Ive been asked over n over is this deal any good:
My 2 Cents: Zen+ Ryzen 2700x 8Core 16Thread | 3070 GPU?????
for only £1199.99
lets strip it down.
Ryzen 2700x CPU £165
ASUS PRIME B450M-A V2 Motherboard £67
(Scrap PCPP at +12 more then V1, it cost them £1 more to buy this)
CoolerMaster Hyper 212 RGB Cooler £35
Corsair 650W CV650 PSU £52
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 8GB from £575
500GB BarraCuda 510 £65
1TB BarraCuda Hard Drive £35
EG Diamond Case £50
16GB DUAL CHANNEL. I WILL REPEAT EBUYER HAS DUAL CHANNEL. EBUYER HAS DUAL CHANNEL.
Guide Valuation in parts: 1114.....
So they add on "windows n charge £85 inline with AWD".
Their price: £1199.99
The high charge of windows which is inline with the likes of AWD, and sadly this is forced on you, but folks do buy this, but they need to be aware of the cost, so defo not a pali style price here, some members will moan thats its got the older Zen+ with a new graphics card and that performance will drop on this combo, are they correct?-> Yes.
is there a better alitnative for 1200? Then 2700x/3070 atm: No. as the alt to this would be a 5600x / 3060Ti which should come under cheaper and the current released 3060ti are high then the budget versions. and if this means both are at the same overall cost then the 2700x/3070 would be a better fitment to some members..
so sometimes the odd ball Combo's work..
but their is 1 further element, which cant be ignored.
1) This Case, Can u please just get rid of this case for once n for all n get in 2021!
(some times i need to have personal dig at firms direct on the busiest website then they start to listen, nothing beats a pubic bashing)
I DO HAVE SOME GOOD NEWS, EBUYER HAS SLIGHTLY COME IN TO THE 2010S AND added dual channel Ram. and about time.
a deal which should not work does work if we can get rid of that case in strange times.
- maybe give them a call?.. if its a no.
-- use this as a guide template to price challenge the others, once u get ur quote. swap shop then.
