In the market for a new system and this seems to be a very good price for 3.5GHz dual-core, 8GB RAM and a Strix GTX1050TI. Should be saving at least £50 over buying the components individually, and saves me breaking the CPU if I tried building myself!

You could buy these components for about £320 on Ebay, for those on a budget, it makes more sense to build it yourself. If you're not a budget, why are you buying a budget PC?

Only a dual core in a gaming pc, good luck running any modern games on this thing.

The G4560 is actually a very competent CPU for the price when it comes to gaming. It has hyperthreading and gives i3s a run for their money, just take a look at benchmarks and you'll find it's pretty capable.

agreed uk.pcpartpicker.com/gui…ild
plus watch You tube benchmarks, this is a good entry level buy and will play most if not all titles. Great buy in my opinion for no hassle gaming, would like to see people criticizing link a better buy than this for the price.

The Intel G4560 is one of the first Pentium processors to feature Hyper-threading. This means that although the G4560 only has two physical processing cores, it is able to process four threads in parallel by sharing resources between the physical cores. This typically results in a 50% performance improvement over two physical cores alone. Comparing performance between the lowest spec Kaby Lake i3 7100 and the Pentium G4560 shows that in terms of both performance and specs, very little separates them (even virtualization technology VT-d is present on the Pentium).

Just had a quick look, can't see anything that comes in that cheap?

5000 passmark.

Same as my 4 core 8 thread xeon which is bottlenecked by a rx470. This processor is great. Equivalent to an older i5.

excellent cpu for gaming, it's so popular for budget builds that they actually increase the price off the cpu was damaging i3 sales.

Yes decent price, I bought a gaming PC from this company a few years ago and it was built well, I've upgraded the graphics card and PSU and it's still going strong.

The processor can run a 1060 gpu.

Intel have been using Hype Threading for around 17 years though.

I don't think you could build this computer for less.

I mean it's bare bones right? Super minimum requirements but it should run quite a few new titles without shadows and post processing and obviously on Low-Medium with varied Framerates.

Don't get me wrong, building your own is still the way to go for performance and price but entry level gamers would get on fine with this computer. The 1050Ti is actually quite a decent card.

Really? I don't see how.

Processor is around £70, Kaby Lake Capable Motherboard £55+, RAM £60, HDD £35ish, Cheapo PSU £45.

The BitFenix Nova with plexiglass is £30ish.

The Asus 1050Ti STRIX is £175.

I don't see any way to make that add up to £320. It seems like a good deal for a PC with those components, ready built with warranty. And whilst the processor won't set any new records, its very capable for 1080p gaming with Ultra, or perhaps slightly lowered, settings.

Funny how I don't see any of those items in your posting history. Guess you chose to keep those deals to yourself.

One of these is not like the others

i did a very similar build but with an i5 -7500 and an ssd for 520

Looks like a good deal to me. I'm also in the market for a new system. Had been considering this instead. I know it has a re conditioned cpu and mobo but it comes with a warranty too. Not sure what to go for now.

yours has a 1060 graphics card for an extra £80. That's a stronger graphics card that will play everything at 1080p ultra

Your CPU passmark is around 6000 so 20% better than this, so not a massive difference, but the graphics card is

cpubenchmark.net/cpu…GHz

What a deal this is HOT

Excellent price with 3 year warranty and all the parts that i can hope for. Awesome. Thank you.

Great deal if you don’t feel confident building your own system

graphics card comparison of the 1050ti vs 1060

The 'build your own' brigade need to be silenced, honestly.
I bet none of them built their own home, despite it being much cheaper than buying a prebuilt one.

Even if you are confident building your own PC, still cant get it cheaper than this and with the 3 year warranty.

Yeah pretty much what I figured. Thanks for the links.

Not a bad deal but I built a sfx with an i5 instead and the ti and with a 500gb ssd for under 550 a few months back. Sfx cases and psus also tend to be more expensive.

Destard there, offering a solid contender for the annual Idiotic Point Of The Year award.

Can any of the 'build your own' give me some pointers for a very basic budget rig? Looking to get something for sub £300 for my 8 yr old to play minecraft on but with legs for some better games as he grows up. Used to build my own but not touched a motherboard for 8 yrs plus.

At £300 there is no point in building yourself, looks for a second hand built on ebay would give you much better spec.

with quick glance

ebay.co.uk/itm…ar=



At £400 buy it now or bid starting at £275 currently, this PC will let you play everything on max,great price imo with gtx 970, i5 4690k
ebay.co.uk/itm…vSD

I'm very tempted with this but have a few questions if anyone can answer

1) will this play PUBG even remotely well?
2) will this be good for things like video editing etc

I want to get into PC gaming, but only really for older titles on Steam and PUBG

Im running a G4560 along with 4gb RX480 and its run every game (titanfall 2, battlefield 1 etc) at ultra so far with high fps at 1080p can't recommend the chip highly enough for a budget rig.

Excellent budget gaming pc voted hot!

I take your point onboard but you haven't thought about:

Maybe you don't know how
Maybe you prefer all in one warranty and repair
Maybe you haven't got the time
£320 does that include original windows OS

I can build a PC in an hour and a half, then there's testing, if temps are high more fans or water cooling is needed prices then rocket. This build should sort all that if its not upto scratch then return, easy if its your own build you would have to start fault checking and that takes time.

I have built PCs for over 15 years but in all honesty unless I want something special or unique sometimes to save £80 if that and a lot of hassle its easier to buy something like this. Ask yourself what you use it for if this is what you need I. E kids having a few goes of Minecraft etc or a video editing, Photoshop, gaming power house etc.
