Why does it say Fortnite in your title?

Its because of kids


Oh, I know why it's in there. I'm asking WHY it's in there
I'm building my first PC because of your post, extremely informative....

Love these post, keep it up!!...

Heat.
the posts Headline i just copy form the website lol... however....... i dislike fortnight so im removing it lol....!
the RAM is dire but otherwise this would be a cracking system for 1080p gaming/general desktop stuff
Link is broken.

Found it on the website. RAM is a bit slow I would pay the extra £12 and get 3000mhz RAM. Solid system for 1080p gaming. I built a friend a similar system but with a 1060 and a Ryzen 1200 and it's a solid 1080p 60FPS PC.

The RAM is fine. 8GB of basic DDR4 is better than less ‘quality stuff’. The unbranded, unnamed PSU is what would bother me - seems this is a common corner-cutter component.
In relation to these AWD-IT builds being posted, has anyone any opinions on AWD-IT as a company, good or bad?? I'm thinking of purchasing a build from them but the reviews I have read have been mixed to say the least...
I'd say ignore the component list at the top, and look at what you can actually buy for this sort of money.

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 1600 3.2 GHz 6-Core Processor
Motherboard: ASRock B450M Pro4-F Micro ATX AM4 Motherboard
Memory: Corsair Vengeance LPX 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3000 Memory
Storage: Kingston A400 480 GB 2.5" Solid State Drive
Video Card: XFX Radeon RX 570 8 GB Video Card
Case: Deepcool MATREXX 30 MicroATX Mini Tower Case
Power Supply: be quiet! System Power 9 500 W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply

Total: £416.47

£17 more gets you, a much better CPU 6c/12t and CCL have the AF version which is a 12nm 1600, so basically an R5 2600, you get a better motherboard, 16GB of DDR4 3000MHz RAM, double the SSD size, and a GPU with enough VRAM to last beyond 2020, and a decent PSU as well!

Warranty on most parts is 2-3 years.

If anyone wants it built I'll beat AWD-IT and do it free!
AMD Ryzen 5 3400G 3.7GHz 4 Core

Is this a viable chip to use until I could buy a dedicated graphics card?

Thanks in advance.
Some people will never put together their own pc.
For many the extra is worth it for peace of mind.
I bit the bullet a few years ago and now I've done a few but I have had stressful moments.
Its easy but it's not foolproof
But I'd just buy the bits and if it all goes Pete Tong just try and find some reasonably priced pc repair bloke to bail you out.
Once you've done it you'll be fine lol

Its viable but there are games that won't enjoy not having a dedicated gfx card.
Mainly newer games like metro exodus.
But its ok for older titles.
I'd only use one for a light gaming pc i had no intention of buying a card for.
Its the same price as a 2600x. The value is in not needing a gfx card. Once you put one in its lost the point and you could have got a 6 core instead for cheaper.

forget the 3400G, its total over price'd for what it is, stick with a 3200G, much cheaper not missing much and when u can stick a gpu its not that far behind a 2600 with the right tweeks on many games (cpu is £79.), and the 3400G(£115...) which is the same price as a 2600 and ur not getting the performance, least with the 3200G, ur aint paid addtional!.

remove the RX570 from one of them, basic the same except case.

Add the GPU laters on, even get a used one if the price is good.

as the guy above said about the 1600, hes bob on.. ive covered it previously here:

hotukdeals.com/dea…206

or the 1200...

hotukdeals.com/dea…832

both have some advice on.

going back to this one:

hotukdeals.com/dea…867
forgot to mention, it also has an option of a 1200 / 1030 GPU, as for GPU goes its a bit ...... so what u could do take a note of the model name and give CCL a call. say u want this white case one with the 1200 but instead of the 1030 how much extra....
the 1030 is £65... a rx570 is £109 (4g) so in my eye, £44 extra.... over the £300 1200/1030 package + any extras u wanting to adjust.

but defo clearly a self build is better.

Its easy as long as you take your time and read the manual.
I forgot to put my io shield on before I screwed in the motherboard and I had trouble taking it out again due to the screws being stuck in the standoffs.
Only other problems are coolers not screwing in as easy as you expected and knowing where to plug everything rockpapershotgun.com/201…or/
Its only really like putting together flat pack furniture. If you can do that (I can't always ) then you can put together a pc.
great advice, sometimes more daunghting issue is with some cases, its like MFI has come back and into pc cases lol.. predrilled holes must of been installed by the 3 eye'd monster, so just have a read of the reviews of the cases out there from customer reviews.

