This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

IMPORTANT NOTE:
*****ADDED NOTE: THE PSU is a 600w evo labs, it is a perfect fine PSU for this Build, this is not a system with A PSU with the intentions of adding a GPU, if your intentions are that, seek another deal from the start, *********

***Then again how many of us actually upgrade are PC's?.... do we?..... most say they will upgrade laters on,.. but what we really do. we sell it and we start again..

back to the main feature:

Following on from my 3200G Post yesterday with the Ebay/CCL deal.

Here is an interested package, this is aimed at folks who are looking at the 3rd generation of the vega 8 CPU the Ryzen 3200G

Lets break this down to see what sort of deal do we have here.

Ryzen 3200G 4Cores/4Threads £79.00

480 SSD unknown brand typical cheapest on the market £42

8GB DDR 2400mhz, Ryzen loves higher but for what it is, unknown brand from £24
"Could be a single stick.. or 2x4GB who knows, does it matter with the kinda spec not really..

600W Quiet Power Supply Featuring Large 120mm Cooling Fan £25+
So doesn't state brand, but its 600W!! so that impressive alone for this build.

**** seller just reply'd back to me: 600w evo labs

No doubt it will come with A320 Motherboard and if it fits the Ryzen 3200G then its got to be a decent one, so not many worries here on this. £43

**** seller just reply'd back to me: asrock a320 m-hdv

CIT Seven case, £30, one of my favs, nice RGB on the front, Nice RGB fan on the back,

300mb Wifi Card£12

Talking a £255

& this is the reason why the CCl/Ebay Deal went HOT HOT HOT HOT.... was 300 something down to £258....... so it were a nice deal for a prebbuilt for the price of a self build price pretty much!....

Now if you were a person who added windows 10 on that CCL DEAL that were another £99! (85 after code) so £258+ 85 = £342 ( that had 1TB £33 rather then 480SSD £42)

where as this one with windows 10 + £10 more Storage cost! comes in at £315

So if you WERE looking for that VEGA!....... & if u WERE wanting windows 10 put on for you, this actuly works out a nice deal......

seller on ebay has some good rep too...

As for the "stated" Benchmark info for fortnight....... im just going to laugh, "see youtube for what this can do "3200G 8gb"

To summary this deal up, Your getting £250 worth of parts!........ and paying an extra £65 for the windows 10 install and build charge which comparing to the rest of the market!. thats a typical decent deal alone.

Self builders will jump on and say this is a bad deal and u can get codes for windows 10 from the usual place for peanuts but not everyone likes to do this, meanwhile some will support my idea.

3 Year Warranty including parts/labour included.

& and dont forget your 5% TOPCASHBACK: £15

It's a unknown PSU, 600W will probably be less than 400W of actual power

A Windows 10 key is under £3.


As stated in the post, im aware.... but not everyone does that, and they pay the higher up firms £85 installation.....

ebuyer/ccl/scan:
part prices + Build charge + £79/89 Windows installation charge / key.
This is £255 part price + £60 for build & Windows installation charge / key.

This will play Fortnite at 1080p on low settings, mostly above 60fps, or 720-900p at some medium-high settings. It's not terrible. It's a shame it's not a b450 motherboard, because you can overclock the graphics part of this APU quite well so that it's around 2400g performance. If I was building and selling one of these myself, I'd probably be looking for about £220-250 for it, but I wouldn't make it with such poor RAM. I would also not use an Asrock motherboard, as their Bios upgrades and AMD APUs (certainly on their B450 HDV models) are a bit dicey, in my personal experience.

It's really not a terrible buy - and it should be good for future upgrades.
Isn't it 8 threads?
I think if you buy this and use it as a base to add an entry-level gaming GPU you'll be mostly fine.

The PSU sounds utterly awful and I'd want rid of that pretty quick as well, if it's this one look at the reviews on Amazon for starters:

My mistake. Learn something new every day

I think if you're going to add a low end GPU anyway you may as well buy a 1500X or even a 1600.

Probably right on the CPU, but as a 'package' it's not a bad starting point here for pre-built, even if some of the components are bargain basement.

For sure. I just think if you're planning on getting a GPU to begin with better to save the money and get what you actually need than waste it. If this is all you would need then go for it.

It's something you could add later though if you couldn't afford it now. But that PSU looks really bad from what I've read - it bothers me a little when sellers fit unbranded/dangerous PSUs; the bigger, more well-known builders wouldn't do that.
Heat for the work. As for the windows 10 for 3 quid crowd, might as well save that 3 quid, you're still stealing it anyway

Not quite - MS t&c's in Europe were found to be an overstretch on perpetual licences and not a infringement of copyright. MS challenged twice and got a very stern warning that limiting the resale of perpetual licences they had already received monies for would see them with the biggest fine they have ever seen. This opened many companies that purchased licenced pc (cheaper than bespoke) whilst having their own licence to offload those unused extra licences.
just done some changes to the bottom of the post. "alternatives"
5% topcashback from ebay so thats another £15 off the price. Voted HOT.

