Latest commentsPost comment

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.

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

centurion01

most games still only use 1 core....



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​

most games still only use 1 core....

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

So the CPU should slightly bottleneck the GPU but nothing much?


by a lot unless you overclock like crazy. It does not mean that cannot be used of course, even if it was a 4 cores might still bottleneck the gpu in some games

The video card is more than capable, in fact on the second hand market it would cost you around £170, perhaps even closer to £200, although prices aer starting to drop.

I5 4460 1tb 8gb 1600Mhz GTX 970 3.5GB (+.5GB) £565.00 @ Freshtech Solutions Banned
Decent spec for the price. Not sure if its cheaper to build yourself, and if it is, its not much
Latest commentsPost comment

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.

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

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



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

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

charleaward81

not 3 only 2 maximum, H81 boards limited by Intel

"ALSO INCLUDES Free 60 Day Trial Norton Internet Security ( OEM ) " which you will not be able to run because this system does not come with an Operating system!
Still voted Hot because at least you will be able to run games well on this machine (once you install an O/S that is).

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...

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.

Not sure what support this supplier offers but I called them at 2pm today (Wednesday) to discuss placing an order and it went to a voice recording to say the office is now closed and will open tomorrow at 9am.

I check motherboard spec (no sata 3) only 6 x SATA 3Gb/s connectors. Is not good for ssd hdd.

I have a 4460 in my gaming rig which I put together last year. It's great and I can play almost any game at ultra @1080p 60fps. (card is GTX 970)

That amd card is just eww.

That CPU has lasted well, I've got mine at 4.5GHz in a 2nd hand Biostar board not even designed for overclocking! Here's a couple of good comparisons: with a much more modern Intel CPU and an older one:

I don't think I'd honestly be capable of putting it all together that's my issue. That's why I was looking at pre Builts but now more people are saying to build yourself. I am just not to sure on what's good and what's not


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.

media.gamersnexus.net/ima…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.

Sorry for presuming you know nothing, but the parts you need are;CPUCPU Cooler (not needed, but if you decide to go with AMD CPU their stock coolers you get with it are often noisy so you would want to replace it)MotherboardMemoryStorageVideo Card (not needed but obviously if you want to game you will have to have one)CasePower SupplyOptical Drive (not needed unless you want a DVD writer for your CD's, ect.Operating systemFor £800, you should be able to build a very good PC. http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/t6kdVn You should be looking for something like this. You might want add a better cooler, and with the spare money you could even upgrade to a gtx 980, but that would take you over the £800 budget. And at £100+ more i really don't think it's good value for money.Also, i'd check out the r9 390, that might be better then the gtx 970 in the long term (and it's just as good as a 970 atm)



Treat me as I know nothing because I literally do hah! I don't think I'd honestly be capable of putting it all together that's my issue. That's why I was looking at pre Builts but now more people are saying to build yourself. I am just not to sure on what's good and what's not

Looking for an i7 4790k setup that could last me several years and has scope for OC. Looks like a decent build with good motherboard
Latest commentsPost comment

seems like a good price for the components, heated.

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.

Thanks will probably give them a try - just wondering if its worth going through their amazon or ebay outlet for a bit of extra protection..?

I bought an i7 with an GTX970 was delivered on time only issue i have had was getting the code for the free game with the video card i eventually got it after a few phone calls.

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.

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.

Agree with you on the 960 and SSD bit. Sorry OP but this seems to be normal price let alone legendary. Plus this combination does not really make it any faster than an i5+8GB+970/290x+SSD as a gaming rig, if not slower.



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.

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.

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