256GB SSD version available @ amazon for £1199. Rest of the specs exactly same as currys version.
Comments on why voted cold?
So a Ryzen 7 1800X coupled with a 580....not well balanced at all. As is often the case with these types of deals.

If they well balance the spec they can't sell for this price. SSD is samsung nmve drive. It's fast. I checked one @ JL oxford street
Any suggestion on a better Gaming PC at that price?

Custom Build is often cheaper and better as you can choose between the balance. It does require assembly knowledge but from my experience anyone can build a computer with a simple YouTube guide. By building a custom PC, you can choose which CPU or GPU you want depending on what tasks you'll be operating on that machine.

All SSD are fast- i wouldn't have mechanical drives in my PCs. Even "slower" SSDs are great. Why would anyone want a Ryzen 7 1800X with a 580- get a slower CPU and faster GPU or a much faster GPU to go with the Ryzen 7 1800X.

Just build one, it's basically adult lego. Plenty of guides online to help you. Plus you will know all the components are decent quality. The majority of prebuilts cheap out on the non headline components, ie they will use cheap mobo, PSU and RAM sticks, because most people only look at the processor, drives, quantity of RAM and maybe graphics cards. Plus I prefer minimalist PC cases! For £1300 you can build one hell of a PC, while learning a lot. Also a 1080 instead of a rx 580, which is 12000 benchmark vs the 7900 of the RX, so a lot more powerful.

Appreciate the replys about the custom builds guys! Had a quick look at …Appreciate the replys about the custom builds guys! Had a quick look at the component costs bought separately and it didn't appear much cheaper to self build but like you say maybe not the best components to use together


Yeah you could build with a gtx1080 or a RX vega for less than that, please research
OMEN by HP 880-025na is the same price from HP direct, dont know the difference between the 015 and 025 but worth checking ifu r buying, seems this is the standard price anyways (£1350) £350 extra is expensive
BUILD YOUR OWN ITS CHEAPER AND MORE CONVENIENT AND RELAXING AND MAKES YOU FEEL LIKE A MAN AND SO FORTH BLAH BLAH BLAH...

Did I do it right?
Can you add more detail when you post a deal please?

You should be adding as much detail as possible not just plonking a picture in and saying here's a product at such and such a price. Especially when it's a pc that has a number of different components inside - people need to know what those components are to make an informed decision.

Yeah but let's be honest, regardless of what is inside, or what the price is, there is a vocal minority that will still bang on about building your own. Always.

That's what the link is for right?
So lets be vocal.....or as I see comments....lets inform....lets guide...£1350 is not chicken fee

There is and always will be.... others on here that can inform you of the best parts to buy and where
and also they will freely guide you on how to build one...or show where to get the best build advice

Some always see comments as negative criticism of the deal....it can be... but sometimes it is deserved
I see comments as positive....makes me think and allows me to do more research.... before committing to buy
Your money... Your mindset.... Your choice.....

Might be worth checking out the scan website sometimes they have some good offers. Got my built PC from there last year for 700 with a Rx480 and a I5 6500 skylake processor on a black Friday deal.

scan.co.uk/3xs…ing here the scan website.... there are others cheaper and dearer, maybe check you tube or google, 'best place to buy a custom pc' or check amazon there are many PC,s under this price with better graphics and often the supplier will swap out parts you wanna exchange, also theres much cheaper ways of getting windows. You tube vids are your friend

Anybody who buys a "gaming" pc from Currys/PCWorld needs their head looking at, check out Scan or Overclockers, hell even Cyberpower are better than this crap

What the 'build your own' brigade fail to understand is that sometimes some people favour convenience over cost, or do not enjoy building a PC.
I can and have put together my own computers in the distant past.
I no longer enjoy that.
I have income sufficient to specify the components and let someone else make it for me at a price that is always higher than building my own.

Tell me, why don't the 'build your own' brigade build their own homes? After all it's cheaper and probably more fun right?

No, that's what the description is for...

Look at putting one together here :

pcspecialist.co.uk/com…pc/

Then something like this:

hotukdeals.com/dea…389

and a few quid off eBay for a win10 license.

Still question if if your really need this high powered CPU to be honest. Downgrade it a bit I would say- even my i7 4970 isn't maxed out by a gtx 1080 so a AMD Ryzen 7 1800X is overkill and costly
