Seems a fair price for this bundle, thinking about getting it myself. Could stick a optical drive in, a samsung f3 and a hd 5770 and it would run ok?

I specc'ed the same CPU, an AM3 Mobo and 2 x 2GB Corsair memory recently at Ebuyer for around £150. So in effect you're paying £40 for a generic case and PSU which is the going rate anyway.

Personally I'd pick my own bits and pieces and know exactly what I was getting rather than the vague description that Novatech is providing.
#10
Based on buying similar from Novatech a couple of months ago, you get what is listed already assembled. So motherboard is screwed into case with CPU and cooler attached. Memory is in place on motherboard. PSU is connected to motherboard.

You add the hard drive, optical drive and connect those cables.

I was thinking the same. Its about the same price you would pay in a lot of places. Neither hot nor cold really.

Using that logic it should be 0° :)

Convenience is worth something - I usually build my own but I ordered a barebones so it was ready to go after I added a HDD and DVDRW -saved time when I didn't have any spare(_;)
#21
In that case you need more weighting towards your CPU and memory (photoshop).
Don't need a gamers graphics card.
And I would look at a small system, as your needs are not uber, and a full midi would just be taking up space. Go for a neat little M-ATX syste, with 8GB a fast Hard Disk (ideally not the green drives) and a Triple Core or Quad core AMD (Ahtlon II if your really budget constrained, but I would urge you to go for a Phenom II).
Oh and no need for an uber PSU either. A decent 500W will do (even a good 450W would suffice).

Thats why its barebones. You need to add a Hard Dride, and ideally a DVD drive too. Graphics is optional (as it does have adequate basic on board, sufficient for non gaming tasks).

I am looking at the fact that this becomes pat assembled for easy of use but lets you customise to your use ie HDD/graphics card for gaming, possibly a blue ray drive. Plus I'm only 17 and so want my first build to be relatively easy!
Now stop making my deal cold ;)
#24
And I just bought mine so please can people not tell how bad these are....
Thanks :p

is there an option to buy this without the tower case?

Don't be suprised, it's not from eBuyer so that will upset some people here...;)

Nothing wrong with this deal if your after an easy route into building your own, saving £4 to buy the parts seperately from ebuyer seems pointless to me, considering.

mkins99 - thanks for link to the motherboard bundles - not noticed those before so might do that this time

Voted hot for me - apart from the amazing service you gert from Novatech, this is pre-built so saves a little bit of time and hassle - very convenient and good bang for buck

ASUS M4A78LT-M LE AMD 760G Socket AM3 DVI VGA Out 8 Channel Audio MATX Motherboard - £42.99


I know this isn't really important, but I just thought I'd point out that I bought this motherboard for my new PC, and I couldn't use it - It's rated for 90W CPUs maximum, and the Phenom II X4 I bought was 120W.

I had to replace the motherboard with the Non-LE version.

I looked up the Athlon II X4 640, though, and that seems to be a 95W CPU, so it might be all right.

My MoBo is on it's way out so I am thinking of buying this. Ok you may have to pay a few extra quid than eBuyer but I would rather do that because it is pre-built and I hate spending an hour fannying about and assembling a PC just to boot it up and something does not work so then you have to spend another hour troubleshooting.

FIt my HDD, CD/DVD, Graphics card, plug the monitor in and bish, bash bosh away you go :) I vote hot.

high spec for a server.....just add windows home server (not especially cheap) or ubuntu (free)

do you have to build these yourself

not as such, comes ready built but you have to add your own extras

all items sold in the pack have been built, eg processor mounted on motherboard, motherboard screwed into case, etc

you just then need to buy a optical drive, hard disk+sata cable (you need to connect it in the case/to the mboard), mouse, keyboard, screen and os (some of which are free or you may have)

you may also need a graphics card if playing games (and maybe video/photo editing/watch videos/streaming video)...though the mboard has in built graphics capability

Not the best at these things so please don;t shoot me down but presumably I'd need to buy a couple of fans for this too? or use old ones?

I have an oldish homemade PC with monitor ready but keeps overheating after about 10 mins and dying on me so I could just take HDD and DVDRW drive from there and then nick the fans too and it'l all plug into this setup relatively easily?


Pretty sure old one has a basicish graphic card too, say 128 or 256mb, do you think that'd transfer over too?

I'm not going to use it for gaming anymore like I used to

depends how old......the graphics card might not as cards are generally PCIe now, whereas if yours is really old it maybe an AGP card - none of these are compatible as they have different types of connectors on the motherboard - in any case i suspect the onboard graphics will be better than the card from your old machine anyway (what make model is the old one?)

The HDD and DVDRW will fit the case no problems but not sure how youd connect them if they arent SATA drives as its not clear what motherboard they are using and if they have anything other than SATA connectors. If they only have SATA connectors (likely) then you could connect the hard drive via a PCI card (ive done this before but thats when things were very expensive, personally now i wouldnt bother as you would be impeding the transfer speed between motherboard and drive using this method as SATA is fast. much ,much faster than PCI) - id check with Novatech and if they cant help id buy new drives (what you trying to achieve is prob workable but its like flogging a [near] dead horse)

i have a novatech barebones gaming pc and added my extras...the good thing is that they use branded OEM stuff unlike competitors....my I5 bundle is about 2 years and came with an Antec 900-2 case, Asus mboard, Corsair 750w(i think) psu, 4 gig branded mem - decent stuff ...i just added 4 hard disks, 4gb extra mem, gtx260 card (2nd best available at time, 275 was silly money and double 260 cost), etc

Is it worth spending the extra £200 for this one ?

http://www.novatech.co.uk/novatech/prods/barebones/Novatech/BB-10904A.html

I'm after a PC that I pretty much won't have to replace for the next 5+ years. So want to get something pretty powerful that will last/keep up for a few years.

Have you looked at the new intel sandy bridge systems? those chips look as good as if not better than this depending on use.

You cant buy a 1155 mobo at the moment due to the chipset issues. If you have one look out for when your manufacturer will do you a swap out.

Ha! Typical. i thought it was just one manufacturer that was having bios problems and i was hoping to buy a system this week coming..I was just going by what I'd seen posted here, mainly Scan bundles, and what I'd seen when googling about like tom's hardware is one site i remember. Seemed good...at the time :(
