2080Ti +8gb system memory....

2080Ti +8gb system memory....
I'm far from an expert but it definitely seems weird on some parts... 650W power seems quite low... 8gb RAM... And not even a cheap secondary hard drive
Not a good deal
Cold from me. If you want to spend nearly £2K on a PC, at least get a 512gb SSD with 16GB ram
Only 8GB of system RAM and 240GB of storage, at this price
Where are all the comments saying you dont need more than 8gb for gaming?
“I’m looking for a new PC, tempted by this, any thoughts? Seems a good deal for the parts, more memory would be nice. No idea what the company is like to buy from though“

This comment suggests you already have a PC, what is stopping you upgrading it? There’s not many people that would have a rubbish non upgradeable PC, then just splash out £2k on a new PC...
The specs look horribly unbalanced for a 2 grand PC.

"240gb SSD Solid State Drive with Superior Read + Write Speeds"

I'd run for the hills with things like that on the spec sheet...
Edited by: "rcom" 13th Aug
Minor thing but only 1 HDD with only 240GB. You will definitely need another big one for storage. Also doesn't say if its a SATA SSD or m.2 nvme (Aorus z390 pro has a slot so it would be a waste not to use it).

Components wise it does look like a good deal though.

The PC I have is a works machine. I’m not paying to upgrade something that I don’t own

Here you go: 640KB is plenty enough.
Cheers for the comments though guys, not had a proper gaming PC before so at least I know now what to look out for. Much appreciated all.

What are you planning on using it for? £2k is a huge amount of money to spend on your first ‘gaming’ PC, if that’s your reason. You would also need to spend a big chunk on a monitor and accessories to compliment a PC of that value
Well I am voting hot because it seems like a good deal for a I9 and 2080 TI. Could the people who voted cold post a better deal please.

That’s what I initially thought.
Yeah this is one of the weirdest prebuilts I've seen; they're cheaping out on components that have dramatically dropped in price this year (RAM & SSDs), and the PSU, which has never been expensive (650w Bronze is junk, should at least have a quality 750W Gold in there). Wouldn't matter so much if you could actually customise it; the main purpose of a prebuilt is that you don't have to faff around installing components and (re)installing Windows...

That's how some PC builders get you, put a few decent headline grabbing high end parts in there and put lower grade stuff elsewhere or don't include it at all.

650w is plenty but they are using a low quality psu. I suppose you get a warranty but as soon as that is up I’d drop in a decent quality psu.

As for 8gb RAM that is just stupid on a rig like this.

This is a good price for what it is but needs a psu and RAM upgrade. Adding another 8gb carries some risk of issues, you really want to use a 16gb kit to avoid any possible problems.

I definitely think £2k is overkill, however if that’s your budget then fill your boots. If you’re not in a rush, wait for some better eBay codes to pop up. I only have a GTX 1080 and run 4K absolutely fine, admittedly it doesn’t run at 60fps on every game but would please most.

Lucas have a look at this monitor.

overclockers.co.uk/lg-…tml

144mhz
IPS
1ms response time

No HDR though if we compare it to a similar Asus swift gaming monitor but a better response time and price.

Just my 2 cents as i'm in the market for a monitor now as well

Ah yes, sorry, my bad.

My personal preference would be 144hz 1440p over 60hz, 4k anytime though.
Probably worth checking personally first what works better for you Lucas

It depends on the types of games the OP will play, if you play RPG style games that have great visuals then 4K is much better. If you play a lot of esports/competitive games, then 1080p or 1440p is going to be much better.

I’d argue that a 650W PSU isn’t enough for what I’d assume will be an overclocked 9900K + 2080 ti.

It’s a really strange prebuilt pc to me.
This would be good to buy take the board, cpu, gpu and install into your current system then put your old parts into this and flog it as a full pc

It's not overclocked and it's probably just as well considering they have a £20 CPU cooler in there.
Much better deals if you don't mind refurbs from Dell - these are currently available as I write this:

38258464-gI1ed.jpg

If you're new to Dell, you can get 10% discount on those price and if you're a student 15%.

I've bought loads from Dell Outlet over the years and generally always been perfectly fine. If an issue, send it back for full refund. If it's more scratches than you'd like, they'll happily offer another 10% as a partial refund. You'll also get on-site next business day warranty.

Recently bought myself a new Aurora with i7-9700k, 1080 Ti, 32gb ram, 512 SSD + 2TB HDD scratch and dent for £1550 and has been perfect. Keep an eye out for coupons.
If you're comfortable, look at building your own. It's not always that much cheaper and does take a bit more work, but it can be pretty fun and you learn as you go. It's not as daunting as it seems!
Gaming PC 101

Get an unlocked i5 K series Chip on a middle of the range mobo.
Get 16gb 3000mhz ram
Buy a graphics cards from the xx70 range (85% of performance of the flag ships for half the price)
Get an NVMe boot drive and a cheap storage drive.
Get a decent power supply (Seasonic etc..)

Enjoy 99% of AAA title on max settings for 1/2 - 2/3 the price of this weird prebuilt system
Edited by: "Tyranicus66" 13th Aug
Hardly any savings..
gpu + cpu + mobo that's about £1800 plus £200 for all the other

Like super hyper fast sdd but they don't even mention the manufacturer

And quite cheap 8GB RAM that just looks embarrassing coupled with all the gear above.

8gb ram and bronze PSU...

Well, the comment I replied to assumed it was overclocked, but by all accounts the cooler in this will just about do for stock clocks so any sort over overclocking is out of the question. Never mind the other bad component matching, putting such a cooler in a build like this is pretty pathetic. The case won't help much either...
650w bronze psu - avoid
You know what. It might only have 8GB RAM and 240GB SSD. But this is a incredible price. Considering the GPU costs about £1k. The CPU costs about £500 and a £150 motherboard and a £80 case. For a pre built this is a very good price. Personally though I would rather go for a Ryzen 3900x system.
