Thinking on picking up this as it’s cheaper than it would be to build by the looks of it.

The 3 year warranty also seems like a good bonus.

What do you think? Opinions would be appreciated, would it be better to wait for New Years/January to get a better bargain?

I'd rather have the 8th gen processor. From the benchmarks I've seen you would do just as well with a mid range 8600K than the more expensive i7-7700k.

Also for a PC with all that hardware to not have a SSD seems pointless. You should be having an M.2 drive on it, as that would actually perform much better than them throwing all the processor and graphics card at it.

Save money, build something sensibly thought through.
Will it run minecraft with super duper graphics?

This looks good for the price, shame about lack of SSD, but then you see deals on them all the time.

Probably still wont run PUBG at 60fps

Though surely that would void the warranty?


I also checked as I am thinking of upgrading (I have a 4670K) and the basic 8400 would be as fast as this. An 8600K would be faster. Spend some money on an SSD with otherwise similar parts and you have a much faster machine.

Ah I see!

Thanks for your input, would an 8600K be better than the 7700k for me as I do a lot of video rendering too? I heard i7 beats i5 for rendering but I’m not sure if this is even true at all.

There’s an option to upgrade to 3TB + 250GB SSD for £92

i was going to upgrade manually, but as you said about the warranty there wouldn’t really be a point

thanks for the help

Surely not. I've had systems from overclockers.co.uk in the past and never had issues replacing components etc. I guess it depends on the 'manufacturer'.

The reviews I have seen the 8600k is all round slightly ahead of the 7700k. 6 real cores that are slightly faster just win all round over 4 slightly weaker cores with HT.

Silly comment. What resolution and graphics settings? I'm pretty sure it'll manage 60fps at 640x480!

Failing that, 8x8 or 4x4 =P
I would just build your own PC, I was quoted £1500 but i built it myself and it was only around £1200
The only good thing about this "deal" is the warranty.
Better off building something like this - uk.pcpartpicker.com/lis…PtJ

Lastest CPU.
Dropped the GPU down to a 1080.
Added an SSD
Better AIO cooler

The idea of building a PC is a daunting task for most people.
It's incredibly easy and well worth it. Plenty of information on Google/YouTube, just need to go at your own pace

I put in all the parts into PC part picker and it was more expensive than this price and this comes with a 3 year warranty

It's a decent deal for the kit that's on offer basically. I don't think anyone will argue on that. Whether the kit that's on offer makes sense is another matter.

Spending such a huge amount of a computer, I'd want to be running pretty hardcore analysis on it a lot of the day, and then playing intensive FPS critical games most of the evening.

Personally I play games every now and then with friends, and work 4 days a week on my PC running complex statistics, the 4670k and an older graphics card is fine.

If buying now I'd be getting myself an i5-8400, with a 512gb SSD to run windows and games (plus a normal hard drive for files), and a decently mid-range graphics card (in the 150-200 range) with 16gb of RAM. The practical difference to most people from a really high end to an upper mid range machine like I've described would be near zero (though the mid range system would be faster with the SSD than a high end without), but the cost would be about half.

Naturally there may be a reason to specifically want an i7, or a certain graphics card (say if you run calculations for your work on the graphics card), but in most circumstances it's just wasted.
As for the warranty my first PC was built for me, and I voided the warranty adding a second HDD. Ever since I've just built my own.

Maybe worth checking where it stands with it,though warrenties generally aren't worth much - each part comes with one, and if things don't fail in the first few months, they generally don't fail for a long time (technically know as bathtub shaped failure rates)

That gpu would bottleneck the cpu in high demanding games like 4k or Just pubg at low settings lol, kind of similar to the one I built, with the upgrade to 1080ti and wireless adapter that’s an extra £250added, could drop down the processor to the i5-8600k

although if you customise the PC in the deal and change graphics card to a 1080, with 3TB HDD and 240GB of SSD the price only comes to £1388 so all in all it’s about the same price, but one is built with a good warranty and the other you would have to build

Decided I'm gonna go ahead and snatch it up, their 3 year warranty includes labour cost, parts replacement, pretty standard, but you're allowed to add more memory, install additional hard drives, and upgrade the GPU without voiding the warranty, not that you would need to upgrade a 1080Ti anyway

No, the 1080 wont bottleneck a 8700k.
Building a PC is not difficult.

thebottlenecker.com/ check on there man


it's not difficult, but for the same price why not get it pre-built with warranty?
For this price it would have to be a custom water cooling loop on cpu and GPU. And not even an ssd

I can run PUBG very low settings and render distance at ultra with a 6500 and a 980ti at 60fps no problem. No OC on either.
Bought one for myself for Christmas. Thanks to the government for my benefits and new pc
Aren't there any pics of the case?
Nice system, I think you could maybe build it slightly cheaper, No mention of component brands I.e RAM, GPU. Some more questions I would have for the company are; RAM speed, is the cooling system AIO closed or open custom loop.
