Posted 6th MayEdited by:"sarden84"
So pretty much most people know i like seeking budget bargains when it comes to PC parts or Prebuilts systems

one of the most popular deals for the past 4 months has been CCL Stryker package.
which consider of 1600AF CPU with a RX580.... for that ultimate budget Gaming PC.

I did this on behalf a member on here btw.

which can be found under CCL link after their URL:
cclonline.com/pc/…03/

for £573.99

i put the challenge to Palicomp.co.uk to quote beat that.

the reply:

Name - ******************
CPU AMD Ryzen R5 2600
Mobo ASUS Prime B450M-A
RAM 16GB Corsair DDR4 3000MHz
SSD 240GB SATA III £32
Case Cronus Metis
Gfx AMD RX580 8GB
OS None
HDD 1TB Seagate BarraCuda
PSU 500W 80+ Rated PSU (Kolink 500w B PSU)

Their price: £575

the difference:

1) getting a case with additional fans, then paying extra for a fan kit.
2) 2600 than a 1600AF.
3) Corsair Ram, then Adata ram.

i think thats a good deal guys..

The Stryker deal has been somewhat cheaper, its a live tracker package, and riding somewhat high, so previous buyers need not worry ive posted it when its been competitive, but atm its not, least here with the quote your getting extra for your buck, then pay more cos of the market.

BTW these 2600/2600x are due to be expired, so remaining will go up and replaced with the 3300X which is going to take over this range price cpu, i can tell u something as much as there is some advantage on that new cpu, with slight bigger cach, that new range is a 4core cpu..... this is a 6core 12thread CPU... so expect this line to go up and be exile.. and the chance of the 3600 reducing yet.. nada, they wont make it to close to the new 3300x,

so if ur looking for something of alternative here is another RX580 8GB line for consideration, & they have got stock in.

im all about giving choice's and finding competitive packages, and sometimes u got to work them.

PS: this one is a Phone Call Order. or an email order.

but the future plan, i might just wait untill this caos virus.. gets better.
im going to challenge them all.

im going to have to make a fake name, fake email.. think of £600 build part which most cover.
and see what they quote, and i might throw in some errors, and review how they judge that, and feedback on timescale.
-- thought in motion, for future.

1) review email timeframe. 2) do they correct issues. 3) how much over for the total per cheapest of them parts about 4) how much over there own base part rate,(cos if thats more compet, then u could play with each firms cheapest going on). cos each firm has good rate parts and then others have others,)

9400f? u mean?
9400F does offer better FPS then say a 2600... but they come at higher price and the prebuild lines are general not as competitive either, however ryzen has alot more threads so there is a bonus there.#

price/performance is better value here than the 9400F......... if ur going to jump to the 9400F on the basis than jump to the likes of the 3600instead.

ignore userbenchmark btw,.. as they now fav intell hell of alot and are very biased.

Okay noted, just trying to do as much research on a decent build before pulling the trigger.

Generally looking for something that can play games like modern warfare or rainbow 6 at high fps.

We've used them at work before, nothing major but they seemed alright, never contacted support, but it's nice they write back to the OP. I tried asking AWD-IT something, never got a response.
Got to say they need to modernise their website.

I've got an 8400 which is probably like 2fps slower than the 9400. It's a great cpu but the 1060 is minimum for me. Runs everything I have but its really showing its age in the latest titles. You can get good fps but you have to turn stuff down. Id worry about it in a years time. Plays anything on the xbox gamespass great though.
Runs the Warfare BR ok though but not played moden warfare.
I also have a ryzen cpu but that's paired with a better card.
I'd personally go ryzen just because you can buy a £100 cpu now and put in a cheap 8 core in two years time on the same board.
Only reason to go 9400 is if you are looking for a good pc with no view to upgrading it at all.
But you definitely need a faster card than the 1060 for any longevity.
Mmmm look at that airflow... Fans stuck to glass. A+ lol
I've been lurking into a few PC threads lately because I'm interested and wanted to get some advice. Many people say that there will be some new chips/GPU soonish and advising to wait a bit. Isn't that always true? It's really difficult to judge when it's worth going for a deal or not. Also, there seem to be more deals in the mid-range 500-650 segment than let's say around the 800-900 mark. Any particular reasons for that?
I am currently looking for my first PC and I am really interested in this offer!

