Woah GOOD DEAL!


Not really.

No ssd, slow & cheap memory, not a great psu.

Even with inflated GPU prices, you can get a better pc for the price.
Vinster0071 m ago

But does it come with 3 year warranty


I'll take 2 year part warranty from Amazon over any crappy prebuilt reseller warranty anyday of the week.

You picked exactly the same EVGA 80+ 500w PSU that this deal comes with. How is this one better?
The motherboard on this is a Gigabyte Z series so no worries upgrading either.
The memory you picked is 3000mhz but are the memory timings slower? If so this negates any frequency advantage. CL16 is on the slow side.
Its also a mini version of the gpu you selected. These are notorious for running hotter and therefore slower.
I'll always choose building over pre made but don't make out there are advantages where there aren't any.

I just built a rig with a 1060 and an i5 8400 and it came to £720 , I likely bought better ram etc than what's included but still shows that you couldn't build much cheaper , if at all.

I meant if you built yourself, now this is "better" - faster 3000mhz RAM, upgrade-able path for motherboard (if you wanted to go to a 8600K/8700K in the future) - a better psu (the best of the budget psus)

Not bad, but the Intel NUC with Vega looks incredible in terms of form factor. Barely bigger than a power brick:

Are you not reading the context in which I wrote the paragraph?
I said, if the GPU prices come down to normal, you would save £50 towards an SSD/buy an SSD with that.

Like, I don't understand, it isn't difficult to read what I wrote, I know Britain has an extremely high rate of really stupid people, but don't be one of them please!


MysticalUndies8 m ago

There is plenty of PSU's and RAM around the same price, I said I picked any within 30 seconds to prove a point. The fact of the matter is, 3000mhz ram is much better than 2400mhz ram, whether you like that or not, so the same applies to you as the above poster.

Why are you talking about memory timings like you even understand computers? Like, for gaming which clearly this build would be used for, frequency trumps timings, and CL16 is perfectly fine.

I love how you say GPU's are notorious for running hotter (even funnier when talking about a 1060), you're just chatting nonsense, do you own much hardware yourselves?

Yes, well done, I read the bottom line of the OP that said "450W" as I skimmed through it. My point was nothing other than what I said in one of my first replies: "this is about thirty seconds of looking at components, without looking for any deals on parts, with inflated GPU prices. "

My point still stands, and is correct.

Yes, they do. This can be shown in ENDLESS benchmarks.
you can call them and swap a few parts around if thats an issue but for the main parts its a cracking deal
the processor is the coffee lake i5 so thats about 150.graphics card you be lucky to find below 250 and thats usually the mini(i know same performance but not everyone's cup of tea) then the MB for coffee lake are all expensive at present so thats 85-100 right there and then 60-80 for RAM.that alone is nearly 600 pounds.
