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

Hurrah! A gaming PC featuring the brand new AMD Ryzen 5 3600XT
The base specs look pretty good, although the upgrade options are 100% worth looking through. There's some decent configs for the cash here. If it was me, I'd look at an upgrade on the motherboard and possibly the case (see option #4 below), although for a lot of folks that just want to game, then the standard set up might be the way for you.. Obviously it all comes down to your needs and budget.

There's a lot out there to consider when buying and there's not really a 'One size fits all'.Have a play around with the configuration and see what might suit your budget best. I mean... you could add in an 8 core Ryzen 7 3700X for an extra £69.95 in place of the 3600XT if you wanted - Total with a 1TB HDD in there is £855.93 for that. Or maybe swap to the MSI X470 Pro Gaming Max as well as the above for a total of £905.88? Maybe up the SSD to a 480GB model on top of that if you really wanted. Total there would be £933.87.

If you don't fancy the 3600XT then there's the 3600 in there which knocks £49.95 off any of the prices mentioned here. See the very bottom of the description for some examples there.

I think you get the picture... There's a shed load to look at, so I won't go on any more. Some examples below that are a tad easier to read.



Examples below with various case options and the totals, as well as prices including a 1TB HDD, in case you wanted to add one in. You'll likely need it for all of those games anyway

CPU Base specs next to the 3600 (The one in this deal is the 3600XT)
May not be something everyone will want over the 3600, but it's just an option for those looking.

The 3600Xt looks better, i.e go into the cpu selection: -£50 for a 3600(150) but +69 for a3700x(269) so its really a £200 cpu then.

Cooler master higher up case in line,

1660Super is a nice deal here for the cost.

The 2060 is £100 more, but is only worth £89 more, so use £11 on the value of the aboves to give estimates, the 1650 super is nice to where the gpu is but may as well go 1660s tbh

and the 2070 super calcs at £300 above my guide above the £207 charge of the 1660s which puts it about near enough at £500 but is also a low qual one,

Summary: a build on price, GPU's are tick for tackle range, PSU is tick for tackle range, toma decent obvious, its on the money, but dont go for the -K board if u do consider the 3600 XT, TBH i wouldnt use it for a 3600 , and id stick to 3600 then XT! upto u.

The £620 PC here is the STAR BUY, as good as it is at £750+++ there is better in the £800 builds elsewhere,
this is a good for the 1660super package.


That £620 package: gets my HOTTEST DEAL for £620 YET!. defo not for 750+++ though, maybe £720+1tb under 3600/2060 low storage, time u get into the 800s say, the other 2 from weeks before are better, u got that b550/5700xt for £835 with 256gb nvme/1tb, or 2060/3600 for £820 with 3tb n 512gb from pali.. and a better b450 or +£35 for a b550..

so dont like the direct link, BUT ACTUALLY ONE OF THE BEST DEALS INSIDE OF IT EVER!.

Update on my review spec £620 package: Palicomp will price match that £620 deal or swap gpu for same cost for RX590, than 1650s so a gaming boost. google: Quote beater, first link,.. and they only charge £50 for folks who buy windows from the firms.

Looks Hot, nice find Op 😁
Nice. I bought this in April but it’s been updated and upgraded since, although price hasn’t really changed. Credit to AWD.

There are new options for 2070/water coolers.

Is the XT worth it over the X or even standard 3600?

Just get a 3600 and get the best water cooler would be my advice. Overclock the 3600 to 4.2 or 4.3Ghz (or more) on all cores.

Sarden84 - FYI "Dual" refers to dual fan card. It's in the title, the main body and the spec drop downs

raider case - £25 (its £58)
the Asus 2060 dual is only £89 more (its £123 more)

Just interested to see where you get these numbers from before you post?

suppose to be £52 for raider "other way", calc and a 2060 start from £289 for a decent best 2060....., if u wanna add the price in for an inflated 2060 which is poor performance what cost more then the likes of the best 289 one, add it on, but its pointless calc,

inflated product because they are "prebuilder lines". where as the Calc are more in line, to base from vs self build cost, "true value per performance build". is best way on certain compares,

also note the 3600xt is £239 web, but is £50 more inside this then a 3600 at £150, its also £69 cheaper then a 3700xt which is riding at £269 here, (3600 would be riding at 150 here, except the promo with Asus/MSI, is what is keeping this cpu up at CCL/AWD/SCAN/OVERCLOCKERS,, as they rather do cash back offers, then drop to the likes of Amazon prices)

