Use the drop down to select the i5-7600k. Decent bang for your buck!

The GPU is a full size GTX 1060 6GB from Zotac that retails alone on Amazon for over £297.

If you're desperate for a build now a decent PC given the inflated prices of parts at the moment
bargain
Good deal
Additional (default) specs:

8gb (2x4gb) 2133mhz ddr4 ram
Standard intel CPU cooler
1tb barracuda HDD
no Operating system
no WiFi adapter

Haven't voted hot/cold. I'm going to wait for the new line of GPUs that will be dedicated for Bitcoin mining to be released, in the hope the 1060 goes back to a more reasonable price.
Doesn't come with Windows. Are the cheaper ones you can find on Amazon ok to use?
Anybody know what the price components would cost. Have a 1060 already and don't need the hard drive. I could sell the 1060 6gb i already have to reduce the overall cost.

an OS is not expensive or can be free if a student, a wifi adapter is dirt cheap Amazon has a sale on but a good one can be a tenner or less
I run a high end rig but would buy this for one my family no problem,seems like an ok deal if you want to avoid a self build

​Short answer: they're OK at best.

Long Answer:
There are so many sites out there selling "gaming" PCs with cheap parts and lots of RAM. If you want a good deal on a pre-built machine I recommend eBuyer, looking at reviews of ones meet your needs/budget and cross reference prices with rivals like Amazon/Argos/Comet. I recommend them because personally I've never had a problem with them in my 10 years of light usage of them (maybe 1 order a year).

To really save money you can look on PC part picker as zakkyb stated. I recommend copying someone who's completed their build, as you KNOW all the components are compatible (I've heard that sometimes the compatibility checker can be wrong sometimes on this site, so just be wary/double check).

Good luck and post any good deals you find

​True. However, for this price range £600 - £700, I would like OS and ssd drive included.

Personally the K is worth the extra 50 quid. Can overclock it to at least 4.2ghz
I was looking for a pre-built system with decent spec. So I've bitten the bullet on this one. Thanks OP.

Last week via Amazon Warehouse i picked up an i7 4970,8GB ram,1TBHD pre-installed Win 8.1 Pro Sedatech desktop for a grand total of £247! Add a GPU and away you go. But you need to be lucky to find deals like that.

You're not likely to be disappointed. This spec for this price is extremely effective for mid to high end gaming. you'll likely be able to play everything on this machine for the next 2 years, or until DX12 fully takes off and gets incorporated into most AAA games.
I got bored and I only managed to get close having a Ryzen 5 1600 to this price wise. That's going with the assumption that this isn't using a bargain basement board (as a Z170/Z270 would be needed to get an overclock. Obviously not a like for like, but given the Ryzen (plus its Mobos) are cheaper does put it into perspective.

List I made

EDIT: And while I realise this is 12 threads vs the 7600k's 4 - for the majority of people this makes little difference, could save £40 going with the 1400 but I feel likewise with 7400/7600k debate I feel the extra money is probably worth it in the long run if you can afford it.

At a quick browse this looks like a decent deal for a pre-built PC but I have some concerns. The 4.2GHz "overclock" in the title is actually the max turbo frequency of the 7600K so not really an overclock, and you won't be able to overclock on this motherboard either due to the H110 chipset of the motherboard. Although it may be possible to overclock through the BCLK.

Most importantly:
H110 Chipset - "Lacks support for RST, Smart Response Technology, Smart Sound Technology, Small Business Advantage 4.0, RAID, overclocking, and multi-GPU configurations. It also loses more than half the USB 3.0 support of the Z170 chipset. The number of HSIO lanes available falls sharply, and their use is limited. Memory support is reduced as well, as only a single DIMM is permitted in each channel. Finally, the H110 is also the only chipset to lack PCI-E 3.0 support; instead it uses eight lanes of the older PCI-E 2.0 standard."

PSU - Only stated as being 500W and nothing else, in my experience the PSU's in these pre-built units are usually kack and have higher rates of failures. E.g. The Corsair CX500 Builder series 500W PSU

The least important:
RAM frequency is only 2133MHz - though this won't make a noticeable difference vs higher frequency RAM

If you did want to buy this, I wouldn't advise picking the 7600K unless you plan to replace the motherboard. Stick with the i5-7400.

Ahh didn't see it was only a H110 mobo. Significantly hurts this deal - still, a decent price nevertheless if you'd rather the all in one warranty and don't want to build.

Very true. Not sure how I'd feel about having to run that 1060 6GB at PCI-e 2.0 speeds though.

I'm sure it wouldn't impact at all. But, it does hinder you having such a modern chipset without any modern features... I'd probably factor in a motherboard upgrade myself and that kinda takes away from this build. As i'd be better off going the Ryzen route then - however for those that want something that "just works" you could do a lot worse than this by far.
I wonder if this board will have problems with the Creators Update for Windows 10?

Was recently browsing tenforums.com and came across a thread mentioning problems with drivers for the GA-H81M-D2V Link
£72 to upgrade to z270k mobo
Is there any benefit to upgrading the mobo other than due to the lack of pci 3 and other than because of the potential windows 10 creator update issue?
