I'm pretty sure this could be built for less than this! What do awd-it do for this price I wonder?

And it might be a nit pick but at this price I'd deffo expect the I/O plate to be colour coded (Black)

As I said in the OP, I'm not an expert on these matters, but there are some expensive components in there, and presumably the 5 year warranty is a good thing?

I'd also be worried if you couldn't self build for cheaper than any pre built device on the labour and convenience alone. Not to mention the warranty you've quoted.

I can't vote either way because I'm too lazy to research whether or not it's a good deal cause I'm not in the market for a PC at the mo.

Still, it wees over my specs

Better on Curry's last week for £999.

Original Poster

I did a quick PC Part Picker (as I'm currently a little bored), going with the VERY cheapest option of all list parts, it's around £1,320.

Bearing in mind that some of these components won't be the cheapest ones, the 5 year warranty, and the fact that not everyone has experience of building a PC (I have, before anyone tries to show off, built my first one in 1994/1995), I still don't think it's a bad deal to be fair.

That hardly anyone was able to get though?

Anyway, I can say from the bottom of my heart that on this occasion I truly don't care what anyone thinks, I just thought it might help someone out.

I'd be happy to pay a small amount extra for the peace of mind, even when it comes down to compatibility of parts and system stability which is never guaranteed when self building.

Took your word on part costing and voted hot.

This is ice cold. Poor value.

Of recent deals much better with the Cyberpower machine for £880 (Ryzen 1600/GTX 1080.

How much??? Lol

You could also build a house for less if you had the raw materials

Do you have the time and ability to do so?

Oh yeah, that's a bit like the Ferrari I posted for £2,000 in the last Fiat Panda deal thread..?

Not voting.

If am paying over a grand and a half I would want at least a 1080TI inside.

It doesn't make it a terrible deal; it's just not a deal.

The Cyberpower machine is a much better deal at little over half the price.

Would this be any good for using notepad, and playing pinball. Or are the graphics of pinball to demanding for such a device. Thanks.

Can be had for £650 or lower. This is what I put together on PCpartpicker. Using near enough identical components. I just couldn't find the same PSU and didn't know the case model or the RAM so I just went with the next best option. Plus included a GTX 1080TI. Comes to £1410 didn't include Windows 10. But an OEM key can be bought for around £10.

uk.pcpartpicker.com/lis…b7h

However, You have to build it your self. Or pay someone to build for you. Or have a look at DinoPC. dinopc.com/onl…old managed to configure a PC with 16GB 2666mhz DDR4 RAM (slightly faster), 250GB SSD, 2TB HDD, Windows 10, 5 year warranty, Z270P motherboard, 750w PSU, Decent cooler. For £70 more than the one you have posted. But again comes with a GTX 1080TI, slightly faster RAM.

Only ever used Dino PC once a few years back. But they where excenlent when I used them.

All the "you could build it yourself cheaper" comments, while valid are ultimately idiotic. If people don't understand why then they have no idea how business works and are, ultimately, stupid.

I have a grip thanks.

Now if you would look just 6 comments up from your comment. You would see I provided a link to a PC specialist where you could for an extra £70 get pretty much the same system as posted here but with a different case, Higher watt PSU, GTX 1080TI, different motherboard, faster RAM, 5 years warranty, delivery included. Or change the 1080TI to a 1080 so it ends up cheaper than this deal.

Chin up am sure you will go digging and find something wrong with the website I linked to and how ebuyer is perfect right?