Trouble is sarden, I have got a good deal on paper from AWD and CCL can't get within £60 of it ( thats without the "free" Win 10 that AWD supply) and also with CCL I just can't get the exact spec (eg case and GPU) in a customised bundle that I can get with AWD. So there lies my problem, do I pay more for a less spec'ed system with a good company ( CCL) or take a risk with AWD whose reviews are a bit iffy? I think I can hold my own when dealing with a company if problems that might arise or I might just be talking myself into AWD! lol

mate, we have spoken over messanger regarding "this deal"..... and, if i was u.......... id snap it up. have u tried that other thing i mentioned lol?.... if u managed that...... i would of bought it by now lol...

but yeah on agreement with the price of CCL on their higher up tiers... (there vega's are good value) just anything higher is like £100 above the base part price and that doesnt include that windows.

the only ofset from the "the deal" is if u wanna do a self build then u got more choice on stuff. but as for value goes for that "deal" then u aint gonna loose anything compared to a self build for that one which is very rare.

No mate, I haven't been back in touch with them yet, I am just gonna wait to see if anything pops up tomorrow in any Sale on Jan 1st and I'm still considering what you said, if nothing else pops up I will buy that system I think.. By the way, when you did that parts price list for me, there is also a AMD Ryzen Prism RGB Cooler included which I don't think we allowed for, in the system which adds about another £25 to the value, so an even better deal on paper I think! I do dither about alot on these things till I make up my mind! lol ... I so enjoy all this research though, with anything I buy to hopefully get the right thing at the right price.. a lot like yourself I suspect!

Re self build that you mention, I have thought time and time about doing it, I'm quite capable ( I even got the Haynes book from the library! Its on my desk right now.. lol) but then I think that I'm gonna lose the 3 year warranty ( I know all the individual parts are under warranty anyway but more hassle) and as you have so often pointed out the cost is nearly the same as pre-built. I appreciate that I could then choose every single component and get my "perfect" system but I think that I can live with the choice of case that I might have to have for the sake of convenience..

Sorry in advance:

Remember what i told u i use to do, "buy the prebuilt from using an old ebay code"... which worked out then cheaper then parts"... then give them a call and ive done that time after time, "sadly no longer due to the way ccl now works on ebay with the coupon, and upshift of parts."

mean while with yours:
have a look at all the parts...break it down on a spread sheet with prices................ see what would u do if u were building compare each item part to what u would, if any changes take a note of their website price between each one, .. as i mention about doing on the 5700 (uve already done it on that other thing)... do it on the others..

Interesting post. OK, well I am for the first time ever considering a pre-built PC after having so much trouble putting a Ryzen based one together a year ago for my son. That was mainly because I wanted to put Win7 on it which was technically possible, but in reality I had to give up as the numerous workarounds just didn't work for me. So we had no option but to go down the Win10 route.

But after reading your post, I am again interested in building my own but am utterly befuddled by everything nowadays. Can you, or anybody else, give me any advice;

I only want to do some minimal gaming - mainly only simulation games like Cities Skylines, Cities XL, Planet Coaster and similar. I must stress this point - I do NOT want a super-duper gaming machine!! I really do not want mega FPS - I just want to be able to play the sort of games mentioned at a reasonable level of quality and speed.

I would also like to be able to do some photoshop work (again, quite basic and nothing approaching professional level) and also video editing. Again, nothing at professional level but just at a reasonable pace so I am not wasting my life looking at a progress bar moving at a snail's pace!

For comparison purposes, I have been using my current PC for around 7 years or so and is a AMD A8-3870 APU with 8GB RAM and no dedicated GPU. OK, you can stop laughing now. I do have a GPU I've never opened which is a Asus -VGA Radeon R7250 1 GB Radeon R7 250 1GB GDDR5 128 Bit Graphics Card. Would this be of any use?


Would I be better off going for a Ryzen with a built in GPU, or a basic Ryzen and buying an additional GPU (or using the R7 one above)? What would be a decent Ryzen with built in graphics for the sort of things I want to do, and what would be a decent non-GPU Ryzen and additional separate dedicated GPU for the same type of use? Both of which won't break the bank!!


And 16GB or 32GB RAM? What mobo for allowing a little future proofing? Anything else?


I have a decent PSU so can use that. I also have a SSD and couple of HDDs so no need to buy new. I'm guessing for this reason I'd be better off going down the DIY build route as I can either save money, or spend the extra getting better components. I'd ideally likie to spend less than £400, and less than £300 if possible.

Any advice greatly appreciated!!

Go on PC Partpicker and you will have a ball using their system-builder tool Example 'super budget' build well under your £300 budget leaving cash for a new PSU and/or case if required. All parts from CCL:

AS Rock B450M Pro-F Micro £62
Ryzen 3200G £80
Corsair 2x8GB 3000 £70 (slightly cheaper elsewhere)

You seem to know what you're doing so I haven't recommended a case - there are so many! - but what is you "decent" PSU please? I don't build a lot of PCs now but over many years the most likely things to go wrong were poor PSU or mainboard; also power buttons on cases but easily fixed.)

