pretty poor spec for the money


Hi, please would you point me in the right direction for a better PC? I'm in the market for a Gaming PC and this one seemed to tick all the boxes. I'd really appreciate getting an idea on what I should expect for this sort of budget. Thank you.

​1060 and i5 6600k

yep that's a great spec - fast PC, OP but is it value for money? that's my only point

you've got to keep your eyes open eg I saw this http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/zoostorm-core-i5-4440-quad-core-sff-desktop-pc-6gb-ra-500gb-hdd-no-os-189-99-zoostorm-2535868

and bought this hotukdeals.com/dea…120 - which is not so different to your spec though I wouldn't claim it's a gaming PC

I stuck in 16GB of HyperX Savage RAM for free (another deal here) and away you go, decent computing power on the cheap

I got one of these 6 months ago from JL for £799 i7 16gig return product.

Not great value imo...

I've just built my own with i5 6600K, 16gb RAM, 550w PSU and 3gb 1060 for a lot less than this.

Overclocked to 4.8ghz this aft!

You're comparing a kit-car to a factory-made car. Of-course the kit-car will cost less, because you're not paying for labour - only parts. Cool story, anyway.

Nice comparison but you missed the point...

Building a car is impossible for the ordinary bloke because of the technical ability and machinery needed. Building a PC with parts is like building Lego. It can be done in 30-40 mins if you know what you're doing.

The comparison is utterly in the wrong level.

Try and u tube "pc build 30 minutes", saves you loads and actually teaches you essential pc maintenance and upgrade skills

Your analogy falls over when you consider scale - they pay nothing like what we do buying individual components and paying the retail chain in between. Good examples where you can't build for the cost is the budget servers which are often posted on here and would allow good basis to upgrade into gaming machines such as dell t20 or lenovo ts140 that are bargains with cashback deals.

​Worth checking scan website they make decent prebuilt pc's, there's a desktop for £650 with a gtx 1060 it does have a i3 but it be fine for gaming, I'm sure some one will comment that it won't but the i3 6100 got a decent review online and there's also a article on eurogamer for its performance.

I think you're missing the point that it's quite redundant to compare a rig with a pre-made. Others already made the point about value for money but I appreciate your input anyway

Disregarding the question of an ordinary bloke building a car, I was using the car as a metaphor.

Thanks, but this was a metaphor rather than a case-study comparison. Appreciate the input though! PCs are way too complicated an area for someone like me, so it all helps!

You clearly think it's OK to compare two different propositions. I don't think it's worth continuing to illustrate why it isn't. Hope you have a pleasant new year.

The metaphor fails on its basic premise which is that kit cars are difficult to make and are not mainstream. Or that they require advanced machinery or expertise. Amateur pc builds are non of the above.

My metaphor made no mention or reference to the difficulty involved in building a kit car, merely that they are cheaper.