Good build, except the direct link is poor cos of the direct link Board, change it.. id also suggest use this for the £600-700 builds, as for £750+++ there is them 2 other ones from last week much better, but this does fill the "hole at £600-£700, maybe a little more)

That £620 build Very Very nice, VDH Board by MSI very solid, 1660S.. say no more and all the else will do as a budget build.

with the raider case: buy 2 more fans for the top and add urself ---> its a must.
Edited by: "sarden84" 7th Jul
If the op lists the £620....... 3600 / 1660s with the VDH Board... in the title it would go "super higher". thats the best deal in this package, and TBH the best deal on here for the past 6 months for £620 imo.
Edited by: "sarden84" 7th Jul
@kuteguy

You just tagged me in an old pali post, ... check this one out. 3600 / 1660s / Get the VDH Board, 620..+whatever storage,

that pali one is £575 for 2600/RX580... same kinda system but also has 1tb. £35

this is 620 for that 3600/1660s u wanted, so 620 using my guide above ++++ 1tb = 655ish..

atm prob the best, recent little drops now. but u could pitch the others on a quote beater, as that old post needs updating again.
I still don't trust buying from these guys though... their trustpilot has me pretty worried, maybe it's ok to buy a prebuilt system from them but buying individual parts albeit cheaper through them I haven't taken the risk, no idea how they package or who they deliver with

What issues you having? I’ve tweaked a bit and it’s better now. The 3600x without tweaking was bouncing all over the place but was 85c +. The 1660 super always sits around 75/80 at 100%.

I put the 3600x at 4.2Ghz all cores and it gave me a better R20 score and temp dropped to ~75C when gaming (BFV).

Would be interested to know which higher end deals from last week are better value than this? I've been wanting a 3700x + 2070 super build, and even upgrading the motherboard, case and psu to the highest quality options here (not saying much for the psu), this seems to come in cheaper than anything else similar.
Adding on some quality storage options too I thought this came out to a really nice build:

Case: Coolermaster MB520 ARGB
Motherboard: MSI X470 Pro Gaming Max
CPU: Ryzen 7 3700x 8 core
GPU: Asus RTX 2070 Super Evo Dual
RAM: Adata Gammix 16GB 3600mhz
Cooler: Coolermaster H410M RGB
PSU: Coolermaster 700w MWe 80+ White
SSD: Adata sx8200 Pro 512GB NVME M.2 (3500/3000 read/write)
HDD: Toshiba P300 3TB

The 3600x without tweaking was bouncing all over the place but was 85c +. The 1660 super always sits around 75/80 at 100%.I put the 3600x at 4.2Ghz all cores and it gave me a better R20 score and temp dropped to ~75C when gaming (BFV).


The issues I have is with the gpu because the cpu is fine but when running games on the normal fan settings the gpu reaches high’s of 85+ degrees. When changing the fan settings and making it so that if it reaches 80 the fans go on maximum speed, I still manage to hit that 80 degrees consistently. It’s really dumb almost no airflow in the case. I have a Rx 570 8gb in there.

I purchased a case and motherboard from these guys a few weeks ago. The case arrived and motherboard didn’t, so I contacted them asking what happened to it and got no answer. Eventually I had to open a PayPal case and they refunded my motherboard the next day. Personally I wouldn’t buy from them again and would rather pay a bit more somewhere else that actually has some form of customer service.

yep exactly I wouldn't touch them

I’ve had much better service with scan, overclockers, ccl and box. Obviously customer service experiences vary with each customer and purchase but I’ve used all of the shops mentioned above multiple times with zero issues and the one time I order from AWD-IT, they mess up my order and don’t respond to messages. Not on a warpath or anything, just sharing my experiences, to hopefully save others some hassle.
I need a gaming PC for farming simulator 19 + future releases. Anyone know what I'd need to spend? TIA.

