Good offer for the 1060 6GB model, comes with a bag and a games bundle, which includes Warhammer: Vermintide 2 (Full download) It's only £30 more than the 3GB 1060 model without the extras, so seems worth the extra for this lot imo

Free Next Day del with code FREE200

A little on the heavy side for me but there’s no denying this is a good deal!!! Heat!!!!!!!!
The screen quality is the difference between this being hot or cold. If its IPS, its hot, TN cold. Lots of us bought the FX503VM-DM042T and the screen was TN, (even though advertised as IPS.) and its a real shocker.

Get this confirmed before you take the plunge. You've been warned!

It doesn’t say IPS on the screen specs so I’m guessing it isn’t. For the price you’re more than likely not getting IPS
If it was i7, it would be perfect

I7 isn't going to make a blind bit of difference in 99.9% of games. I don't know why people put such value in it.

Because they use it not just as a gaming machine ?

Would probably make a big difference for VR.

That's the way I'm reading it Persian. If most of the time your going to hook this up to an external display the screen isn't an issue. If you want to use this as a laptop all the time, best to buy something with an IPS display. Don't even think about anything like Photoshop on the TN screen.
Any advice about a gaming machine i7, 1060,8gb desktop or laptop... Iam open to everything
I’m in a situation where I only really want to play games like age of empires 2, total war, runescape, potentially guild wars/wow and some mobas. Is this overkill?

If it was just for Runescape (Better be OSRS) then yeah I would say it was, however for the MMO's I'd say it's a nice piece of kit and you should go for it if you have the cash, I own an ASUS laptop and I cannot fault their support/warranty.

Yeah I can get this but it seems a lot to play some older classics. Yeah it would be rsos, unfortunately my good account carried over to rs3. Currently have a 2013 MacBook Pro and that plays rs very well, it’s just a shame aoe is Windows only and total war/wow run terribly. Thanks for your response

No problem. You could find a laptop with similar specs for a bit less, but you'd probably be sacrificing the SSD. Hopefully you find something!
OP, please put the model number in the description header

It's difficult to tell what it is at a glance

Not really. Better VR requires higher res with a high (and stable) frame rate. The GPU is what matters most for both.

The only time a better CPU is really going to make a difference with gaming is when there's a lot of AI characters on screen, but I can't think of anything that would trouble the CPU in this.

I suppose there is that to be fair. I just wanted to point out to those looking primarily for a laptop to game on that the CPU is a distant second to GPU and that particular i5 is more that sufficient for anything you're going to throw at it currently.

And that high frame rate needs to be coupled with accurate head / wand tracking with a minimum of two tracking cameras, all controlled and monitored by the CPU.

It may be overkill now but in 2 years time, you'll be glad you went for the 1060.
