Yeah as if AMD has a bigger sponsor budget than Intel or nVidia... :D

Interesting that AMD aren't on that list considering they paid for him to go to their preview shows and some of the videos even mentioned it was sponsored by AMD.

The Linus videos used to be quite good and informative. Now they try too hard to be funny with their stupid video thumbnail. Much better channels are Salazar Studio, UFDisciple and AdordedTV (though I suspect he's an AMD fan)
Not so good in gta v,not a suprise give single thread similar x99 cpu's from leaks.

Again , don't see why you'd pre order a cpu . There will be plenty at launch and decent independent benchmarks not the supposedly "leaked" rubbish .Not saying these will be bad before anyone tells me how amazing these will be
They had the conference yesterday, go check out Linus on YouTube, the actual figures are up and are mighty impressive.
The leaked benchmarks we saw (BF1/4K) was running on their lowest tier chip as confirmed by Linus so I'd believe any "leaked" benchmarks you see.
If I didn't have my 6700k then I'd pre order in a heartbeat.

Isn't one of Linus's main sponsors AMD?

worth upgrading my 2gb 7850 to this?
Rather just get a used 290!
not any better than a very old gtx660

Hmm since I'm only doing video editing.. Will this do..?
You don't need a GPU at all, stick to your iGPU and save your money.
Most software primarily relies on CPU for rendering files, BUT a decent GPU is helpful for certain things in certain software. For example i upgraded my GPU so that i'd be able to get a decent fps playback in davinci resolve, and can now watch things colour graded on the fly ( i believe it stil uses the CPU rather than GPU when it comes to exporting?). Id do a little research into your chosen software ( for example i know that Lightworks has also been using GPU to help with any effects/colour corrections for the last few years).
cold. not worth the money. get a 1050 or a used card.

anyone get any shipping updates, I still have a slight doubt in the back of my mind that we won't get this
Spoke to them on live-chat yesterday, all the RX 480s are getting shipped this afternoon, so no need to worry :)

I have just spoken to them. They told me due to the bad weather yesterday items will not be shipped till early next week. Make of that what you will.

I knew it, they sent me a email stating because of weather conditions its delayed, what the hell, cancelling my order and ordering with Overclockers, they state it will be delivered tomorrow if i order within the next 1 hour., its £10 more but you get Doom 2016 anyway.

I agree that the 4GB is enough at 1080p, no doubting that, it will be good for atleast 1 more most likely 2 more years, only a few games need more than 4GB and quite a few games with mods might need more than 4GB BUT....
for 30 pound more why not, atleast you know pretty much whatever game you throw at it you can handle.
With that logic, for just a few more pounds, get a really good card in the 1070.
I mean, if you keep slapping 30 quid on top of it, you can get better and better cards.
155 is extremely good value. add 32 to that, it's not as good value. And really, you are suggesting to 'future proof' RAM while this card itself is not future proof, in 2 years the 4gb and 8gb models will both be too slow, and it won't be because of the RAM.
Why haven't you posted that deal if you can get a 1070 for £210 (which is £30 on top of the 8GB model), probably because you cant
I said 4GB for the next 1-2 years, I didnt speak about future proofing, i specifically said that the 4GB card will be good for atleast another year or 2, I also stated the reason why 8GB is a good idea and it was nothing to do with future proofing.
I don't know why you think I was saying this mid range graphics card would be good for future proofing.
Here is what I'm thinking: If you get a 4gb now youre good for 1-2 years @1080p. If however at that time you want to upgrade having a 8gb one would be better since you can get another one and crossfire them. Or if you want to go nVidia for example 1070 then reselling the 8gb would be easier as well. Any thoughts?
I do not think reselling an 8gb card in 2 years time will be any easier than reselling a 4gb card.
The initial cost is the main concern here. For 20% more, you get virtually no performance boost and the possibility of a future benefit. If you 'plan to crossfire' any card, don't. It's an outdated technology and will be replaced by mGPU tech shortly, and crossfire has *terrible* support. Save that crossfire money and spend it on the 1070 straight away, or don't spend it at all and put it toward your NEXT gfx card purchase, so you don't ever have to be victim of terrible scaling, bad drivers, or other problems with SLI/Crossfire.
Anyone recommending it as a viable upgrade path is crazy.
So basically you're saying that if I only plan to use it for 2 years for example, and don't care about 1440p to save the £30 and get 4gb? Or are you suggesting to wait till 1070s drop?

