Posted 24th Jan

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

So yesterday morning i posted a nice 5600xt with a 3600 cpu which included windows for a very nice price of £800... which is this link provided which had a break down of £35.00 over the part price. which included windows it were a smashing deal; it beat the CCL Deal.

i have just gone and found a nice 3600x / 5700xt on another link which ive just posted.
(details at the bottom)

however they have gone and updated this one:

With this one, I cant give direct links to my chosen selection.

So i am going to choose and change what i can in the drop downs to show a good nice deal.

nip on the website and change it to the following to see what ive done:

CASE:
The Phanteks Eclipse P400A DRGB Case £83
- Choice of white or black.

CPU
Ryzen 5 3600x £188
- For a penny extra who wouldn't? (dropped over night)

GPU
AMD RX 5700XT £319** (it wasnt there yest) **part price today on here
- Its the 50th Anniversary card

COOLER
Normal Stock, optional extra.

RAM
Corsair 3600mhz 16gb (2x8) £77
- For a £12 more over 3200mhz at 16gb... why not.

STORAGE
Seagate 1tb Hard Drive £33
Corsair SP510 M.2 240GB SSD £43

Operating system
- None, download from microsoft website + £5 lic code from ebay.

300n Typical Wifi card £11

NON changeable
Motherboard: Gigabyte B450M-DS3H £65
Coolermaster 550W 80+ Rated PSU £50

Total Parts £869....... There price £855.....

if you want information the 5600xt its here:

hotukdeals.com/dea…477

I have expired it, its under this link.. that was yesterdays deal, this is now todays deal..
(u cant have more then one thing pointing at the same link, and this has new things on it.)

so uve got a nice £855 package which includes windows,

however i have just posted a nice 3600x / 5700xt (another type poss..)

hotukdeals.com/dea…d=7

This one is £20 cheaper, ^

pros (this post)
Windows included.
240GB NVME inc (cant be removed)

Pros (other link)
Much better PSU.
Better Motherboard to a degree.
£20 saving towards a NvMe which i removed would be +23 higher then the above.

#im not going to get in to case wars here.

end of the day, im not buyer, you are, youve got some nice selections, given u some good choices, off you go and u pick. and its not hard to do windows yourself the reason i remove the nvme out the other were cos the lower one cost £24 time u updated to 240gb nvme it was another £27.. which is £52 and for £60 u can get a nice 500gb.. so id go for that if it were me of the little freedom and psu.. .. for someone who wants windows installed this is a fine dandy deal..

AMD OFFERS: purchase a

3600x Get a choice of Borderlands* or Outwords FOC. &

Heat for the effort and I am sure this will be of great use to someone in the market for a gaming PC.
This is a great spec for the price heat added.
If my CPU is hitting 100% in games (and the game stutters) and my GPU is pretty much 100% will I have to replace both to get stutter free gaming (other than reduce quality).

At any point in time your CPU or GPU will be the bottleneck (otherwise all games would run at infinite FPS). What is your current GPU and CPU, and what games are you trying to play?

I3 6100 and rx470. Was considering going for a gtx1660super (sub £200) but if the i3 is still going to be pegged at 100% I’m not convinced the GPU will help much. I have been considering going AMD (2600x) as I loathe having to buy new motherboard just for a CPU upgrade so AM4 will probably offer better longevity. But that means new CPU, new GPU, new MOBO etc so it’s getting pricey.
The prices of these has been slowly creeping up. I specced a build just before Christmas (without sale prices). All components are around 10% more expensive. More significant increases are in the SSD and RAM. CPU prices have fallen.

I have a PC with a 6600k and it's still fine paired with a 2060, for that reason I would just recommend a CPU upgrade. The 6600k (£100 in CEX) is a quad core and runs at 3.5GHz, if the MB supports overclocking you can easily push it to atleast 4.5GHz (mine is at 4.7GHz).

