It’s not that - it’s that it’s such a big difference on all levels for such a comparatively small amount of money, the extra futureproofing, efficiency and/or resell value down the line makes it pay off.

Ryzen 3600 is a significant step up, but only really counts if you have a super high end GPU.

16GB memory is a must and a 240gb ssd as well.

If you can afford to up the memory on the linked one and put a 1/2TB HDD, i'd go with that one, but there is no bad choice really

That 7nm Ryzen is totally worth the extra money, whatever GPU you have.

So go for that pc over this one? Also is CCL better than this brand?

CCL is a better and more well-known brand but if built properly with good components neither should pose an issue long-term.
Not bad and very well priced .
Not seeing the code here? Have been looking for something mid-range and this seems ok?
code has expired I think
Why is 16gb a must? I have 8gb and never seem to use it all up.

If you're playing any recent game in ultra graphics, in atleast 1080p, you'll need it.

On an 8GB machine, windows etc will naturally take up 1-2GB , which leaves you with 6-7GB at best.
Edited by: "ArcAndPie" 29th Sep
Nah, 8gb is fine for 1080p in ultra settings. I play AAA VR games buttery smooth with 8gb.
I used to find building a pc easy but haven`t done one for 15 - 20 years. My son want a basic gaming pc/laptop and I`m not sure what to get nowadays so much choice. I use to use CCL all the time

hi
you can download window for free by downloading the windows creation media tool online for free from their website and putting it on a usb.
then u simply just put the usb in your new pc and it downloads for you once steps are followed.
you will need a product key if you want windows updates which you can buy off ebay for a few quid.

Agreed, Have similar build myself, I planned to upgrade ram to 16gb but realistically it never throttles your system. I play 1080p gaming on high settings too. I will upgrade eventually but think it's worth looking into a better card first on this machine.

Which games are unplayable then with 8gb but perfectly smooth with 16?

Exactly. 8gb is fine for just gaming. If you're a wannabe fortnite streamer YouTube star who likes to run several VMs at the same time and compile visual studio code, then there's an argument for 16+

I’ve seen a few recent YouTube vids that show frame rates between 8gb 16gb and 32gb PCs and surprisingly there is pretty much no difference in frames per second between them all. However, I suspect with loading levels and in particular large open world games there will be some stuttering or longer waiting periods with 8gb. I also suspect it is essential to have an SSD drive to help with the 8gb, as paging to a mechanical HDD drive would be a disaster.

Errrm

Plenty of games have "Reccomended: 8GB of RAM" and a few even say 12GB now.

That means on an 8GB system you will struggle, as you won't have the full 8GB to use, only 6-7GB at most.

Yes it’s more about your CPU, GPU and how much GPU VRAM you have (and assuming you have an SSD too. I’ve never seen 8GB bottleneck a game significantly.

That’s not how it works, sorry. If it says recommended 8GB then they assume you are running an operating system and background tasks too so they mean you need 8GB RAM installed not total available. Also, I got told ‘I was a noob’ for looking at recommended specs before - not that I agree with that but RAM is rarely the limiting factor for gaming, and 8GB is a good start point for most. The people who need more than that already know they do.

I'm sorry, but I disagree. My computer was starting to struggle playing higher end games, but when I upgraded my RAM from 8 to 16GB it seemed to have fixed it.

And since that's all I upgraded, I can only assume that's what the problem was.

I do play in 1440p, though.

Your one example doesn’t make it right. There are a number of people in this thread including me who don’t think it’s a real limiting factor and in your case you could have all kinds of background stuff and other hardware that might be the problem. Anyway, with a GTX 1060 6GB your target is 1080p full settings not 1440p. Much of what you’re doing in games is using the GPU’s VRAM not main system memory and it’ll only be a real issue if you run out entirely and need to access from the hard disk/SSD.

Meh I don't know, I just feel 16GB is much better to future proof aswell, it's only a matter of time before you need that kind of memory, and it's not an expensive upgrade.

That’s not the point. It is a good upgrade but not before a better GPU, CPU, bigger SSD, etc. Basically if you buy this pre-built with 8GB it’ll be fine for 99% of people who buy it. The people who say it isn’t and are custom building will spec 16GB because they can but if I was working to a limited budget I’d start with 8GB. It’s way down the priorities list anyway and not a crippling thing like using a hard disk, a low-end GPU or a dual-core CPU.
Not a bad deal, but I will warn those that freshtech do use below average parts ie Psu and also their cases are quite smaller making gpu upgrades difficult. I have worked on these PCs and personally would use Scan/ccl & Overclockers.

They all cut corners a bit but the case (Kolink Nimbus RGB) is actually not bad and the PSU is a Fractal Design 80 Plus, better than the the Aerocool in the CCL - though it should be swapped later.
No operating system included?
Does this PC have wifi built in or is it just ethernet cable? It doesn’t say.

Exactly. For budget 1080p gaming on any new game, 8GB ram a 256gb SSD & a gpu 1060/amd 580 will be completely sufficient.
I have a similar ryzen build myself and I will soon upgrade the PSU from the cheap 500w to something with dual rails, then put in a Vega 64 or other budget but good performance card.
You will have a very capable machine for very little £.

I built my last gaming PC out of spare bits in the office but if I wanted one now I'd just buy something like this as it's all you really need and a lot of performance for the money.
Decent spec, just a shame they’ve really slumped on the mobo and ram. I suppose the price reflects that.

I'll attempt somewhat wise words for fm plus non trolls,
depending on what resolution/competitiveness/style of game you need >
if you have already played PC games with 1440p upwards then the 1060 isn't exactly for you, it would feel a backward step.
1060 is perfect for 1080p so are 580 4GB + 8GB RAM
580 8GB eats 1440p nicely (w.16GB but 8GB RAM ok)
590 felt smooth at 4k with a 1300X (all 4 cores 4GHz) stress tests plus Scum,ROE, KCDeliverance - 16GB RAM a must.

Now if you want to play FPS somewhat competitively you will use 144Hz min, likely 1080p no shadows etc

You want to play WOT, Witcher3, hell Skyrim any TV would be okay.

You want to endless Tabs Prawnhub 32GB RAM minimum.

Your monitor is the start for what PC you need (not want),
even the game you believe you want the PC for, can change in an update to need more RAM and Power, even the free ones.
At the end of the day it's up to you to buy and enjoy it, never have regrets and never say sorry unless you mean it.
