Good price.

Don't forget, you will need a hard drive as well as the graphics card.

And an operating system. Does the motherboard have hdmi port?
no , just looked at pic, sorry

Hi, Im just wondering if it makes a difference if the motherboard has hdmi? if you get a graphics card that has hdmi? I ask because Im thinking of getting something like this or buying my own parts, Im just wondering if it makes a difference.

Also i see usb 3 is coming out is it best to get a motherboard with this on it? or will there probably be pci cards for that in the future?

They already have usb 3.0 pic card slots available i believe (dont qoute me on this) its around £25. I was thinking maybe getting this set up and configuring for a media computer. tho I wud waste the case, having some sort of on board graphics is good on any system as if you GFX card dies, you can still access it, albeit limited.

im not shure if is worth worry soo much about that
#10
Don't worry about on-board graphics as a back-up. Just get a dirt-cheap second-hand PCI card to keep as a spare. Should be able to get one for a fiver (or for free).

Also DLC, if you want a media PC get a Revo. £150 cheaper, uses less power, has HDMI, has a hard drive and graphics already, will be quieter than this thing, smaller.
#11
Im confused as i have a P55 motherboard and they don't come with any onboard graphics as they are not meant for i3 really but the H55 and H57 are designed for i3 which have there own graphics built on to the CPU and this board doesn't appear to have any output for HDMI which im sure it should have or at least VGA-DVI i would be interested to know what board this is as it doesnt make a lot of sense. Below is intels very own spec for the H55/H57 chipset.

http://www.intel.com/products/desktop/chipsets/h55/h55-overview.htm

Sorry i see now what looks like a Mini HDMI which ive added to description but there doesnt seem to be many options for a monitor unless theres an expansion card

Personally, I think the other core i5 deal is better. £20 more but you get an i5-760 cpu instead.

only a 4MB cache...vast improvements on a 8mb
#14
Not sure where Tasman got those images from, but if you do the 360 view thing on Novatech, it shows a DVI output as well as HDMI and VGA.

EDIT: Although none of that matters as the i5 doesn't have a GPU, so those outputs are useless (unless you downgrade the CPU to an i3) which is probably why they aren't listed in the description.

This is a barebones bundle. I'm sure they expect you to add a graphics card (as well as hard disks, optical drive etc).
I doubt that many people would buy an i5 and not expect at least a semi decent graphics card - hence they would be likely to buy one to put into this thing.

But it is a real quad-core CPU. The deal posted by the OP is only a dual-core. Novatech's listing is wrong, this posted deal (Intel Core i5 650) is only a 2 core and not a 4.

So do i, i have a 750 and they are monsters and still voted in all the PC mags as the CPU to have as they overclock massively have aggressive turbo boost and are quadcore and out perform all i3 and most other CPU's in gaming.

I was upgrading to either a i7 870 on P55 or a 950 on the X58 board but ive now decided im keeping my money in my bank. If i where anyone looking at any of these i3,i5 and i7 1156 chipset i wouldnt spend a penny for a few more months as intel are going to be replacing the 1156 chipset with 1155 in the next few months and releasing the second generation i series CPU's on 32nm process and they will be 50% faster than the current i series and a few months later the codename sandybridge will follow on to fit the 1155 board if i remember right on a 22nm process, So any one like me thinking of dropping £500-£600 on a board and CPU don't else you will be very upset, like i already am after paying the best part of £200 for one of the best P55 motherboards not even 6months ago and a i5.

Intel have some answering for themselves to do as when i bought the P55 1156 i expected to be good for at least 18months for upgrades as it was there latest thing and with all the talk of the X58 and being retired i took the plunge and went for what i thought was the better option, but it turns out that i should of bought the X58 as that's not being retired for a while yet and the money i spent on my board i could of had the better chipset.

The i5 760 has 4 cores and 8MB of cache. For £20 that is a cost-effective upgrade.

Im confused by your comment, i meant that i know P55 have no graphics but as far as i know the H55/H57 do have onboard. The i5 is a weird setup as it overlaps both dual with onboard and quadcore CPU's without onboard graphics on them the 750/760 are true quadcore and the 6** are dual.

It also has a unlocked multiplier like intels extreme processors and the AMD black editions making it overclockable for the masses by just upping the multi for easier overclocking and supposedly better temps(not in reality and will not overclock anymore then the locked 750)

Oh wait, the 650 does have a GPU. So the DVI, HDMI, VGA ports makes sense.

The 760 doesn't have a GPU.

So for £20 more you get twice as many cores and twice as much L3, but you lose the integrated graphics.

Was gonna buy this today, but I think I will just build my own.

Still a great deal.

Be aware though that the power supply only has one 6 pin pci express power connection, if you where to buy, say a GTX 460 you would need to buy an adapter too.

All these Novatech deals are using the Xigmatek Asgard case...

http://www.xigmatek.com/product.php?productid=27

In case you need to know what specs/features the case itself has...
It's a cheap but full(er) featured tower case. Handy for the extra drive bays spaces it has.
#28
Good price.

Quick question would you not need to get extra fans for the case? or do they come with it?

The 3 fans you get with the case says;

Front Fan: Preinstalled 120mm black fan x 1 (80/90mm fan is available)

Rear Fan: 80/90/120mm x 1 fan is available.
Side Fan: 80/90/120mm x 2 fans are available.

So it only comes with the Front fan installed! maybe the rear fan would be a good idea?

what brand of mobos do they use?

foxconn I'm guessing.

The problem with these bundles is that you cannot overclock them and these intel chips are crying out for a bit of attention. So with that in mind I would go for something like this:

overclocked i3 bundle @4ghz
http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=BU-042-OE&groupid=43&catid=339&subcat=
£259.99

Decent case:

£58.99

Decent Modular PSU (Rebranded Enermax):
http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=CA-007-SP&groupid=701&catid=123&subcat=
£49.99

Total £368.97

This would be a far superior system as the i3 530 is far and away the best bang for buck chip on the market, read this for some interesting comparisons:

The motherboard bundle is assembled with the overclocked settings saved in the bios, would just be a case of screwing your motherboard bundle and psu to the case and then connecting a few cables into the relative slots ... all very simple really.