Hi pal, sorry "mad Day"

What i ref to the £750+... packages was mostly the 2060 aspect.

£750 click buy, + sort that motherboard out, VDH which is a nice board, £770 knock it down to the 3600 so that saves £50 so £720.... like i was saying good deal around that and if u go 1660s at £100 cracker,....

2060 mini isnt the best 2060.... but its not a bad price for it but time u add say good storage, 2tb or 3tb, £77 for 3tb,.. going back up £792.... and say if u want a 500gb ish nvme well another £40 here, 832..

where as AWD on the other link do a £760B450/£800B550+35ish 1tb to make a 256gb/1tb for a 5700xt/2060 / 3600 build, or palicomp do a £820B450/£855B550 and u get better "2060" 512gb nvme, 3tb / case wise same ish, 1 case at £50 / another at £30 then rgb kit on top, = the same aspect.

so this link: B450 VDH, 2060, up the ssd to 512gb, 3tb = 832 (and the cooler which is near say tbh)

AWD B550 post, B550-A asus, 256gb 1TB 5700xt = 835ish or 795 (2060 is poor in this build as ive said on it)

palicomp: B450 TUF 512gb 3tb 2060 = £820 or B550-A by asus. £855 - the B450 is better out all 3 here mentioned too, and the 2060 is a gigabyte dual.

so to quick recap incase ive lost u lol:

AWD: other link by this OP. £832 = 256gb nvme / 1TB / B550 / 5700xt deal... "lower storage, more GPU new B550"
AWD This deal: £832 512GB nvme / 3TB / med msi B450 / 2060 "medium aspect all over it"
PAlicomp £820 512GB nvme / 3tb / higher TUF B450 / Higher 2060, and u get a better psu Riotoro". - u can ask them knock the storage down too.

AWD here for the 1660 Super winner hands down vs rest of the market. someone wanted low storage perhaps a 2060, theres no GPU option to go next higher here so for a 800 3600 with good storage the others are better overall in case wise and in psu and boards,, and then AWD for the 5700xt but palicomp for the £820 for the complete 2060 is hands down better,

and i know u got the case option here but u got case options there,

//////////

2070 super did catch my eye, and thats a really nice find, but as u said its the PSU,

i feel this is more of a cracker package for the 1660 with taking on board looking at the parts thoughout tbh.

The Asus -K is really a poor board, the worst asus board going, and pairing this up with a 3600XT is 100% a joke, its as bad as scan doing a 1k build for a 2070super and then u click on its got an A320, maybe not that bad but its up there tbh.

u spending this much, u want something better as a base, and that is why i dismiss the 2070s as per the psu, and i didnt consider talking about it, but on price its a nice deal, everything else u said it said is bang on, X470 is good, its not a bad 2070s either. u can upgrade the case, maybe a phone call to sort that psu out for u?

so my advice on this, the direct link for £750 needs sorting, take on board what i said, and if u are the type wanting lots of storage then consider the other 2, and if ur the budget type folk and got £620 the £620 package i said above is the star buy thoughout all this.

£620 package i mentioned, is the best £620 package though the market.


so im not saying its a rubbish deal, im giving folks my info on whats good inside of it and what i would consider elsewhere if u do hit that £750++ aspect out. because the link starts from £750. and i feel its best for a £620-£730 deal.

pre virus:

once upon a time just before the virus, the 3600 did hit the £143 mark.

CPU: 3600 £143**
MB: VDH £62*
1660 SUPER £202*
CM 500W PSU £40
240GB SSD £22*
H410 Cooler £25
Raider case £49
3200mhz Adata Ram 70++ (hard to get, it was the 3000mhz which has been £29 per 8gb, except blk friday it went down to £24 per 8gb!) so lets use 3000mhz at 24quid, so 48quid for 16gb..


so £591........ this was self build at extreme deal though out periods, = zero chance of it ever being in a prebuild, infact at £620 for a super no chance at all using these parts ... ..


i was doing the stryker package by CCL which was great for RX580 and the 1660s in them was a joke, i remember very well becuase, i knew that we could get £580 package for rx580 with storage, so £70 more for that gpu increase should of been the 1660s @ 220 normal price then, but no was a joke, though xmas, but it did hit the £650 late jan/feb then vanished. and it came back 2 months ago with palicomp..

so infact for a prebuilt £620 1660s prebult the lowest ever.

