£40 for a 1TB WD HDD from Ebuyer

has two 120GB SSD hard drives, add an external 3 TB drive for all the stuff you do not need fast access to (like videos, photos, music) for 80-90 GBP ...

Only has one, that was my mistake. Sorry!

I price up the components alone at about £755 so this is not bad.

Shame you cant choose a nicer case as all the cases they seem to sell look tacky.

That hard drive............... and case ...

freshtech are real dodgy about customer service. limited warranty of 1 year then you're pretty screwed. Also tried to charge me for RMA when it said in their terms and conditions they would rma for free during warranty, stay away imo, overpriced parts with low quality in one area or another e.g crappy psu better off not going for the cheap alternative either build yourself or look for a more qualified place.

In this instance all the parts are branded.

Bad case. Have had the pleasure of one of these in the past and the build quality is less than impressive. If you can change the case then I would strongely advise. CiT are like the poundshop for computer stuff. Their power supply units arent able to give the full wattage or amps they are rated at either

600w is low, for an i7 build they should give more options for upgrades down the line. that cpu should still be able to compete two generations later which means an sli might be wanted or a better GPU. unless there's a major overhaul in Neumann architecture the rigs good for 5+ years easy.

600w is more then enough its has 46 amps on the 12v rail.

I second that, this whole system will consume 300w max under full load.

Use scan.co.uk. You'll find it cheaper to do it that way ;-)


Pcpartpicker does check the price against Scan.

I added heat because its not a bad buy. Just need a HDD or 2 and its a good gaming machine. I have gtx770 which plays everything and its a good 3d card. Power a little light but ok to run and the operating system should be transferable from old PC so i think a ready made PC, nice ram, nice GPU and a good board and chip worth a hot vote. Stick a nice 3d monitor with this and glasses and you could be in the game

My system, with 2 7950's runs no more than 300watts. I doubt this needs more.

Woah, I've got one 7950 and mine is around 400 with an i5

"RRP Price: £1,115.00"?

You're not just saving a tenner or so on the £774 price if you make your own, you're also getting full retail box warranties on the components, the more obvious advantage of that is that said warranties, in some cases, can be anything up to three or five years, where system builders buy OEM in bulk and OEM usually comes with just a 1 year warranty. Plus, you might want to choose your own case, you might find a deal on better performing component for less. I know we get off-topic when we talk about building our own but you have the security of buying from vendors that you are familiar with that you know have great returns policies.

Yep. Unless the power meter I used was faulty, it never exceeded 300w even with my monitor on using the same outlet. Cards were clocked at 960mhz, 3770k, stock, slightly undervolted.

I was suprised it was so low. Everything else I tested was pretty accurate, TV, lamps, and the monitor for example.

My dad has a Bravia 3D tv there are hardly any available 3D content. 3D blu-ray sales are continuously low, it simply isn't for the home. People would have rather have higher resolutions and higher contrast ratios. I wouldn't make a statement like that if I didn't have 3D in my home. It isn't exactly expensive now anyway :') Companies are starting to realise no one gives two hoots and making more smart TV's.

Can anyone explain exactly why this is voted cold? Just priced components similar to what this is and building one from scratch is about the same price?

Can anyone point me in the direction of the best gaming pc for under a £1000 ?
I don't need a monitor,keyboard or OS.
Thanks very much.

A prebuilt one or self build?

..Prebuilt,please me old mucker.
And it would be wonderful if it could be bought on finance,although I could front all the money if necessary.
Thanks for that very pertinent question.

Outside of Furmark benchmarking (where AMD don't throttle as much as Nvidia and IMO they should - although I guess Furmark or scrypt mining is a good stress test of AMD's card's power delivery circuitry), a Radeon 7950 won't pull more than 150W by themselves:
techpowerup.com/rev…tml
Add maybe another 30W for a 7950 Boost/GHZ edition.

So, yes 300W is a bit low but it does depend on the load: TPU's Peak values are based on Crysis 2 and many games won't use that much. A more realistic value is about 450-500W at the wall. I had a chance to measure a 7950 Crossfire system and it was drawing 450W from the wall in Furmark and Scrypt mining but a lot less while gaming. This was a while ago, but AFAIK I couldn't get any game to exceed 380W from the wall. Now consider the PSU (XFX Seasonic made not this cheap Corsair PSU used in this system) was ~80% efficient that's just over 300W draw (380W @ 80% = 304W).

A quality 550W-600W is plenty especially if I had no intention of ever going dual-GPU. That is if I was building, I would rather buy a quality 550W supply rather this so-so CWT-made Corsair.

Hm, don't think much of their power supplies. Corsair VS-series is based on an even cheaper CWT platform than their CX series. With PSU's like that I think you really do have to go overboard and spec 600W for a system which draws 300W.

There was a nice rant against these Corsair VS supplies over at Hexus:
forums.hexus.net/pc-…tml

At least PC Specialists allow an upgrade to Corsair RM although a) they want almost as much for the upgrade as the supply costs on its own, and b) RM is still only made by CWT but at least uses better components.