I have emailed the company and they have said they will match this price, I have then asked for a price on upgrading from RX580 to RX590 which they have quoted at an additional £100 (sounds a bit pricey to me, what do you think?)

I have also asked for a price on an upgrade from Ryzen R5 2600 to 3600 which they have quoted as an additional £65 which seems quite reasonable as I assume they would need to make sure the motherboard is upto date to take the later gen of Ryzen? Would the Cronus Metis case fans be sufficient for this CPU?

Thank you in advance for any help

I wouldnt jump to the rx590 in this market, and yes thats pricey, the gap is £30....for the fatboy rx590 which is pretty much out of stock most places,...... in yesterday market. about 200atm, and hell of alot of RX590s have jumped to £300!

avoid...

if u want to jump 1660 super....... then 5600xt / 2060......

Ryzen 5 will last u afew years at good settings, and the RX580 will do too at decent fps if the typical rate continued, and as time goes along and games get even more demanding, plenty of options to reduce settings down a little.......... but however the market will be drifing as games will be developing for newer tec for the higher gpu/cpu aspects and using new features, which this has and hasnt been fully used by the market previously, so expect a very good strong performance on the older lower cpu aspect and high gpu memory to be having a decent advantage for quite sometime in 1080 gaming,

yes. theres always a new cpu or gfx on the way so people say "wait until then, itll be better". but you just end up waiting forever as when that comes out theres something else on the way. get what you can afford when you want it.

probably more deals in the 500-650 range as more people can afford it so theres a lot more competition. as you go higher up its a more exclusive market. the high budget spenders are willing to pay more so the sellers dont budge as much on the price. plus they probably have less margin to play with on the more expensive products.

Frank_Lethbridge07/05/2020 10:58How long would this pc last me? In terms of years, I have one currently and have been informed it's weak.

impossible to say, depends how fussy you are with your graphics settings. if its "weak" just turn them down a bit more. a pc could last a decade or more if you dont care about your graphics too much. if your pc is "weak" maybe a new graphics card will give it a boost for a few years (if your power supply can handle it) not all games are cpu limited so upgrading the card can work for most games. installing an SSD if youve not got one can help a lot too..

Thanks for the info. Really appreciate it
the newer AM4 Zen version is coming later in the year.

nevermind that.

we do have the 3300x coming in soon under the current zen, this is the one what they will be talking about.

heres my thought on the 3300x.......

So its not long now untill the 3300x comes out and replaces the Ryzen 2600/2600x at that £120 price tag, but what is this new cpu, well in gaming performance its a cpu what would be just under a 3600......

so must be good yeah?...

Considering their isnt much jump between a Ryzen 2600x to a 3600 on a low GPU, and more worthy to spend money on a 2600x on launch and spend money more on gpu, would be the key, which it has over the past 12 months, and past 3 months getting the 1600Af over the 3600.

So this new CPU will replace that idea....... more on GPU.

as 1) its faster, only under a 3600 in gaming.....

however this new CPU is only 4 cores,......... it might be good at single /quad core. but its not a Ryzen 5 6 core 12 thread,
this CPU will be a short lived CPU, market will be changing, gamers dont just game, the cores will matter from a ryzen 3 +5 aspect,

and sadly 2600/2600x will be lost, and than 1600af............

high performance 4c o which will give a good bang, but thats it, in my eye the 3300x is here to kill the amd older ryzen 5s to make way for the newer ones, it would be a bad move for amd to release ryzen 5 4600, when u got 1600af/2600/260x/3600 still kicking rear....... they will get rid of them give a afew months break to sort their line out and the 2600/2600x will be forgotten obso parts.

for a low GPU user there isnt much in it in FPS between a 2600x/3600.. and this new quad is under a 3600

so if u want a budget Ryzen 5 now is the time to get before they become obso,......... the 3600 wont move down into the 3300x price as the marketing will be for 3300x.. that keeps the board happy...

i would not jump at a slight single/quad core cpu which would off an ever so slight jump over a quality decent ryzen 5... any day of the week...... if u want, these will go up. just like the 1600x! has.. go price check that, ud be fool to wait if im honest, and im not saying buy this from here or there, but the cpu in general if u want a budget good cheap ryzen 5... 1600af/2600 now, cos time the 3600 gets to this price it be a while!.

