  • ASUS® TUF Z370-PLUS GAMING
  • 16GB Corsair VENGEANCE RGB 3000MHz
  • 11GB GEFORCE GTX 1080 Ti

You know a PC deal is good when this is the level of counter argument.

It can’t be configured, that’s the whole point of the review unit. Easy enough to add, though.
Ah yes apologies you can't configure the HD but as you say you can add though

Good deal
3 year warranty : 1 year parts - 3years labor. What kind of rubbish is that as most single components have 3-years warranty?
Don't like the case at all. Seems like it's upside-down! System as a whole is pretty good value though.
Great price. Down to £1661 if you select no OS.
Great deal, you don't really get better than a 8700k and a 1080 ti - totally destroys my PC lol.
Great deal, only £1661 without the windows 10 licence (which you can buy elsewhere for a few quid). I'd be tempted if it weren't for the imminent ryzen 2 and potential volta / ampere on the way in Q2 (though there's always something around the corner!).

Is anyone know if I'd change something in the case, the warranty void? (seems very good deal to me)
I have several high end rigs I have self built, this is not bad at all

You could scavenge the MB, GPU, CPU, RAM, PSU etc and sell the rest

Get a nice Fractal case, some decent Noctua fans and you have a decent setup

I would never dream of buying a prebuilt but this is not too shabby at all
I do a lot of photo and video editing (just an amateur - but lots and lots of this) and am hoping to step up to editing 4k. Is this machine overkill for this. I'm traditionally a console gamer but as console lifespan gets shorter and shorter I figure I may as well start pc gaming - as you can tell I have very little computer component knowledge. Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance...

my son got a computer from pc specialst at xmas and I rang and asked if I put a hard drive in it would it be ok and they said it was fine and wouldn't effect the warranty


in the end I didn't put one in but if i do put one in Id send them a email and wait to see what the reply was and save it to cover yourself

Im not an expert, but for video editing I think more RAM would be more beneficial than some of the other high specs. With that being said, you should be quite comfortable more often than not with 16GB.

To answer your question though, I do think this could be overkill if gaming at the highest end isn't the priority - but it's a bargain so why not go for overkill.
Edited by: "coljwood" 13th Feb
Different video editing softwares place the strain in different areas. Some hog the main cpurpose and ram, some utilise the graphics card memory. If you are spending such sums of money you will do your research beforeand.

Anything apart from the motherboard, CPU and case will NOT void your warranty. You're free to upgrade any other component with our systems if care is taken.

As our components are still priced at MSRP we're looking very competitive even to the self builders, strange times we live in!

How much it cost???
I had £1000 limit in mind for my custom, then seemed it was way too low for high end, I remember spending alot less years ago and been a mean machine, 80gb Hdd was £80 think I had gig of ram, 2.4 ghz pro and a 5.1 surround, ran the best games

It’s non conductive liquid. Spilt some liquid on mobo when trying to set up the water cooling stuff and my PC still runs buttery smooth 5 years later.

Twice as much RAM as myself, you helping to keep the country running too!?

Edit - I still find it funny that you can have such amazingly powerful computers compared to 5/10 years ago and run it all on like 850w's. We're on track to stop global warming!!
Edited by: "dezontk" 14th Feb
I built something very similar to this a few weeks back. It was £1910 I think. Much of that was of course the ti mining tax.
Edited by: "Balfington" 14th Feb
Most important part is
Psu. This one has tier 2 i think
So upgrade to corsair or evga g2 about another £30.
Awful motherboard, so-so ram, not really seeing the value in this tbh.
As a heads up, you can build this cheaper, with a Tier 1 PSU, a 240mm water cooler, and extra storage. You'll also get a three year warranty, rather than one.

PM me for more details, because I'm sick of being trolled.

great price. lop off the windows key to save 89 quid and buy ebay special for 3 quid!.

not everyone wants to build their own and some like a full system warranty.

Can you post the pcpartspicker link? When I tried with identical components it was about £1100 without the GPU so £1660 with a 1080ti was not happening.

Why do identical components exactly? Spend the money where it actually counts. They don't even list all the parts they use for a start, what 1080 Ti are they even using? Looks like a blower-style card to me.

Looks good if you're not bothered about the light show or future SLI (PSU) I do much prefer your case also. That said, I still think the original deal is great value considering its pre-built and tested.
Edited by: "ck_" 14th Feb
Anyone know what brand the 1080 ti is? Hope it’s not a blower or Armor that would be a deal breaker for me
The 'build your own' brigade are noticeably subdued on this occasion.

That PSU is more than enough, it's a Tier 1 and way better than the one in this prebuild.

Also, SLI is dead. NVIDIA are slowly killing it off.

RBG is tacky and for children.
