I was building a very similar deal yesterday on Amazon UK and was already over this price. Admittedly, this is not my area of expertise, but it seems like a pretty good deal for me.

Am I missing something?


Seagate...really? In one fell swoop, you made this cold.

Why the hate for Seagate? Sure it won't be the fastest drive in the world but for a budget system it will do the job.

It's missing a graphics card though (if you intend to game).

The Barracuda drives are not bad at all.

Looks like my original comment of 'seems about right for the price' was deleted. Not really sure why. Is it because I called the motherboard 'entry level' and that I was not confident in the reliability of the PSU?

Its not the Seagate drive I'd worry about in that bundle, it's the psu.

Expired as price has risen.

theres nothing wrong with seagate drives. Who even cares about HDD performance for a personal PC anymore?

I have a seagate drive in one of my desktops and its still been Ok for me is 2 years old. I have read before that people prefer western digital as they are apparently better in terms of reliability but like I say mines been Ok.

No gpu on this build and whats that PSU? Is it reliable? Who's the oem?

Total £419.48 including shipping

and the problem with bundle deals is you're often stuck with one or more component that isn't your first or even necessarily last choice, for instance, that power supply, which I can only find on eBay and Scan and which I could find no reviews of. If you change that PSU for, say, the EVGA 500B 500W 80+ BRONZE at £35.70 on Amazon, or a Corsair model, you're paying about £10 more for those components on Amazon, with the advantage of Amazon's hassle free returns process (or at least to date I have had no problems with it), though you could shop around from multiple dealers and perhaps save a few more pounds. So, yes, in fairness a saving with that Scan bundle if you want that power supply, albeit a small one. I think the deal is only one day.