*one time deals here there, usual afew quid more, but the 3600 was avg at £150 as per it is now though at amazon where other sellers are taking the micky because them sellers are currently doing motherboard cashback deals on the b550 lines (this is how cash back swallow up some works..... do people think AMD/mb give cashback free, or games.. nope its all hidden)

so pretty much, the lowest prebuilt 1660s/3600 deal ever when u look at whats inside it, , but i do expect more to come though.

we did once hit late jan/feb £650 stryker with 1tb, so pretty much this, but was a slight lower board DS3H, and 3000mhz adata, yup it is the lowest combo.

Cheers Sarden, appreciate your input on that as you seem like the king of pc deals around here. I might well try to chat to them about the PSU then. Or alternatively at least there's a 3 year warranty on all the parts if it blows them all up, and I'll just let the girlfriend know that our energy bills are on the increase Or I could have some patience and wait until the end of the year for the new CPUs/GPUs..
Will report back if I do end up going for it and update on how the build is.

#1 standard with HDD


  • Case - CiT Raider RGB + 4 Fans £52
  • CPU - AMD Ryzen 3600XT £239
  • GPU - RTX 2060 Mini Dual OC - 6GB £279** using a better one whats down..
  • RAM - Adata Gammix - 16GB 3200MHz £58
  • SSD - Crucial BX500 240GB £27
  • Motherboard - Asus Prime B450M-K £66
  • Cooler - Cooler Master H410M RGB £25
  • PSU - Coolermaster 600W MWE 80 Plus White £49
  • No OS included

795 - there selling for £750 as per the below notes:

* as i said i wouldn't personal pick a 5700xt on -K board, go +VDH atleast.
** i wouldnt personal buy a 3600xt either, your choice.. not worth the tag, should really be a £200cpu , drop it to 3600

which then works out, 705 parts / £700 item.

using the vdh, works out 720 / 720 items.

if i was self building i wouldn't build this TBH

the gap between 795 parts / £750 build is to "market" an over price launch item......

They all do it, just AWD are so non tec to hide it and state the obvious, its in the drop downs as proof.

Yeah I wouldn't put them in the same league as any of those ever... I haven't really ordered a huge amount from CCL besides a keyboard and never from Box but I'm sure it's still better than AWD-IT. CCL have replied to an email enquiry I had regarding ram in less than 24 hours recently and Scan & Overclockers are first class companies... Can't recommend either of them enough, however overclockers usually are not #1 for value / discounts, their customer service is amazing though and same with Scan, scan also package stuff extremely well

No problem pal, i enjoy talking to folks, ive never been into doing them UT videos, - i talk to my self enough times..

have a good think, but as i said its £620 its nice, crack for the 1660s/3600

lets be honest, i know these firms quite well, quite alot of firms follow me. during lock down, one firm has shined more then them all.. via me pitching them who nailed all the big guys, and now AWD have jumped. its nice to have "more choices".

"more to come" = i expect CCL to erm pull their finger out, and sort out its "stryker deal".. ive not posted in ages, neither has any of the regs the erm, the ones which get paid commission forgot what u call them now,, it needs a work out, but i expect them to soon, markets getting better.. when is the question as usual. // thats one to watch out for soon..

but saying that, i have noticed "right now" just helping someone that 3600 has jumped a little on the "self build cost". 3600xt is here, means 3600x will go up a little and i guess 3600 might, this few days maybe a week at some places.. overall there coming down, launch item plays a little havik.

markets getting better, new things coming in some months time, so time to buy soon, dont wait to they come if u aint buying them ones and think old will drop they usual best price before hand, doesnt always pan to wait to long, end of the day its all a market strat.

Thanks mate for all the help. Will think about whether to buy this or hold out for CCL Stryker as you said. Would rather deal with CCL aftersales support than AWD from what Ive heard.
