looking at some £1281 in parts.

price built with windows! £1105 after discount.

some dis items but still very good value..

massive thanks to shozzy69

for confirming some MB/PSU aspects on this knew it was worth more then £1100 in parts.. so some nice additions..

overall a nice price system, some dis items but still very reasonable build for the price,
not a bad system for 3900x interest buyers, im a GPU over CPU user though.

Heat for the deal and the break down
£460 spent on a cpu, but no SSD.

Definitely over priced for a gaming pc as that cpu offers little to no benefit compared to a 3600 or even a 2600.

Great summary though op so I won't vote

its a bit of a strange one, which is worth investigating, as it doesn't add up this one, as ur right no SSD.

some retails moan about struggling times in the market.......

but if they would be more informative they may get somewhere. dire advert for a 1200 build to clear..
dont bother voting on this one folks.. i need some more information unless someone wants to take a gamble... hopefully they get back to me, anyone in currys in here?.... let us know... whats what..

on another note the SSD is a mistake, but if its got a 3900x with a good PSU.. typical hdd, and a decent mb under the hood, no rocket science a decent builder will buy it, strip it down and correct it. and save..
Not that bad though is it?
Why is this a gamble sorry?
Jordan_Taylor06/01/2020 16:33

lack of info kills it mate, would u buy a 3900x pair'd with a DS3H?

very odd, seeing as the 3900x has been out how long and? no SSD... its got protention to come up trumps if they get back to me or if someones had one previous on here.

Yeah true, super cheap board but i guess you've got part warranty?

valid point but at a 3900x level with some rubbish board and psu, isnt worth the risk at these prices, id rather be more informative with my knowledge of PC parts and find out what exactly in it, and i know Currys are slow at responding but ive popped it on in hope someone has had one and can give me more information to update it..

hotukdeals.com/dea…070 i guess this has msi parts i think
yeah its a nice build that one..

much pref this type:
hotukdeals.com/dea…234

as i said in the post ^ would be more inline to what id go for, but someone might wanna have a 3900x so thought it was worth posting n asking to get some feedback from anyone who's had one... someone might need more cpu power then gpu power lol...

I would phone pc specialist themselves they are very helpful 03330117000 All there other systems have an SSD I think it may be missed out on the specs
Tornado. Dam sounds badass. Take my money
Just spoke to customer services, They have tried to have a look on their systems and cannot get any more info than what is listed.
They said they would raise the call to marketing team in pc world side to get further info so this might mean it could get pulled if a pricing issue.

On the ebay listing it does say 30 day no quibble money back returns so might be worth the gamble
I think it’s missing 256 GB SSD in the description. Looking at the R7 on Currys website that one comes with additional SSD.

dang.... im voting HOT HOT FOR A CURRYS DEAL i must be ill....
Edited by: "sarden84" 6th Jan
Wow i have no idea if to get a gaming pc or a gaming laptop 🙈
I wanted a render PC and this looks good value. Worried about the mobo and PSU.
Ok so you think for around £1110 after voucher is a good or really good deal?
@Jordan_Taylor It can be a good idea to buy a good gaming desktop and a cheap laptop if you need the portability for work. In most cases its wasted money buying a gaming laptop.

And I think this is a good deal at the price with the voucher.
Edited by: "themonk82" 6th Jan
Might sound daft but can you use the voucher twice?

Good idea

I'm torn between getting this and the 34" curved Samsung display or a razor blade 15 2060. Think I'm going to sleep on it and think if i need portability

Good purchase mate...... uve got a CPU for the future!!.. XT will do u a long time, and then when it comes time for upgrading.. sell the XT.. bang in a higher one in and at the same time or year 2 years or when ever ur feeling thirsty for more... n ull get a nice kick back on the XT used anyways.. , flog the psu n upgrade it in 15 months n ull get a nice sum back on that used too, end of the days very very decent deal.

and at this price uve paid builders cost on parts.... so if u not 100% on pc parts n exchange stuff down the line..... when ur not gaming, get learning.. for the future.