In terms of performance the 3200G is roughly twice as powerful as your A8-3870... roughly. How this would translate into FPS gain in your games I'm sorry I don't know because it's not as simple as that. I found thi...


...but as comments point out it will be different depending on settings, size of city, mods, assets. (I don't know the game.)

However, as a gamer I have to also suggest the route of a discrete GPU. Best value for budget gaming IMHO is still the 4-core i3-9100F but as you enjoy some productivity work then perhaps instead of the 4-core 3200G the Ryzen 1600 or 2600, both are 6-core 12 -thread. The newer batches of the 1600 ("AF" label in product code - google it if interested) appear to be 2600s that didn't pass QC so there's a good value chip to aim for. As for GPU, it depends if you will need a new PSU or not but regardless we are going over your £300 level into your <£400 level tier with a 4GB RX570 (£110+)

I don't build a lot of PCs now but over many years the most likely things to go wrong were poor PSU or mainboard; also power buttons on cases but easily fixed.)In terms of performance the 3200G is roughly twice as powerful as your A8-3870... roughly.

see my 1600 posts or the newer 2600 post on parts, corsair 16gb (2x8gb) is £55-62 its fluts from ccl, get the DS3H as its a better board for afew quid more, and if ur self building with adding a gpu, go for the 1200.....1600.......2600.. depending on budget, if not stick with the vega 8 cpus 3200g
No PC should make HUKD unless the built price is Less than component price. If its more then why is it hot at all? Liquid nitrogen cold from me

because there is people out there who want prebuilt machines, and the intial vega 8 PC i first posted offered a fair budget machine and not much charge for the building, where as there is typical firms out there who charge £100 extra on top of the price for the same thing, hence why ive posted fair price deals to give folks an alternatived idea and choice, ........ most also come with 3 year warranty which is worth £30 all day long, yes parts typical come with 3 years but chance are most self builds soucing the cheapest part actuly by from many places, meanwhile if u look at a typical prebuilt machine of 500/600 they have £400/500 parts hence why ive not posted them as they are not a deal and thats why ive done loads of CPU deals with advice on, giving a fair selection to a fair different types of PC budgets at all folks from all levels a choice. its upto them what they purchase.

quite afew people on my build advice CPU ones have inbox me asking about cheap Ryzen prebuilt, hence this post:

hotukdeals.com/dea…867
&
hotukdeals.com/dea…688

then folks where asking about adding a GPU: such an RX570

hotukdeals.com/dea…955

and then ive posted this one which has a slight higher GPU with an alternative CPU which is a little behind the speed of a 3200G but does come with better L3 cache.

all for folks looking at prebuilts.

............. can u self build better with prices..... total agree hence my initial "self build CPU's". but there a good selection of the prebuilts around where other firms charge excess amout.

and a 3200g rx570 vs 2600 rx570.. u aint loosing alot in all fairness.

and as for the "self build better" 2600 line, your talking a 600 prebuilt as they are inflated prebuilts as they are "HOT" in demand CPU combos = not posted. *use to be when CCL didnt join the reg ebay voucher thing when there were a site wide deal on it went hot.

I've seen many many PC deals on HUKD that cost less than the parts hence they are rightly hot and on HUKD. If its just 50 or 100 for build rather than 100 or 200 then that is just a good buy and fair enough to get a few degrees of heat but in my opinion the precedent has been set on HUKD many times already for fully built for less than parts. So this deal is false temperature for me

Your reffering to alot of CCL deal on ebay, (which ive covered)

at the time:

RX580 £180
2600x £120
B450 DS3H £65
8gb ddr4 ram £30
psu were a OEM 500w Areas £29.99
240gb Hard drive, £24

(they were repeated over and over as they had a customize in them, which basically means each item change ref to another item on ebay, so as long as they were the same case, it were the same edited item..)

typical parts: £449.00
ccl had these on ebay for £519.............

then comes along a code for 10% 15% max of £50 or £60 or £75.

15% codes taking £441......... which made it cheaper to purchase these then actuly self building, they still had a hard time cos of the PSU, and i were one which stated, ring them to swap the psu over,

them days are gone because CCL have joined the reg voucher thing,....... which means that bundle on ebay is now £595...... which means when they have an offer its now down to the old base price.

sadly since this time. the GPU prices have decreased.

I'm not building, my post was answering @Phila4. I said the RAM can be had cheaper elsewhere and my suggestions were the 3200G or 1600/2600 with a GPU, but happy you agree with me
