Great find £300 ish for processor and Psu .Doubt you could build it cheaper. Voted hot but went colder..??
Pricing all the components on ok prices, I make it £420 if you bought the items individually (without spending hours price hunting)
Wow what an epic gaming PC which doesn't even come with a graphics card.
For anyone interested, the onboard graphics will run GTA 5 in 720p, normal settings at about 25-30fps. Obviously i'd recommend a dedicated GPU if you were to buy this.
"Gaming" PC aka PC with snazzy case with LEDs.
But overall a good setup at a good deal, and would go perfect with one of the new GeForce 1080/1070 cards and a separate 1TB+ hard drive to actually store any games

Stick in a new gtx 1080 (£500 - £650) and you will have an amazing gameing pc.
Cheaper than the sum of its parts, but if you were to build a PC today you wouldn't use those parts.
Voted hot as it'd make quite a powerful general use machine, but nowhere near a gaming machine.

Exactly, and if it was for use as a gaming machine you'd see no benefit from the i7 so you could build a better i5 skylake based box for around the same cost plus your choice of gpu.

Benefit in this deal is just if you can make use of the i7 and want it prebuilt.

During the time you took to press hot, 10 other members could have voted cold so when you hit hot and the page refreshed it takes into account other votes. If you'd just hit F5 to refresh the screen you'd see the same effect. This seems to cause many members confusion unsurprisingly

would be good if the website/link would work!
Heat - good value compared to buying the parts yourself but lets face it, without a decent HD and graphics card this is not a gaming rig.
Ok value for the parts but its called a gaming pc and has no graphics card!!!!

It also only has 120gb ssd which is not much disc space at all, especially if you want to install games on it!!!

It also has no operating system....you will need to spend another (roughly) £300 to turn this into a gaming pc

So far as I can see it's one graphics card away from a gaming machine.
Unless there is something massively wrong with the other parts?
rather misleading for them to call it a Gaming PC with no dedicated Graphics Card. Yes you could buy whatever spec gpu you wanted separately and install in yourself but if you were the type of person who was going to mess around doing that you are probably also the type of person who would just build the whole thing themselves and N1Andy has already summed that up nicely.

Hot as a general purpose machine but going to vote cold as I'd hate for someone to think this is a cracking deal for a Gaming PC, because it's not particularly.

There's absolutely no need to spend that much. A £150 graphics card would turn this into an amazing gaming PC. A £550 graphics card would turn this into an enthusiast-grade VR/4k-ready machine. You make PC gaming seem very expensive.

This build is cheap when you look at its parts, but is there any need for a top-of-the-range £250 CPU? It would be impossible for anyone to tell the difference if it had a £150 i5 instead.

Overall I don't recommend this. pcpartpicker.co.uk is a much better way to find a PC.

Agreed. At which point you might as well sell the i7 and replace it with a £100-cheaper CPU to save some money. At which point you might as well just build your own PC.

​and the rest.
Good starter system, Add a bigger 480GB System SSD, 4TB 2nd Drive and good GFX card.
That adds another £250 to the price.
I imagine that such machines are primarily aimed at teenagers, hence the garish colours and designs of the cases, whom may not have the funds to buy the full rig in one go i.e. add the graphics card down the line.
I am currently building a gaming machine for my son and this is what we decided to do, relying on the internal graphics of the Skylake 6600K in the interim period. At the moment he's only interested in playing CS:GO and so we have no problem there. Plus, with the new Nvidia cards just about to burst onto the market, it's not a bad time to hold back on a purchase of a graphics card.
The 1150 won't take DDR4, nor the upcoming Kirby Lake, but I suspect neither will be in issue for the purchasers of this machine.
Not exactly the greatest set of reviews for this company on Google with an average score of 2.9 out of 5.
Their website seems to be having major problems .... just SQL errors.... is this company actually legit?

They've been around for quite a long time. I suspect they've tried to update the item because of all the sudden unexpected interest and screwed up.
This would make a great portable heater.

They sell a lot through Amazon - I've seen some whilst I've been looking for a new Photoshop tower.


[edit]
Just checked and their own listing of the same PC on Amazon is £440

I've been looking to get a build for the new 1080. I'm no PC building expert but if I buy this, will the components cope with the 1080 fine?

Cheers

You'd be better to structure a PC more around gaming (e.g. save money on the i7 and spend it on more memory/different HDD configuration)

Go onto Reddit and check out reddit.com/r/b…me/

Lots of helpful people who will put a build together for you based on requirements/budget
Pick up a Z400 with X5650 for £150. Put in a GTX 960/ R9 for another £150. Gaming PC as good as this with an actual graphics card for £300.

It should do as the PSU is fine. If you can afford to buy a 1080 then I'd personally spend another £300 and buy a Skylake i5 based base PC, don't forget you also will need to add an OS to this.
Any link to the Z400 with X5650 for £150? Looking for a desktop machine to drive a 4k monitor at 60Hz, with SSD and fast processor. All for 2d work. Just need screen real estate, not 3d gaming.

Short answer: No

Long answer: Build one yourself, if you are confident you can put a card into a pc then you are pretty much able to build one yourself.

As above said, reddit build a pc is a good place to go and also PC Part Picker

Estimate your overall budget and remember that the 1080 is over £600 for launch.

those three things would be more than £250! two drives alone you've mentioned are close to £200 total
I went for this one in the end - better gaming and CPU does the job - palicomp.co.uk/amd…av3
ITS NOT APPPPPLLLLLLEEEEEEE!!!
An enthusiast would get a 1366 mobo and pair it with say, a Xeon X5670 and oc it to an inch of it's life. That's probably £140ish for the cpu and mobo. 128/256 SSD, case, PSU. Probably looking at about £260ish.. inc 8 GB of ram. Wait for Polaris 10/11 to come out and nab one of those or just get a R380 for £130ish. So total would be less than £400 without keyboard/mouse and OS. You'd have a slightly outdated motherboard, but performance would be equivalent to the 4790.

Of course you would have to put it topgether yourself
I just purchased this from Amazon for £855.34 : amazon.co.uk/gp/…c=1

I wanted an all round desktop which is future proof for next 3-4 years even though I know new graphics cards are coming out. It's from Amazon warehouse so I got 30 days to change my mind. Have I paid too much? Are there better desktops for the price? sorry my expertise on computers is not the best.

It is a lot of money, a 780ti is also a little outdated as Nvidia dont support older card with decent driver updates.=, but still fairly fast.

I'm sure you can get something much better on ebay. For that price you should really get a monitor as well.

Ouch I got a skylake i7 6700K with a gtx 970 6 months ago for less than this.... on the plus side you have a huge amount of RAM -DDR 3 and a 500GB SSD and windows OS.

Could you provide a link for where I could start looking on eBay please? I wouldn't know where to start and it's a bit daunting when you type "desktop pc" in the search bar and you get a gazillion results :-) Thanks
