    Would it be relevant if I talked about how one of my hobbies is using Photoshop and Cinema4d to create high quality 3d models in my spare time?

    I built my gaming PC whilst studying for my GCSE's, should I talk about this?

    Yeah why not? I went around talking about the stuff I made during GCSE Computing (applied for Maths though), and also mentioned using Sculptrix and other art software, but I went further and explained how it was useful for my course(e.g. experimenting with various methods to solve problems such as creating a complex shape with few tools/0.

    Also I'd advice stating how doing those things will be of benefits, the skills you've gained from doing it and such (in particular building your own PC, as lots of people applying for Comp Sci mention this).

    Would you cover any of those things as part of your degree? If not then it's not relevant

    I'd say mention the gaming PC build - it shows you have an interest outside of education related to computers and this is almost certainly going to somehow be a part of your degree. The 3d models part may not be suitable unless you're covering it in your degree.
