I would buy this if I hadn't just got a new computer. Really top notch find!
Heat added - wish I had that kinda cash burning a hole in my back pocket, I’d have gone for this. Will have to slum it with my current build for a bit longer I think

Came to say this, plus also 7700k, now a gen old at least as well as 1080 which is 2 years old... so what I am really saying is that the price of things has gone up massively, or the value of the £ has gone down massively. Either way not great for us as pc buyers. One good thing about this deal is that pcspecialist make decent and reliable pcs and have got a few from them myself over the years. However I do think hotukdeals.com/dea…208 is better value, the RAM is faster, bigger ssd, an optical drive, better psu, case aesthetics... personal preference.

Cold, two year old components at this years prices. Tiny M2 drive, 1080 isn’t a flagship card and 16gb of RAM is a bare minimum, not generous
In terms of a gaming PC (aesthetics aside), is this a better option that the other gaming PC posted a few hours before could anyone tell me? (https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/stormforce-typhoon-gaming-pc-i7-7700k-gtx-1080-8gb-256gb-nvme-ssd-3tb-wd-hdd-16gb-ram-144999-box-2905208#comments)


Thanks

Doesn't GTX 1080TI cost £200 more then a Regular 1080 but only has 5% performance increase?

No. It's much more than 5% faster.
Think I saw 30% bounded about somewhere

Got to agree. My brother recently purchased an alienware aurora R7 with 8700k and 1080Ti with 32gb 2667 ram albeit with no nvme ssd for about 1500 on dell outlet. Yes, it's the outlet and costs more but has a good bit of performance increase. It was a customer return with little to no scratches and full one year onsite warranty which can be extended anytime. For same kind of money, I know where my money would be going. If you don't mind refurbished which are often little to no use, keep an eye out at 3pm on dell outlet.
im not so sure this is as good a deal at the Heat meter shows, the components run to about £850, add 100 for the Win licence and your still a ways off the cost here....the 7700K runs hot out of the box too or so i have seen in many tests....with just 16gb of lower end Ram too......a bit chilly from me

Yep. A lot of people here noticing this - it's way overpriced for the spec (for one - that memory, ha ha). You can get much more than this for the money - though, understand a lot of people won't want to build their own.

The graphics card and processor alone are getting close to £800.

The 1080ti and the Titan XP are the flagship cards
This is not really a deal as you can build the same thing at the same price or lower, but component cost of GPU/RAM is through the roof, unless you really need to upgrade, better hold off for half a year or so

These two can be had for a lot less than £800 between them... its only the current idiotic run on GFX cards thats artificially running up card costs.....

Looking at the the page one review said the 1080 was a zotac mini which has never been below 420, there is a deal on currently for the 7700k for £253, so £673 without taking in to consideration the GPU price-hike, add another 150-200 for the price-hike. If someone wants a prebuilt PC now this deal isn't terrible, otherwise you are going to be waiting at least 2 years for the prices you are expecting.

The cards are spec'd very differently. If you watch the video at about 24 seconds it will give you the specs

11GB vs 8GB ram
Higher memory speed
325bit vs 256bit memory bus
3584 vs 2560 shaders
250W vs 180W

It's approx 25% faster GPU wise and gives huge boosts to performance.