Hmm, I see you dilemma. I'd consider buying a used i7 6700 (£150) or 6700k (£185) and dropping that in, that would give you enough headroom to upgrade to about 1080Ti, 5700XT, 2080, 2070 Super level with little CPU bottlenecking at 1440p (though these cards are overkill even for 1080p @144Hz). Cex have a 48 hour no quibbles return policy (full refund), so you could try with little risk if you can move fast (get the thermal paste first). Then again, £150-£185 is a significant step towards a new AMD setup as you say...

We had similar thoughts! Indeed, a 6600K overclocked would be cheaper and similar performing compared to a 6700, and in some cases perhaps even beat the 6700.

Yeah I have wanted to upgrade to a 6700k but at £185 it just isn't worth it IMO, I may as well wait and build a new system when I need too.

The other poster would get a £36 CEX voucher for the 6100, so £64 trade up to the used 6600K is well worth it.

It's amazing how well these old Intel chips still do in modern games:

@Scottc123 and Gormand (can’t tag you for some reason), thanks for the advice. Mobo doesn’t allow oberclocking so may look at the non K chips. Glad I didn’t rush out and spend on a GPU in the first instance as may as been disappointment. I only game at 1080/60 and with Jedi Fallen Order I’m still CPU usage of 100% with frame drops. Nothing else using the CPU in task manager so I think it is just a limitation of the chip. I’ll check out CEX today thanks.

Yup, I'm still on a 4790K @4.9 GHz running a 1080Ti, been getting the upgrade twitch, but single core performance of my CPU still beats the new AMD chips. I get occasional stutters in CPU heavy games (due to lack of threads), but an upgrade to faster memory 2400 MHz @CL10 and that has smoothened things up. I'm stuck on DDR3, but for someone on Skylake6XXX architecture can also upgrade DDR4 speed (if motherboard supported). The DDR4 could also be rolled forward to any future AMD AM4 upgrade. Indeed, a 6700K will beat even a 3700X in some games: forums.anandtech.com/threads/6700k-vs-3700x-in-23games.2567554/

Cool. Consider that the K versions, even if not overclocked often have ~200 MHz higher boost clocks than non-K variants (and higher resale value). For most games, single thread speed is most important, but newer games are increasingly dependent on number of threads (Assassin's Creed games being particularly thread-hungry). Check benchmarks for the games you play. Enjoy and good luck with the upgrade.

Yeah most issues you have will be due to only having two cores, a four core CPU will provide a massive boost in FPS. In the case of the 6600 vs 6600k they both have a 3.6GHz boost so either will be fine if you are not overclocking.

Tempted. Been a while since i had a gaming PC, think i need to do some more reading before taking the plunge. Some PC only exclusives have been catching my eye so really close to going for it!

I ended up getting the 6600k along with a 1660 super. Replaced an i3-6100 with RX470. On jedi Fallen epic im not at cpu stuck at 100% anymore, more like 90 - 95% with GPU hovering around 80% (1080p) locking at 60fps seems to help the CPU load somewhat though. Im not sure whether I have upgraded far enough to have been worthwhile yet but need more testing in other stuff.

If the stuttering is gone then that's a win. You'll still be CPU bound if you have the graphics settings lower than they could be, or if you are running at high refresh rates. If you have a high refresh monitor you could cap at something higher than 60fps to keep frame rates more consistent.

Yeah it’s definitely a win. It’s one of those situations of whether the win was worth it for the price or it I should have stretched a little further, although the i7 was double the price. I only have a 60fps monitor anyway. Still get stutters on Jedi fallen but looking around the net so do people with high end systems so seems software issue - I can at least play in epic though which I couldn’t do so far. I went to test COD but it needed a 40gb patch which is still downloading. Grid 2 which I play now and then looks great in ultra which I could run before. All in all I’m pretty happy with it. It would have cost me £225 by the time I get ride of the rx470 and the i3

Not bad, considering that you've doubled both CPU and GPU performance for £225!
TY OP, got this instead of one of the ccl's u posted as i ordered that early last month and when i called yesterday said it would arrive 14th feb.

This deal arrives in 5 days and is better and cheaper than the one from ccl went with 3600x 5700xt combo - (hope i dont have thermal issues tho (fierce))
