Cheers, great spec for the price! Nothing comes close for this spec at this price online, Very 1399 quid and Littlewoods 1809 quid lol Both are exact same spec and model as this.
bit of an odd one, top end consumer cpu and decent-ish gfx but let down by poor storage and RAM... not voting

Storage and RAM are easy and cheap upgrades. This has a hot swap front loading HDD drive.

The KEY is the CPU and GPU and both are fantastic for gaming/editing for the price.

3 year warranty too, you don't get anywhere near that kind of warranty pre building a PC which is nice.

You can spec a similar custom build at CCL a little bit cheaper than this. You can also go the AMD route with a 3600X, twice the RAM and a 2070 Super for sub £1,200.

No 3 year warranty pre building which is the biggest issue tho, can you share the PC part builder with cost comparison to this pre built please.

Not everyone is a fan of AMD tho and there is only a small FPS increase with the super version 5/6 FPS at most.

Brought an Dell Alienware R8 9900k, 32gb ram, RTX 2080ti with 500gb nvme and 2tb HDD from their outlet store just last week for £1,800, crazy good!

CCL build it for you, and it includes a 3 year warranty. An additional £22 and they'll upgrade that warranty to on-site.

I'm not knocking your deal, I just think it's worth mentioning the alternative as you can choose all the parts.

Literally cannot see a problem with it and am suprised its not in the £2000+ range like almost every other pre-built. what's the catch?

On Part Picker UK site I went through a custom build using the cheapest currently available parts and total was 1400 quid, that build is without DVD RW drive, Hot swap HDD and SD Card built in.

That's fine buddy have no issue you mentioning alternatives, it's all about saving people money.

This is one way, your suggestion is another.

Honestly cannot find a cheaper alternative online, the user bootd who posted above suggested another way which may be possible via CCL.

Very has this for 1399 currently and Littlewoods at 1800 nearly two grand same spec! (Closer to price you were saying for this build)

Cheers buddy, that's a great deal you got for the price!

The price for this build for what your getting is the best around currently, the user above bootd has said you can get a similar build via CCL.

Usually for this spec you would be talking about 1400/1500 or more.

I went on PC Part Picker and my total was 1400 quid, that has no DVD drive, hot swap HDD or SD slot and only a basic 1 year warranty for parts.

I like laptops because they are just more compact (thanks London), portability is secondary to me. That said, lately the games are very playable on any decent laptop tbh, so I don't feel the need of the extra horsepower of a full on desktop (for the same price).

Your arguments are valid though otherwise. If someone is not planning to move his rig around much and has space, then no reason to not go desktop.

I get your plus points too with a laptop, just a shame you can never upgrade the CPU and GPU inside laptops and are limited to what you can change sadly.

Laptops are getting better, some mid range and high end laptops are getting there as technology keeps advancing maybe in time that will change.

Not a bad deal but not great.
It's not a i7 9700k it's the non k version so not able to be overclocked.
Terrible hard drive, small SSD, only 8gb ram.
By the time you've upgraded these things then it would be on par with other (subjectively) better brands in better looking cases.
Haven't voted either way as can see how it would suit some people.

You can't please everyone eh?

The RAM is an easy and cheap upgrade, so is the HDD. Think your nitpicking, it's a great price for the spec.

I went on PC Part Picker UK earlier and choosing the cheapest parts came to over 1400 quid and only 1 year warranty compared to the 3 year warranty with this and building it yourself option is also missing some of the features this has.

And on the point of the CPU there is minimal difference between an i7 9700 and a 9700K, also the 9700K is more power hungry and runs hotter than the 9700 which means higher temps with the 9700K compared to 9700.

Don't take it the wrong way but just think you are being critical of this deal just for the sake of it.

Wow you got it in for Medion lol

Problem is your argument about unbranded is nonsense, nearly every part of the components used inside this you will find are made by well known companies that other companies then REBRAND and sell at inflated prices.

- The GPU is Zotac, well known name.

- The SSD and HDD is Samsung well known name.

- The PSU is FSP who hasn't heard of that name? (Only PC noobs maybe?)

The minimum power you are talking about that needs to be delivered is nonsense a 450W Bronze FSP is absolutely fine for the power this needs. Another reference MSI and other big name brands use 450W to power this and the RTX 2060 lol

The CPU i7 9700 draws less power than the 9700K and produces lower temps.

Most customer service agents don't have a clue about the products that seems like a surprise to you...

You do realise the only difference between an RTX2070 and a Super is like 4 to 6 frames max depending on the game lol And you would think it would be better seeing as it's a "newer card" cold hard truth is there is nothing SUPER about the RTX Super's just slightly more FPS and that's it.

You seem triggered about Medion, just pointing out the parts they use many are rebranded into so called "premium" brands.

The cooling fans are cooling fans ffs, some may be somewhat quieter than others but that's about it they do the same job! Are you the type who thinks it's only about a brand and it having RGB or something...

The 2070 GPU uses around 175w to 200w RANGE roughly depending on load, so a 450w Bronze PSU is AMPLE!

The Internet is your friend, use it I do and I have experience when it comes to computers.

OK if I must.

Given that the exact specification and models of each component are not published, do you think Medion will be providing the best, mid, low or the lowest of the low to meet those briefly quoted specs?

The Graphics card is not a Zotac, well not predominately - they even state they will use the whatever is available at the time. "The actual brand of the included NVIDIA RTX 2070 card is not published as it may change during production runs." The only guarantee they give is that it will be a RTX 2070 GPU - you will get the worst possible cooler, no factory OC and the result will be a noisy cards that will be lucky to turbo to a decent frequency given how lowly the case cooling is.

The SSD/HHD may well be Samsung - but again its not stated anywhere so would be surprised if it actually was given there is no mention of the make and model let alone speeds or interface. Samsung make naff OEM stuff too, its not always just about the brand.

I am fully aware who FSP are, but a 36A on a 12V rail is arguably not enough juice to supply a fully fledged RTX 2070 at full tilt for a sustained amount of time, 2060 is fine (I'm not sure why you mention it), its a "Peak power" PSU. I certainly wouldn't recommend anything remotely close to this spec to drive a 2070.

I mention the 2070 SUPER because it it is the same price and of course newer and better performing.

As I said, its not just about the brand the model is important too otherwise you can not deduce the full spec. All you know and all they have to supply is a "9700 RTX 2070 8GB, 1TB HDD, 128GB SSD, 8GB RAM GDDR4 2600MHZ" PC and even then GDDR4 cannot possibly be a thing in this system.

You have absolutely no idea what CPU cooler is present, the frequency of the GPU, what the GPU Turbos too, how fast the SSD is or its interface nor any of the speeds of the HDD. There is no information on quiet the system runs, how efficient the cooling is or exactly how carp the case is - there is more plastic on that than Pamela Anderson! The motherboard is so entry level level its in the basement, RAM is only in single channel and the timings are unknown.

Its a dog! The dredge of the industry and you cannot argue otherwise: uk.trustpilot.com/rev….uk Sling it on a PC tech forum and argue otherwise.

I don't need to "use the internet", I know this.
Poor CPU stay away.
