Spec looks great for the cost of it!

Comes with a GTX 1070, which is usually about £350 on it's own.

Looks fantastic for a starter machine for people who don't/can't build their own machine.

More powerful one here for £699 (although not much in it):

I'd actually argue the £699 option is better value. For an extra £100 you're getting an extra 8gb of ram that's worth almost £70-80, a 240gb SSD, and a slight processor bump.

They employed the same guy from argos, from a few weeks back?
Some crazy deals today.

This is actually a really good deal. Just factoring in the processor, graphics card and the hard drive comes to about £550, that's not pricing up the motherboard, power supply, RAM or the OS, and a three year warranty too?

If you're not interested in building your own this is genuinely a very good deal. I'm tempted myself, but I'm saving up for a Coffeelake machine.

Crazy price. They will go in minutes...

Agreed!

Fantastic deal.

This is an awesome price for a pre-built machine. It'd take some deal hunting to create one for that price yourself let alone have it already made for you.

Having been out of PC building for a few years, what's the processor in this like - is it current or previous generation?

Good enough to not bottleneck a gtx 1070

Technically previous gen but only released late last year and has plenty of power for the foreseeable future.

I wouldn't want to wake up in the morning next to that!

Very good deal - wish I could afford it!

The £699 model is amazing value - HERE

£365 for cheapest 1070 I can find, £160 for the i5-6500, £116 for 16gb of that HyperX makes £641. Which leaves £59 for the case, power supply, 2tb hard drive, 240gb SSD, Windows 10, 3 years warranty and the fact that it's already built. That's a crazy deal.

Man, I spent ages doing that and it's expired

Great price!

Wish I knew I wasnt going to be between two addresses before I got an MSI laptop
Overspent on it for less performance and no future scalability.

Also, max ram is 32gb (not 16gb)

Heated, amazing price for a PC of this spec. Would advise anyone wanting it to go for the £699 one, which is still showing as in stock ATM. You really don't want to be hobbling a fast machine like this with a HDD only like in the £599 one. a SSD will make a huge difference to perceived performance in everyday tasks and loading times and 240GB is generous as they go.

The £699 one is an extremely competent gaming machine, which needs nothing else adding for years to come and will run current and future games very well indeed.

Kinda wish I was buying a PC now as I would have picked that one up in a flash. But I have a decent gaming PC. Pretty old (Ivy Bridge 3770) but still holds up pretty well, couldn't really justify changing it for another year or so, but very tempted after seeing this!

Go here for the other one if someone still needs one:

hotukdeals.com/dea…411

Yay, ordered the 699 one. cheers OP

Awesome. Overkill with the graphics card. Only really worth it for the graphics card. The rest are nothing special, but with the graphics card the deal is awesome.

Bought one, but now this offer expired?

Yay, ordered the 699 one. cheers OP

I did too.... That's the best price compared with eBay etc too, similar spec was going to cost me £150 to £200 more...

I suppose stock was very limited and you lot took it all. The £699 one is still available, still a great price , but the £599 deal was better value for me as I don't really need the extra hard drives or memory - I can re-use what I have.
Edited by: "fiqqer" 10th Oct

I took too long and now the £699 one is out of stock. Its a good job as I don't really need it but really could do with the graphics card - these sell for around £400 on their own!!!!

OP Thanks for the heads up on this. Managed to bag one of the £699 ones.

More than happy.

If it turns up.

Agreed, for the extra £100 over the OP's expired deal you get double the ram, a 240gb ssd and a slightly faster cpu. I'm tempted myself, but haven't had much time for gaming in recent months and don't have the money at the moment.

I actually think the 699 model was the best value but it's unfortunately been snagged now too.

That is an awesome PC - but there is nothing I do which justifies the spec !!!

Wow, this and the £699 one are fantastic value.
They can't be making ANYTHING on these?!

Gutted missed out on the look out for one. Any other sites got a same spec computer for same price ?

Tempting as it may be to upgrade. I'm holding out no matter what for Nvidia's next trick. That's when 4K gaming becomes mainstream. The equivalent of the next-gen 1070 should slightly outperform the 1080 hopefully.

Those are valuations of worth, not necessarily current market cost.
Looks like both builds were bang on the money.
You obviously get it pre-built too, but that can be as much a blessing as a curse, so holds no value.

Strange post. You've basically made up prices. Just cos you think a new 1070 is worth 300 doesn't mean you can get one for that price. Anyway back to the real world...

Does anyone know the case name? Looks like you can mount a fan on the side panel but can't find the case specs anywhere

Agharta3 h, 57 m ago

I wouldn't want to wake up in the morning next to that!



Damn. I've been threatening to return to the PC for a while and being out of the loop for for over 10 years makes me confused. I would have snapped one of these up as it's not difficult to swap over to a more conservative case. Spending that so close to Christmas on myself however I might just have been waking up next to it!

Yes! that is it thanks, want to buy a fan for the side panel but doesn't say the size anywhere!
