If you're short sighted, sure why not 8)
3 of these in a triple layout is great for a driving/flight sim rig setup.

But I agree, a very neiche product overall. If you only need to drive one display for games get a higher resolution display. The 144hz freesync will work in eyefinity but all 3 displays have to be indentical.

TL;DR; 3 of these would make a great replacement for VR in Sim Racing (Iracing, assetto corsa etc), 1080p is a limiting factor otherwise.
I can hardly type due my upsetness at the res and screen size of this :(


Edited By: ianbeany on Feb 25, 2017 21:18: because im worth it
In the market for a 1440p 32" Monitor myself, Amazon have a couple for around the £300 mark, one a no name Japanese and a basic Acer that uses an IPS Panel with only DVI & VGA inputs.
Pixel density will be frikkin awful on a screen that size.

ok my mistake but does it have rgb lights?

No, it's the 'Black Edition' which means it doesn't for that reason.

yes but whats the use of getting this when they re-released the ICX models of the same brand? this model you listed has over heating issues

No it doesn't. It was the FTW that had over heating problems and it got sorted. Also the ICX is about £80 more.

40-60Hz Freesync range according to AMD's website so no LFC support.
Although a HighDPI display with Freesync at all at this price is still an excellent deal.

As cheap as I've seen it for a 3gb one, and free delivery; scan normally charges a tenner. It's a pretty standard model which I don't think is heavily overclocked. It's not 6gb but then again

Don't forget the 3GB doesnt just have less ram it has slightly less cuda cores making it about 10% less powerful in many benchmarks
It's also 20% less money than the cheapest decent 6gb card that I can find. For 99% of gamers @1080p there will be no visual difference between the two cards just a psychological one, a nagging sense of inferiority not born out by reality.
True, but the 3GB hard limit will be a limiting factor going forward so you'll have to forego top texture settings on newer games whereas the 6GB version would be ok with them. As far as GPU muscle is concerned both cards are close enough that a couple years from now it won't matter which one you have.
I would watch that video on the original post.
3gb is enough for pretty much every new game at ultra as of now at 1080p. Newer future games that demand more than this, you may need to accept that the 1060 won't be powerful enough to run at ultra, but not due to vram but because its core speed isn't enough. 1060 doesn't SLI either so it's even more of a moot point.

Deus Ex Mankind Divided needs 4GB+
Why would you buy this crippled GTX 1060 when you can get the white 8GB RX480 for under a fiver more? oO

Or should I go for this one?
Get 2 of these instead of that old 480.
​old 480? The RX 480 is just as good if not better (especially if its the 8GB Model) and 2 of these? You do know that the 1060s don't support SLI
I do, , my RX 480 has multi-GPU support though; Vardx has had his 480 a whole day!

Haha, just preempting buyer's remorse. But from what I see, the two cards are as good as eachother. They leapfrog eachother depending on the game. Plus... I got my 480 for 20 quid less.

I'm sure I paid this price for my 128GB card last year (Samsung though. Crazy this hasn't come down in price...

U1 or U3 speed?

Memory and storage prices are always incredibly volatile. Though they do gradually decline in price over a long period, short term year to year they are subject to quite large fluctuations due to supply, natural disaster and currency fluctuations.

Wait long enough and they will be cheaper, but these are the current market prices.

I bought the V3 and it comes with both intel and AMD mounting brackets. Keeps my 4690k at around 30c idle and around 50c under load (BF1).

I've found it great value for money although it is loud when under strain!

Anyone used this on an AMD FX 8-core care to share their experience?


Although Scan's page indicates AMD socket capability, the spec they quote only shows Intel. Having acquired a FX8350, I would be interested to know how it performs.

Can someone please explain if this would be best monitor to pair with gtx 980?
Its a good monitor , its just you won't get the added benefit of freesync as you have a Nvidia card (g-sync monitors Are about £70-£100 more.)
Can someone please explain if this would be best monitor to pair with gtx 980?
Only has a 55 - 75hz freesync range on a TN panel. You'd be better off with a 23" IPS display at the circa £120 price point. I wouldn't say this deal was cold... simply lukewarm :p
I'm also in the market for a new monitor around the 24" size. There's lots of choices though even lots more cheaper on Scans site. Any recommendations would be appreciated.

I owned an iiyama syncmaster crt in the late 90s. it was the Rolls Royce of monitors, cost me over 500 quid. Not sure about their latest monitors but you can be assured that they are not an unknown brand.


​Same here. Superb CRT monitors. No idea these days, but they're certainly not a new name. Monitor gets good reviews at higher prices.

I'm disappointed in MSI for not keeping it as a single slot card. I get the point that it is a dual slot fan anyways, but now if you would like to fit it in the old dell optiplex 380 MT or similar, then now you will have to go for Zotac instead, which is a single slot card, but not a low profile. Why didn't they keep the design of its predecessor gtx 750ti is beyond me. Good deal, though for LP card.

I think he means 64bit OS eg win764 ..cheaply available from Ebay (might also need the DVD install disc too.

Is it just me or are the prices of SSD drives not coming down? Nearly two years ago I bought a 240GB one for this price.
They're starting to go up now mainly due to NAND flash shortages, too much demand and not enough supply from the factories.