I would say, even if you care about more than 2 years time, to save the 30 quid and get the 4gb model. There is very little proof that the VRAM requirements for 1080p will change in those 2 years as the vast majority of the market is still under 3gb of VRAM. 1080p is not demanding on VRAM, it's a marketing ploy to stick 8 gb on a mid market card.

Save your money, use it to get a new card later, or spend more and get a 1070 (Now, or shortly after the big dump of new cards come).

Has anyone had an update on shipping? It was supposed to be Friday but not had any comma from them
Latest I got was "We will ensure that any orders, placed on the 21st of February will be express shipped on Monday and should arrive with you Tuesday 28th. Any orders placed on the 22nd should be arriving with you by Wednesday or Thursday at the very, very latest."
They seem at great pains to stress that this is not their normal service and as they have been very pro-active in keeping me updated I'm happy to wait.

They should have emailed you, they delayed shipping because they couldnt get orders from the supplier because of bad wind lol

I cancelled and ordered from Overclockers the same day and received it today

Apparently the delay is down to the storm but i agree with you redbutcher, i wouldnt buy from them until they fulfil all the orders they've promised. I know if they don't i wont bother even looking at their deals again.If you see something elsewhere in the meantime i'd suggest trying them now anyway
I cancelled my order for the 4GB version and ordered it from the Overclockers for £10 more but they are giving DOOM 2016 away with it, which could be sold to make up the difference.

I think that's an AMD promo so probably comes with the AWD-IT one too.

I'll give it till monday and if i dont have a tracking number by then i'll do the same. Really do hate these companies that just do these offers most of them with no intention of fulfilling the orders, just using them as click-bait. Most of them know about this site and how much money it can make them, shame they cant be banned from this site like many other types of forums dont allow unreliable sources, that way we wouldn't keep getting these types of things .

Apparently the delay is down to the storm...
...and those cheeky chappies at HUKD
...due to the amount of these graphics cards sold over the course of a few days due to a number of factors (primarily hotukdeals):p we have been unable to dispatch a lot of orders as we've been awaiting the arrival of supplementary stock to cope with the sudden demand.
Heh heh:{
you're right, that's the problem though, they know they'll get lots of clicks from here and some will buy other things etc. Im more than a little upset at this as im expecting a cancellation now on Monday

Just had my order shipped by Oveclockers through DPD, but says delivery will be Monday and not tomorrow as I didn't want to pay for delivery and it costs extra to get Saturday delivery.

I messaged ADW-IT yesterday and I have mentioned earlier I had a doubt it my mind they would ship it, another website that was selling it that was posted here (One Stop PC) also got cancelled as did everyone elses, so I had little doubt this would too.

Although its not cancelled, its been delayed twice.

Cheshirejms
I have ordered the 8gb card, spoke to them this afternoon and was assured there was absolutely no problem with delivery just will be shipped first thing next week.
As this is such a good deal and heat just went so high I think they have had to get more stock in.
Still a brilliant deal.

This makes sense if a few people who ordered first got their orders and now they have to wait for more delivery since so many people purchased it, but it seems they don't have any stock at all and need to wait for delivery from the supplier and then they can ship it out.

granted it was really windy yesterday but using that as an excuse is pretty poor

Will be cheaper come feb 28 - both amd and nvidia have events that day
No they wont this is nVidia
Nvidia is releasing the 1080ti, making the 1080 the new mid high end, and the 1070 high mid end.
Amd is expected to release vega / rx500 high end to replace fury cards
A new pecking order necessarily changes prices due to decreased perceived value. Price will go down - or I should say they'll continue to go down
No this is nvidia were talking about. The 1080ti will be in its own tier just below the Titan XP so the current linup will retain their position and therefore remain at the current price points. I'd predict £900 for the 1080ti.
Although if Vega can compete then only that would drive prices of the current 1070/1080's down.
Not saying nvidia will drop rrp
I'm saying retailers will drop prices to move stock that isn't selling for those prices, as a reaction to the lower demand

No they won't. Happens everytime with nVidia. The Ti is on another level to 1080 and 1070, it will have no affect on their prices.


