Another great deal for new faster version of geforce 1080 from novatech. Amazing cooling system and slightly faster than recently posted MSI Gaming X version.

Great deal, tempted to get one.

Me to and tempted for twenty quid a month

Been looking at upgrading but can’t decide 🤯

Proof if ever it was needed that the 1070Ti is a dumb purchase.

Tempted....

Has it been cheaper? I really need a new GPU but been waiting months since I've been listen to "wait till the RX 580 comes out. Wait till RC Vega comes out. Wait till GTX 1070Ti. Etc"

Is this worth the extra £5 or should I go with this hotukdeals.com/dea…479 since it's MSI and From Amazon

Not much. I paid £430 for mine back in July but that was a rare offer and I just quickly grabbed it. This is still a great price.

I might buy But I don't know. Do you know a good CPU and motherboard for to pair with this? I impulse bought a Oculus Rift in a Currys Price glitch (£330 with a purchase of a Mouse pad)

What do you recommend? I don't need ram. PSU. Harddrive

Currently I got a I5 4460 and a GTX 960 2gb so its a big upgrade lol

Well these cards are too long for my case, BUT, the same site had the Zotac 1080 mini down to £477 delivered tomorrow, and i can get £90 for my present GTX970, so for a total output of £390 for a 1080 i thought what the hell, so i grabbed one.

So heat anyway even if it was a different card.

You might be asking the wrong guy. I paired mine with a £100 i7 from an AliExpress and an Asrock Z170 board that cost about the same from Amazon and it flies. I'm quite creative like that though.

Depending on which kind of CPU and board you decide to buy though, you may need to change your RAM to DDR4 and RAM is expensive atm.

I'm guessing I'll be fine with 8gb DDR3

My CPU is not bad. The GPU is bad imo, I think I might buy the GPU then upgrade the CPU later, I just read some forum and people says you'll be fine and won't get bottlenecked, just that CPU intensive games may not be the best also Intel I7s from AliExpress? Are they real? that's a new one for me

Your current CPU is fine however it might be a slight bottleneck in more CPU intensive stuff like BF1 (64 player) and AC: Origins. It's all a question of the type of games you play though really.

The AliExpress CPU's are definitely real, I assure you. I've been using one for over a year. They require a bit of tweaking but it's a 5 minute job and there are plenty of guides out there to help you.

I'd recommend watching this video first. I had one before this video and a few others like it came out because I discovered them on a Korean forum last year but they've risen in popularity quite a bit since then. There's also a big community of users on the Overclock.net forums.




If you're considering getting one then I'd recommend this one:

aliexpress.com/ite…tml

It's not the cheapest variant out there but that's the same one that I use. It's one of the easiest to deal with and provides great results. On an AsRock, Gigabyte, Asus or MSI Z170 board you can get 3.8-4.0GHz out of it with basically zero effort and just a basic cooler will do.

So is it basically the same performance as a i7 6700 like it says? I'm tempted.

I currently have a Gigabyte Z97P-D3

Do you think I'll need a new motherboard to run the chip?

These are all parts in my first budget build in September 2015 so don't laugh

It is basically an i7-6700. It's just a non-retail version of it which defaults to a lower clock speed (hence why you need to make sure you use a decent motherboard).

I use the Asrock Z170 Extreme4 basically because Amazon were doing a decent deal on it this time last year but the Pro4 is an extremely popular option and would work just as well.

amazon.co.uk/AsR…BZU

I was the same as you and I was a little doubtful of these things before I took the plunge and just tried one.

This one should also do the job in your case and would allow you to keep running your old DDR3. Just make sure that you run the Skylake BIOS on it and not the latest Kaby Lake one because that disables the Turbo B-Clock chip that Gigabyte included on the board and it's that chip that really makes this CPU shine.

Yeah these chips are LGA1151 Intel 6th generation. Your board is for 4th and 5th generation LGA1150 CPU's.

With that Gigabyte Z170 board in my last post and the QHQG chip you'd probably be looking at around £230 all in though and you could probably make most of that back (if not all) reselling your old parts on Gumtree/Ebay/CEX.

Do you think I should buy this, is there anything better for cheaper or a similar price (also the CPU you said and I may buy the GTX 1080 from this deal) I think it's probably better to get some new ram so I can get a mobo for much cheaper. I don't know why the DDR3 ones are more expensive

That RAM is laptop RAM and would be no good to you. If you were looking to jump to DDR4 (which is probably the best route tbh) then you'd need something like this.

DDR4 isn't going to mean that you can get a dirt cheap motherboard for that CPU though and neither should you. Really cheap motherboards (sub £60-70) usually cause more trouble than they solve.

If you do want to stick with DDR3 (which would be fine) then it's not too expensive at all.

The case on Maplin is fine. Nothing special but it would get the job done and looks quite pretty if you're into that kind of thing.

Desktop RAM without a case does exist but you wouldn't want to use it on a gaming PC.

OK yeah, you probably want a GTX 1080 to push 144hz then. My 1080 with that Chinese CPU averages around 100-110 fps on Battlefield 1 at 1440p but that's completely maxed out.

You don't need top of the range to have a great gaming computer.

The RX 480 was not 150. I have the 8gb version, cost me just over 250. £270 for a 580 sounds fine.
