This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Hi all, spent quite a while looking for a good components for a self-build PC and thought it might be worth sharing for others to benefit. The link only takes you to the PC case see below for full details.

Specs are:

£131 -AMD 2600X 6 core, 12 threads
£87.95 -ASUS TUF B450-PLUS GAMING

£35 cashback for purchasing these two together - link (Thanks to Robatiki94 for link in this thread.

£57 -16GB DDR4 3200Mhz RAM
£43.94 -480GB Patriot SSD
£50.42 -EVGA 700W Bronze PSU
£29.99 -EG RE75 ATX Tower Case
£ 329.99 -MSI Radeon RX 5700 MECH OC 8GB Graphics Card (dual fan not blower)
£ 12.99 -ASUS PCE-N15 - Wireless-N300 PCIe Adapter

Total Price = 743
Minus cashback of £35

Price after Cashback= £708

Couple of things to note here:

- There is a promotion with the RX5700 to receive either Borderlands 3 or Ghost recon Breaking pointfor free as well as a free 3 months xbox pass.

-It was a difficult choice to not go for a 2700X/3600 processor for only £50 more but at present the 2600x should not bottleneck the RX 5700 and my budget is already pretty stretched so I felt spending the extra on a good gpu rather than going for a 3600/vega 64 combo was the right choice for gaming performance (I game at 1440p).

-If you have the extra cash and opt for the 2700X then you will receive a total of £55 cashback for purchasing the above mobo and the 2700x so only really an extra £30 for the 2700x compared to the 2600x.

- 1% cashback from all the items from Ebuyer (everything except cpu and mobo). I did not go through top cashback for the CPU and mobo as it was only 1% and did not want to chance this impacting on me claiming the £35 cashback from ASUS for buying the mobo and CPU.

-No OS but can source your own from Ebay for a couple of quid.

-Not a fan of overclocking or flashing/modding scripts but apparently you can flash the RX 5700 so that it performs similar to a5700 XT (although the 5700 alone offers very good performance so I will not be doing this - don't have the knowledge and it's a lot of money to risk on the card).

-Furthermore as my budget is stretched i'm just sticking a 480GB SSD in for now and will add a couple of TB Hard drive for xmas to finish the build

-The 2600X should be easily enough for 1440p gaming at 60fps for the next couple of years at which point you can upgrade the CPU only and you will still have a machine which is very good as the investment in a good gpu now should pay off for continued good performance for the next 3-4 years.

Hopefully this helps someone!

Very refreshing to not see any hate and just discussion, feedback and support. Clearly the PC builders are good bunch!

Great deal, great that you spent time to put it together. Voted hot!

Sorry, it's just that your Sainsburys security guard post was quite funny. I have no problem with people not liking the parts I've linked in this post, as noted above I could have perhaps chose some better parts myself such as a gold rated psu, but at the same time try to appreciate it is so easy to say 'there's a better deal out there' but provide no evidence of this.

No problem, hope it helps, there is a listing on HUKD for the RAM on amazon also for a similar price if it is unavailable with Ebuyer now but both Ebuyer and Amazon have been going in and out of stock for this RAM frequently so just keep checking and plenty similar RAM for the price.

Heat for effort
Could be wrong I have same mobo sure there is only one pcie for graphics and none for the wifi
Would this be powerful enough for VR? Oculus
Lower wattage Gold PSU would be a better choice. With those specs a 550w Gold PSU would be more than sufficient and even if you did want higher wattage (650w) for future proofing spending extra on the PSU is never a bad thing. £69 gets a 650w EVGA GQ Gold PSU, not a recommendation but that's the ballpark for such a PSU

Brilliant thanks
That's a great job with description.Heat added for the whole bundle.
I would deffo swap out the psu with at least gold rated. It's like buying a 30k car and putting £30 part worn tyres on

amazon.co.uk/XFX…8-3 Sorry, working now?

If anyone does get the XFX card, just unscrew the plastic trim on the top and front and its massively better in cooling (not attached to heatsink in any way). Otherwise its decent, no worse than the mech out of the box but cheaper which is crucially the whole point here.

