I was looking for a compact yet powerful PC for myself lately
If you are interested in a pre-built desktop rather than building one yourself, then you might find this one interesting.

Specs:

- Case: Thermaltake Core V21
- Power Supply: EVGA 500W (I assume it is 80+ white)
- CPU: Intel Core I5 7500 Quad Core 3.8Ghz
- GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 6GB
- Motherboard: H110M Motherboard
- Cooler: Standard Intel Cooler (Upgrade Available)
- RAM: 8 GB 2400 mHz DDR4 Dual Channel Kit (Options Available to Upgrade)
- Hard Drive: By default 1TB Baracuda 7200 rpm (can be swapped for 120 GB 'Branded' SSD for £7.99 - not sure what they mean by branded or what are the writing / reading speeds )
- DVDRW: Not Included - A USB drive would be required.
- Sound: 5.1 HD Audio
- Network: Gigabit Lan


According to the chart I've seen in some other post, CPU will not be bottlenecking the GPU at all:

Overall, this PC should be able to provide a very comfortable 1080p gaming on Max.

I've never bought from these guys but reviews seems to be very decent. 4* on Trustpilot (over 91% of reviews say they are "Great")

Finance is also available for 12 or 24 month (10% deposit, 14.9% APR)

Imo good value for money, even despite now gradually normalising GPU prices.

I am glad if this helps anyone in their search for their ideal desktop.

That's one fancy high spec Microwave!
One thing to note is that people often overlooked with this sort of computer is that the default build does not include a wireless network adaotor, so you'll need to add one on or order one to install yourself unless you plan on connecting this to your network via ethernet.

The case isn't actually that small, it's MATX not mITX and has plenty of room and ventilation, including a 200mm fan hidden behind the front grille. I wouldn't be concerned with thermals in this case for a 1080p workload and non-overclockable CPU.

Not sure about 1080p max 60FPS but not bad value overall.

Still 2 in stock, checked just now
I keep trying adding it and it comes back with your cart is empty
Good price, would cost ~£400 for i5 & 6GB 1060 alone.
Decent price, I've bought a couple of things from these before without any issues at all.

Crazy to think that the GPU alone is worth more than half that were you to build it yourself. Pretty tidy build for the money.

Bit less than that, GPU is 298, I have a pc parts list I was gonna order from to make a similar rig but tempted by this now.

Thanks was more when it comes to upgrading with more drives or ram etc, thanks for the help though

The case accommodates up to six hard drives (3x 2.5" and 3x 3.5") according to thermaltake's website and RAM options are dictated by the motherboard, not the case

Tempted between this or this build https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/FvGzMZ


Pretty similar. The 8400 is going to be the better CPU in the long run, and you're paying a premium for a Coffee Lake compatible motherboard (probably ~£50). If I were building now I'd probably get a single stick of 8gb (2400 or 2666) and then get another somewhere down the line, and I'd fork out the extra £40 or so to put in a 120gb SSD.
Bought this for. My son 2 Xmases ago, was £599 for a short while, processor was the 6500 but still a very decent machine

Yeah I've gone with the custom build after hearing good things about the 8400 thanks.

Wise choice. I wouldn't buy a quad core i5 or CL i3 now personally. They're starting to show their cracks in the most demanding titles with CPU usage pegged at nearly 100%, especially the locked and lower clocked ones. Still probably fine for like 1080p 60hz and medium/high rigs, but anything more enthusiast warrants a better CPU especially for longevity. The list of games which definitively benefit from more than 4cores/threads grows all the time, and is undoubtedly the immediate trajectory for new games now.

The 8400 is a fantastic buy currently. If you've no interest in tweaking and overclocking, then the cheapest Z370 board and an 8400 is probably the best recommendation.
this case is perfect for any of the IKEA Cube Shelving furnature such as KALLAX

I built a PC in this case for my Oculus Setup but wanted it to fit in my Unit in the livingroom.

Just an FYI

Looks very neat, and that case fit like a glove
Thanks for sharing!