If the Ti can't do 60fps at 4K maxed out, I'm gonna be angry. Hulk smash the HQ

Good price for the moment, if for whatever reason you can't wait. Surprised that nobody has commented on the ASUS GTX1070 being £330 at novatech last month. Have people finally realised they can't time-travel? :O
Anyone else notice the little booboo they made with the box art? X) Not bad for the current prices of a 1070, shame they havent dropped all that much.

The 480 is superb, but this compact 1060 is aiming for a different market. There is no compact 480 as far as I'm aware.

Looks good, but a 350W PSU sounds a bit low.
Nvidia recommends 400W with a GTX 1060
See: https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/products/10series/geforce-gtx-1060/ and click on the "view full specs" link.
That's for the reference design. Board partners are free to tweak to lower power usage to make then smaller/quieter.
True, but I think I'd still go for a bit more than 350W - that's going to be close to the lower limit and that doesn't leave much room for future expansion. A 50W drop from reference to production cards seems a hell of a lot!

Not at all. Look up some reviews of top-end parts and take a peek at the system power consumption benchmarks. For example, Anandtech's GTX1080 review; Intel i7 4960X @ 4.2GHz, GTX1080 Founders Edition, 32GB RAM, 335W draw under load playing Crysis 3. Powering that system with a 350W PSU would be inadvisable, but it would work. A mid-range system with a GTX1060 would be absolutely fine.

Looking at Anandtech's GTX1060 review, the same system with a 1060 FE draws 264W. But it's unlikely anyone is going to run that card with an overclocked 130W i7 and 32GB of RAM. An actual mid-range system will draw a chunk less (certainly <250W at load).

This is just as true of the RX480 BTW. In the grand scheme of things, it doesn't draw that much more power.

Edited By: satchef1 on Feb 16, 2017 22:10
Have to agree, I've built one of these mini style cards into a compact ITX chassis, with a low profile 1U style 250w PSU, and and i7-6700T, 16GB RAM etc, and the power draw from the wall under full load during stress testing was less than 170w, very power efficient cards.

However if you've got the PSU to support it, the RX 480 8GB at £189 might be the better buy, but there's literally only a few percent difference in most games or applications. :)
Rich44
Is the Rx480 8gb not the slightly better value at £189?

I'd say yes, but in the end it all boils down to the user's preference

Just has a quick look to see to see what the step up would cost to the 1050 Ti 4 GB, it seems like it's worth the extra if you can find it for about £130 or slightly less even. It looks like the best deal is on Amazon for the 'Zotac GeForce GTX 1050Ti 4 GB Mini Graphics Card - Black (B01M8M5T4T)' which drops to £137 ever other day atm it seems. Also it has been on offer for ~£129 for most of December. Not in urgent need of it so I will see what the price is over the next few weeks.

Yeah, I know what you're saying but think longer term over the usable lifetime of the card and bang per buck. With titles like Star Citzen and Mass Effect coming out in 2017, you're going to want some extra grunt for games like that. A bit more spent now is going to save alot of frustration later with blocky graphics or chuggy framerates...

Not bad at all for a ready built gamer. Wonder what motherboard they put in


That's not a bad price for a system that should play many current games at 1080p using medium settings at worst. I just read a little about the i5 and although it's probably not a bottleneck, it's single core speed is less than some cheaper i3s according to one review. That along with the 8gb RAM and 3gb 1060 explains the price. Still a decent entry system for the money.

Anyone pasting that description into Google will come up with the ARK page I did and think it's a reasonable, if old processor.

To be honest Dell were selling this and stating the CPU very clearly but it seems AWDit are the ones being a bit economical with the CPU description!

