Thanks, ended up doing it myself, wasn't bad at all with a couple of YouTube vids. Hadn't built one in 15+ years, but not a lot had changed thankfully.

I used Mesh Computers for mine just before Christmas and they did a great job. Well built, talked to a rep who was able to adjust everything to my liking and when I booted up I saw they threw in a free upgrade to Windows Pro. After sales was very good, too. Here's a look at what I got. https://youtu.be/8mtU5z6J9x0

A friend of mine couldn't say enough good things about CyberPower. He had to get something in his PC checked and they were great for support, so he says.

I've seen it much cheaper if you watch the prices This PC would be £1000 in a another (better) universe where there is no crypto miners, Ram prices are normal, SSD prices are normal If they dont start going back to normal soon, PC gaming will die, the manufacturers don't care since they are making a lot of money When they are making cards now I don't think they have gamers in mind, they are thinking "we've gotta make this card cheap but the best for mining, we need plenty of stock"

Xanthic

i've been looking at custom built gaming pcs and this doesn't seem bad at all. aside from the psu (and maybe ssd to boot), is it really that bad performance wise:/ EVGA gold 650w should suffice? Which are better psu subs?

​PS4 only records in 720 from memory, so doesn't show true quality in YouTube. Some bargain pcs there, however.

Kudos to those who have a PC for £300. Word to the wise do not scrimp on the psu.

To be fair, the graphics card RX 480 is BETTER than gtx 750ti see http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:http://hwbench.com/vgas/radeon-rx-480-vs-geforce-gtx-750-ti&gws_rd=cr&ei=ybCbV7HZEcyFgAbf54P4DA but you're paying 2x as much as the PC I recommended??????

the benchmark on the processor in this model is 4975 https://cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?cpu=AMD+A8-7650K nb this is the PROCESSOR benchmark I don't know much about graphics benchmarks. All I know is my graphics card GTX 750ti is awesome - it is a low powered graphics card that beats PS4.

Hmind

This is a terribly designed pc, even the best available amd cpu's have bottleneck issues with a gpu of this calibre, let alone this 1.5 core pile of crap. they also require higher speed ram to work better and the stock cooler is the old one and will be loud and bad at cooling. The gpu will also be running hot, there's no mass storage so all you get is that 120gb ssd (not even a good one it's one of the cheapest and worst performing ssd's available) so this would be able to install like 5 indies or 2AAA games and finally no os. Pls no one buy this.

jayd95

hate seeing these custom PCs they throw a great graphics card, decent ram and decent storage and then out in a horrific cpu with a limited motherboard so tobuograde you have to basically start again

MeistroUK

most newer games use more than 1 core, gta v needs 4... this graphics card can easily max it out at 1080p, the cpu can't - its a crazy build​

centurion01

most games still only use 1 core....

MeistroUK

That must be the most unusual build ive ever seen... a dual core cpu with a high end graphics card, is this company insane oO

Decent spec for the price. Not sure if its cheaper to build yourself, and if it is, its not much
Noclouds

If you build a close-to identical computer yourself, you are usually fitting full retail box versions of the components, whereas a bulk builder is usually buying OEM versions, which usually have a limited one year warranty on each component; the retail box components, depending on what is chosen, might come with several year warranties, bundled extras, free games, software, etc. To me, that's the main appeal of building your own, or at least something to keep in mind when comparing a prebuilt system with a system that appears to use identical components. If the price was very close, though, I would rather save my precious time and get a friend to buy the pre-built model.

