what an amazing deal for an i7 930! paid over double this for a worse set up about a year and a half ago

add an hd 5850 for £115 from play, plus a decent power supply and you are laughing

amazing price! HOT

What an odd way to sell gear... without the PSU - is this just a box of bits or is it actually pre-built, but just missing the Power supply?

Almost all the drawbacks of building your own, (still left with the feeling of "will it boot!") with none of the choice or pleasure in picking your own components!

It's a Motherboard bundle (ram + processor + motherboard) with a 1TB hdd, dvd rw and case, thrown in.

It's usually done like this for upgrading, also with this kit enthusiasts may want to choose there own loyal PSU brand over what they would suggest as the PSU is the most important part of a system.

If you price these things separately it's as if they give you a free case really.

Just roughly:
board 125
cpu 200
hdd 40
dvdrw 20
ram 85

Total 470

Not sure it's that hot a deal really.
#8
whats a good PSU to go with this any ideas
#9
Not bad, although as tooner said you're basically getting a crappy case for free. If it was one of the better budget cases (like the Coolermaster Elite 430) then it might be a decent deal.
#10
I maybe being dumb but are all these parts already put together and it's just a case of adding psu and graphics card? only asking as i'm looking at buying a new pc and doing it this way instead of a pre build would say me around £200

Yes, just make sure you get a half decent PSU, not some budget junk - a decent brand with about 500w will be fine for a single-card system. As far as Scan goes, the Silverstone Tech. SLi Dual ST50EF-Plus 500W Power Supply (PSU) for £45 is a decent enough deal.

Graphics card wise theres some ATI 5850s on Play for £115 but im not sure if they'll be honoured - it's a pre release price. The 6870 would be my card of choice to go with this but the stock is very limited everywhere at the moment - an Asus GTX 470 for £185 also on scan would be a good second choice.
#12
Just to add those items are on the today only page

exactly tooner - not hot - just scan throwing in a £30 case after you've already spent £450+ with em!!!!

:(

The case isn't too bad, from a quick look I think it works out as £50 less overall? So you're getting the DVD-RW and Case free really ... but for someone looking to build a whole system I still think it's a hot deal
#18
So how difficult for a newbie would it be to put all these parts together?

There's plenty of good guides online.

This seems decent - http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/274745-13-step-step-guide-building - not used it myself but seems very detailed
#20
Cheers for the help , just got to decide if i'm brave enough to do it myself or pay extra for a prebuild.

i5/i7 CPUs will go down in price soon, because the new Intel Sandy Bridge CPU will be released in January 2011. So either wait for the newest CPU, or save money and wait for the prices to go down for the older CPU generation.
#22
Look like it doesn't comes with an operating system, so when you start adding all these extras is it still worth it?
#23
It's been a few months since I checked computer components, USB 3 on mother boards was just coming in, this looks to have it. Seems good?

How much do you think Sandy Bridge will be? And how much will i7 be dropping. I've been waiting ages for an i5 system but didn't go ahead with it.
#25
If you work on that theory re new product due out and price should drop then you would never buy a computer and parts. Constantly changing market. MY pc from ten years ago still does everything but games. Looking at new pc so will start just below top end and scan is local but this doesn't strike me as hot.
#26
good spec, i paid this for just the memory, chip, mobo and HD! All runs nicely though!

Intel have a refresh about once a year with the next one due to take place in about 5 weeks time so in this case it might well be worth waiting.
The update is for the mainstream platform whereas this is the premium platform so it's hard to say how pricing will be affected.
Once Sandy Bridge is released I imagine that the x58 platform will seem redundant unless you need more than 4 cores right now or massive amounts of RAM.
I think this will look horribly overpriced come January.

I can't decide between this one

and this one

I assume this system is going to need a cpu cooler too.

I would go with the silverstone, its cheaper and modular cables are much nicer - you can disconnect the ones you dont need.

CPU is retail boxed so comes with a cooler - not the best, especially if you want to overclock, but gets the job done!

The Corsair you linked to is nice but out of stock at Scan, they have this one though http://www.scan.co.uk/products/600w-corsair-cmpsu-600cx-builder-series-80-eff-120mm-fan-single-12v-rail-atx-ps-2

I also like (I bought one when it was £65 and then Scan had for £58, sold out now) http://www.ebuyer.com/product/159920

I did have a 400w Corsair but when I bought my GTX460 the fan on the PSU went so loud I couldn't stand it. I am now of the opinion that I will go for around 600w when building PC's with fairly power hungry graphics cards.

It’s worth reading detailed reviews as the way that fan speeds ramp up under heavier load varies a lot. Sites like SilentPCReview look into this issue very closely.
Of course if you have decent case cooling that helps take the strain of the P/S as well and even better if you have a case which houses the P/S at the bottom in its own chamber as keeps it separate from the main heat sources.
And not forgetting that the more efficient a P/S the easier it is to make it quieter as it’s producing less heat as waste.
Or you can go the whole hog and use an 80Plus Gold rated P/S and install it in the lower chamber of the case and just for good measures make it a fanless P/S. That should keep pretty quiet. :)

It wasn't an issue when I first built the PC as I didn't think I was going to be playing games and was using the onboard graphics. That Corsair ramped up very fast, the air it was pumping out was barely warm. The rest of my system is pretty cool (and quiet) with decent ventilation and CPU cooler so it was just the extra power draw from the card that caused it.

The Antec I linked to stays almost silent even when gaming now so I have a quiet PC again.

Apart from, I could do with a better case, lol. how about this one? http://www.scan.co.uk/products/fractal-design-define-r3-black-pearl-mid-tower-case-w-o-psu

Sounds as if the fan controller on the P/S isn't so clever; which model is it? Corsair have some decent units but they use various OEMs to build them including Seasonic who are a big favourite of mine. I just managed to get a good price on the X-400 Gold fanless; I hate fans that I can't control myself, I'm a fan control freak. oO

I thought it was the other way around and Corsair built for Seasonic?

Yea, I hate fans i can't control too! lol Fanless PSU would be good.

The Corsair 400w I had was the CX, yea the controller on it was far too eager to ramp up the fan, 400w was enough to power everything but that fan was just mental.

Maybe I shouldn't have recommended the CX600w earlier! Stay with the VX and TX(?), lol.

No. Seasonic make some of Antec’s models as well. For a list of who makes what power supply for what company go to this link – http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/psu-manufacturer-oem,2729.html

I like antecs truepower series, got the 750W version, although its not fully modular all the built in connectors are used in my case, plus it is smaller than most bronze certified supplies which fits my tight case well

Same here, the cables that are not modular needed to be used anyway.