32gb is cutting it fine for a single drive machine. You'll have around 10gb free which could make OS updates tricky.
Hi
She wants to watch movies , general browsing with larger screen so thought of going for micro PC. Have you come across any reasonable priced spec micro lately?
spannerzone
The page states it's 2410MHz which is a way they can advertise the CPU frequency (2410Mhz / 2.4Ghz) without having to use the name Celeron which people may well avoid. These definitely didn't come out with the CPU you've listed as they'd be proud to use the 'i5 core 2410' in the advert whereas they're hiding the fact it's a Celeron J1800 that runs at 2410Mhz.

I would get a cheap laptop and a 2nd screen. The hp stream ones that are always on here cheap would do they're roughly the same spec and add a 22" screen for about £70.

The Dell page which OP linked to lists the CPU as Intel 2410 MHz Dual Core:ARK Specs here
The page states it's 2410MHz which is a way they can advertise the CPU frequency (2410Mhz / 2.4Ghz) without having to use the name Celeron which people may well avoid. These definitely didn't come out with the CPU you've listed as they'd be proud to use the 'i5 core 2410' in the advert whereas they're hiding the fact it's a Celeron J1800 that runs at 2410Mhz.

Not on it's own. You'd have to download some more RAM as well. :p

Not even like you can miss it, soon as you add to the basket it states the full price the page also shows the ex vat price
This is why I don't post deals very often on HotUKDeals. Nice edit.
What because i'm stating what everyone else can see and is thinking, you post a deal if it works out great, if not nothing lost, price wasn't as the deal stated so why would I not comment with that, as said you couldn't miss the actual price.
You already made it clear why you voted it cold, but then you amended your post to add a sentence which added absolutely no value when the deal was already expired?
The deal isn't expired, I added the sentence before your reply, the deal wasn't a deal and I was explaining that you'd quoted the ex vat price, which is exactly what it looked like

Oh of course of course. That extra sentence was absolutely necessary then! I guess it was my mistake?

I am after a budget PSU for a basic office build for a family member. I have got the antec vp450 in my basket and given the specs (Intel G4560 no GFX card) I know that will be more than enough.
But it's a bloody mine field there is SO many and some lines by some companies are good yet others are to be avoided etc because they've cheated out on capacitors etc. After a week of looking I was more confused than when I started!
I have a corsair in my own desktop that's been flawless for about 7 years now. So I was going to go with corsair but apparently the green label CX are to be avoided etc etc.
Well, according to the Antec section of Realhardtechx's PSU review database the Antec VP450 is FSP-made:http://www.realhardtechx.com/index_archivos/Page673.htm
It got a silver award in it's only review:http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/antec-vp450-power-supply-review/
Not that bad for the price, but I note that hardwaresecrets is not one to dwell on capacitor quality.

I'm not expecting the earth for £35 but it will be more than adequate for the build and when on a budget it's a bit pointless shelling out more.

Don't get me wrong I wouldn't get any old PSU and always look for something decent but it's for a family member on a tight budget so I'm happy enough to recommend it.

The XFX is designed by seasonic but not manufactured by them, they outsourced the manufacture to Shenzen technology.
Previous XFX were made by seasonic but the 400w 500w and 600w aren't. Linky
Very interesting article.
And it seems some of the lower-end SuperFlower PSUs are also outsourced:http://www.orionpsudb.com/application/files/cache/1290d824b41fc5e988653243a01a8d34.png
This kind of thing doesn't show up in the Realhardtechx PSU database as they are of course just listed as Seasonic.http://www.realhardtechx.com/index_archivos/Page625.htm
And it seems to major site has reviewed them yet.

I think everyone will say this but don't risk a refurbished power supply when they are so cheap new. Why risk it. Also this isn't an 80+Bronze either based on the description on the site, so I'd say spend another tenner and get a new 80+bronze certified one.
Can you link the Bronze one that isn't refurbished that costs a tenner more? I'm buying a PSU, hence why I shared this. Thanks.
Okay so it's about £14 more...https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B00PGUSEBG/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1484836900&sr=8-1&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65&keywords=650w+psu&dpPl=1&dpID=51jVmSSdsoL&ref=plSrch
Thats not Bronze. :P

