Decent machine in a relatively small case, but at this price, it should've had an i7 K and 1080 to be competitive

I challenge you to build an ITX i7 6700k, GTX 1080, 16GB, 256GB Gen 3.0 M.2 SSD, 1TB SATA system for under £1400 including the case, PSU, Windows 10, Wireless, BT and gaming headset with each and every component coming with a 2 year warranty.

I'm not saying this is a good buy, but your claims for a £1400 pre-build not being "competitive" for not including a £300 CPU or a £600 GPU are, to be fair rather over expectant.

Alright spec for the money, but god it's ugly.

Er....

Select 1080GTX, 16GB, Windows 10, a Wi-Fi card and that's £1457 and doesn't include an M2 SSD

Its an example, I'm not going to actually to go looking for the best deal and this one isn't far off, not miles off, so I am addressing your point of an i7k and 1080 being no where near this. I would take the i7k and 1080 over OPs post any day. Anyone with half a brain can get windows for under £20. You can add an SSD from AWD it for cheap as part of the deal and an m2 is pretty pointless if you are buying a pre-built you won't know the difference.

Challenge accepted, here's a pcpartspicker list that comes in at ~£1400 with a 6700K and GTX 1080 and Windows 10.
https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/user/marklahn/saved/XcCFTW

It lacks the Wifi/Bluetooth, but I dare say most Desktop users don't need that, and if they do, dongles are fairly cheap. Btw, all parts are from the UK(and as such, EU), and includes at least 2 years warranty.

A Geforce 1080 is significantly faster than a 1070, it's relevant in my opinion. If this MSI Aegis was maybe £1200, it'd be okay, or £1500 with 6700k+gtx 1080. that's my opinion at least.

That's not an ITX build

You are being pedantic. The point is this isnt a good deal and a 1080 and better processor is available in the same price bracket so you are wrong.

Bluetooth is useless ob a pc and a WiFi card is £15

Well at least we didn't get 'I can build identical for £500' which is what I was expecting.... then the inevitable discovery of the £500 price list to exclude memory, hdd, Windows, case, DVD, power supply, motherboard etc.

This Dell XPS desktop looks close to the spec of this and is £100 cheaper if using the discount code 'Premium'.
http://www.dell.com/uk/p/xps-8910-desktop/pd?oc=cdx89111&model_id=xps-8910-desktop

although offer ends today then it's back to £1399

It sounds like you aren't listening, but ITX build is possible too, just choose an ITX motherboard + case, problem solved?!?

It's not like the MSI Aegis is that tiny in that case either... If you really want tiny, there's the DAN A4SFX case or the Dr Zaber Sentry coming out that uses regular ATX components...

its argos, it be cheaper in a few weeks with another one of their not so very rare sales:D

back down to £1350 on Argos & ArgosEbay
