Mine is being delivered on Tuesday so can confirm then, i have a usb wifi adaptor just in case.

Actually an 'okay' deal. Think it would cost around £850 to build in parts (roughly).

Great for VR too.

Voted hot, seems like a pretty decent deal to me. Actually tempted to order one myself cause as someone has already stated, this is quite close to the price for building yourself but without the hassle! Obviously a SSD and i7 would be better but for £850 I'm finding nothing to complain about!

Yes i did add up parts before buying it and came to around same price as this so obviously prebuilt, with warranty and windows 10 a nice bonus.Saves me building one..which i have not done in years, i ordered from nectar site as they had a promotion with argos for a few days, not sure if still on, 4 points for every pound so roughly £17 back (after 60 days)

Hot deal if you don't want to build, max out all games argos having a few decent gaming pc deals recently.

is that PSU correct?

450w is more than enough to power this although no idea what quality you're going to expect.

Tempted myself, but would rather just build myself to be honest. Seems a steal price wise though if you're after a whole system.

Yeah, I've been looking for a good deal for a little while, former pc gamer stuck on PS4/Xbo due to space in my old house! Just moved and the spare room is becoming a little gaming den, this will eat the games I want to play alive! can't wait!

Wot no SSD?!?

When I stopped building PCs the minimum was 600W of good quality PSUs. I did not expect for the requirements to go down TBH

Any idea how W10 would work if I would swap system drive for SSD?

Back in the days when a GTX 480 used 300W and your pentium 4 used 150W, big power supplies were necessary.

These days a quad core draws 65W, the 1070 draws about 150W, and this thing isn't bristling with optical drives or LEDs. It just doesn't need more than maybe 300W... assuming the power supply can actually output that safely mind you, a lot of the cheap ones can't.

A similar Ryzen system I parted up was only showing a 350w draw. PSU's are getting more and more efficient in low/mid end. Only the insane top end throws efficiency out the window I find.

Should be simple, as far as I'm aware the license is primarily tied to the motherboard rather than the drive with 10 - should be a quick and painless swap. My only concern with this tbh is whether or not you void your warranty doing that.

Confirmed wifi enabled on this PC.From spec list on Medion website.

This model also has a nice hot swap bay for easily adding a ssd /hard drive,also comes with a metal plate, something to do with Graphics card options possibly, will find out more tuesday.

Had a couple of Medion products over the last few years. Wouldn't touch another with a bargepole.

Awesome price. Even if you build it yourself around same price, of course you do have full control of what components rather than this where you may get less quality parts but still a solid pc here.

Really not a bad deal, but regardless of your views on how much juice it actually needs I'd whip that PSU out and replace it with something nice, branded EVGA/Seasonic/Superflower - just to avoid the hassle when the cheap nasty PSU pops.

I was surprised when putting together a build on pc specialist that it came up with a warning that an 750w PSU was way more than the 350w required for this build. They actually tried to recommend a cheaper and lower watt unit, even said they don't like to overcharge customer. Crazy!

Good price. Good deal.

But it would be tragic not to install a SSD boot drive.

Not exactly hot imo. Make sure the warranty is great if you insist on going this route.

Also add a SSD to the price. Its a crime aginst humanity to not use one nowadays

A high power PSU can be less efficient, more expensive to run and hotter at low power levels than a lower rated unit.

I built a similar rig for less with a 1070 and 32gb RAM. Plays everything over 60fps.

Is this generation of i5 significantly worse than the equivalent i7? 850 quid seems quite expensive for the mid range processor to me.

would this be ok for vr?

The Graphics Card is Leaps and Bounds better in this PC compared to the one you have shared but the CPU is a slightly higher model in your link as well as improved RAM, its a tough one as the price gap would be consumed by upgrading the card to 1070 as it is approx £250 more for a 1070 than a 1050. if you are considering both, and its for gaming or VR go for the Medion from OP IMHO.

Tempted to buy on 12 months interest free credit, been wavering the past few days. Already got a Medion from 5 years back that is still going strong.

Just ordered to go with oculus I bought a few days ago. Quidco giving 1% cashback

Great card. CPU isn't that great for the price. Weaker than my 5 year old cpu.

Voted hot. £849... a good £400 of that is on the 1070 card alone, (yes you can get lower than that if you know where to look). I just built a ryzen 5 1600 pc build with a gtx1060, evga 650 watt psu, crucial 16Gb RAM, seagate 2Tb hdd, Corsair Carbide spec alpha case, Gigabyte 350m motherboard. For a total of 729.95. Having a 1070 instead of a 1060 would most likely bring the cost on par with this offer. the only advantage building one have is you know what goes into your PC. 849 i5 with a 1070 is a sweet deal in any case

If you have access to xexec.com, perhaps through your utilities provider... you can get an 8% discount using argos e-vouchers bringing cost down to £781..i did not mention TCB as last 4 items have not tracked for me so lost confidence in it.