Really don't see the point of this.
The VS line is by far Corsair's cheapest line even worse than the CX line which already is rather poor.
Far better than buying this used/reconditioned PSU for £39, is to buy a better quality one with less watts.
There's not much out there at this kind of price (not helped by sterling's recent ~20% depreciation), but a 400W XFX P1-400B-XTFR (Seasonic made AFAIK) is £40 on uk.pcpartpicker.com with the 500W and 600W versions not much more. Or even sticking to Corsair, the somewhat better made CX line starts at about £45 new.
I actually got this for £32.50 before it went back up, I just amended the deal as opposed to expiring it. Essentially for a 650W PSU of the standard you are talking about you're looking at £70+.
The PSU I have at the moment that I suspect is faulty is a Gold Corsair AX850 I spent over £150 on. I've only ever owned one PSU from the VS range but it would seem its outlived my Gold one, but I haven't had anything heavy on it.
I'm not saying I don't see your point about quality, but at the end of the day its half the price and I need the 650W for flexibility. I'm not going to shell out a massive amount for PSU's that are going to be used in cheap rigs, or testing. Everyones situation is different, if it doesn't suit you it will suit someone else. If it doesn't suit ANYONE surely they wouldn't sell them.
Fair enough, I just like to warn people about these Corsair VS (or even the CX).
Only see the AX860 (and AX860i) on the PSU review database listing:http://www.realhardtechx.com/index_archivos/Page447.htm
So, that one which failed most probably was Seasonic. Which shows that there is no guarantees in life because while Seasonic (and Superflower and Delta) are one of the top OEMs, power supplies can still fail. Guess one thing you pay for is them failing gracefully, that is without blowing up your other components. Or at least that's the theory.

This is the problem: http://forum.corsair.com/v3/showthread.php?t=95898

It will fail eventually, but until then this problem just gets worse. Can't complain with the 7 year warranty you get with the Gold units though, thats one thing the VS series doesn't offer.

EDIT: I've just checked your link. Mine is on there but probably discontinued because of the known fault. I would imagine it would go through RMA process with flying colours.

Lol - you still haven't watched the video have you...
You do know AdoredTV is dedicated to AMD, right? I watched the video, it's pointless to AdoredTV's opinion about AMD v NVIDIA.
You act as if he's an expert, but take a look at his channel. He's playing for AMD fanboy views.
There has been 500 quid graphics cards, there will be 500 quid graphics cards. On both sides.
If you think NVIDIA is price gouging, why are you not calling them out on price gouging too?
Also, if I wanted someone to break down the Steam Hardware Survey for 30 minutes, I could have told you the answer right away. NVIDIA sells more cards.
"Most informed person on youtube" that's a good one.
Lol - you're funny man! We're talking about the 1080, 1070 and 1060 being overpriced right? It doesn't matter if a graphics card is £1000 or £10 - if it's over priced, it's over priced!
If it's over priced due to a monopoly having no competition and it has been purposely priced to take advantage of that, then that is called 'price gouging'!! Currenty AMD can't price gouge. Not saying they wouldn't if they we're in Nvidias position but presently they can't actually do it. Simples.
AdoredTV describes himself as AMD fanatic. That doesn't change what happened over time between Nvidia and AMD and the consumers that fell for the great marketing that Nvidia implemented.
In one of his latest videos he rips AMD Vega tech apart. He works as a consultant to Fund managers and investment companies so I'll think I'll listen to what he has to say rather than yourself, but you go for it dude!
Also, give Nvidia some more of your money and make sure you ask for less - they need you!!
Lul &lt;3
As AdoredTV says "1080 is a mid range graphics card at top range price."... roll on Vega and 1080ti and hope the prices correct.
You are being hoodwinked by this dude.
The 1080 is a "Mid Range Graphics Card"??!?! So, by that, the 480/1060 is extreme low entry budget that is overpriced?

Cheers for the advice!! I'll try and stay safe out there. So many untrustworthy people out there... have you thought about maybe writing a book or a tech blog? Your indepth knowledge is really useful - I'm sure others could benefit from it.

