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

After shopping around settled on this from box, quite a lot of options but it's what my kids after for streaming and gaming, think it's a good blend for the price

Partpicker came in almost the same price so easy to let someone else build it and get a 3yr warranty

Maybe useful for some also available upto 24months interest free via PayPal credit

not sure what happened, edited now, thanks
I would switch to the 3600 for free, better for gaming and also drop the ram to 8gb save £50 and just pick a single stick up for £35-40,

The MB itself has been knowing to have issues, The biggest one being the m.2 slot with bad vrm, your going to end up with alot of throttling
Before the pandemic hit you could have a 2080 super machine for not much more than this, I know nobody has a time machine etc but if you are able to wait I definitely would as prices will fall again after this is over and all the parts on this seem to be mid range, however, this is just my opinion

You can see how much prices have jumped between the link above and the image attached (over £200)

Wow! Kinda wished I hadn't seen this!
Don't think I'll cancel it though, may be a longer wait for the market to return to those numbers and I'm sick of kicking the kids off the PC so I can get on

Yep I would of went for the 3600 but kids adamant on the 2700 for streaming and editing video, you are right on the RAM but for the sake of £10 I'd rather it was stress tested on the build than sticking it in myself.
I'm out of touch on the MB, in my old knowledge I would thought even a base/mid range gigabyte board would be a solid choice. Hope we don't need that 3yr warranty at all!

Don't get me wrong this deal is not a rip off, it's just overpriced by about the same amount as the example I gave, and I don't think we will see normal pricing on PC components until late July/August time, this system is capable of 60fps+ 1440p gaming on ultra so not a bad system by any means

any recommendation for a self build for motherboard
I want to build my first system, have been mainly a laptop user and played some game. My requirements

I want to build my first system, have been mainly a laptop user and played some game. My requirements

System will act as a NAS with atleast 8 - 12 HDD supported by the case

Act as Home media server to be able to atleast stream 4 simultaneous media stream (planning to use Plex)

Record Indoor/Outdoor camera streams to NAS or to other drive if that is recommended way - support atleast 6 camera's writing to it directly or via blueiris

Be able to support 3-5 VM's for my labs - these may not be always on but want the capability to be able to run them

This will be always on machine to prefer on low power consumption
Want to be able to play latest games

Are stock AMD CPU fans as awful as they were 5 years ago?

Not anymore. The Ryzen 5 range coolers are just about suitable for the CPU they come with - however you're always better off with a better CPU cooler, particularly if you are running any high load applications.

I play games so went for a noctua black edition. I tried an Artic Freezer (twice) before that and found it cooled OK but was really loud at certain fan frequencies.

Just be careful with pre-built PCs and the warranty - they'll likely fob you off if you've replaced or added any components, or even if you just opened the case.
Under the link there is different machine:

  • AMD Ryzen 5 3600 3.6GHz Six Core Processor
  • 16GB Corsair LPX DDR4 3000MHz RAM
  • 250GB M.2 NVMe SSD & 1TB HDD
  • GeForce RTX 2060 Super Graphics
  • Windows 10 Home
  • Featuring Gigabyte & Aerocool
  • 3-year collect & return Warranty
  • CU-Ga240SSD
