Tempting for a card itself lol
Card would be about £300 of the value
People are buying builds like this stripping the GPU putting in something like a 750ti and flipping them on Ebay. Not a bad plan
That is extremely good price considering the 1060 would cost half that easily on a self build. Thought at £600 you would only get the 3gb one but its a 6gb card too. Utter bargain!

Only negative imho is the case as i hate those ugly bulging out the front type ones but thats a personal preference and small detail really...
Great price. Ugly case. heat
Thanks for finding these gems Ussasx! Not looking to buy but for others this is excellent bank for buck and with OS. Good spot!
1060 6GB might cost £300, but that's nowhere near what it's worth to a gamer. £200 tops.

That said, this looks like a pretty good deal; performance worth its price.

Any idea if it's 2x4GiB, or 1x8GiB?

The problem today is that the value of any graphics card is determined by miners, not gamers.
i believe this comes with intel b150 mobo so basically pretty ****

Great price... but, it's refurbished one
250 gpu, 100 cpu, 50ram, 50 hdd, 50mb not really something special for 600.

Ordinarily I'd agree, but:

It's £580 after discount code & cashback, not £600.

The GPU is £300, not £250.
The CPU & mobo is £200, not £150.
The ram is £70, not £50.
HDD is indeed £50.
PSU & Case will set you back £60-70 too.

£300 + £200 + £70 + £50 + £60 = £680.

So it is a significant saving over the components alone.

Admittedly they aren't the components I'd buy if I were building it myself, and in the near future we might see significant price adjustments after Ryzen refresh & Intel b360 mobos are released.

But if you're buying a PC today, right now, this is IMO a good deal.
Ugly.
3 months warranty is unusual
Showing as out of stock now
Don't know where people are getting there 1060s from but on gumtree I've picked a EVGA FTW 1060 6gb for 180 and MSI 1060 6gb for 150... Gumtree is your friend
went up to £639 before showing OOS.

Well, the closest guy to me is wanting £330 and he has never mined Etherum allegedly, whatever that means lol

This company got a habit of messing people about with refurbished. Normally sell way more than they actually have.
hotukdeals.com/dea…e=2
its not a bad price I guess but here's my self build

zotac 1060 3gb mini £190
crucial 8gb ddr4 2400 £72
asus z370-f mobo £176
core I3 8100 £99
tp link wdn4800 dual band wifi £25
samsung evo 250gb £65
case £20
psu £20
total - £667

I also managed to split this between 4 amazon accounts to save £40 on their recent £10 off a £50 spend so total was £627. I know the gpu is worse but at least I can update the cpu when the time comes and my warranty is at least 12 months rather than 3. Most of the parts came from amazon too so easy to source. Oh, windows 10 £3.50 from ebay I guess for me building your own works out better than this deal but appreciate this isnt an option for some people. If thats the case though Id recommend a better warranty.

Travel a little way to save more money? He's saying he's never mined the crypto currency etherum with the 1060 he is selling. I use gumtree for most of my builds is amazing
People saying the card is £300... It's £300 brand new, this is not. So I would probably say it's closer to £200.

Terrible build with a crippled GPU and CPU and by the looks of the price a cheapo PSU and Case.... Needs £500 spemt on it to put it right lol
Mine being delivered today
Bonus!
Although the box matches the advertised spec, the actual machine has an i5-7400 (Kabylake) not an i5-6400(Skylake).

While not a massive performance improvement, it's definitely welcome as the CPU is the weakest component.

I guess Acer refreshed their later production runs with whatever they could get hold of.

It also has 1x8GB 2133(Crucial CT8G4DFS8213.C8FDR), and 3 free ram slots, which is both good and bad; good for future upgradeability, but bad for current performance (only single channel)