The cpu will last a while. I know 8 cores is the next big thing for games but 6 cores 12 threads is still going to be fine for a while.
You can still even just about get by with 4 cores.
The 2600 is good enough to push a 2080 rgpu and that's got plenty left in it.
I'd say 580 is good for a year. Could last more if you don't mind dropping the details and only require 60 fps. But it's definely the weak point.
But it's not a bad price.

it costs slightly more and will give slightly better performance.. depends on your budget. if you have the extra £80 then itll perform better. its easy to keep creeping upwards with the budget when buying a pc...

bear in mind it lacks the 1tb hdd and doesnt have an operating system.

use the 580 for a year or two.. then sell it on ebay and put that cash towards another gpu thatll last another year or two. at the 4 or 5 year mark if it starts to struggle sell it all on and reinvest the cash in a new £500-600 rig. rinse and repeat...lol

Seems like a backwards step replacing 6c/12t with 4c/8t chips in 2020. I cannot believe people who buy a 3300x will stick with it for long.
Thanks for the advice. Much appreciated.

Yeah you could keep yourself topped up with reasonably priced 1080p gpu's.
When you need 8 cores the likes of the 3700x or 3800x will probably be £130 or so. Easy enough to drop one in.
This is a decent base to start if you aren't building your own.

Makes a lot of sense! Thank you! Will keep an eye out for comparable specs but with better GPU. Willing to spend a bit more and invest in a good GPU (also NVIDIA is a must for me because of some applications)

Many people say that there will be some new chips/GPU soonish and advising to wait a bit. Isn't that always true? It's really difficult to judge when it's worth going for a deal or not. Also, there seem to be more deals in the mid-range 500-650 segment than let's say around the 800-900 mark. Any particular reasons for that?



Hi pal..


I missed this question sorry.
let me answer this using CCL, because i know their website like my own rear. SAD i know!.

They have a package called "raven" which is suitable for 3200G / high mhz ram, on the a320 line, they added the AF to it at my request... its good for rx570.... 1030 low gpus, but its not competive in this market atm.. (old deal ive posted).

They have the Mini Stryker, its using the mini Bolt case, started of with 2600.......+... very competitive, £20/30 above live rate for the build.. one hour lab, plus extra warranty... its a live item.... so i posted it when its down, expired it when its gone up, reposted again, maybe done some mb tweaks, storage tweeks in the past just to keep the base unit even on the sales, as its a live tracker, things ive managed to get into this: extra cases, RGB FANS. 1600AF, can be done upto say a 2060..... gpu.

The larger stryker, same as above, abit more prem on the mb to start with, but can go a little high on gpu, 2080.... for instance,. how ever the virus has killed it, no longer has the 1600af, and cheapest cpu is 2700x...... so very high and the price on the gap to value is very high...... so this was once a nice one to up a little more then the mini,.. cos if the base unit works good then the upgrades use to be per the market gap,........ not so..........

then they had the Ronnin deal which started at 3600.. for the first 2 months of this year it was part value to build price, bang on.. and covered the 700-1000 just nice..........same basis as the mini/big stryker parts on the gap value going up.......... they even messed up once and forgot the add the price of a motherboard lol!.

3 main packages by CCL....................... good for 500 /1000 lines. 1 has vanished, 1 is been messed up, and the other is up n down like a yoyo.

u go into their prem range...... ud be looking at a gap of say 800 parts, 900 sale.......

my good old ccl deals were based on the 500 aspect but upping gpu / mb but u go into their full prem range i.e 70quid cases, 100mb high brand ram, its just way above, them lines are better to self build.

good thing with CCL i was able to pick direct links to the parts i auto linked, where other firms u cant, so i played there own game between the shift of the tide.
