Thats with a 2GB 1050? Lmao. Have fun playing medium settings, never mind high or ultra. Not even in the same league as a 1080 8GB

The mobo is a MSI - B350 PC MATE ATX. Its low-end but very capable and has good reviews. The psu is the main concern ,and there is also 99% chance it is a blower style cooler on the gtx 1080. The thermaltake psu would be easy to replace for something more capable for £50 even, chuck in a 120 gb ssd for £35 or a 240gb one for £55 and you're looking at a little shy of £1000. All n all its not so much of a great deal considering these prebuilt pc companies purchase a ton of refurbished components which can have a ton of problems and going through the hassle of sending back your whole pc for the warranty leaves you dead inside(i know from experience). You can build your own for £1000 with better components and an SSD. uk.pcpartpicker.com/lis…zJV There is what i put together. It is missing an ssd which you can pick up from Cex for £40 for a 240gb. It has the same chip, stock cooler, same mobo, DDR4-2666 vs DDR4-2133 ryzen is known to scale well with memory speeds. Same capacity HDD, it doesn't specify what manufacturer but they are all around a similar price point and quality. Gigabyte gtx 1080 G1 gaming gpu, which would outshine a blower-style cooler which is what im suspecting is in this prebuilt. I couldn't find the exact case they have chosen(it is sexy i wont lie). But i have chosen a similar one with a glass panel and with rgb etc(you can choose your own case here its just personal preference). And for the psu an EVGA supernova G2 550W fully modular 80+ gold rated vs a thermaltake 350w. Admittedly i don't have much experience with thermaltake psu's they seem very hit or miss as a company when it comes to product quality. But chances are this psu is a thermaltake 350w lite power, non modular with no reviews online so i really have no trust for it.

Add an SSD and you have a decent machine.

How is this processor for CAD? Can it be swapped for an intel at a later date or would this involve tearing it apart and changing the motherboard - essentially building my own

You'd have to change the motherboard if you switch to Intel. Saying that this is a very capable CPU and could upgrade to a higher clocked AMD processor in the future.

Dont tell u the brand of psu or morherboard. I would avoid.

With the GTX 1080 this is actually a pretty good deal for those who prefer not to build their own (or can't). OC the Ryzen 1600 and it's a perfect match. But if it's a 350W PSU it will struggle. They are most efficient when supplying 50-60% of their capacity and 350W leaves very little headroom.

Q & A


I haven't built one of the new AMD chips but surely 350w with a 1080 and the AMD is pretty much at its limit? Good to see its a ThermalTake though, very good PSU's from them

Great price.

Why not go direct to cyberpowers website?

Think of things not in terms of how the processor is for a task, but how it performs with the specific apps you use. This rig could be vastly better than a 8700k / iGPU combination, or it could be much much worse, depending on how your software uses the CPU and how it benefits from GPU acceleration.

In the title on Amazon it says 600W so go figure?

"Question:
Answer:
At the minute it's a 350W Thermaltake PSU. Chris.

Listing says 600W 80 plus rated...

There is a version there with an 120gb SSD for £939.60

How well do AMD chips perform for video editing in Adobe Premier?

I'm doing a ryzen 7 build right now and its. Come to less than this. If you a good PC for less money then just build it yourself. It really isn't that hard.

Yes that question answered 350watt is odd. No way they would match that to a 1080 Nvida card. Odd that they have picked a 2133 speed DDR4 for such a high end system.
CPU 173 Ram 60 MB 90 Case/PSU 50-100. HD 40 or so. So 400 or so for graphics.

Not bad value but ram could be a bit faster for what it is.

​They had to save costs somewhere and went for memory and ssd.

Seems like a good deal but some notable worries of mine:

-PSU looks like it's at it's limit - higher wattage would've been nice.
-Only 8GB RAN
-RAM is slow
-No Operating System
-No SDD

Still a good deal but a lot of work needs doing, you'll be spending over £1k to make it an efficient machine.

You got to ignore these kinds of posts, someone sees a ridiculous sale on a GPU on eBay or whatever and think that's reasonable for everyone else. I managed to bag a 1060 for £100 that way but it's not like many others can get that lucky all the time. If you make it your job as in spend hours a day on saving money then all power to ya, but this is a good deal and would cost me no time and be a discount from what I could find in a few hours. Heat

Seems a bit cheap compared to the systems on their own web site.
Are we certain the GPU isn't a typo?

You've used a gtx1050. This deal is apparently for a gtx 1080

Initially this looks like a good deal, but as others have mentioned they've skimped on some parts, namely the ram, and PSU.

There's also no SSD.

Do we know what motherboard is in this?

If you're desperate for a gaming system with a 1080 and are on a tight budget then this will do you, but I suspect most people who are going for a 1080 rig would rather spend a bit more and get a tighter system.

I'd rather have a 1070 and they use the difference on an SSD or upgrading some of the other parts.

Woops, I though I put the 1080 on, obviously not.

Had the wrong gpu, sorry guys.

Lots of errors in that listing; most obvious and repeated being "Ryzen 5 1600 3.4GHz"
Base clock of the 1600 is 3.2GHz, boost is 3.6GHz; no idea where they pulled 3.4 from.

Tempted to buy it but I don't know it seems misleading, none of the info or specs match up

They didn't know which clock to advertise so went with the average of the two lol

CAD programs are normally limited by single core speed (in the same way games are) and also you ideally want a professional GPU such as a Quadro or FirePro in most cases (the driver optimisation is very important, some gaming gpus get outperofmred massively by weaker professional cards in some applications). There are a few 3D CAD packages that make use of Direct3D which makes them work well on consumer cards IIRC.

ryzen system, photo shows intel stock cooler

The PSU isn't great but the 1080 and Ryzen are both energy efficient enough 350W shouln't be a problem. Main issue is ram speed as Ryzen really wants fast ram for best results is it's only 2133

Not a bad deal, just for a 1080, ryzen 1600, case, and 8Gb of RAM and 1Tb hard drive, it works out around £830. Depending on the motherboard and PSU (really, the PSU is the biggest concern), then it's not a bad vauled deal.

More odd decisions in that setup than the one posted. Why a Ryzen 7 when the Ryzen 5 best bang for buck atm, especially when only pairing it with a 1050. An optional cooler, when the stock Ryzen one is rather good. The Ram speed is also still too slow 3000 or higher for Ryzen people