Also comes with a 3 year warranty covering parts & labour which you would not get with self build.

Windows 10 Pro retails at £219.99 itself - yes you can get it for £10 off ebay but this will be a fully legit license version.

but it has a 3 year parts & labour warranty - if it fails they will swap it for new anyway. If you buy the part direct you wont get a 3 year warranty and they certainly wont fit it for you.
My personal advice on this product, get it for what its intended to be for a vega system, if that is what your sole intentions are for, it is an excellent deal for that reason subject to wanting them to put windows on it and them building it, the 3 year warrenty is a great addition too,

if you plan on upgrading laters on such as adding a GPU, hold on, the seller has come back to me asking me for some builds which he can put on to Ebay,... so after the holidays ill be back in touch with him and suggest afew ideas and see if he comes back with some high prem spec extras. i.e a 3200G with a better PSU for "upgrades" and ill throw some other ideas too him as well .. see what he can do.

im done for the holidays, Have a great one! and Merry Christmas

That would be great if that's what it was but let's face it, these £3 are almost definitely academic licences or MSDN keys, not someone with a stack of unused Windows 10 keys... it's not illegal anyway, it 'violates the EULA' so you decide if you can live with that.

Most decent power supplies come with 3 years or longer warranty. It's up to you, I wouldn't want to risk anything on cheap power supplies again, even if under warranty: I wouldn't do it with a phone charger and I wouldn't do it with a PC.

Unlikely to be MSDN licences as across the multitude I have for multiple contracts I can see precisely where all are assigned and used.

Academic like nhs will be volume licenced.

I can tell you I saw a batch of 50k sold and they went for far less than £3 a pop and also know who bought and that the next step after ended on ebay along side batches of PC's cleared out.

The problem MS has is they modelled on their terms which are now invalid in Europe and scupper them in disabling as catching legit users would leave them liable. Anyway though it is still peanuts for what they charge in the commercial sector.
The gaming tag and using fortnite as example just doesn't sit right with me is all. A hell of a lot of folks could be duped into buying this for gaming when it's worse than the consoles the kids probably already have

I recall there’s a way of looking up the source but haven’t done it for ages, I think you can lookup the Product ID and determine what channel it came from.

They’re not from scrapped PCs though, maybe some are but there’s no way tons of scrapped sourced ones appear on eBay just after Windows 10 launched when it did - and a lot were previously MSDN and academic as I’d seen them myself, having bought a few for temporary use. That’s also why Microsoft sometimes shuts down the keys and closes the associated MSDN account.

I would not be surprised if these cheap pre-built systems used £3 keys like this with their Windows installs.

Please reread what I put.

The person I commented on said all were illegitimate and you should not use.

The 50k were not from scrapped PC's but were assets sold along side the scrapping of pcs where multi licences exist . The firm that bought those does not resell individually but some of those PC's appeared on ebay by a firm that was also selling cheap licences (a few pc's on the list were not what you would class as usual).

Prior to the court rulings the corporates (example given above) could not realise these assets and I would concur prior to this they would be illegitimate. The court rulings have enabled the resale of perpetual licenses.

You said they weren’t MSDN and I’m saying you can get MSDN and academic ones. There’s a difference between illegitimate and illegal - reusing keys from the wrong channel isn’t illegal but it does violate the EULA, even if the EU rules it’s ok and Microsoft doesn’t do a lot about it as it still makes their figures look good so it usually works just fine.

Whether you consider it legitimate use is down to each person. I don’t expect a ‘legit licence’ for £3 but I sometimes do it on laptops or computers I don’t use that often.

I said unlikely at present to be MSDN as from the multiple subscriptions (I have many multiple contracts across many regions) I can see and unassign any I wish at any time. This side has changed beyond recognition over the last decade.

I also did not state they were from scrapped pc's this was you misreading.

What I have given is an example where I have seen 50k licences sold by a corporate and end up on ebay (that was one batch and not directly involved just saw the invoice).

As to MS and their EULA that would be the one ruled to breach European consumer rights and be illegal if acted upon with a penalty beyond anything they have seen before! The example given in the ruling was that a car company would be over reaching to the resale of a car claiming it to be a copyright infringement when they have already received monies for them once. N.B. there were two rulings - outside Europe it is different.

However, as also stated, the amount of money MS make here compared to the cost they charge elsewhere with licencing this is peanuts to them.

I have no need myself to buy licences but I also would not advice against doing so either at this moment in time. Before the rulings were made I would have been more cautious on this advice.

Yes but licenses bought on OVS have no 3rd party usage rights or resale value. It's a personal choice, just accept it's wrong and dont advocate it over legitimate purchases to people who dont know better

Feel free to read the EU ruling in detail but I disagree that all licences on ebay are illegal just like anything else sold on ebay - some are some are not. If you buy something sold as legit and it is not you have a right to reject (and yes uou can check)

This site gives a summary on the ability to resell perpetual licences and that they do have value.
