go for 8gb ram rather than 6, also you want a 550w GPU or more really. Apart from that it's a very capable PC I just don't know the seller well - you might be better off with CCL and their 3 year warranty for piece of mind

AWD-IT are very good, just finished my latest build using their i7 6700k bundle and by far the cheapest around. I haven't tried pcpartpicker but wouldn't be suprised if the parts alone are close to this, let alone prebuilt with good customer service. Looks good deal op.
Edit: AWD-IT been around 10 years and gave me 3 years warranty on my parts.That psu will be fine for a 1060, these guys know their stuff.

Can I just point out the 6gb Ram in the title is for the graphics card and cannot be changed. As for system memory, it comes with 8gb as default.

So would this be a good PC to buy? I'm currently gaming on the PS4 but am planning on switching to PC very soon but just don't know whether to build it myself or buy a pre-built PC like OP's post.

Though that would make a secondary drive mandatory. If you installed GOW4 and Win 10 the OS would fail to install updates due to lack of space. 250gb minimum for SSD plus a mechanical (1 or 2tb)

Definitely 240-250 minimum SSD, then a cheap 1tb storage drive. Other than that, it's a very good price. I'm running a self build very similar to that, but with a 480gb SSD, water cooled CPU and 16gb DDR3 RAM and it's fast and faultless.

#15
I'm to lazy to check now but what would the cost be to build this yourself? Sometimes sourcing parts can work out a bit more. I built my last rig and sold it but now want another desktop for civ 6, trying to decide on a prebuilt system or not.
Any thoughts appreciated!

Extreme setting says it needs a newer i7. You could probably run it with this build on extreme though. If it was me I would definitely get the 16gb ram update and the ssd in options.

I will be running it on the latest Samsung 32 inch tv, I take it the graphics card can handle it?
Cheers for the advice about upgrade

If it's a 4k tv then you'd want a better gfx card to be honest

for me a second drive always goes without saying, the SSD is just for the OS really but yeah thanks

RAM simply clips into place, so if they offer the tower without it and you can find it cheaper elsewhere; go for the alternative.
Obviously check the size first.

I feel your pain, but to be honest, the answer is probably no but it depends on what games he's going to want to play. A £300 PC will probably still play Minecraft OK, but for things like GTA, your budget wont stretch, e.g. for a start you would need a better graphics card which will eat up over 2/3 of your budget :(

In all seriousness, you may be better to consider a console, its a one off purchase and fits in your budget (although I can feel the glares and daggers in the back from the PC master race for even daring to suggest such a thing!! :))

Why are people recommending more than 8gb of RAM? Realistically most people won't need it

Depends on your use. I dont think anything even 'needs' 16gb. Any game that is, if you are doing graphics work then 32gb might be needed.

Thinking about it you should call them and make sure they give you 2x8gb ram so there are two slots left if you decide you need 32gb later on.

If you just mean is the +£99 for +24gb worth it then ddr4 memory is probably worth the cash.

It is a fair point.

The only counter I have is that if you have assorted pc bits and pieces already available then you can get some good stuff quite cheap and make something really good compared to what you spend, especially on Black Friday.

Last year I grabbed a brix gaming for £170 total, including 8gb ram and small ssd, that runs gta V well. End of range stuff but still well under a third of what it was selling for. Based on some of the other offers last year you could get a decent ready to go i3/i5 for £230/£260 with no graphics card and even asda were dumping their stock like this for similar prices, £80 for a 750 puts you just above the £300 budget. They were older stock and only had 6gb though, ok but not great...like your £300 budget. :P

If you had parts and os you might be able to pick up a decent barebones for sub £200 this year too, but again older generation, and a 750 or 760 gtx for sub £80. If you have hdd/sdd then £30 for ram and use your own os. Who knows maybe the 960 might flop in price or the 780 and you get lucky.

Having realistic expectations is needed here: that £300 wont get you cutting edge performance but it will get you playing at medium, with the ability to upgrade to higher end graphics if they ever hit a realistic price.

If it is like last year stuff goes quick so you need to know precisely what you need and hit it fast.

good price considering i spend £429 on a 1070. i know this is a 1060 card but still a decent system for anyone wanting 1080p games

do i get this or do i wait for the Black Friday deals? :(

You really will struggle with £300 budget to get a comparison to console. This is probably as cheap as it gets for decent frames per second gaming at 1080p for newer games eg battlefield 1. Even this price you need to add a 250gb ssd and also windows 10.
Black Friday may provide cheaper but the way the £ has been battered I will be surprised if it does.
I had a quick look last night and the parts alone are more with the peace of mind built already and warranty.
You could build cheaper with older tech but it will struggle with new games.
I think console is probably best for your budget to be honest.

A point to note. This is excellent for the money..... However, BF1 recommends a minimum processor speed of 6700k or higher. This will easily play BF1 but if you think you can buy this tower and treat yourself to a newly released game, playing it at max settings.....think again. If there is an option to upgrade to 16gb RAM and an i7 processor.. It might be worth considering if the price isn't too much more. A decent gaming PC is realistically £800+.

This is a good PC but would recommend going to more reliable websites like ebuyer of ccl online. Look for an i5 processor and a gtx 1060

Now that someone mentioned Black Friday. With remaining realistic: do you guys think that there will be good deals on gaming laptops / pcs? Were there any last year?

Agree, a "Frankenstein" PC could possibly come in on budget, but its not assured and parts may be a pain to find. One other thing I've noticed is that this does not include the operating system, so unless you have a spare licence, you need to factor in another £60+.

This is a great deal, I have myself just bought a PC for Awd who trade as ADMI.
You can't get the parts cheaper to build yourself on this PC or the one that I bought; AWD code 650010701.
They were very helpful on the phone; did say however they had been very busy over half term with kids orders, and all systems are built to order so may be a little wait. Will report back when I have it.
