Similar deal to the prev SCAN-Today-only i5 4670K bundle,
(but a little cheaper - as 1TB disk (as opposed to 2TB) and different Cooler Master Case).

Cracking set of components at great price IMHO.

Looks like a great price to me.
Unless I'm missing something, just add a good GPU & you've got a kick as gaming rig.
Non reference GTX 770 can be found for under £200 2nd hand. That's what I'd get.

Very tempting

Nice bundle. Was also looking at building a system around a GTX 770. However, there seems to be getting mixed comments regarding whether a 500W PSU is enough for the card. Else I would be all over this already. Any opinions?

GPU and a New Cooler and you have a really good gaming rig.
Well overclockable too, Hot Hot Hot.

About 430 to buy components on Ebuyer

If it was an 80+ PSU, I would say it would be easily man enough for a GTX770 as it pulls 230w max, if you are thinking of another card in the future, no.
being a 70+ PSU, is my only concern.

Thanks. Good deal but when you plan to buy a £250 graphics card, I guess it doesn't make sense to take a risk on an inadequate PSU. Probably going to go back to my original plan of buying the right parts as and when I see a good deal for them.

This bundle would have saved a lot of hassle of searching though.

Could always grab this and a separate PSU. and flog this PSU on another reputable auction site for about £30

To be honest if you are going as high end as a GTX 770 then I would be looking for a better power supply. I have this spec with a GTX770 but went with a 750w power supply. I also have a water cooler as I found the Haswell ran hot but it was an early model still I agree with ElPansio on a new cooler.

You might get away with 500w but it is really going to limit you in future and not leave you much overhead to expand or over clock.

It's an option. Thanks.

Don't slake me as its all a bit of a new interest, but if you get a slightly lesser spec gpu, say gtx760...or whatever. would this be OK ?

Del00 The power draw from the GTX760 is just a bit over the 150w which with a 500w at 70% PSU is fine you will have some overhead to work with. When you start looking at cards over 200w with 500w PSU then it starts getting all a bit tight. To be honest if you are spending 270 quid on a GTX770 then really can afford to push the boat out a little more a decent PSU.

For this machine a GTX760 would be a good choice if you want a slightly cheaper card the GTX 660

The PSU will be fine for a GTX 770, you'll only hit a problem if you add a 2nd card to that build.

why not just email them and ask them to redo the deal with a better psu? they do listen.

So it boils down to getting a free case or a free psu? I'd prefer to buy the pars individually and get exactly what I wanted, even if a bit more.

Probably pointing out the obvious here, but it doesn't come with an operating system. So that would be an extra cost to consider. Also, in regards to the comments about adding a second card; a quick look at the motherboard says that it only has one graphics card slot. So Crossfire/SLI wouldn't be an option anyway.

If gaming isn't important then the new Ubuntu is truly excellent now. Gone are the days where Linux wasn't user friendly and required technological knowledge to set up. In fact, it's probably easier than Windows nowadays (especially with the Software Centre which makes it so easy to download and install programs - basically like app stores on phones, just search and click install).

I think the reason to get a 4670k would have a strong chance of being gaming. The reason to get the K version is overclocking otherwise why bother paying the extra?

500W is fine for any single modern card you could throw at this build, hot!

I'm an AVForums member. Could you please tell me how I get the free delivery?

How good is this as an office PC? I need it for normal office work + picture and video editing. Would this be adequate? And will it last me a few years without the need to upgrade? Or would I be better off building my own (what hardware would you suggest)? Suitable monitors? Much appreciate any advice.

I've virtually the same spec, only with a dedicated GPU and it's brilliant for office work and video editing. The cpu doesn't have hyperthreading, which is useful for multithreaded tasks like video editing, which it's sister chip the 4770 does (more expensive too), but it still handles those tasks fantastically well.

Thanks for that. Looks like a buy then! Can you recommend a suitable (large) monitor for it?

Great deal, the processor is £163 alone on amazon

Have some heat

500w PSU should be fine with this setup & a 770 at 70+ efficiency.
I'm getting an estimated wattage of 413W so should be ok. Just don't add many more parts or you will likely overload it.
Swapping it out for a reputable brand 80+ is ideal. EVGA 500w 80+ is only £45 odd.

Definitely get an IPS screen.

What size screen? 24" is mainstream & looks nicely sharp @ 1080p. 27" is a nice bump in size, but won't be as sharp due to lower pixel density. It won't look horrible at all, just not as sharp/the pixels are more easy to differentiate.
TBH I doubt most would notice the difference, but thought I'd mention it so you can make a better decision.

What resolution are you looking for? 1080p or higher?

A GTX 760 will be a nice 1080p gaming card. You will get an average of 60 fps on most games at max/near max settings with the occasional dip.

Looking for 1080p / 27". That should be suitable for my needs. Too many options, too hard (or can say, technically illiterate) to choose.

Edited by: "phiras" 28th Feb 2014

Anyone who thinks that a single GPU system will need anything more than 500W is absolutely wrong, even on a bronze efficiency PSU. This coolermaster would be fine. I personally have run dual GTX 680s PERFECTLY well on a 600W coolermaster Gold efficiency PSU, both heavily overclocked with 5 SSDs, a 2500K @ 4.8 ghz and a soundcard etc for more than a year. Now I run two AMD r9 290s on a 850W PSU with problem either. You could run a rig like this with a 7970 or gtx 770 with room to spare on a 400W PSU without a doubt.

Thanks for taking the trouble to reply Redscope99. It is tempting as my old advent running xp seriously needs to be replaced.Been looking at Chillblast site but price gets nearer 4 figures. Just wonder if i really need a machine with that sort of spec.This deal looks pretty reasonable for the money.

It does have space for a 2nd, as the Board is crossfire certified.

I have an old Q6600 2.4 with only 3GB ram (old DDR2) and a GTX470, I mainly do photo editing, but may 'occasionally' play the odd round of Battlefield 3 multiplayer. Would I benefit from buying this system? Would the on-board graphics perform better than my 470?

Will this bundle come with everything required, i.e thermal paste?

Thanks in advance.

I had the 500w coolermaster elite and it didn't work with my i4670k haswell set up..

Beware.

Just pair your graphics card with it and you can play battlefield. You have to put the system together yourself and the thermal paste is already on the CPU, so you just stick it on the motherboard.

Del - Chillblast are a pretty decent company to buy from. You always pay an overhead when someone else put it together but often this can be off set as they buy the items in bulk so often it is not a lot cheaper to buy the bits. They often included OEM copies of windows which saves you money as well.

Still putting it together yourself you can get the parts you really want and it can be rewarding and fun to build machines. I have built most of my machines but a few times you get the point where it is easier just to buy it off the shelve. I have not a problem with any of the builds it is just the panic of bending the pins on your new 200 quid chip. Or powering it up for the first time an nothing happening then to find you pulled out one of the power connectors putting your hard drive in.

No OS - May not work - waste of time. But good price for the parts.