charleaward81

For an extra £10 on top of the retail price of just the motherboard you can get a better specced B85 chipset 4 Slots for ram, 4 USB 3.0 on rear, 4 SATA III slots which gives you little more flexibility and £10 more on top of CX 600 PSU would net you a higher quality Seasonic S12-11 620W For around £20-£25 on top you have much better overall machine but seriously the case, I understand Gaming is just a word used loosely across the internet especially with Parts thrown together to make a PC but its by far anything but deemed a Gaming Case. Just trying to take it out of the box will probably cause it to twist and bend. And don't forget the PSU is top mounted so will spend it days sucking in hot air from all the rest of the parts and with no airflow, well good luck to those using your PSU as a Heat Extraction Unit

charleaward81

Did notice that after I press post comment. I was talking to someone on youtube 15 mins ago about exact same thing and they have same low end H81 based board and someone arguing that triple monitor is supported as its says on Processor Spec sheet just trying to explain to them in as simple english as possibly that it is and isn't but does depend on other components but they are adamant they are right and now the other person thinks there PC is faulty. They just has Intel HD on-board though The motherboard was exactly the same one and the last comment mentioned triple screens, didn't have chance to delete before you replied

charleaward81

Might be good price but limited and you can change out PSU for much better make moment for almost same price. Its only got couple of USB 3.0 and its all VIA chipset which has always been plagued, even the case is that cheap it doesn't even has USB 3.0 ports. This comment on description suggest case has no fans installed or maybe just 1, even though very limited to start with only 2 fan slots in case "Additional Case Cooling Optional, Fully Upgradeable, Overclocking Potential" What overclocking potential, there isn't really any, exceptions for Graphics Card but that is it. And as far as upgrades go, except for a small bump in processor speed from a couple of i5's above this one or waste £200+ on i7 you haven't really got any upgrade options in that instance, no i5-4690K going on this board. Ram slots are both full so will need to spend over £65+ on 16Gb, no room for any more drives in this case except maybe an SSD and that is all you can really have as it only have 2 of the latest SATA III sockets. And glad to see they offer the mandatory Warranty yet make it sound like they are doing something really good "1 Year Collect and Return Warranty Included with all our Computers. Buy with confidence knowing if anything goes wrong we will pick up the Computer and repair it at no cost to yourself during your warranty period which shows the faith we have in the products we sell." GPU comes standard with 2 years some makes/models even more, PSU 3 Years, Motherboard 2 Years, CPU 3 Years, RAM normally Lifetime. HDD if not OEM or already used normally 2-3 Years. And its noted that most of these with GTX 960/970 cards are the single blower plastic ones and in this case and 80+ temps it will be so loud it will become a huge irritant, plus diminished performance due to heat

rev6

If it didn't have a GTX 970 that might be true. The GTX 970 supports > 2 monitors.

I strongly suggest building a PC yourself. I was also tempted to buy from freshtech (and posted a similar deal which received a lot of heat), but here's a few reasons why I decided against it: 1) Poor motherboard, very limited in terms of upgrading CPU 2) 970 will probably be a cheap Palit/Zotac reference blower which run hotter and noisier than Gigabyte, MSI, EVGA, etc. 2) PSU is not the best 3) No aftermarket cooler - I guess not really required for an i5-4460, but it will still help keep the PC running cool and quiet 4) The case in this deal is not great If you have the know-how to build your own PC, willing to learn it, or know someone willing to do it, then I strongly suggest you build this PC yourself. I just built one very similar to the specs in this deal, although it has none of the problems mentioned above. I used Bespoke to get lower prices... http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/gDFmMp Came to £583.11 in total. If my cashback comes through, it will be around £500.

Graphics wise how would this compare to GTA5 on the PS4 or Xbone, comparable, better? I'm thinking of making the switch to PC and Steam and building a rig with an i5 4460 but I'm clueless on graphics cards these days and how long before an upgrade is due. My budget is between £400 and £500 top end including O/S. I do like nice graphics as a console gamer but want the Steam prices!!! I've thought about building this but would appreciate any advice. I already have an SSD and some spare storage and would also use this PC for Gamemaker, Unity, Gamesalad and emulation.