This is probably the best case you can buy for £30. Well-built, decent size, tempered glass, 3xRGB fans + controller and remote. Not sure there is anything I don't like about this case - definitely a steal for £30.

I have had my main gaming PC plugged into a power meter for a long time now and really they never pull down as much you think they will. Maxed out this system is only going to be 300 watts or so.

A quick tip is to cap your frames. I play most of my games on it capped to 60FPS and with that, the components are just ticking over. Typical system load is only about 150 watts.

That's pretty much all the power consumption you'll see with this as well on most games if you were doing say 1440p and 60 FPS

Looks good for the price, not a fan of tampering with bits though and I never like buying when item descriptions look shoddy in the link you sent, just my own preference but definitely good value for the price although I think I would have still bought the one in my link in truth.

Yeah I thought maybe around 400w full load considering the gpu is somewhere around 200w (from what i recalll looked at soooo many gpu's my head is spinning!) and the cpu around 100w plus load from other componenents (probs minimal) just thought i'd best give myself some headroom, though I take people's point that maybe a 500-600w gold psu might have been a better choice.

No it wouldn’t, at least no without a good deal of extra cash
Min spec can be found here

There’s no GPU and you need something decent
It only has 2 x usb 3.1 ports ok for desktop VR but if you want to do room scale your going to want 4 x usb3.1
You’ll want a 2nd ssd OS on one game on another for better performance
£15 or so more and you could get an M2 card that would way outperform that SSD.
If you wanna save money get a cheaper PSU and Mobo

GPU is an RX 57000, easy peasy VR gaming.

Also is it not 2 x 3.1 USB, 2 x 3 USB and 2 x USB2, looks that way from the pic anyway taken from the link above.

And an additional x2 USB2 and x1 USB on PC case too.

I would imagine you would be fine, hopefully others will confirm this.

Please post these deals, might help people. I don't want to criticise but you have one deal posted from 2009 and it's so easy to say go find a cheaper whatever but not support this with any links, if it's that easy please just add a link to it, as I struggled to find better myself and tried to scour this site for good deals to help build this, which is where I found the PC case deal from, the RX 5700 deal and the 2700X deal for £169 previously but I definitely would have appreciated more PC parts related posts to look through. It will be my 2nd PC build from scratch so quite new to this myself although I do try to do a good amount of research on things before purchases.

Anyways it's always good to post deals and help! Often times it just allows for discussion on these topics which helps loads, it makes the site more like a forum for tech support as well if we have a lot of active deals

My bad could only see the 2x3usb
it’s 3 usb3 min for room scale
Headset + 2 monitors
I run headset and 5 monitors

Usb3.1 give better signal over distance kinda needed for full room scale (even with active usb 3 cables single degradation ment it kept dropping monitors swapping to 3.1 as per oculus technical support fixed it

Overall a decent looking build, however I would have suggested going for a Ryzen 5 2600 as you can get one for £117 on Amazon right now for virtually the same performance, and the difference can be made back with a slight overclock should you feel it is necessary. I am certainly glad I picked the Ryzen 7 1700 over the 1700x, Still hit 3.8 GHz 1.288v no problem.
Does that motherboard take nvme or do you need an x370 for that?
Any chance of switching in a cheaper graphics card?

Any chance of switching in a cheaper graphics card?


This is what I posted in the original (now deleted) thread. Have you tried VR- Are you sure you want it? There is a cheap 590 deal in the last 12 hours [£167, now expired...] (I will make that a link in a few moments). What monitor or monitors are you planning to run, specifically I guess if you are in a hurry their resolutions and target refresh rates?

I bought a Vega 56 on release and have only used it to it's full potential a number of times (probably under 10!). I don't game much these days. It depends of course on what you personally prioritise.

edit: do you really need the oomph for just 1440p and VR? Which headset are you going to use?
Edited by: "Zoea" 21st Oct 2019
nice list very helpful ...AMD CPU you tend to get more bang for you buck than Intel I would personnaly go for an Nivida Card over AMD though as I like my geforce experience over LAN for my shield TV PC game streams. But other than that a good solid list nice work man.