Which cpu would be a good match for this?
For 1080p 7600k/6600k
For 1440p+ the 6700K/7700K
Got any evidence that the i5 performs poorly at 4k? I can't find anything.
If you are building a new machine, sure, consider the latest versions of CPUs, but if you already have a 2500k or higher CPU, I don't see a convincing reason to upgrade to match with this card.
Again, got anything that backs this up?
Personal experience trying to play at 3440 x 1440
I swore by my 2500K for years but it it finally started to show its age with BF1. I'd constantly go from 80fps to 45ish and all the cores would be at 98%> load
I thought upgrading to a 6600K build would sort it. My fps improved but I was still getting the framerate dips during explosions, intensives scenes etc.
So I upgraded to the 6700K and it's provided a much more stable fps. I hover between 80-100fps now
This vid (notable the witcher 3) shows why the i7 pushes ahead in CPU intensive games... the i5's framerate constantly fluctuateshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EhaB1dqYv_I
I mean, I watched the video.
I think we have to understand what their tests are trying to achieve: A CPU bottleneck so you can highlight the differences.https://youtu.be/EhaB1dqYv_I?t=164
TL:DR/DW: The video you linked says they still think the price/performance sweet spot is the i5.
But I understand wanting the best of the best for a new rig, just hard to justify someone upgrade from a previous gen card to a 7700k if they have a viable i5 or, if you must, a 2600k.
But that video is quite old now, and the benchmark is run at 1080p on a weaker GPU. When I saw it originally I agreed with their summary as well. I had the same logic of not needing to upgrade my 2500K.... But when BF came out though that opinion changed unfortunately, the 2500K and to a certain extent the 6600K was bottle-necking the 1080 for me.
But remember, my demands are 3440x1440 @ ~100fps. If you game at 1080p then the i5 will be fine.
Gaming at higher resolution reduces the strain on the CPU.
That's why the test you linked was done at 1080, so it stressed the CPU and not the GPU.
BF1 is almost surely GPU bound at 4k resolution.
Well it wasn't because the 1080 was mostly chilling while all cores of the processor were maxing out. It was physics that were causing the big drop in frames (i.e. tanks blowing up, destruction in the desert towns etc)
I've tried the 2500k, 6600k and 6700k (all at 4.4ghz) and came to the conclusion the i7 was the the sweet spot for my needs.

I get a solid 60fps with battlefield 1 at max settings affer increasing the core clock of my 1070 by a modest 99mhz. My 2500k is running at 4.3ghz on stock voltage and im also gaming at 3440 x 1440.
I'm guessing you just wanted an upgrade, as a swap to a 2600k and an easy 4.5ghz overclock would have provided similar performance to a stock 6700k, as long as you have decent ram.


​i have an almost identical set up but am lucky enough to be able to push my 2500k to 4.9ghz without issue. no bottlenecks at 1440p.

One note on the upgrade path, a 3570k is probably the way to go if maintaining 1155 socket. you can pick them up on flea bay for £70 and they offer a pretty sound 10% upgrade and oc well too.

Decent enough deal. I'm REALLY not a fan of any prebuilt PC. I'm not upset about H110 either, it's FINE for what this rig is. Most people can't be arsed with overclocking properly.

I would always suggest you build your own for these reasons:

1) I will help you
2) You can customise it more to your liking
3) If one part fails you don't have to send the whole thing back
4) The warranty on individual parts is often 3 years, also you don't have to post the entire computer off at your own cost and worry about having is smashed up in the post.
5) It's very, very easy. If you can build IKEA furniture you can build a PC.

If you want to build your own for around this price I would recommend this:

The stock one that comes with it is more than adequate

Decent enough deal. I'm REALLY not a fan of any prebuilt PC. I'm not upset about H110 either, it's FINE for what this rig is. Most people can't be arsed with overclocking properly.
I would always suggest you build your own for these reasons:
1) I will help you
2) You can customise it more to your liking
3) If one part fails you don't have to send the whole thing back
4) The warranty on individual parts is often 3 years, also you don't have to post the entire computer off at your own cost and worry about having is smashed up in the post.
5) It's very, very easy. If you can build IKEA furniture you can build a PC.
If you want to build your own for around this price I would recommend this:

