEO RAM
Hard Disk
1TB SERIAL ATA III 2.5 HDD | 32MB CACHE (7200RPM)
M.2 SSD DRIVE
256GB WD BLACK M.2 NVME PCIE SSD (2050MB/S R | 700MB/S W)
Adaptor
200W
Thermal Paste
EK-TIM ECTOTHERM THERMAL COMPOUND

(£1,183 | $1,677)

Two things i'm unsure of. Is the EK-TIM thermal paste worth the extra £9 or does the standard paste do a good enough job?
When it comes to an adaptor is it better to have a 200W or 230W?

Looking for any general opinons really on the Proteus V itself. There's also lot of options to choose from regarding the hard drives so if you can spot a better combo let me know.

It will be used mainly for cpu intense gaming and graphic design.

Bear in mind in live in the UK. This seems to be one of the better laptops specs and value wise from the UK.

Thanks in advance.

Yeah you seem set! You could get away with the 230W adapter and dust of any doubts. Although the laptop wont pull as much but it's good to have as buffer space as possible. In regards to the TIM, the TIM is a step above a standard TIM. In fact any form of aftermarket(reputed) branded TIM will out perform a regular/generic TIM any given day.
