Hi. I was unfortunately screwed over by currys with the amazing £699 vortex deal. I ordered, then arrived in store to be told I wouldn't be getting my order. Anyway this seems a decent price for a 1080 rig with windows and all the components already configured. I'm looking for a rig for myself but I can't pain myself to spend anymore than what was on offer with the currys deal for what was an amazing spec

Mm. The processor is Skylake, at this price I'd expect Coffee Lake. Also you really don't need an i7 for gaming.

Overpriced imo but prebuilts always are. You're probably paying a 300-500 quid premium for the sake of not building it yourself here. If you're happy with that then go for it, not for me personally though.

This deal is going to go cold very quick... correct me if I’m wrong but you can probably build your own for that money.

Don’t mean to rub it in but I secured that 699 deal but I missed out on the all-in-one Lenovo deal with the 1070 (999) had a 2k screen as well... so it’s just one of those things you get lucky some times and other times not so lucky... don’t beat yourself up about it

The i7 is so I can handle solid works at a somewhat acceptable standard, and for anyone who may need to do editing etc. Although, I'm not so clued up on pc's to be fair

You can build a better system for £200-300 less imo. Just quickly did a pcpartpicker build to see what it would cost to build one of similar spec and it came to £1280~. Thats with a 250gb SSD, aftermarket cooler, prob a better gpu,psu, etc...

Depending on what you are trying to do with Solidworks on a budget in may be better to aim for an i5 with the spare cash going towards a better GPU for those extra cudas.

I just did it really quickly you could save money on ssd, case, psu ,cpu cooler etc.. RAM is also really inflated atm didn't realize it was so expensive lol.

Didn't they only get released a week ago?

And from what I read on here, the CPUs don't seem to improve much, if any, from generation to generation?

This is usually true but to my knowledge the coffee lake cpus (8700k) has a higher core count compared to the skylake cpus (7700k) which probably improves it greatly in cpu related tasks. 7700k has 4C 8T vs 8700k 6C 12T.

Thanks for that , that's a way better build, all round.

An other option My choice and not even tried looking for cheap components. Does need 2Tb drive added so add £60.

Not saying the processor in this machine isn't capable, just saying if I was sinking a grand and a half for a PC I'd the latest and greatest, not equipment that's two generations behind.

MiniITX form factor means limited upgradability. 2 DIMM slots and only a single 16xPCIe expansion slot. As it is, it is probably maxxed out.

You can get this system with an i5, 8Gb RAM and a GTX 1070 for £880 from LaptopsDirect, which seems like a much more balanced setup, with room to upgrade at a later date.

You would normally be correct but due to intel being scared of Ryzen they have finally increased their core count from 4 to 6 after almost a decade.

So he can get a larger, lower speced machine for less money?

If you want an i7 / 16GB / 1080 I would just go for it now.

For the price I think is should have a bigger SSD that 128gb

Fudge me, Ram is insane atm!
I paid £55 for Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB (2x8gb)3000MHz just over a year ago.
I knew it had gone up but now the price is about £170*??? three times the price? what? insane!

you should put a warning on that link, warn people to sit down first!
lol

*edit, should have clarified £170 is the price of the ram I have now not the ram from the pcpartpicker list

Go for a £1500 PC with a 6700 non K cpu that is 2 generation behind with a budget mobo, slowest DDR4 2133mhz ram and cheap no brand PSU?

This is seriously bad time to buy a PC with coffee lake coming out this month, £1500 can get you a way better PC than this if you built it youself, and if you cant, just go to a pre-bulit website that built the pc for you will get you much better moneys worth

Yeah, If i knew i would have stock up on RAM and dealing them in the back alley right now

Trouble is Coffee Lake is just a paper launch at present, a bid from Intel to pour water on the Ryzen fire; there is absolutely no stock available anywhere.

Yeah I wouldn't buy it on principle, glad to see AMD offer real competition.

The case looks a little bit like K9 and that's not a compliment.
The internals look similarly low quality and nasty.

At least if you build it yourself you can choose quality components.
I'd start with a decent quality PSU (which I doubt this has).

Building yourself would make it easier to upgrade in the future. It only has the necessary ports for the two hard drives, so if you used the SSD for a boot drive and the other one for storage you couldn't then buy a 6TB storage drive and transfer stuff across because you couldn't unplug either of the original drives. Could use a usb adapter i guess. Also only two ram slots, but 16GB is decent.

Alienware Aurora is about this price and worth a look.

You could build this spec yourself for half the price. Total rip off.

Look at cex for parts too. They have rams, hdd really cheap and 2yrs warranty.

£1,500. Way too much even with a GTX 1080 as they're getting closer to £400 now.

How is this receiving any heat?

I think most people are fed up with the vastly inflated prices of new components on PCs. I'm still rocking with my ancient FX8350 on my main PC due mostly to the price of stepping up and the idea of going for lower core count on an i7. I think coffee lake will be my next step as six cores isn't too bad. I'm looking forward to seeing how the GTX 1070ti shapes prices on the GPU market and hopefully it will bring the cost of the original 1070 down a bit as well.
