Okay, so not everyone is going to want to build their own PC, whether it's down to time constraints or just not knowing where to start. Lenovo have the X510 at £599.99 using the above code.

CPU - i7 4770k @ 3.50GHz (Overclockable) - Really good for gaming but should smash through heavier tasks (Such as video rendering)

16GB RAM - Generally, for gaming 8GB is plenty, although this along with the 4th Gen i7 should back it up in heavier situations.

GTX 760 2GB - Not the latest and greatest graphics card around, but it should be able to give you some decent visuals at respectable frame rates on high settings in GTA V (online videos demonstrating this) You can always upgrade later down the line if you need to.

HDD 2TB with an 8GB SSD Cache - Should give you a speed boost over the straight HDD - Again you can upgrade later, maybe pop a 250gb+ SSD in to add as a main boot drive. Normally guaranteed to give your PC a nice kick up the bum, in terms of speed.

Blu Ray Drive / Blu-ray/DVD-RW - Some people don't really use their Optical Drives these days, but i think it's nice to have a Blu ray drive in there for movies and such.

I think it's good value, especially as a base to work from, the CPU Alone makes up for around £200 - £250 of the price (Going by previous prices on it sold alone)

So yeah, if you're wanting to get into PC gaming, this really isn't a bad choice.

Silly choice for gaming as you can get an i5 and a 970 for this price.
However its not a bad deal, if for some reason you needed an i7, i'd just say its a strange combination of parts

Not bad but slow ass ram for that processor

Not the quickest but I wouldn't call it slow ass

Good price I guess but I agree with i5 and better GPU would be better

Deal_HUNT3R

Ram speed makes little difference for gaming. 1600Mhz is fine for this CPU although the Ram timings are not listed.

Deal_HUNT3R

1600MHz RAM is more than enough i have 1333MHz RAM in mine and it runs flawless i don't get any slow downs or anything.

That isn't a good price for it considering its 2 generations old tech in it.

Poor imo. The average Joe will think great an i7 but its a below par GPU and a 2TB drive would be much better replaced with a mid size SSD.

Worth pointing out that unless this comes with Blu-Ray player software which has the Codec for videos you are going to need to buy software as I don't believe any free players support blu-ray video

Yeah, seriously build a pc. It may seem expensive but i guarantee it will last. My build - i7 4790k 16gb 1866mhz ddr3 ssd and hdd - amd radeon r9 390x 8gb gddr5 (sapphire oc) is amazing! Barring a bunch of typical compatibility issues (disadvantage over a console) and troubleshooting being an open ended book (again consoles - call company, they fix - no third parties to contact), its great!

These threads always end up with people saying the deal is crap and that there's better around, which is fine, but why cant people post links to THEIR offerings to help us out?

Would you be prepared to build?

You can get an i5 4690k for roughly £180
And a 970 is about £270
The rest of your budget can go on your mobo, hdd, psu, ram ect and you can budget them things and still get good performance

Amazon seem to do the best prices around for Most computer parts, plus I prefer their delivery since you know which days they're going to deliver

Quick google of i5 and gtx 970 brought this as well box.co.uk/Cub…wcB both linked were 679 Im sure if i spent more than 30 secs looking i would probably find a better deal but these are not far off.

£565.72 this is how much it is worth in parts + windows license make it decent deal

i7 and a 760? That's not a very balanced combo for gaming, a huge bottleneck there.

If you're not into gaming and want a workstation just buy a machine using the built in Intel iGPU.

It's still a good deal for the hardware alone, trying to match the specs for the cash was not possible:

Depends what you want, if you're gaming this system isn't good value at all. You're better of spending less on the CPU, RAM and Motherboard and more on a GPU.

If I was after a new gaming PC for this price I'd build this:

People here then usually throw up these arguments:

1) It's hard, I can't build my own PC!

You seriously can, it's so easy. And here in this thread I promise to help ANY HUKD member who asks about building a PC, I will even go so far as to help you via Skype if you need it. I'm completely serious - just PM me. Also you have the advantage of building the machine you need, not what someone else thinks is a good configuration and being able to upgrade down the line without sacrificing warranty.

2) What if I breaks down? What about my warranty?!

Most individual PC parts have a three year warranty, if a part fails you send it back and get another. This PC only has a one year warranty, if it has a problem you have to send the entire thing back, usually at your expense - if you've upgraded it during that time you may have lost your warranty.

3) Lenovo/Dell/Alienware/etc are a known brand! I can buy with confidence knowing it'll be a great machine.

Lenovo and Dell have both been caught shipping machines with rootkits/backdoors into their systems that aren't part of a standard Windows install. You cannot trust them.

4) If I want to game I'll just get a XBOX One or PS4 / PC Gaming is EXPENSIVE.

There are plenty of reasons why that's not a great idea/true.

It's a few months since i looked around. I was tempted by the yoyotech best buy offering at the time. That's with a 960 which is still slightly better balanced than this one for gaming. But put i5 970 into ebay search and you'll find some options from e.g. freshtechsolutions which are also better balanced for games. Good price for this one though if you want an i7 now and plan to upgrade gfx later (big shift in the market expected this year)

I would still go for an i5 and 970 for the same price - Link. You can get a windows 10 key from reddit for £25. But this is a good deal so I voted hot as it should last a long time.

Isnt erazer a medion brand?

That CPU is bottlenecked by that GTX 960 though, complete overkill.

amazing deal, if I hadn't recently bought a PC I'd get this. The GTX 760 can actually power an Oculus Rift fairly well too (not perfectly but OK)

it might not be balanced for the time being but with that 6600k 4.4ghz OC you'll have a good platform for future upgrades. Think about a GTX '1070' or '1170' put in one of those, the CPU will be a good match.

Not really. People aren't bottlenecking i5 2500k's now with 980Ti's. Plus with DX12 it won't really matter so much any more. If you're gaming just get a cheaper i5 and spend more on the CPU.

yes but you kind of answered my point. The 6600k in a few years will probably not bottleneck a top-end GPU (980ti in today's standard) as oppose to the cheaper i5. Let's look at it this way, would a i5 2300 bottleneck a 980ti? probably in some games...

a 2300 is barely slower than the 2500k. Sandy Bridge is only about 10% slower than Haswell clock for clock. Haswell to Skylake is about the same improvement again.

Intel are lazy because they can afford to be while AMD flap around trying to bankrupt themselves.

Besides very little gaming is CPU bound, so as long as you've got four cores you're golden for plenty of time to come.

Seems like a decent enough deal. Of course you can get more for your money if you pick out the parts yourself but not everyone is confident enough to do that.

Good shout. Agreed, much better than the deal here. My bro's rig has slightly more expensive parts and a larger PSU in case he wants to SLI in the future. Including a windows license he paid £900 assembled and delivered. I dont think its such a bad premium for your first computer to have all the cable management nicely done. He will feel more comfortable upgrading rather than building from scratch. I did the same a couple of years ago.

a beefy CPU is nice is you plan on doing a lot of emulation. I can run (most) wii games at 1440p full speed which is really nice. I appreciate most will just be playing pc game so this wont be a consideration.

I always find it strange when people say they don't want to built a computer themselves so they pass up on a really good deal or a more powerful machine. Even if you don't want to build it yourself, you can easily just buy the parts needed -to- build it from Amazon then take all the parts into a local computer shop who will build it for you with your parts for something like £40. That way it's been properly build and you still have the benefits of a machine where you chose exactly went into it.
