Except the OP said they didn't know much about PCs in the original text on the post. They could have been about to spend a lot to plug it into a 60Hz 1080p monitor for all we know (but I see a 4K TV below). I personally *can* afford a 1080Ti, but I can't condone spending that much extra on a frankly overpriced GPU when a 1070/1070Ti/1080 does so well at 1440p 144Hz.

Looks like a good deal to me. The only thing is when spending that much on a PC rig I would prefer to hand pick the parts and build it myself. Just a preference but most enthusiasts (Pros) would feel the same I think. All in, the parts plus delivery would possibly cost more than the asking price. Heat added.

It'll only be used for gaming. At the moment I've got an LG oled b6 to plug it in to

OLED is only 60Hz too. You could get away with a 1070.

Why would you use a tv as a monitor, wouldn’t it have a high input lag? Yes you can put on gaming mode on some but it won’t match a monitor.

I don't use one as I haven't got a pc I'm looking to buy a pc. The input lag on my TV is around 28ms @ 4k 60Hz + Hdr so that wouldn't be a problem for me and the picture is great on the tv

Decent specs for the price apart from the lack of an SSD. Tallied up what I've spent on my 8700K build recently and it was north of £2000 and only has a 1070ti
If you want to water-cool your 'weapon' realistically when playing Battlefield you really need to wee on it when it begins to smoke.

This may increase FPS and whilst it may well short circuit it might keep firing long enough to save you from the Huns and Turks.
no SSD, peasant tier PSU, entry level z370 with a non overclockable cpu.

if i had £1500 to burn on a gaming system I would research parts myself and how to assemble it rather than blow it on a prebuild made with odd parts that a builder wanted to get rid of.
Edited by: "plath" 2nd Jun
Upgrade the PSU to 850-1000 watts. Then you won't need to upgrade for 4+ years at the earliest for PSU.

When I see deals like this I think what mug would spend £1500 on a PC nowadays... but my first PC was a second hand Pentium 90 with a 40MB hard drive and Windows 95 that cost me £700

Do you think you could really build this with a better Motherboard and PSU for the same money? I'd be all for build myself but if something goes wrong finding the problem would be a nightmare.

I honestly think it's not a bad deal and anyone buying this spec for this particular price in 2018 isn't a "mug".

I'm no expert but a google check shows:

UK Inflation Rate, 1995-2018 (£700)

According to the Office for National Statistics composite price index, the pound experienced an average inflation rate of 2.75% per year. Prices in 2018 are 86.4% higher than prices in 1995.

In other words, £700 in the year 1995 is equivalent in purchasing power to £1,305.02 in 2018, a difference of £605.02 over 23 years.

Compared to last year's annual rate, the inflation rate in 2018 is now 3.10%

Swapped out the RAM for Corsair LPX Vengeance and substituted the case for one of equal value. I would add a boot SSD and drop the graphics card down to a GTX 1070 unless you are gaming in 4K.

I totally geddit.

Without people buying at the high end the prices won't come down for the low end users. I wasn't knocking the O/P mainly stating a fact that I purchased a second hand PC in 1995 when PC's were only becoming a thing. The guy I bought off must have spent a lot more than £700 for his upgrade. "Mugs" like him and me back then drove prices down, the same is true today.

Gave heat to the O/P.

Second this, I use a 1070 with PG279Q. Handles games well enough!

Indeed, I recently upgraded from a 1070 to 1080 because "the price was right", and have been unwhelmed by the performance difference, nothing I couldn't have got from turning shadows from high to medium or similar. I'll likely be sticking to GTX XX60/XX70 upgrades in the future as they seem to offer the best performance/price ratio.
My first PC was bought second hand and when the HDD failed it cost me £200 for a new one with a whopping 20MB storage (double the 10MB one it came with). It was only an 8086 with a Hercules mono graphics card running Windows 3.0 (and struggling). How times change.
If you don't want to have to build one yourself, then this is a good deal for a build with an i7 8700, 16GB of memory and a 1080ti

As mentioned by others, you'd probably want to get an SSD fitted - with a spec like that it would be a shame not to have your OS boot from SSD. Budget around £120 for a 500GB SSD and find a friend with some technical know how to fit it (or give CCL a call and see if they can add it).
Also, there is no mention of Windows, so you'll need to get a hold of that and install it as well
Water cooled for $1500, i would nothing less than champaign coolled for that price. lol
Water cooling maintenence will require some knowhow. This is not a "set and forget" system. Worth keeping this in mind. Overall a good price for the hardware but agree with others, I'd like to pick my components, at the very least an overclockable cpu. Little point in all this cooling power for a stock cpu.

Also for 4k60/1440p 144hz gaming you do need a 1080 ti, I run a 980ti (similar output to a 1070) with a PG279Q, which performs well at 1440p 100hz, but still requires some setting tuning to make it return anything close to 100 fps in pubg. G-sync helps too. I also push some games to the TV at 4k 60hz but it requires more grunt than I have for fluid fps gaming. Works fine for games like total war though. Looking stunning, even if fps is in the 40s.

Heat for the find OP, but would not buy this system as a newbie. Get something with a good air cooler and pre-overclocked, much easier to maintain/clean/move as required. Welcome to the money pit world of pc gaming
I'm out of touch with PC building but this looks like a fair amount for the money but an SSD plus the 2TB drive is utterly necessary for me.
My first proper Windows PC back in Sept 1995 cost £1100 and was a Pentium 60 with 8MB ram, dual speed CD rom and Win95. That was pretty much low range even then and needed upgrading within 18 months.

Amazing how far we've come

Aye. Bit of a bold claim. I imagine it might last a year or 2 but then will require a full disassembly and rebuild.
Never run a custom water loop myself, after seeing the amount of pain my buddy went through with one. May have become more mainstream friendly in the last few years but I stand by my original thought that a comp building newbie +custom water cooling are not the best mix. However, easy enough to learn to do this stuff, once you are patient and thorough.

Edit:oops. Just looked closer. This is not custom oc, with pump, reservoir, fittings, etc. It is a closed loop for cpu only. So should be fairly plug and play.
No wc for the gpu though. May have a nasty noisy fan. Hence undoing the lovely quiet operation of that closed wc loop
