This company builds very odd PCs, i mean why use an 8700k, 1080ti, 16gb ddr4 and put it in a £30 case with a 1tb hard drive - it's weird

Going by the price of a 1080ti these days it seems ok though

As long as it is functional i.e holds all the gubbins and allows the air to flow who cares whether it has flashing lights on it.I'm just about to put together my own machine; i5 instead of the i7 and only the 1050ti rather than 1080ti but the rest is the same. My case will be sat under the desk so I won't see it.Given heat. You can build it slightly cheaper (approx. £850 for the GPU, £300 for CPU, £180 memory) if that is your bag.


Actually you cannot build this for cheaper (surprisingly) You only included the 3 main parts in your list but excluded the motherboard, CPU cooler, PSU and HDD.

I took the time to make a quick parts list using the available information and the total was : £1490.29 , that is excluding the case and DVD drive (since if your self building you would want a nice case) and also the cheapest 1080ti on the list which is probably sold out so you can add another £50-100 to that total easy.

Prefer this to your previous post - although fresh tech do have lots of differing flavours (cases) to suit other tastes.

Still not quite getting the no OS though tbh.

Agreed, no excuse when they for very little extra could use a s340 and have it actually looking decent.
Grand for the card, so this will not doubt be purchased for shucking!

£400 odd for the rest, which when you take away the card, is actually a very good price!!!

Well that's the thing i guess, hd can be replaced, add ssd, there are many different cases for few quid more, i just like it simple. Plus can be colected in argos which can be usefull to someone, you can also spread the cost over 4 months with paypal without any interests.

This one has a 1080 rather than a 1080ti in the original post
Nobody think it's a bit dodgy that they don't say what make and model the 1080ti actually is? (Could be a Chinese thing for all we know..?)

Yeah, but to be honest it is hard to find a store that mentions which brand it is, pcworld, johnlewis, debenhams and many more. None of them provide with that info..

£30 case


i'd prefer to spend on the important bits. not fussed what the case is
They've also put the top of the line overclocking CPU with a totally budget motherboard

I used to be like that but gradually get deeper into the scene the case becomes a very import thing, before you know it the cases costs you £200+ and you don't even care lmao, but of course this build is for someone who justs wants the shineys i.e 1080 ti / i7 8700k

its easier to sell with less than with more simples

This is what i dont get with these £1k + prebuilts. If your spending this much on a PC your going to be an enthusiast so the first choice is build your own and choose your own components. Otherwise, unless your paying mega top doller your going to get a machine with some serious shortcuts to (un) compliment your awesome cpu and gpu.

At least the recent ones on here have got modern cpu's. Not £1400 for mayaswellbesandybridge Kabylake boxes.
Voting heat as for the price this is really good.

Make sure you purchase via credit card as the company is working to very tight margins so will be aiming for maximizing turnover and minimizing on service/support.

Ensure that it works as expected for a week solid before you think about tinkering with the insides or getting rid of the packaging. If any problem contact the company and arrange for them to rectify under threat of returning before the 30 days returns period.

After that it is likely you will be on your own.

Good price for the spec, If you are an enthusiast then just stick the case, mobo and any other components you don't need on eBay.
No OS os a good thing. I'd rather not be paying £50 odd (or whatever it is) for an OS and pay £5 on eBay for a perfectly legal key.

the £5 key from the likes of ebay and amazon will not be a legal one. It will be from someone who has stolen the key in some way - ie got hold of an oem key or a corporate key. Sometimes they work, sometimes they dont. If it doesn't work you will be given another until you have one that does work. Either way it is not legal. And providing a key from a disposed computer also is not legal. the key belongs to the computer that has been disposed.

I have no need as I am covered under the company I work for licencing arrangements.

However the few quid licences you are talking about are OEM licences, hence I don't understand why the OEM is not bundling unless MS have recently blocked that to only the big brands recently?

You probably have better sources than me - I can't locate anything similar with an I9 processor for less than £2000

Microsoft have woken up to the abuse of oem licences, especially from companies that spring up and then disappear. Although this company does appear to have been around for at least 4 years and seems to be trading profitably.

aye - which leads to me pondering - is it really to save a few quid? are they cut out from it being possible? is it to simplify their model by not preloading or maintaining images and in effect supply it hardware assembled only?
They aren't the only one I see doing this albeit not the mainstream brands.

because they cut corners where possible to make it look valuable

I think they call it marketing

Well i thought gpu price now is arround 900~ cpu 300~ and ram 180~ this budget motherboard is 100~ so everything else is free i suppose. I can't see how you could get i9 for that price correct me if i am wrong

Yea people always think high numbers are better... Like a R7 240 2GB vs 4GB - makes no difference at all - well other than to your wallet!
12 month warranty, it's a joke??? Every part has 3-5 years in every shop where you can buy them and bild pc.