And there it it, all credibility lost.
A i5-6400 is more than enough for a gaming rig with a GTX 1070, we are aiming for value for money here.
Let's do some quick analysis of that shall we...http://i.imgur.com/P9AxVRq.gif
A i5-6400 and a basic motherboard is £201.89
A i5-6600k, a proper CPU cooler (especially since the 6600k doesn't even come with a stock cooler!) and a Z170 motherboard that will make use of the overclocking ability is £350.03
So that's a 73.38% increase of price for a 19.56% increase in performance. £148.14 taken away from the GTX 1070 price is £229.80. The best GPU you can get for that is either a GTX 1060 or a RX 480, both of which are smashed by the GTX 1070. And since this is a budget 1440p/4K/VR rig a GTX 1060 or RX 480 wouldn't cut it.
Spend the money where you need it, this is a gaming rig not a video editing rig. You need GPU power. Increasingly games don't make use of CPU power. Look at JERMgaming's PotatoMasher, it's a cheap rig using a overclocked i5 750 and it's still not hitting 100% usage in games nearly eight years after launch.

I agree mostly but I would have to say buying a decent motherboard is quite high on my list. But then again I don't know the spec on the motherboard you linked.

The mobo I have is an MSI gaming model and other than looking nice through my windowed case, it allows me to control fan speed through the bios based on the temperature of my computer. The board also has plenty of connections for fans and other connectivity.

The board also has good software for updates etc, really easy to use BIOS , some kind of sound enhancement and network enhancer

Apparently it's made from some good components which sound fancy and mean nothing to me also :P

I'm no expert on these things and maybe the motherboard you linked does all these things too, but my opinion is based on the comparison between my old cheap board and my newer MSI gaming board .

Totally agree on the CPU though, I'm still getting by with an AMD 6350 and to be honest, I am playing most games at 1440p and even some at 4K quite comfortably

Well im running a i5 4460&16gb Ram with a GTX 1070 and it runs like a dream. Times have changed games are more GPU intensive than CPU.
Good price.

Looking at a build for a mate and thinking more ram and an ssd are probably a better investment than a higher cpu. He only plays dota anyway!

Was a deal posted here. And it's £250 after a credit back to account. The offer is for anything £350 and over so maybe something else that suits your requirements.

I am looking to convert to PC after a number of years on console. I have been recommended this one, is this a good choice? Alternatively, could you give me another recommendation. My budget is £700 MAX

is AWD-IT a Trusted (non scam) site ???
They are a reputable company. They're also known as ADMI Ltd if you want to look into them. I bought a case from them via Amazon a few weeks ago and had no problems.

As mentioned above you can pick up Windows 10 for under £20 and changing to an SSD is an extra £5.
Although it is entirely up to the end user if they want to pay full retail price for Windows.
It's £4.99 for a 120gb SSD if you're happy for that to be your only storage. My price was for that plus a 1TB HDD. As far as paying for Windows 10, that's personal preference for sure. Though I'm of the mindset that you either pay full price or pirate rather than pay someone to pirate for you.

Fair enough regarding storage but there's nothing wrong with OEM keys. Up to you if you want to pay full retail price.

i3 6100 is fine for a 1050Ti if you can't afford an i5
Pretty sure the i3 6100 should do just fine when it comes to gaming shouldn't bottleneck the 1050ti to much if at all?
As you are going to struggle to OC a non K series i3, all the rest of the components are pointless.

GPU is alright for this price. Ram is good enough being DDR4. CPU is not good for gaming though. It would be worth to upgrade the CPU. If this was an i5 it would be better.
Still giving heat though
Thanks, would I be able to upgrade to a i5 with this motherboard in the future ?
Can't see why not. Just need to make sure you get the right CPU for it.

Deviating slightly I like the look of cases with clear sides such as this but do they generally have any way of switching off the leds such as at night?

If it's an LED fan (or fan type connector) the case supplied has an external 3 setting fan controller 12v, 7v and 5v, that 5v setting would dim it some.
Of course all the fans will slow down as well so any critical fans/pumps would be best controlled via motherboard headers and something like speedfan.

​Very interesting. Thanks for the link. I didn't know that fan switch was even on there. I just wish there was a simple switch to turn off the lights when I'm watching a film or something. It would be interesting to let the fans control themselves based on temperature and use the switch on the case for lights. I'm sure it would be possible.

For that price should have been a 1060 to make it worthwhile...not voting either way...
