Please note there is a discrepancy with the information. It states on CCL that it comes with a 400watt PSU, but the Gigabyte reference and code stipulate a 450watt PSU. So please confirm with CCL which PSU is included.

Excellent bit of budget kit , Good Find

Got one of these before for a budget build nice little set

Considered this the other day actually but the lack of front USB 3.0 put me off. In the end I went for a slightly dearer Gigabyte case - just a heads up if that makes any difference to someone.

For the price though this bundle is almost unbeatable, heat OP!

Good for a low budget or system builders looking to keep costs to a minimum. The PSU is not even bronze certified, and the case itself has no USB3 ports. Flimsy plastic contruction and only accommodates two 80mm fans."

It's just a case/psu/keyboard & mouse combo no other hardware.

1st rule of PC building: don't trust the PSU bundled with a cheap case. Not just because they're usually unreliable and short lived, the typical lower efficiency will cost you more in power bills than it saved upfront (or it will die so prematurely that hardly matters).

Usually true. What I've read is that Gigabyte couple this kit with a 400w / 450w rebadged FSP manufactured Power Supply Unit. So while not the greatest manufacturer, they normally utilise satisfactory, workhorse components that are with in the tolerance levels of most cheap, low wattage system builds. Of course if you stress the PSU heavily it will undoubtedly fail or brown out but then you'd purchase a better quality PSU from a leading manufacturer (i.e. Enermax, Seasonic). Concerning efficiency ratings even a Bronze certified (80% efficiency) PSU non-modular will cost you around £35 alone.

Yes read the reviews thus the quandary whether to post this kit, but if people are only spending £35 on all the peripherals then maybe this is an acceptable option.

I've built a number of systems with this case.

The supplied 450W PSU comes with one PCIe 6-pin cable for your GPU.

I've successfully built several games systems with an FX-6300 and GTX 760. The 760 requires two six-pin inputs, but a dual molex to six-pin PCIe adaptor works fine.

These systems get heavy use so unless you're planning to stick an R9 290 in there, I think you'll be fine.

This would go nice with a budget build such as an Intel i3, 8 GB ram and GTX 750 TI: uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/v…Qgs Which should currently perform on par with PS4 for £330.

Yup, and according to my watt meter, the max load during gaming is just 260W. What's your point?

Its all well and good recommending emermax or seasonic but buying one that is in stock is another matter. Tried to buy 2 seasonic or emermax ones at xmas. Yes sellers like ebuyer and amazon have sales pages but they don't have them in stock. As for support, its non existent. I gave up and went with the inferior corsair rm gold series

It's actually fairly quiet, and a max 260W load is a max 260W load whether you think it is efficient or not. But feel free to continue justifying your immensely expensive PSU.

Just examples. Just examples. The reason for only detailing Seasonic and Enermax (Lepa) were mainly as they both manufacture their own branded Power Supply Units, as well for others. Unlike Corsair who utilise a number of manufacturers to produce their products. Although all three (and maybe Antec, Superflower, and Silverstone) have now a history of utilising the best electrical components in their top units. Of course there are many other excellent branded PSU distributors XFX, Zalman, OCZ, Thermaltake, Tagan etc etc but then again it would involve a long detailed discussion.

People never learn. And a special shout out to the expert advocating the use of Molex to 6pin adapters. You hero!!!

Not too sure what your trying to say with people never learn could you expand which way you are inferring?

As to Easy Cheesy advocating Molex - specifically he stated dual molex (maybe being pedantic but its a huge difference) - took a bit of effort but found a screenshot of the spec on the psu and its dual rail so as long as the connector is of good enough quality and between both rails then what he is advocating should be ok for a budget solution (also expect it to be an FSP but have struggled to identify it that far).

If you are interested in playing high quality modern games, it may be cheaper to build your own using this as a starter. Particularly if you have an operating system.
If you just want a cheap pc, don't bother, buy a complete system such as this quad core 2..4 Ghz Pentium with keyboard and mouse and windows 8.1 with bing for just under £150 incl delivery.

Not sure if it will be the one above as that is listed as having 2 x PCi-e connectors, whereas the one in the OP only lists one.

I am currently running a Core i7 860 with a 6950 using just a 350W PSU and it seems to be running fine. Used a dual molex splitter for the second PCi-e slot on the card and not had any problems. And both molex are connected to the same daisy chain. I got my PSU and case from Ebay for £25 delivered. Was a bit skeptical at first but not had any problems as of yet.

May upgrade to a more powerful PSU at the end of the month but will not go overboard. Probably a basic Corsair or something similar for about £35.
