Fantastic deal for the I7 ! heat left !

Wow amazing price... Alien ware similar spec is £2k
#3
Alienware is a ripoff - Why would you ever compare anything to it.
#4
Obviously need to add a graphics card, and your on your way.
#5
i7 prices gone down, so not so brilliant
#6
Intel Core i5 2500 Combo - No PSU Included

Is this also a good price? What else would i need
#7
I am looking to get a new PC. I do not understand all the stats etc, to be honest I don't understand the inside of PC's. I am just looking for a very powerful PC to play new and future top PC games, loads of memory for downloads (Films, music, itunes) and possibly to add 3D content, graphics card and monitor........ so is this any good for that, or what's best?

Thanks.
#8
HSH - can't seem to find (m)any proper reviews of the case though...
#9
Just as a heads-up it looks like the new Sandy Bridge Core i5 2500 is actually faster than the Core i7 950 depending on what you're gonna to use it for...

Might be worth looking at the benchmarks to make sure....

Well that's how you compare prices to see which is the bargain or you'd only have the 1 price.

In my experience Scan have shocking customer service. I would never buy from them again. Happy to take your money but do only what they're "required by law". If they can get away with it they will. Don't expect too much from Mr. Raja's company.

The case doesn't have a PSU in it, but one is supplied as part of the bundle - the 650W Antec TruePower PSU - a very good PSu by all reviews (for the money).
You will have to fit the PSU in the case - in fact the whole lot is a DIY kit, nothing is already "built" for you.

to be honest, a pc is just bits that really can only connect a certain way, therefore making it a lot easier than it actually looks
for example, memory can only fit in a certain type of slot (usually have 2 or 3 on a motherboard) and fits one way round only, again a cpu can only fit a certain way etc etc
only problem is if you try to force things into the wrong socket but to be fair its only a 5 or 6 piece jigsaw ;)
im sure anyone could build one if they really tried, the hardest bit is usually the bios setup but even then they have optimal settings
then the fun begins installing an operating system, again this is easy but i guess thats only when you know how and can seem very daunting to the unsure
im not sure buying self-builds is always cheaper these days but what it does offer is the choice on components, usually, extra/longer warranty on individual items etc and self satisfaction that the pc your using was handmade by your good self ;)

Either Or.

Sabertooth X58

P6X58D-E

X58 Review "The Sabertooth also represents excellent value for money, as it’s only fractionally more expensive than the Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R (rev. 2) or the Asus P6X58D-E, but has noticeably superior gaming and SATA 6Gbps performance."

these packages always fool you though, when you actually check them indivisually priced you only saving few pounds even if that, but buy separately and you get to choose exactly what you want and a case that you like.
#30
Very tempted with the i7 deal. What addition cooling would this particular system require? (preferably from Scan so I can buy at the same time). Are the cooling solutions easy to install or are we talking thermal paste everywhere? Thanks in advance for any constructive replies.
#31
the cpu's are retail so no extra cooling is required (retail comes with a fan), you could check the case out and see if theres room for extra fans but that just adds to the noise
#32
Though if you did want to add after-market cooling, something like the Noctua NH14 or the Thermalright Ultra 120 would be good options. Alternatively you could try a self-enclosed water cooling system like the Corsair H50.

I was impressed by the Sabretooth's specs, I was going to go for that myself though in the end I plumped for a Sandy Bridge-based motherboard instead.

Not quite correct there I'm afraid - the i7 deal comes with a PSU but the i5 deal does not.

tempted by the i7 but no money....

I'd go for the i5 2500 deal on this one. Sandy Bridge > Nehalem and Silverstone > Thermaltake.

Good price for some top quality components with the i7 950 deal (especially like that it comes with such a good PSU) but for the majority of users the cheaper Sandy Bridge system is probably the better bang-for-buck tbh and the money saved can be used towards a quality graphics card. Very few users need all the power on offer from i7s hyperthreading or tri-channel memory bandwidth, certainly very few (if any) games are going to utilise it.

Having said all this be aware that the 2500 is not the 'k' version of the chip so you've got hardly any headroom to overclock if you were hoping to squeeze a bit more out of the system in a few years time.

Personally unless you really desperately need to upgrade at the moment I'd let the current SB format settle into some sort of reliablity: too many reports of the latest boards having niggling problems and uncertainty over the new cpus' memory controllers ability to withstand higher voltages imo. Always the same with the latest technology - you'll pay a premium price to be a beta tester for a few months whilst all the early problems are ironed out.
#38
Great deal imo I have sent for the package. Heat added and thank you for the post.
#39
I only joined here to tell you that the guy who said SCAN has bad customer service is a complete divvy.
Scan have a superb, 100% reliable customer service dept!!....unlike Overclockers UK who are idiots.

PS: I dont work for SCAN, but i am a customer with previous builds.LOL

Ordered an i5 2500K with the corsair memory on Saturday. Scan confirmed my order, took payment and this morning sent me an email saying the items were out of stock and could I wait a week or two for them to come back into stock. Sorry but you've processed my payment and expect me to wait 2 weeks for goods? Disgraceful service. Fancy going to a restaurant paying up front and the waiter says they're too busy please come back in 2 weeks for your meal!! Shame on Scan and would never buy anything off them again.

BTW cancelled my order and let's see how long the refund takes. Luckily I've got legal protection