Best way to find out what is best for you is just go to on pc part picker and look at the amount of reviews/star rating and then checking out youtube benchmarks of various setups to see if they run as good as you'd want the games to run. Building your own pc is alot better, but it may be better to get a pre built if you are totally clueless, especially one that offers good value for money such as this one. What I'd suggest is just to watch a few videos of people building a computer. The computer case is made so that all the parts only fit in one place, so you can not put them in the "wrong" place. Other then that you just have to connect the 4-pin power cables to all the hardware, and then connect all the hardware to the motherboard using a SATA cables. Then the only wires you need to plugin are the sound/power/on off cables/sound/usb/boot. There is a tiny little section on the motherboard where they all go, the wires and the part of the motherboard are labelled so that you know where to put what. http://media.gamersnexus.net/images/media/2013/hardware/motherboard-diagram1.jpg Might be helpful getting to know what goes where. You don't even need to know most of what is what on motherboards, jsut where the hardware you will be using to connect. So for example CPU (goes on the motherboard), Memory (RAM) (Goes on the motherboard), CPU Cooler (goes ontop of the CPU), Hard drive (connected to the motherboard), video card (Goes on the motherboard), Power Supply (Connected to motherboard), DVD writer (Connected to motherboard). Other then that, you don't really need to know any thing else about the motherboard.

If your main use for this PC is gaming its not well balanced, any latest gen i5 paired with a 970 would out perform this in games by a long way. Also the PSU is low quality with a bad reputation.

​Wrong.

ollie87

TDP doesn't matter in a desktop machine. R9 380 is faster for the same, sometimes less, cash. Which makes the 960 poor value for gaming.

bokertov

Very poor?? runs all latest games on 60fps on 1080p plus very low tdp!

ollie87

GTX 960 is VERY poor for gaming. AMD is cheaper and faster. http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/Lt23Jx

Can someone tell me if it's a good build for money and performance http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/MGCTgs Thanks a million

Yes, it can be built for cheaper, but not by much, and some people don't know how to build their own PCs. The only part I changed was the PSU, 600W is overkill and the XFX PSU is better.

I genuinely don't get why people oc the 4790k. I get its a k cpu, but it's fast enough as it is and overclocking it just makes it run hot, swallows more power, reduces the life span and let's be brutally honest, there's very little performance difference. For an enthusiast a 5820k would be more suitable, and even then it doesn't need silly overclocks as that's fast enough. Each to their own i guess.

I was going with the exact parts, so the more expensive PSU etc. EDIT: Ah, I got the PSU wrong. So yeah, you could build for less.

You can play anything with any graphics card. Does it matter? Put your 5450 into a £700 rig and play games at 600x800 low setting 30fps. That surely sounds like the most exciting thing to do.

I can play Battlefield 3 on my Sapphire HD 5450...

It's just a lot to learn with PC compared to console gaming. Would be using one monitor for the game and 2 other monitors for stream related programs. I was hoping to get the right PC for around the £500 mark.

thegamingkinginfo

This *should* be fine for that but depending on how many monitors you have, resolution and the game you play could cause it to lag a bit. The graphics card is fine, great for streaming and gaming. The i5 4460 might be alright but its better to do some research before buying. 8GB of ram should be fine too but depends on what you use and play.

scottydoo88

Anyone know if this PC would be good enough for gaming and streaming on Twitch at the same time?

Crazygooner1

Thanks buddy. Any other games played? I am so tempted.

gigan1994

I would say it is good for money and the fans are reasonably quiet. Added an extra 8gb of Ram and 3TB HDD and two new fans so the case is good in terms of upgradeability. I've been playing GTA V on ultra @ 1080p with Anti Aliasing down to 4x

The price on this system send to have jumped to £822.00 inc Vat. when I clock the link

Serio

Is the fan on the front of yours blowing hot air out of the case or is it sucking cold air into the case?

j4j

So you were delivered faulty item but you have to pay to return the faulty item. Surely that's not allowed under UK law?

quertbarbie62

I did, they want me spend money to send the item back, then when they got the item, its only then when they'll send me a replacement. If I did that, I wasted money for expediting delivery,I waste money sending the item back then I will wait another week to get a replacement. They could have send the delivery guys to send me a replacement and have them pick the faulty one up on the same day. but they have to make it inconvenient so that if you try to return or refund the item you still lost money. which isnt good

jeffmorris

Hmm, I might look into getting a 92mm exhaust fan as they are cheap and would make sure that hot air is pushed out