Bought the LED kit a while ago. Found it very poor, had a mind of its own...
Hopefully they have improved it, but I'm not gonna bite
bought these a couple of weeks ago for £37.99 from ebuyer. bit overpriced at £56.99. will buy another set when they drop below £45 though as their decent fans
one expensive fan kit lol
I would just buy fans separately. No need for LED lights.
Wanting RGB fans on mine but would have to go NZXT due to owning hue+.

​not sure if it is but I saw these at £3.19 at Watford branch. even bought one myself and was going to post the deal but someone had posted it already.

Watford boy as well then?

All I did was see the deal, came here and posted it. Im not sure about how others seem to view this but if I had got out, hopped into the car and gone to staples to get these, would it have been worth the £4 for my time effort and mileage. Probably!

I understand that others might not think this or have a way around it and thats good for them. At least this way there is no wild goose chase!

Building your own PC doesn't seem like a hobby, if it's something you only do every 3-4 years.
But as llennyyyy says there's no need to mock anyone who wants to build their own, and it's hardly manual labour, sitting in your underwear plugging things in. One of the simplest things to do, when it comes to tech.
I have rebuilt my pc 4 times in the past 2 years including the initial setup, why? To clean it thoroughly or upgrade core components which included full clean. If you buy a pre built pc because you don't want to run the risk of putting it together yourself or don't have that kind of time to do it but will easily sit through a Lord of the Rings film (3 hours tops) then the assumption is that it'll just get run in to the ground, cpu compound will eventually dry up, blankets of dust will appear and become a fire hazard if it doesn't short the circuit beforehand. There's plenty of reasons to spare those few hours every now and then. It preserves the performance and extends life expectancy. It's one of the things I like doing anyway but appreciate it's not everyones cup of tea. I just think when it comes to owning a high/mid range PC there an expense that comes with it and you should have confidence and time to be able to strip it out every now and then.

Priced up on overclockers (cos I'm bored) the seperate exact bits would come in at just less than £800 including a full price windows 10 oem.

Having someone build it, test it and install everything for £20ish seems worth it to me.

There are some weird people out there who like manual labour and prefer to waste their lives building it themselves. Try to ignore them ;D


​you know people actually enjoy building pc's right? the same as some people enjoy building cars, renovating houses, same principal. but if you can get a pc build with the exact components you want for a competitive price and aren't comfortable doing it themselves then great... but don't knock people and label them weird for wanting to do it themselves, it's not life wasting when you consider it a hobby.
I pick up the( rx 480 model i5 6500 8 gig off ram 240 ssd and a 1tb hard drive ) for 700 pound from scan on black Friday it's been great to use also you get 3 years warranty.
No SSD? At this price, that's criminal.

Sorry, I made a mistake, the drive in the failing system is Sandisk 120gb.

Wanted to add that two weeks ago Windows started giving me constant warnings saying that my hard disk is going to fail.
No disrespect intended but i've never heard of Windows saying that your hard disk is gong to fail.... that seems very much like a virus to me..
Event viewer will show errors if it can't write to the disk properly

Usually it's the other way for me, Windows saying "everything's fine, nothing to worry about" then when I finally get some SMART data out of it it's all 'Reallocated sectors: 90% of the disk is broken'.
LOL typical windows eh.. oh the joys..

Ordered and heat added, I always end up ordering them for Raspberry Pi's amongst other things so I'll stick these in a draw until I need them, Well worth it at this price.

True enough. :-)

I dont know whether i had a faulty memory card but this memory card from Sandisk made my phone extremely hot to the point i was too scared to put it under my pillow at night. It would drain my battery in a few hours and end up killing its battery life
Why would anyone in their right mind put their phone under their pillow? Your brain probably now has Wi-Fi, think of all that incoming data an inch away from your brain 8 hours a day oO
My ex husband always did as his 54 yr old 'granny friend' used to text him goodnight haha. His new married over 50 friend does also, but then he's not 'in his right mind'

"i snoozed and i loozed" Price now £16.19 + £5.48 postage

You can still get the postage for £4 - just click the 'collect from Bolton' option, so it changes to zero, and then select 2-5 days and it'll change to £4.
But yes, the price seems to have gone up a bit, it's now £16.19, so £20.18 delivered.

It has HDCP so just get a DVI to HDMI adapter/cable if you need HDMI so badly.

Just bought one of these off ebay for £42. Looks good on youtube. You can plug these into any usb port if you have the correct usb to header lead I guess. I've given up on the front panel usb so I'd just grab it off the mobo

Been thinking abiut picking one of these up, anybody thats got one got some information on it? Is it any good?
I have it in my Corsair 540 air case running 4 strips and another 4 strips along the back of my desk it's a nice bit of kit if you play a lot of games it also gives the features to show temps/fps and there is a mobile app to allow you to change the colours/patterns away from the desktop. Only not to have is make sure you have a usb header free on mb.
I got mine for free with a motherboard purchase a few months ago. Quite good lighting effect but they give 4 LED strips and after just 2 months 2 of the strips stopped working. They sent out a replacement set on warranty, but I ended up having to pay customs of ~£15.

Not sure if it happened because I ran it with the lights on all the time (so about 5 hours a day), but surely LEDs should be able to do that. I have an excellent power supply so wasn't a surge issue...
